Dental implants explained
Dental implants are restorations that are used to replace missing teeth. They can replace a single tooth or several teeth, depending on how they are used. A dental implant can be put into the bone of the jaw and then restored with a crown to replace a single tooth. Otherwise, patients may use implants to anchor the ends of a dental bridge or to stabilize a full denture. This titanium post has several advantages over alternative tooth replacement solutions. Implants are:
- Easily accessible
- Made of biocompatible materials
- Known for lasting a lifetime
- Easy to care for
- Best for maintaining bone structure
Dr. Christopher Lim encourages patients to move forward with dental implants whenever possible because of these benefits. Patients may invest more upfront, but will find that these restorations are most appropriate in many situations. Additionally, the cost over time is much lower than bridges and dentures, which require replacement and adjustment on a regular basis.
Am I a candidate for dental implants?
Patients who are interested in dental implants will have to undergo a series of x-rays to ensure they are proper candidates for these restorations. We will discuss possible alternatives if they fail to meet the requirements.
