Thus, dental implants became a necessity if you have lost your tooth at an early age. So, here Dr. Monika Dagdiya Chandak Consultant Prosthodontist and Implantologist practicing at Synapse Dental Care Nagpur has to say about dental implants.
WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Dental implants are replacement for your missing teeth.When teeth are extracted due to infections or if they are congenitally missing then dental implants are placed in the jaw.These implants are the foundation for the missing teeth.Dental implants are common nowadays due to social media and health awareness.
PREREQUISITE FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS?
For dental implants to be placed it is necessary to have enough bone to support the dental implant. But if there is deficiency of bone many procedures are present to correct it.
For accurate implant placement patient bone evaluation is carried out and then it is placed according to bone present.
ADVANTAGES OF DENTAL IMPLANTS over OTHER TREATMENT OPTIONS:
- Greater comfort for patients while chewing and talking.
- They are similar to natural teeth.
Other options are :
Bridges (Fixed partial denture)but in that we have to take support from adjacent healthy teeth,Whereas, in implants we take support from bone.
Another option is Removable partial denture, in that patients have to remove the denture daily to clean. But in implants it is fixed.
Dental Implants are beneficial in improving your speech, appearance and comfort! Dental implants function like your own teeth and help you chew food better. Dental implants, unlike tooth-supported bridges, do not require the removal of other teeth. Because neighboring teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your natural teeth are preserved, resulting in better long-term oral health. Individual implants also make it easier to clean between teeth, which improves dental hygiene.Implants are extremely long-lasting and will last for many years. Many implants can last a lifetime if properly cared for.
