Dental Implants Are a Permanent Solution for Damaged Teeth
There are many benefits to having dental implants over dentures or bridges. Many people suffer from diseases or decay that cause the teeth to crack prematurely or fall out. A damaged smile can affect self-confidence and overall dental health. Complete Family Dentistry serves the Madison, WI. area with innovative dental services, including restorative dentistry using partial or full implants. If you're looking for a permanent solution for your damaged teeth, implant procedures can give you the smile you want.
The Basics of Implants
An implant replaces the root of your tooth with a titanium screw. Teeth implant models are created to fit over the screws and replace your natural teeth. The traditional method of implants takes up to 6 months to complete, with healing time needed in between installing the titanium roots and adding the teeth. Once the dentist puts the final tooth on, there is a small window where you may feel discomfort or have an adjustment to using the new teeth.
Implants will not only improve the look of your smile but also prevent your jawbone from sinking. This happens when you're missing more than one root and need multiple teeth replaced. Unlike dentures and bridges, implants actually strengthen the jaw area because of the permanent screws.
Candidacy for Dental Implants
Your dentist can perform an oral evaluation to determine if you're eligible for implants. In most cases, the amount of available bone determines whether or not you can get implants. Since implants fuse to the existing bone, it's important that you have strong bone in the areas where you need the implants.
