Are Dental Implants Right for You?

Dental Implants

Losing your teeth is never a pleasant part of life, but dental implants can assist when this problem occurs. Here we will address how adult teeth may be lost, how to determine if you are a good candidate for affordable dental implants, and the types of implants that exist.

Ways Teeth Can Be Lost

Adult teeth can be lost due to accidents, the aging process, serious gum and tooth disease, or as a result of medications and treatments like chemotherapy. Once a tooth is lost, the natural lack of stimulation in the area of the missing tooth leads to bone loss in this area as well. The loss of teeth and the supporting bone can lead to serious issues with eating, speaking, and the proper alignment of the jaw and teeth.

How Dental Implants Can Help
Since bone needs stimulation in order to remain healthy, dental implants provide multiple benefits. First of all, they provide an aesthetically pleasing alternative to natural teeth. If you are feeling that your self-esteem is suffering because of visibly missing teeth, there is no need to feel ashamed or embarrassed with dental implants. Secondly, since the dental implants screw directly into the bone, this provides the stimulation needed to prevent further bone loss in the area of missing teeth. Finally, you also have a full set of functional teeth. This will allow you to be able to eat and chew foods properly, as well as prevent any pain associated with a misaligned jaw.

Dental Implant Options
Dental implants options include replacing a single tooth, replacing multiple teeth with a bridge, or providing full sets of removable implants for individuals who have lost all their lower teeth. The procedures for each implant option will differ slightly, but with each option you will have firmly secured implants that are virtually identical to your own teeth in both looks and function. An added bonus with dental implants is that, unlike real teeth, they are made of metal and cannot decay.

Are Dental Implants Right For Me?
Most people are good candidates for dental implants. If you have or have had serious health problems, you may wish to speak to a dental implant dentist who can provide more information on whether or not your health issues will be a problem. The following medical conditions may cause problems associated with dental implants, so be sure to mention them:

• Uncontrolled diabetes
• Cancer
• Uncontrolled gum disease
• Radiation therapy to the jaw
• Smoking and alcoholism

While dental implants are not real teeth, they still warrant proper dental care with daily brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups for maintenance purposes. When cared for properly, they can provide a lifetime of benefits.

If tooth loss is affecting your self-esteem or the function of your mouth and jaws, contact a dentist in Atlanta who can help you determine if you are a candidate and recommend the best dental implants for you. Your mouth will thank you for it!
