Dental Implants Enhance Your Smile

There are many individuals that currently live with damaged teeth. As a result, self-confidence levels are severely weakened due to chipped, cracked, or missing teeth. It can also lead to being reclusive or refusing to smile due to the embarrassment that is associated with unsightly teeth. Having a new smile that is available to you can boost your confidence levels. Advancements in dentistry has provided dental patients to have their teeth corrected through the use of dental implants. An implant consists of a titanium rod that is installed into the jawbone to provide support for dental prosthetics. The implant is threaded so that it can be screwed into the jawbone, which allows for a secure fit.

If you are missing any teeth, a cosmetic dentist will be able to create new teeth that are held in place through the use of dental implants. Those with dentures may be able to user a mini implant to permanently bond dentures with out the use of adhesives. In order to begin the procedure, the dentist will determine where the dental implants will be placed. A pilot hole is then drilled for each dental implant and the implant is screwed into position. Once the implant is in place, the dentist may protect the area and the implant with a temporary cover to allow the jawbone and the implant to properly fuse together. After the dental implant has been accepted by the jawbone, the dentist will then install permanent caps or crowns onto the implant providing the patient with a great new smile.

Before dental implants became available, dental patients who suffered from missing or broken teeth had to rely on traditional denture adhesive. The dentures are held in place with the use of an inadequate adhesive that made denture wearers constantly struggle with pain and discomfort. There are also common problems with eating and speaking that are due to the denture dislodging in the mouth. Dental implants have replaced the need to use adhesive, as the dentures can be retrofitted and used in conjunction with the implants

Instead of living with the embarrassment of a broken or damaged smile, you should speak with your cosmetic dentist about your options. You may find that dental implants are the affordable alternative that you have been waiting for to enhance your smile.

When considering Dental Implants for you or a loved one, take the time to find a professional that not only has the credentials and experience, but the passion to perform exceptional work.
