Dental Implants for Teeth that Aren’t Right

If you are tired of dealing with teeth that don’t feel or fit right, call and schedule an appointment with Northwest Center for Dentistry.

The team from your Kalispell dentists’ office is equipped to help you come up with the best solution whether you are wearing dentures or dealing with natural teeth that shouldn’t be there anymore.

Why Dental Implants Work

Because dental implants fuse to the jawbone, yes they really do, the dental post acts like a natural tooth root giving you your youthful appearance back.

If you wear dentures or have missing teeth you’ll know that your jaw doesn’t look or feel the same way it used to.

Dental Implants Fix Jaw Resorption

Biting and chewing keep the jawbone exercised and preserved. However, if the tooth is removed and remains missing, the jaw bone will start to deteriorate.

In fact, in the first year after extraction you’ll lose 25 percent of the bone that was under the missing tooth. That loss will continue over time as well.

Dental implants avoid bone resorption because the post is the new tooth root. It really is that simple.

Dental Implants instead of Dentures

Because dental implants have changed over the years, more and more people are becoming good candidates.

Even people who have worn dentures for years and people who have never replaced missing teeth may be suitable for the best replacement for missing teeth. That replacement is dental implants.

Dentures and Missing Teeth

While dentures are a perfectly good replacement for missing teeth, anything is better than nothing.

You see, missing teeth cause problems for other teeth. If you have a missing tooth your remaining teeth will do their best to move into position.

If you wear dentures you will know, or will learn that you will have to replace your dentures over time.

Weight loss or gain and changes in your jawbone, which are inevitable, will cause ill-fitting dentures. Dr. Cameron Clark explains that while implants may seem expensive, they are much more cost effective in the long run.

Dental Bridges

Another replacement for missing teeth, dental bridges, literally bridges the gap between the missing teeth.

This is an excellent replacement and can last for years, but you will still deal with bone loss as there is nothing to exercise the tooth. Again, dental implants are a much better bet in the long run.

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.
