Restoration of Dental Implants

We can probably all agree that the most unpleasant phenomena to have occur in one’s mouth would be the loss of a tooth. There is nothing that harms a person’s self-conscious or personal image of themselves more when it comes to the mouth, teeth, and gums than a lost tooth. It looks incredibly out of place to most people to have a missing tooth. And for those who have to live with a missing tooth, this can be harsh for their sense of self-image, something that reduces self-confidence and body image tremendously. But what a lot of people don’t realize is that this phenomenon is absolutely preventable.

Firstly, the loss of a tooth can usually be prevented by participating in proper dental hygiene. Brushing one’s teeth twice a day, flossing once a day, and getting a dental checkup and cleaning twice a year is usually sufficient for preventing major dental complications that could lead to tooth loss.

But sometimes, genetics can stick one with a particularly troublesome set of teeth, and even good dental hygiene doesn’t end up being enough to prevent the onset of decay and damage that results in tooth loss. Furthermore, an individual could suffer an injury or some form of accident that could stick them with a lost tooth or a tooth that could be so damaged that it would need to be removed.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a miraculous technology for restoring one’s mouth and set of teeth to make it a full set of teeth. This is the groundbreaking technology for replacing a missing tooth or teeth in an individual’s mouth. The term, “Dental Implants” actually refers to the titanium metal which is used to create the “roots” of the new tooth or the new teeth. These titanium implants replace the missing root structure of the old tooth, effectively creating a basis on which porcelain restoration “teeth” can be added.

Dental implants are a fantastic technology, and they can act as a great solution for you or for one of your family members. Dental implants are highly versatile. These titanium wonders can:

  • Form the basis for replacing a missing tooth with a porcelain restoration piece.

  • Replace more than one missing teeth in the mouth, all without affecting the patient's other teeth, jaw, bite, or comfort level.

  • Support dental bridges, other dentures, and other dental work. Dental implants essentially recreate a tooth, from the bottom of the root all the way up into the end of the porcelain restoration.

  • Reintroduce the experiences of smiling, eating and drinking normally, etc.

As dental implant technology is now so advanced, the sky is the limit in the many benefits and possible positive outcomes of getting dental implants when they are needed.

Restoration of Dental Implants

As positive and advanced as the technology of dental implants is, one will still need to monitor their implants. And if one has a spouse or son or daughter or elderly mother or father with such an implant, they might want to keep an eye on theirs too.

Dental implants sometimes require maintenance. Sometimes, the porcelain cap on the implant (also known as the porcelain restoration of the tooth) can become chipped or cracked and will require maintenance. Sometimes, but very rarely, the implant itself will require adjustment as the body ages and as bone structure changes.

Thankfully, any family dental office that offers the installation and completion of dental implants and porcelain restorations will also offer dental implant maintenance and repair as an ancillary service for their patients.

Dental Implants for Your Family

Dental implants have many positive benefits for patients, and they can be very helpful for you or your family. If you or a family member, spouse, son, daughter, parent, or loved one suffers from a missing tooth for whatever reason, a dental implant is the best route to take.

Dental implants might be a somewhat intimidating process to confront, but the reality is that such a process is an investment in a new tooth… forever. Even if the porcelain restoration requires maintenance of some kind, the difference is that you or your family member now has a beautiful tooth, where once before there was just an empty gap.
