What Are Dental Implants?


Dental implants are a common oral health solution used at 3rd Avenue Complete Family Dental to replace missing or severely damaged teeth. If a tooth is lost or has suffered from damage and decay beyond repair, it may be replaced with a dental implant.
 
These implants are made from various materials and designed to replace any number of missing teeth. They include an artificial root, typically made of titanium, that is inserted into the jawbone to replace the natural tooth root.
 
An artificial replacement tooth is then attached to this implant. This allows the replacement tooth to look and function like a natural tooth. This enables patients to enjoy both the aesthetic benefits of a restored smile and the structural benefits such as the ability to eat and breathe without difficulty. Dental implants also play a crucial role in preventing future oral health issues and structural changes to surrounding teeth caused by tooth loss or misalignment.

What are the 3 types of dental implants?


The three types of dental implants, primarily distinguished by the number of teeth they replace, offer solutions for different patient needs at 3rd Avenue Complete Family Dental.

A single-tooth dental implant is most commonly placed when one tooth is missing or needs to be extracted and replaced. This process involves the insertion of a post into the jawbone, which, after healing, is topped with a custom-designed crown to look and feel like the surrounding natural teeth.

For multiple missing teeth, especially those adjacent to each other, an implant-supported bridge is utilized. This option involves placing crowns on either side of the gap, connected to dental implants, to hold an artificial tooth in place without addressing the missing teeth with individual implants.

Full-mouth dental implants or all-on-four dental implants replace all teeth in the jaw with a full arch of artificial teeth supported by implants. This solution provides a strong, durable, and natural-looking restoration of oral function and aesthetics.

There are further options within these primary types of dental implants including material and type of procedure. During consultations with the specialists at 3rd Avenue Complete Family Dental, patients are introduced to a range of options, including surgical dental implants and advanced techniques like computer-guided TEETH-IN-AN-HOUR™ procedures.

What are the benefits of dental implants?


Dental implants offer a wide array of benefits, from aesthetic to structural, significantly improving overall oral health and wellness. They can be customized to match an individual’s natural teeth, effectively restoring their smile and boosting self-confidence. Structurally, dental implants prevent bone loss by ensuring proper alignment and restoring jawbone stimulation, a unique advantage over other tooth replacement options. As a permanent solution, dental implants eliminate the concerns associated with dentures slipping, are easy to care for like natural teeth, and cannot be affected by cavities.

They also help maintain facial structure and prevent the oral health issues that can arise from missing teeth, such as misalignment and its associated problems. By replicating natural teeth in both appearance and support, dental implants offer both immediate corrective benefits and long-term preventative care against a range of potential health concerns.

How long does a dental implant last?


The lifespan of dental implants can vary significantly based on individual circumstances, but with proper care, they can last between 10 to 30 years, or even a lifetime, especially when maintained with regular oral hygiene practices.

To maximize the longevity of dental implants, patients need to adhere to excellent oral health routines, including regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups at 3rd Avenue Complete Family Dental.

Protecting implants from damage by avoiding hard materials and using protective gear during physical activities can also extend their life.

A healthy diet and lifestyle further contribute to the durability of dental implants, making them one of the longest-lasting oral health treatments available. Dental implants offer a permanent restorative solution to a wide range of oral health issues, significantly improving patients’ quality of life and overall wellness.
