Dental Implants: Everything You Need to Know Before Undergoing the Procedure

Maintaining oral hygiene is important for life as it not only improves your human to human interactions but also helps in having a good digestive system. For example, if you have a lost tooth because of an accident, you will not be able to give a perfect smile when you meet people because of the low self-esteem and confidence. Plus, losing teeth always hampers the chewing and biting of food; as a result, you will be subjected to improper digestion. 

Losing teeth might not be your choice, but getting one back is a matter of choice, and in dental science, it is called Dental Implants.  

Dental Implant is replacing a broken tooth with an artificial one, which is the closest version of the natural teeth. It will help you carry out your regular activities like chewing, biting, etc., as the real one and also improves the facial features. 

Why is replacing teeth important?

Replacement of teeth is important because the absence of a particular tooth in a mouth will increase the possibility of tooth shifting. It can also move out of its place and can even lead to tooth decay.

What is the difference between a single implant and an over-denture?

When we talk about dental implants, there are single implants and an overdenture, and depending on the condition, the use of a particular one is suggested. Consider if you have lost a single tooth, then the single implant is done, where an implant replaces the lost tooth. On the other hand, overdentures are used for patients who have lost all of their upper or lower teeth. These are the removable dentures that are attached to the dental implants or natural teeth. 

Dental Implant is a Permanent Solution

At Arch Dental, our team of professionally qualified dentists will examine the patient's oral health completely, and a suitable option is recommended to the patient. 

After the surgery is done, a process called osseointegration occurs where the jaw forms attachment with the implants, and they serve as a substitute to the tooth roots, which will help prevent bone loss in the future. 

How easy is it to clean around dental implants?

Dental implants can be cleaned easily by brushing at least twice a day, using a toothbrush of soft bristles, flossing, and brushing under and around a dental implant crown. Dental implants are a permanent solution for your lost teeth, which will help you restore your lost smile. Also, it gives your face a natural look compared to the dentures, and it is important to place implants over the bridge as it does not need any support from the neighboring teeth. 

At Arch Dental, we have experienced implant dentists who can carry out the process without any hassle.
