Why Choose Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a very effective way of replacing missing teeth, and can be used to hold implant crowns and bridges, and to secure dentures. They have several advantages over alternative methods of tooth replacement. Bridges and partial dentures usually require your natural teeth to be modified in some way, so healthy tooth structure is removed. Dental implants don’t require any such modifications, and they prevent bone loss in the jaw. This point is particularly important as other methods of tooth replacement do not have this ability.

When your tooth and its roots are extracted then the jawbone no longer receives the necessary stimulation to tell it to renew old bone cells, so your jawbone is gradually reabsorbed. A dental implant acts like a natural tooth root, supplying stimulation to the surrounding bone, so it continues to renew old bone cells.

What is a Dental Implant and what is the Procedure?

A dental implant consists of three parts. The first part is a titanium post that is inserted into your jawbone during a small surgical procedure at Blue House Dental. Titanium is used because it’s an osseophilic metal, which means it is “bone loving” and has the ability to integrate with bone very well. Once the post is inserted it usually needs to be left to integrate or fuse with the bone for several months, before the next part of the procedure. The next part is the abutment, and this is attached to the implant post. The abutment protrudes above the gum line, looking similar to a tiny stubby metal tooth. The abutment is used to hold the final part of the implant which is the replacement crown, bridge or denture.

Who Can Have Dental Implants?

Most people are suitable for dental implants, provided they are in reasonable general and dental health. We will need to carry out various diagnostic tests to determine your suitability, including a CT scan to assess the amount of healthy bone in your jaw. The CT scan is also used to plan the precise placement of your dental implants.

Dental implants may take a little longer to complete, but treatment could last for life, and the results are superior to alternative methods of tooth replacement.
