Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that your Luxury Dental, PC, dentist inserts in your jawbone where you’re missing teeth. Their biocompatible material fuses with your bone tissue as you heal from the procedure.
After healing from surgery, a dental implant provides a strong foundation for dentures or other dental restorations, like crowns or bridges.
Implant-supported dentures attach to your mouth with dental implants. They represent a significant technological improvement over traditional dentures, which stay secure in your mouth via a suction mechanism or adhesive.
The team at Luxury Dental, PC, might suggest implant-supported dentures as part of a full-mouth restoration, giving you a brand new smile with improved function and aesthetics.
When you replace a single missing tooth with a dental implant, the relationship between replacement tooth and dental implant is one-to-one; in other words, you need one dental implant to replace one missing tooth.
When you get implant-supported dentures, you can replace an entire arch of teeth with four strategically placed dental implants.
Implant-supported dentures also have considerable advantages over traditional dentures. Your implant-supported dentures connect directly to your jawbone, so they feel much more secure and stable in your mouth. This means even greater ease and comfort when you speak, chew, and smile.
Your dental implants also stimulate the bone tissue in your jaw, which doesn’t happen with traditional dentures.
When your jawbone isn’t properly stimulated, the bone tissue can begin to resorb or deteriorate, which is why so many denture patients experience bone loss after a certain amount of time.
With implant-supported dentures, you can rest assured that your bone tissue will stay full, strong, and healthy.
In order for your dental implant surgery to be successful, you need to have healthy gums. If you have gum disease, the team at Luxury Dental, PC, has to treat it before you can get your dental implants.
Dental implants also require you to have substantial bone tissue in your jaw, since they need it to anchor in your mouth. If your jawbone is lacking, your dentist can perform a bone graft or sinus lift to enhance the amount of tissue in your jaw.
