What are dental implants?
Dental implants are extremely durable titanium posts that Bruno Sharp, CD, MS, DDS, implants into your jawbone, where they act as artificial tooth roots. Dental implants offer you the opportunity to restore a smile damaged by:
- Missing teeth
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Severe tooth decay
- Bad tooth wear
Dental implant restoration is also an excellent potential option if you’ve unsuccessfully attempted to replace your teeth using different methods in the past.
How do dental implants work?
Dental implants work by fusing with your natural bone. In combination with their titanium composition, dental implants become an exceptionally strong, stable base for artificial teeth options like dentures, crowns, and bridges.
Once your mouth heals and your implants fuse, Dr. Sharp attaches connector posts called abutments to the implants. To these mechanisms, he can attach your custom artificial teeth. They can be permanent (fixed) or removable.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants offer you a myriad of benefits, including their superior comfort and durability and the improvement of your oral health.
Because they fit inside your mouth so snugly and securely, dental implant restorations are far more comfortable than traditional dentures. On top of that, they make eating and talking easier.
Because dental implants fuse directly with your bone, dental implant restorations are exceptionally durable. No other artificial teeth replacements come close. If you brush, floss, and regularly visit Dr. Sharp for checkups, your restorations can last several years to a lifetime.
Improved oral health
Finally, dental implants prevent jawbone loss, prevent tooth shifting, and actively encourage bone growth. An added bonus, because dental implant restorations don’t need dental cement to stay in place, you can floss between them.
Who is a candidate for dental implants?
To be a candidate for dental implants, you need to meet a few criteria. First, your jawbone must be strong and healthy enough to hold your implants in place and fuse with them. You likewise need healthy gums.
If your jawbone and/or gums aren’t healthy enough for dental implant restoration, Dr. Sharp may suggest deep periodontal cleanings to treat them. You may also be excluded from dental implant restoration if you:
- Live with an uncontrolled chronic condition, like diabetes
- Are undergoing radiation for cancer on your neck or head area
- Are a heavy smoker
- Cannot commit to establishing and maintaining good oral hygiene habits
Dental implants let you regain not only the function and beauty of your smile, but your confidence. If you’re to take your smile back, schedule a consultation with the team at Sharp Dentistry & Associates online or over the phone today.
