Who’s the Ideal Patient for Dental Implants?
Typically, in order to receive dental implants, you must have disease-free gums, as well as jawbones that are healthy and strong enough to receive the rooting device (or devices). If denture alternatives have been on your mind, we can help you determine if you are an ideal candidate for implants. The dentists of Southridge Dental would be happy to discuss your options and examine your teeth, gums, and jaw structure to see if dental implants are in your best interest.
If you’re missing one or more teeth, dental implants in Lethbridge could be the right choice for you. Schedule a consultation today!
Why You Should Choose Dental Implants
Dental implants are small titanium screws that act as the new root to your tooth. These implants provide a solid foundation for replacement teeth. Your dentist inserts the implants directly into the jawbone to replace the tooth’s natural root. The devices encourage the bone to attach to the implant while your mouth heals, giving it a more natural look.
Once your gums have healed, your dentist places a support on top of the implant, which allows the replacement tooth to join with the implant. Your dentist then attaches a replacement tooth over the support. This allows your replacement tooth to feel as natural as possible.
Dental implants require a few months to properly heal before restoring your smile. However, it merits the time spent because it supports your jaw and restores your smile. You should choose dental implants over other forms of tooth replacement because they provide extra structure and support. While dental bridges and other options work very well, the artificial root that is the dental implant fuses to your jaw bone and supports your replacement tooth in a way other methods cannot.
