Your smile is the first impression that others have of you, so it makes sense that you would want it to be bright, white, and healthy. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, more than 90 % of all American adults believe that a smile is an important asset for social situations. Perhaps that is why so many patients are electing cosmetic dental procedures to improve their smiles and boost self-confidence.
Implant Dentistry deals with dental implants or artificial teeth. An implant is typically made from a titanium or alloy rod implanted into healthy gums or pulp through the use of a surgical procedure to fuse the rod into the soft tissue. Implant Dentistry has gained popularity over the past few years as more people have been opting for a dental implant to replace one or more missing teeth. The process is rather complicated but not overly strenuous on the body and is completely safe when done by a professional.
Dental implants are used for several reasons but the most common reason for their use is a complete or partial denture that is attached to the front of the mouth. This type of dentures, also known as ‘front teeth’ can only be replaced using an implant since they do not attach to the bone. In the past, people who had lost all of their teeth could not chew properly and were at severe risk of developing infection or gum disease. Today, dentists have developed several dental implants for different uses including prosthetic and osseointegrated dentures. With osseointegrated implants, the dentist sews synthetic material into the bone so that it will fuse into the supporting bone. This process of Osseointegration is the same as that of traditional implant dentistry and is also considered to be a successful treatment.
