How to Know If a Root Implant Is Right For You
The process of getting dental tooth implants begins with one of our consultations. During this visit, the dentist can look at your gums and assess facial bone density. These exams confirm that your jawbone is healthy enough to support the implants. Once you are determined to be a good candidate for dental implants, we will put together a treatment plan detailing every aspect of the procedure that is right for you.
Dental implants are most commonly root implants. When an individual has lost a tooth or multiple teeth, this screw-like implant ensures that the replacement will last for many years to come. It’s placed directly into the jawbone, where it becomes part of the natural jaw structure.
When To Consider A Plate Form Implant
Each situation requires a separate evaluation to ensure that your teeth, gums, and mouth are healthy enough to begin the process. If we are not completely sure your dental implant will take the way it should, our treatment plan will change to accommodate the necessary process first. For example, you may be in line for a bone graft to improve bone density and correct any bone deficiencies in your jawline.
Sometimes jawbone damage is too extensive to be remedied by more traditional implants. Existing structures may simply be too narrow or too short for a traditional implant to graft with successfully. However, this is not an obstacle to your tooth restoration. A plate form implant can provide surface area for the tooth replacement, and create a natural looking and feeling structure for your new dental work.
How Can a Subperiosteal Implant Change My Quality of Life?
Life with missing teeth presents an individual with many difficulties. Some patients compensate for missing teeth so long that the effort of doing so may become second nature. No matter how much you have become accustomed to living with your condition, it still affects your quality of life. Chewing and talking can be made easier, more comfortable and more effective with our help.
Smiling can be a natural, aesthetically pleasing reaction that does not make you feel self-conscious or uncomfortable. Over time the implant fuses to your bone, creating a low-maintenance and natural appearance that feels just as natural as it looks. Patients report that the implants feel comfortable and normal after a brief initial adjustment period.
