Millions of Americans loose teeth either from decay, gum disease such as gingivitis or injury. For many years these people were given two options; dentures or a bridge; today there is a third option. Dental implants in Bloomingdale offer benefits that are simply not available from dentures or a bridge.
A dental implant is a tiny titanium “screw” that is permanently implanted directly into the jaw bone. Once the implant and bone have fused, it becomes a “root” for a crown that looks feels and acts like the natural tooth it replaced.
The advantages of dental implants:
There are many advantages to dental implants, among them are:
Appearance: It is virtually impossible to distinguish the implant from a natural tooth, implants look and feel natural and they are permanent.
Comfort: No need to deal with the inconvenience of removable dentures.
Eating: Dentures are prone to slipping while eating; you can eat all your favorite foods without any cause for concern.
Self-esteem: With dental implants you can retain your beautiful smile and continue to feel good about yourself.
Durable: With normal dental hygiene you can expect your implant to last for your lifetime.
How are dental implants placed?
Once the oral surgeon has determined the precise spot for implantation of the titanium post, the gum is opened and a small hole is prepared in the jaw bone. Over a period of a few months the bone and the implant become one, this is the new “root.”
A small post called an abutment sits on the top of the exposed implant; the abutment holds the new tooth. The new crown is built from impressions that are taken from the area.
Often, a patient that needs several teeth will use dental implants in Bloomingdale to support a denture.
