What are Dental Implants

And How Do They Work?

Implants are one of the most common procedures in the US. According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. Dental implants are designed to replace missing tooth roots and are small titanium posts. They are surgically placed in the jawbone and take about three to six months to fuse with the tissue. This is called osseointegration. After osseointegration is completed, implants can support restorations like bridges, crowns, dentures and full arches with tremendous stability. 

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Proven Longevity

Dental Implants have been known to last 40 years and longer when proper care is applied. 

However, restorations attached to the implant will need to be replaced over that time. implants themselves can last for the rest of your life.

Jawbone Retention

Missing teeth can result in the shrinking and deteriorating of the jawbone. This can lead to further oral health issues and can even make you appear to be older than you are by preserving your facial features. Implants are the only treatment that stimulates the jawbone after tooth loss. This will maintain stability and strength.

Great Stability

Traditionally used restorations such as dentures, bridges and flippers can slip out of place when speaking or eating and can be embarrassing. Dental Implants supported restorations stay firmly in place since they fuse with the jawbone.

Popularity of Dental Implants are Increasing Rapidly

The global dental implant market is expected to reach $13 billion by 2023

Health and Lifestyle Conditions

Have Affects On Your Candidacy

Your health and lifestyle choices play a significant role in determining your eligibility for dental implants. If you are considering this treatment, the first step is to request a consultation with Dr. Northcutt at Robertsdale Dental Care.

During this consultation, you and Dr. Northcutt will discuss your medical history, concerns, and treatment goals. It’s important to be open about any health issues you may have, as they can impact the success of dental implants. For instance, if you have undergone radiation therapy for head or neck cancer, there may be a slightly higher risk of implant failure.

However, even if you are not currently a prime candidate for implants, rest assured that there are dental treatments available that can help you qualify for them. At Robertsdale Dental Care, we consider various factors to determine your suitability for dental implants.

Poor Jaw Density

If you have experienced tooth loss for an extended period, the bone in your jaw can deteriorate, potentially hindering the support of implants. In such cases, Robertsdale Dental Care offers bone grafting procedures to restore lost tissue and reinforce your jawbone.

Periodontal Disease

Healthy gums are crucial for the success of both your natural teeth and dental implants. If you are experiencing gum disease, our clinic offers effective periodontal treatments to establish a solid and healthy foundation for your implant. Visit Dr. Jason Northcutt today for expert care and personalized solutions to improve your oral health.

Smoking

Smoking increases the risk of implant failure. It inhibits the body from healing properly. If you are considering implants, quitting smoking for several months is highly recommended and try to quit for good. 

Uncontrolled Diabetes

Diabetes and other autoimmune diseases can heighten the risks of surgery and impede the healing process. It is important to inform your dentist about these health conditions. However, managing your diabetes effectively can significantly improve your chances of successful outcomes, matching those of individuals without the disease.
