Replace Missing Teeth with Dental Implants

Dental Implants

No one wants to go through life with a toothless grin or endure the hassles that come with dentures and bridges. Dental implants are the preferred option for lost or missing teeth. Unlike dentures or bridges, affordable dental implants can replace lost and missing teeth in a natural manner, accurately mimicking the form and function of real teeth. In fact, satisfaction and lifelong success with dental implants is almost 100 percent—more than that of any other major surgery. If you are seeking solutions to lost or missing teeth, consider dental implants. Your dentist can help you determine if you are a candidate for the procedure and recommend the best dental implants to suit your needs and lifestyle.

Most people with lost or missing teeth are candidates for dental implants. You should be in good health and/or any diseases or conditions you have must be under control. Tobacco users and those suffering from alcoholism may also require additional support before becoming eligible for dental implants. Your dentist in Annapolis may work closely with your primary care physician to help you determine and achieve candidacy.

The state of your mouth and jawbone also influence whether you are a candidate for dental implants. X-rays and teeth molds may be necessary to properly assess eligibility. Bone loss often occurs with tooth loss. This can impact your candidacy because without a stable jawbone, there is no stable support system for the implant. Like most things, if you don’t use it, you lose it. Your teeth and bones are the same way. Individuals who have suffered extensive tooth loss will find that the bone surrounding the missing tooth or teeth begins to become soft without stimulation. For this reason, replacements for lost teeth should be pursued shortly after loss occurs. Just one year without stimulation can cause a 25 percent loss of bone.

There are surgical techniques available to regenerate bone if you have bone loss. One of the best features of dental implants is their ability to preserve the jawbone. Unlike dentures and bridges, implants deliver the same stimulation as natural teeth.

Your dentist in Annapolis can help you assess your oral and total health to determine if you are a candidate for affordable dental implants. They will make recommendations to ensure that you get the best dental implants that not only address your problems, but also offer the most optimal outcomes. If it is determined that implants are the best option for you, a specialized dental implant dentist or an oral surgeon may be recommended to you.

You may want to seek several expert opinions before coming to a final decision. While dental implants are the preferred choice, it is a serious surgery and your overall health is a priority.
