Why Dr. Worrell Would Recommend a Dental Implant

Dental implants are designed to provide a strong foundation for replacement teeth. These new teeth look, feel, and perform just like a regular tooth. Dental implants are changing the way our patients live. A person who has lost a tooth is able to regain the ability to eat with that tooth again. A dental implant appears completely natural and keeps your facial contours intact by preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing. An implant is one of the healthiest ways to replace a missing tooth.

How Implants Compare to Traditional Dentures

Dentures have been a solution for missing teeth for centuries, but they have a few notable flaws. When we use our own teeth to chew, it stimulates the jaw bone and keeps it strong. Dentures aren’t very effective at providing this stimulation, resulting in oral health problems like bone loss in the jaws. This, in turn, can lead to the dentures not fitting very well, so they can slip and fall out easily and leave the gums feeling sore.

Implants, on the other hand, are artificial teeth that are placed into the jawbone and function the same way as the roots of teeth. Implants greatly reduce the risk of bone loss and they won’t slip and slide while you’re trying to chew your food or have an engaging conversation. Taking care of implants is the same as taking care of natural teeth. True, the price tag can be higher with implants than dentures, but that’s pretty much the only advantage removable dentures have as replacement teeth. Implants can replace individual teeth or they can be used as anchors, such as with All-on-4 dental implants.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. Anyone missing teeth understands that they sacrifice confidence and the ability to smile and laugh without covering their mouths in shame. The most obvious of benefits is the ability for greater enjoyment of life. But the benefits go far beyond this:

  • Improved appearance and overall self-esteem: Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth because they permanently fuse with the bone. They give you back your smile and help you feel confident in yourself.
  • Improved speech: With dentures, the teeth can slip and slide in the mouth, causing slurring or mumbling. With dental implants, you speak without the worry that teeth might slip.
  • Improved comfort and convenience: Because they become part of you, there is no more embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures or the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.
  • Easier eating: Sliding dentures can make chewing especially difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods without pain. Teeth are supported by stable and robust implant posts that have fused with your jawbone. 
  • Improved oral health: Dental implants don’t require attachment to other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth don’t support the implant, your original teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health.
  • Durability: Implants are long-lasting and durable. With proper care, they will last many years. Some implants can last a lifetime.
  • Stopping bone loss: A natural tooth root provides continual stimulation to the bone surrounding it through force whenever you bite down or chew with that tooth. If the tooth is absent, this stimulation is lost, and the bone recedes. By replacing your tooth root with a dental implant post, stimulation is restored to your jawbone, halting further bone loss.
  • Healthy remaining natural teeth: Restoring missing teeth with dental implants protects your remaining teeth by preventing them from moving out of position and maintaining your natural bite. 

Caring for a Dental Implant

To ensure that your implant lasts as long as it should, you should keep up with good daily oral hygiene habits. An implant can’t get a cavity like a normal tooth, but because it lacks the periodontal ligament between the gum and implant, the surrounding tissue can be vulnerable to infection. We encourage our dental implant patients to be diligent with brushing and flossing so that they can avoid problems like peri-implantitis.

The Anatomy of a Dental Implant

There are three parts that make up a dental implant.

  • The implant: a titanium screw, which is surgically placed into the patient’s jaw bone where the original tooth used to be
  • The abutment: a small piece that ensures a snug fit
  • Crown: the top part of the tooth, which is attached to the implant and matches your natural teeth

Millions of people get dental implants to fill the gaps in their smiles every year. If you’d like to learn more about this excellent modern solution to an age-old dental problem and find out if dental implant surgery could be part of your treatment plan, we’re happy to answer your questions!

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the state of art technique to replace missing teeth. Implants are screw shaped titanium post surgically inserted into the jawbone and integrate with the surrounding bone tissue. This period of integration is approximately 2-6 months during which a temporary restoration or dentures can be worn.

Mini Impants

Mini implants use the same method to integrate or become part of the bone. The only difference is the size. Mini-implants function as an artificial tooth root and can support a cosmetic crown or bridge, or can be used to secure cosmetic dentures to improve their retention.

Bone & Gum Grafting

Bone and gum grafts (augmentation) is a procedure used to repair or replace tissues lost due to disease, trauma or congenital defects to increase the amount of available bone and/or gum preserving further loss of your own tissue and to facilitate implant placement.
