If you are unfamiliar with Dental Implants or would like to learn more, keep reading!

Dental Implants were invented in 1952 by a Swedish orthopedic surgeon named Per-Ingvar Brånemark. They can be thought of as artificial tooth roots similar to the shape of a screw. The implants are placed in your jawbone and bond with your natural bone over the course of a few months, becoming a sturdy base for supporting crowns. A connector is then placed on top of the implant to hold your crown in place. The implant stands on its own without affecting other natural teeth.

Benefits

There are several benefits of getting dental implants. They look, feel, and function like normal teeth, so you won’t have any difficulties eating or cleaning them. They keep your jaw bone healthy by forming a biological bond with your jaw, creating a permanent foundation just as strong as the root of a natural tooth. Dental Implants can also prevent jaw bone shrinkage, which can lead to wrinkled lips and a sunken mouth, so you are able to maintain a youthful appearance. If you take good care of them, they can last for decades! 

A good candidate for a Dental Implant is in good health, both orally and generally. The best candidates have healthy gum tissues free of periodontal disease and adequate gums to support the implant. You can receive Dental Implants for a missing tooth/teeth, or you can get implants put under dentures. To ensure the greatest success with your implants, there are a few steps to follow:

Good Oral Hygiene

Always practice good oral hygiene, whether you have received Dental Implants or not. You should brush twice a day and floss once daily. Those hard-to-reach areas around your implant can be cleaned with interdental brushes, which are brushes that slide between the teeth. 

No Smoking

Avoid smoking, as it can weaken the bone structure and cause your implant to fail. Smokers are also at a greater risk of infection following surgery and may heal slower than those who do not smoke. 

Visit Your Dentist

Routine dentist visits should be a part of your yearly schedule, but cleanings and exams every six months can help make sure that your implant is in good condition.
