Have you lost teeth due to a recent accident? Do your dentures cause too much gum irritation?
Dental implants address lost teeth issues by offering patients who have lost a tooth a “replacement in kind”. A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth that is anchored into the jaw bone with a tiny titanium post that mimics the tooth root. The tiny implanted screw acts much like a natural tooth root, which helps generate natural bone growth to support the tooth structure.
The actual dental implant is a titanium post that is placed into the jaw bone to function as the artificial root for a replacement tooth. A dental implant can be used to replace one, several, or all of a person’s missing teeth. The restoration, either a dental crown, bridge, or denture is generally made from a tooth-like porcelain material to look and feel like natural teeth.
The dental implant has three parts:
- The titanium post that is placed into the jawbone
- An abutment that attaches to the dental implant and secures the replacement tooth
- And the replacement tooth, either a dental crown, bridge, splint or implant supported overdenture
Are Implants Right For You?
There is no such thing as being “too old” for a dental implant. Older patients benefit from dental implants as much as younger ones. Dental implants promote better retention of bone structure in the jaw and prevent additional tooth loss that can result from deterioration of the jaw bone. They can also improve periodontal health and the health of remaining natural teeth.
As long as there is a healthy bone structure in place to accept the dental implant and there are no contraindicating medical conditions, almost anyone can receive a dental implant. If you are experiencing bone loss as a result of missing teeth or gum disease, Dr. Eskow can perform a bone grafting procedure to build up the bone to accommodate the dental implant.
