Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically put in the jawbone underneath the gum line that lets your dentist fix replacement teeth or a bridge into that area. An implant does not become loose like a denture can. Dental implants are also beneficial to general dental health because they do not have to be anchored to other teeth, like bridges.
Implants become one with your jawbone & hence provide steady support for synthetic teeth. Dentures mounted on implants shift in your mouth which is an especially important advantage whilst eating and talking. This helps the bridges and dentures as well as individual dental crowns placed on implants which feel more real than traditional dentures or bridges.
Ordinary bridges and dentures are not comfortable or even possible for some, because of sore spots, bad ridges & gagging. Added to this, ordinary bridges are fused to teeth on both sides of the space which are left by the missing tooth. A benefit of dental implants is that no neighboring teeth are to be equipped or ground down to hold your new replacement tooth/teeth in place.
How To Take Care Of Your Implants?
Most dental implants are effective, and there are a couple of steps you can take to help make your implant last longer.
- Oral hygiene like brushing twice a day and floss once daily. Brush using brushes that slide between teeth which can help clean hard to reach places around your implants.
- Quit smoking.
- Recent examination and cleanings by dentists can help to ensure that your implant is in great shape, and that it stays that way.
- Don’t chew on items such as ice and hard candy which are hard in nature as they can break the crown and your natural teeth.
