Stop the Torture with Dental Implants

If you have been tortured with missing teeth for years, it’s time to make a call. That call for dental implants could change your life.

Your favorite dentist in Kalispell is a dental implant placement specialist and has the knowledge and tools to replace your missing teeth with the remarkable All on 4 Dental Implant System.

All on 4 Dental Implant System

For people with missing teeth the torture is real. Those that don’t have a full set of teeth compensate when they eat moving food from side to side just to avoid pain. If you are unable to chew your food because of missing teeth, you know the agony.

Thankfully, dental implants in Kalispell can change all of that. In addition, the All on 4 Dental Implant System doesn’t usually require bone graft surgery.

If you have missing teeth or dentures, you know that the jawbone shrinks because the roots of the teeth aren’t giving it any exercise. Even a single missing tooth causes the jaw to shrink.

When that happens your other teeth will change their position and the way they sit. Your face will change when you are missing teeth as well because again there is no exercise. Your chin will sag and your jowls will hang making you look older than you are.

Missing Teeth Solutions

While there are a few types of dental implants for missing teeth not all are good for people with dentures or for those who have been missing teeth for years.

For those individuals, Dr. Cameron Clark recommends the All on 4 Dental Implant System. Not only will you have teeth in a day, but you’ll also have your permanent dental implants quicker than you normally would if you had bone grafting surgery.

Missing Teeth a Memory

Because the All on 4 Dental Implant System is surgically implanted in a day, you will walk out of the dental implant surgery with temporary artificial teeth.

After your implants have healed, there are four in each arch; you will be rewarded with beautiful permanent teeth that can last for the rest of your life.

Of course, you’ll have to practice good oral hygiene, your teeth are false, but your gums aren’t, and follow your Kalispell implant dentist’s advice when it comes to healthy eating habits for dental implants.

Dental Implants for a Happy Life

Thanks to dental implants and All on 4s missing teeth don’t have to be a life sentence. Your implant dentist in Kalispell has the training, knowledge and experience to recommend the best tooth replacement for your particular needs.

What are Dental Implants?

Keep up to date and follow the Kalispell Dentistry Blog and you’ll know, or will have remembered that dental implants are made from titanium or human grade materials for those with metal allergies. These posts or screws are cylindrically shaped and surgically implanted into the bone.

Taking between an hour to two hours per dental implant post, single and multiple dental implants require three to six months of healing before the artificial teeth are placed on the posts.

In some patients, additional healing may be required. Some instances would be bone graft surgery or any other type of oral surgery needed for dental implant placement.

Types of Dental Implants

Dr. Cameron Clark explains that there are different types of dental implants for different types of patients.

For example, people who wear dentures; are missing most of their teeth, or considering extraction would probably choose All on 4s.

All on 4s are perfect for people who are missing more than one tooth. Denture wearers love the permanent option from this remarkable tooth replacement system.

Because All on 4s require four posts per arch instead of one screw per implant you can walk in with no teeth and walk out with a beautiful temporary set of implants.

As previously mentioned healing takes between 3 to 12 months depending on your situation and how quickly you heal. This means you can have your new permanent All on 4s in as little as twelve weeks.

With that being said, it’s important to note that those who smoke should quit. Smoking slows the healing process.

Missing Teeth Bridges and Dentures

While dentures and bridges bring function back, you will lose facial structure. This is because the bone shrinks after the tooth comes out. Dental implants fuse to the bone bringing back function.

With single, multiple and All on 4 dental implants the bone fuses to the implant making your artificial teeth just as strong as your natural teeth.

If you would like to learn more about dental implants or All on 4s, call or send a direct message and schedule an appointment with Great Northern Dental Center today. You’ll love your new smile.

Dental Implants Instead of Bridges

If you have just lost a tooth or are about to have one extracted, skip the dental bridge and opt for a dental implant instead.

Your dentist in Kalispell has the experience to place dental implants that are just as strong as the tooth that you lost. In fact, your new replacement tooth is probably stronger.

