Useful Pearl

Despite dental implants rapidly becoming “a commodity,” there are a lot of variables that can affect the biological and esthetic success of a particular clinical case. Proper diagnosis and clinical experience are the key elements for a favorable outcome.

Replacing Several Missing Teeth With Dental Implants

Traditionally, several missing teeth would have been replaced with a removable partial, full denture or full bridge.

Dentures have to be taken out and soaked at night. They can also look unnatural and rub painfully. Dentures and partials make it difficult or impossible to eat certain foods.

Dental implants can now be used to anchor partial and full dentures. This prevents the slipping, irritation, and pain associated with “floating” partials and dentures. It also prevents the tedious removal of dentures for overnight soaking and cleaning. Dental implants also eliminate the need for dental adhesives. This allows you to enjoy eating the foods you previously avoided. With dental implants, your partials or dentures are firmly anchored to the jawbone, causing them to feel much more like natural teeth.

Natural tooth roots and dental implants are fixed firmly in your jawbone. When you chew, these tooth roots and posts stimulate the jawbone and prevent it from shrinking. You may have seen a person who looked prematurely old because their jawbone had shrunk after wearing floating dentures. Dental implants help to preserve the jawbone and appearance.

Implant Overdentures

Regular dentures rest on the gums, which can sometimes result in problems if the dentures don’t stay securely in place while talking or eating. These problems can be avoided by using an implant-supported denture or dentures over implants system.

This treatment includes overdentures that attach to implant posts and can be designed to be bar-retained (a thin metal bar designed to follow the shape of the jaw) or ball-retained (ball-shaped attachments that fit into sockets). The dentures should be removed daily for cleaning, and you shouldn’t sleep with the dentures in place at night.

A natural tooth is anchored into the jawbone by its tooth root. Tooth roots attach firmly to the jawbone and keep your teeth stable when chewing foods.

Traditionally, if you were missing a tooth or if one needed to be extracted, the healthy teeth on either side of the missing tooth would be cut down and the whole thing replaced with a three-crown “bridge.”

Dental implants are the modern alternative. Instead of cutting down two perfectly healthy teeth, your periodontist inserts a dental post (dental implant) into the jawbone to replace your missing tooth root. This post becomes solidly fixed into your jaw as the bone heals (like a natural tooth root). Your general dentist then places a crown onto this artificial tooth root that feels and functions like your natural teeth.

Quite simply, dental implants are the most natural replacement for missing teeth.

Dental implants are changing the way people live! With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.

The Success Rate of Dental Implants

After their healing period, the success rate of dental implants is between 94% and 98%. If you are a non-smoker with good oral hygiene, the percentage is closer to 98%.

How Long Will Dental Implants Last?

Dental implants become fixed to the jawbone. Though the life span of a dental implant will vary with each patient, many have lasted for over 30 years. With good oral hygiene and regular cleanings, dental implants can last a lifetime. In contrast, the average life span of a traditional fixed bridge is between 10-15 years.

Bone Regeneration

A critical question in determining whether an implant can be placed is, “Is there enough bone to support the implant?” Fortunately, advanced bone regeneration techniques now make it possible to place many more implants than just 10 years ago.
