Oral Health Dental Impants

Many Americans lose teeth due to tooth decay, periodontal disease, or accidents despite improvements in dental care. Until recently, people with missing teeth had only two options for treatment: bridges and dentures. Implant dentistry is now available.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants replace the roots of missing teeth. A dental implant is a strong foundation for a fixed (permanent) or removable replacement tooth that is made to match your natural teeth.

Dental implants have many advantages, including:

    • Enhanced appearance. A dental implant looks and feels like a natural tooth. Once implanted into the bone, it becomes permanent.
    • Speech improvement. A poorly fitting denture can cause you to mumble or slur your words as the teeth slip within your mouth. With dental implants, you can speak without having to worry about your teeth slipping.
    • More comfortable. Implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures because they become part of you.
    • Eating is more comfortable. Dentures that slide can be uncomfortable to wear. You can eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain when you have dental implants.
    • You will feel more confident. With dental implants, you can regain your smile and feel better about yourself.
    • Better oral health. Unlike a tooth-supported bridge, dental implants do not require reducing neighboring teeth. As nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, your own teeth remain intact, improving your long-term oral health. In addition, individual implants provide easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.
    • Longevity. Implants are very durable and last for many years. Many implants can last a lifetime with proper care.
    • Convenient. You can remove your removable dentures at any time. Unlike dentures, dental implants do not need messy adhesives to keep them in place. They also eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures.

In general, dental implants have a success rate of 98%, but the success rate depends on where in the jaw the implants are placed. Implants can last for a lifetime as long as they are properly cared for.

Anyone who is healthy enough to undergo a routine dental extraction or oral surgery can be considered for a dental implant. The patient should have healthy gums and enough bone to support the implant. Regular dental appointments and good oral hygiene are also essential. Individual evaluations are necessary for heavy smokers, people with uncontrolled chronic diseases – such as diabetes or heart disease – or patients who have undergone radiation therapy to the head/neck area.

The majority of dental insurance companies do not cover dental implants at this time. In some cases, tooth loss may be covered by your medical plan, depending on the plan and/or the cause of tooth loss. You should discuss with your dentist and insurance provider the details of your individual needs.
