Improved periodontal health
Since implant surfaces exposed in the mouth are very smooth, there is typically less plaque and tartar buildup therefore, implants can be less prone to gum problems than natural teeth.
No further bone loss
In people wearing dentures, bone loss can be a problem . It makes the face look older as the area around the mouth can sag. By placing an implant in your mouth, the implant stimulates the bone so that your body will continue to maintain the bone in the area and also maintain healthy adjacent teeth, much like. a natural tooth.
Maintain healthy adjacent teeth
By placing an implant, no support is required of the adjacent teeth, and hence your natural teeth do not need to be prepared or changed in any way.
Implants and implant supported teeth do not decay, so you don’t need to worry about changes or a loss of function to your implants, or cavities.
Improved comfort and speech
If denture wearing impacted a patient’s speech, that problem will disappear.
Implant-supported dentures look, feel and function like natural teeth, self-esteem can begin to return.
Before placing Dental Implant
After the first consultation of the patient to be considered a good candidate for implant, the clinician will obtain radiographs (x-rays) of specific areas to examine if the region will support an implant. The specific area/ areas for possible dental implant placement will also be examined to determine if there is enough room to place an implant fixture and eventually a restoration. The dentist will also review your medical history to make sure that you will not have post-surgical healing issues. After this, the dentist shall present the patient with a treatment plan and various options related.
Dental implant success is related to operator skill, quality and quantity of the bone available at the site, and the patient’s oral hygiene. The consensus is that implants carry a success rate of around 75%.
