Placing Your Restoration After Your Dental Implant Is Set

Your dental implant is able to provide lasting, dependable support for a dental prosthetic because of its secure position in your jawbone. Before starting the placement process, your dentist will examine your jaw structure, and look for any issues that might cause concerns. If you are approved to move forward with treatment, your implant will be set directly in your jawbone, occupying a space that once contained your tooth root. Once this occurs, it will be time to have your restoration placed. Your dentist can secure an individual replacement tooth to an implant. If you need to replace several teeth, or a complete row of teeth, it is possible to count on implants for larger prosthetics. In fact, they can even be used to lock dentures into place!

Why Implants Are Beneficial When You Need To Address Tooth Loss

Implants create a level of stability that can improve your daily experience with prosthetics, while also adding to their functional value. A successfully placed prosthetic should be capable of staying stable when you bite and chew food, and should not feel loose or unnatural.

Implants offer a special benefit to your oral health where it concerns your jawbone. Without dental implants, people who suffer tooth loss can begin to lose mass in their jaw. This takes place because the roots of missing teeth are not longer creating stimulation in the bone. When you have implants to substitute those roots, you can replicate that stimulation.

What Is Peri-Implantitis?

Patients who receive dental implants can look forward to great functional and cosmetic dental benefits. However, you do need to make sure that you keep up with your oral health, so that your implant stays in good condition. Peri-implantitis is a condition that forms when the tissue around an implant becomes infected. Paying attention to your dental health, and your gum health, can help you avoid this problem.
