Dental implants are something that a lot of people will look into if they have lost a tooth or teeth, and it affects their livelihood, including their smile. Bone resorption does naturally occur when your teeth are lost, so unless measures are taken to prevent it, it will happen there. It can melt away this process however, through the process of grafting techniques, and they work well in the hands of experienced people. Although bone can be restored by this, it’s preventable in a lot of cases. You can keep it in proper volume so that you can have a proper position of implants, which in turn will further prevent resorption. This is of course how you get more natural-looking teeth.
When it comes to implants, the key to it is to have a team of people putting these in that know exactly what they’re doing, putting them in the right position that allows for implant crowns that look natural, but also do function properly, and are of course maintainable, and are indistinguishable from your real teeth. In the wrong position, or without proper thought beforehand it can be a nightmare for the technician and dentist to make this.
The key to this is, of course, to have your dentist go over two questions with you. First, you want to make sure that implants are put in the correct position that allows for natural tooth function and aesthetics. The second thing is to ensure that you have enough bone in the proper place for this too. Implant placement, along with positioning is of course, dependent on the bone volume and density, which of course are critical to your success. These are extremely successful, to the point where over 95% of these, are actually successful. Even in areas where there is lower bone density, it’s oftentimes more successful than it would be otherwise.
The concept of this is something that has been tested and researched. Implant tooth replacement oftentimes compromises and separates the interconnecting units which of course allow for the crown components to be taken out if they ever need to be.
Once implants are placed though, they must allow for osteointegration in order to take place. This is probably the one step that some people get wrong since oftentimes, this is one of the main reasons for implant failure is, of course, putting the biting forces on them far too early. Once this is carefully controlled, it’s very possible to place your plants on there without any issues with stability. It’s also very possible to place them early as long as you’re properly monitoring them.
The idea of teeth in a day is very misleading, since the crowns are functional, but they’re temporary. They are more successful in your lower front jaw however, since the bone is much denser there, and the implants will be splinted to crowns over the implants in order to assure the stability initially. It is a little less predictable in the upper jaw, and for single tooth replacement, but in the right circumstances and hands, this is still very possible.
When it comes to implants, the success happens with whoever is doing these for you, and you should always make sure you choose someone who is good at their job, and who knows exactly what it is that you need to get done, and from there, let them take care of this, since they’re the ones who will be able to make sure that the tooth is put incorrectly, and the implant holds itself in an effective manner.
