Dental implants correct teeth that have become damaged, broken, or missing for various reasons, including accidents, poor oral hygiene, and underlying medical conditions.
The Advanced Dental Care of Towson team first reviews your medical history to make sure implants are right for you. Since dental implants require surgery, they also require enough bone tissue to secure into the mouth safely. The specialists may suggest a bone graft before your dental implant surgery.
The day of your implant procedure, the team thoroughly cleans your teeth and gums to remove any existing decay and potentially harmful bacteria. While the implant process itself may vary depending on your unique needs, your dentist inserts a screw into your gums that replaces your original root.
Your dentist then inserts a piece called an abutment into the screw, where a beautiful new crown that’s custom fit and colored to match your teeth sits on top. Each dental implant component requires a healing process to make sure the implant stabilizes correctly. As a result, the procedure can take up to several months.
Sometimes, crowns and bridges don’t correct the problems of damaged and missing teeth. You may be an excellent candidate for dental implants if you have:
Since dental implants consist of nontoxic metals, they aren’t prone to additional decay, making them an impeccable choice for oral restoration. Moreover, dental implants help improve your ability to chew, talk, and overall jaw support.
Dental implants require rigorous approvals by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). This means your implants have been tested to be safe and not harmful to your health.
The metal components of implants generally comprise titanium or zirconium oxide compounds. They can also contain gold, ceramic, and cobalt-based alloys. The crown itself can be made up of metal, porcelain, resin, and ceramic. The crown type best suited for you depends on your individual needs. Your dentist can help you select the best option.
