Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth. A dental implant acts like a root of an artificial tooth. It is fixed into the jawbone with a dental surgery and so it can facilitate permanent artificial teeth.
Missing teeth replacement is important because the gap created due to lost teeth destabilizes surrounding teeth and leads to further teeth loss. In addition, dental implants help preserve facial structure and prevent bone deterioration, both of which often occur when teeth are missing.
Dental implants can support a single artificial tooth or multiple artificial teeth. They are made of dental material like titanium or zirconium. Once dental implants are firmly fixed, artificial teeth, dentures or crowns are placed.
Reasons for teeth loss –
- Age – Elderly lose teeth due to aging process or due to dental diseases
- Dental cavities – Tooth decay and dental cavities eat teeth from the inside and lead to teeth loss
- Gum diseases – Gum diseases like periodontitis leads to gum recession, inflammation and finally teeth loss
- Other disease conditions – Diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes and arthritis can cause tooth loss
- Trauma & Injury – Accidents, injuries and trauma to the oral structures can cause teeth loss
- Tobacco & Smoking – All forms of tobacco are known to cause dental problems and ultimately teeth loss.
- Teeth extraction – In many cases, teeth are infected beyond repair and have to be extracted.
Advantages of Dental Implants:
- Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting the adjacent teeth.
- Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into the missing tooth space.
- Restore a patient’s confident smile.
