Reverse the Consequences of Missing Teeth with Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Nobody wants to suffer with holes in their smile, a sagging jaw line, or the inability to chew or speak properly. However, these are often the outcomes when teeth are missing or lost. Missing teeth can also put you at an increased risk for tooth decay, gum disease, and bone loss. While dentures, bridges, and crowns may seem like the first choice for tooth replacement, these solutions do very little to impact your total health and often require “re-learning” how to eat and speak with the devices in place. Dental implants, on the other hand, mimic the natural feel, form, and function of your natural teeth, making them an optimal solution for lost or missing teeth.

Nearly 70 percent of the adult population is suffering from the loss of at least one permanent tooth due to accidents, tooth decay, or gum disease. Finding viable tooth replacements is a science, and over the past two decades, dental experts have perfected the dental implant to be an ideal solution.

With a 95 percent success rate, dental implants are a suitable option for most healthy adults. Dental implants cost less than dentures and bridges, when you consider that they rarely have to be replaced. Most dentures and bridges have to be replaced two to three times in a lifetime. Most patients report positive outcomes with dental implants.

Dental implants can replace one or several teeth and involve inserting a titanium post into the jawbone, which is fitted with a crown to exactly replicate the appearance of a natural tooth. Over time, the titanium fuses with the jawbone and the implant essentially becomes part of the body. This effect ensures that the implant not only lasts a lifetime, but that it preserves all the functions of the teeth and protects the health of the bone and surrounding tissue.

The natural feel and function of implants allow patients to return to their normal lifestyle. There are no limitations of food choices, activities, or the need to “re-learn” speaking, laughing, or chewing. And, dental implants ensure that you look as good as you feel, supporting the facial structure, too.

Do You Qualify for Dental Implants?

Healthy people whose teeth, gums, and tissues have reached full physical maturity and have experienced tooth loss are all candidates for dental implants. Your dentist will review your medical history carefully and discuss your lifestyle to ensure dental implants are the best choice for you.

In addition to what dental implants cost, other considerations include:

Existing medical conditions. Patients with poorly managed hypertension or diabetes may not be the ideal candidates for dental implants. Your dentist can help you assess your condition to determine success of the procedure.

Dental problems. Patients susceptible to cavities or who suffer from gum disease are still candidates for dental implants. Your dentist in Clearwater can work with you to address these issues and ensure that the implant will be a success.

Having dentures or partials. Implants may replace or stabilize other tooth-replacement devices.

Smoking. Smoking negatively impacts your overall dental health. While smokers are still eligible for dental implants, it is advised that they quit smoking to optimally benefit their overall health.
