If you’re missing one or more teeth, we know you’re dealing with a number of negative effects — from difficulty eating or speaking to feeling self-conscious about your gapped smile. There’s no way around it: your missing teeth have got to be replaced. And did you know that dental implants are the best replacement option available? There’s a reason they’re the number one choice for patients looking to get their sturdy, beautiful smile back again. Keep reading to learn more about dental implants in Wilton from Tyngtown Dental today.
All About Dental Implants in Wilton, ME
The team at Tyngtown Dental has been helping patients achieve their smile goals with dental implants for years. Let’s take a look at how they work, why they’re so often preferred and the ideal candidate for the treatment.
What Are Dental Implants?
Made of sturdy titanium, dental implants are tiny posts that are surgically implanted directly into the gum by a trusted oral surgeon. After a recovery period of two to six months, during which the jawbone fuses with the implant (a process known as osseointegration), the dental implants are completely stable and ready for the replacement teeth to be placed at Tyngtown Dental. The result? A sturdy replacement that looks, acts and feels just like your natural teeth.
Why Dental Implants Are The Best Replacement Option
Dental implants are unlike other replacement options, like non-implant supported dentures or fixed bridges, because they also replace the tooth’s root — not just the visible portion of the tooth. That’s the key to keeping your jawbone stimulated and healthy, preventing the deterioration that causes the mouth to change shape and lose even more teeth later on.
Who Makes a Good Candidate for Dental Implants
Before we can begin developing your unique treatment plan, we’ll need to confirm that you are a good candidate for dental implants. We’re looking for two things: first, we’ll confirm that you have enough supporting jawbone structure to start with. Sometimes too much bone loss has occurred due to missing teeth. Second, we’ll confirm that you’re in good oral and overall health. Some conditions, like gum disease or diabetes, can prevent the proper healing that dental implants require.
When lots of teeth have been lost, quality crowns placed on single implants can become prohibitively expensive very quickly. With implant-retained prosthetics, however, we can create a solid foundation with fewer implants — for results that are just as secure, at a cost (in dollars and time) that’s far less for you.
