Why Should I Get Dental Implants
Have you been asking yourself, why should I get dental implants? There are two very good reasons that you should get them. They could make all the difference for you.
Why Should I Get Dental Implants | Replace a Missing Toot
I spoke with a patient the other day; it was our second meeting. She’s already decided to go forward with a dental implant to replace a missing tooth. She was inquiring about having a tooth in that space. A lot of times, during implant treatment planning, we can figure out some sort of temporary situation if the patient is requiring a tooth in the space that they want to replace with an implant. But for a majority of the time for posterior or back teeth we will usually leave that open to heal and we won’t necessarily replace that with a tooth.
A lot of times, patients are very interested, if they’re going to go through with dental implants, to replace a lot of their front teeth in their smile zone. It’s very aesthetic, and there are multiple options in terms of what we can do to temporarily place teeth there, whether it be some sort of temporary bridge fixated to other teeth or some sort of removal prosthetic appliance to get the result.
Why Should I Get Dental Implants | Make Dentures Comfortable
A lot of times, dental implants can be used not just to replace missing teeth but many times, patients will come to me with dentures, whether they’re loose or ill-fitting, and they’ll ask me, “Can I receive dental implants to make my dentures fit better?” I’ll say, definitely. A lot of times, especially nowadays, the standard of care for any sort of lower denture would be to receive two dental implants to help retain that denture. There are multiple different prosthetic devices that can be discussed to get you familiarized with what type of dentures or fitments can be made to your denture with dental implants. Without a doubt, implants can be used to make your dentures fit better, feel better and get a lot better sense of stability when going out into public, wanting to eat, wanting to socialize with people and just function normally through life.
