Dental implants are the best way to replace missing teeth.
Unlike dentures, you won’t have to worry about your dental appliance landing in your plate after you dig into a big juicy steak. As a result, implants, won’t cause problems when you talk or smile either.
Whether you have had a missing tooth for years, or have teeth that need to be replaced with dentures or fixed dental bridges, dental implants are the most comfortable and strongest procedures for missing teeth. Another reason to schedule an appointment with your dentist in Delray Beach.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is surgically placed in or on your jawbone. The posts or screws are made from titanium steel, and when healed, fuse to your bone. Known as osseointegration, this makes your new dental implant or implants strong. In fact, they are just as strong as your natural teeth.
After your surgery has healed and your implant posts are secure, Dr. George will place artificial teeth on top.
Am I a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?
Implants are used to replace all, several or one of your teeth. Good dental implant candidates have healthy gums. That means a good jawbone for adequate implant support. However, even if you do have bone loss, you may still qualify for implants because of bone and tissue grafting.
Proper Care for Dental Implants
After your restoration is placed, it is important that you practice good oral hygiene. Because just like your natural teeth, dental implants need care as well. Dr. George recommends that you brush twice with a low abrasive toothpaste and floss with dental tape. A water flosser is also recommended once or twice a day.