Dental Bridges

Used to bridge the gap, a dental bridge requires some removal of the abutment or adjacent teeth. This means that the procedure is permanent.

There are three types of dental bridges, traditional fixed bridges, Maryland bonded bridges and cantilever dental bridges. All three of these dental bridges do the job, but are not as sturdy as dental implants.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are natural looking appliances that replace one or more lost teeth. Made from acrylic or metal and acrylic, they bring your mouth back to function, however, just like dental bridges, there will be bone loss.

Tooth roots exercise the bone making it strong. Once that tooth is lost it dissolves into the body. That is why people with dentures don’t have the jaw support that they once did.

Dental bridges and partial dentures are excellent replacements for missing teeth. However, you will suffer jaw bone loss as your new dental bridge will not fuse to the bone like a dental implant will. This process is called osseintegration.

Osseointegration is a natural phenomenon that happens when your dentist surgically places a post or screw in or on your jawbone.

Bone fusing takes about 9 to 12 months; however, in some cases patients have healed in as little as six months or in as many as 18 months.

Dental Implants for Missing Teeth

Dental implants act like natural teeth and are superior tooth replacements. Although dental implants will cost you more upfront, they are well worth it in the long run as dental bridges and partial dentures will need to be replaced over the years.

Dental implants on the other hand could last the rest of your life as long as you practice good oral hygiene including regular dental checkups with Northwest Center for Dentistry.

What are Dental Implants?

Implant specialist Dr. Cameron Clark explains that dental implants are posts or screws made from titanium. However, in some cases, human grade dental plastic is used if the patient has a metal allergy.

After healing your dentist in Kalispell places artificial teeth on the top of the posts for a brand new smile. These new teeth shine and reflect light just like natural teeth do.

Dental Implants Better than Bad Teeth

Dental implants are the best solution whether you have been missing teeth for years or have recently lost a tooth. Regardless of your toothless situation, the dental implant team from Northwest Center for Dentistry is ready to help you smile again.

Dental Implants for a Healthy Smile

For dental implants to work, your gums need to be healthy, and your bone needs to be all there. In other words you cannot suffer from bone loss due to periodontal disease or other issues.

Kalispell Dentistry will make sure that you are healthy enough for dental implants before proceeding with any type of oral surgery.

Your Kalispell dentist Dr. Cameron Clark explains that when you lose a tooth your jaw immediately begins to shrink. This process eventually ages a person because the jaw starts to shrink.

Called resorption, it causes problems for other teeth as well. In other words, when you lose a tooth the other teeth try and make an adjustment by moving into the space that housed the lost tooth.

While dentures and bridges solve the problem of a missing tooth bringing function back, they do not offer bone support like dental implants do. Because of a process known as osseointegration, the posts fuse to the bone acting like real tooth roots.

Dental Implants are Amazing

Dental implants are screws or posts surgically implanted on or in your bone. Used to replace one or more missing teeth people with otherwise healthy teeth and gums are excellent candidates.

Made from titanium or human grade dental plastic if allergies are an issue, implant posts are surgically placed.

After surgery you may have to wait up to a year or more for healing, especially if other procedures, such as bone grafting, were required.

While some patients may be able to have their artificial teeth placed over the tops of the posts in just six months, the average healing time is between 12 to 18 months.

Once healing is completed your dental implant dentist in Kalispell places your new beautiful replacement teeth on top of the posts.

Just Like Natural Teeth

Your new dental implants look and feel just like natural teeth and shine just as bright as well. Best of all you can eat the foods you used to without embarrassing yourself with sloppy fitting dentures.

Dental implants also eliminate messy cleaning pastes and denture adhesives. You won’t believe how much better you feel when you don’t have to remove your teeth at night to give them a clean.

While your new teeth won’t decay, your gums can become diseased. It is vital that you brush and floss and see your Kalispell dentist for follow up visits.
