Dental Implants

Dental implants are posts surgically placed into the upper or lower jawbone and are an effective way to replace missing natural teeth. A dental implant is the next best thing to the real thing.

Benefits of Dental Implants:

  • Implants offer firm support and won’t slip or shift in your mouth
  • Implants feel more natural than removable partial or complete dentures
  • Implants help to preserve the bone after teeth are lost or removed
  • Implants are a good value. They may seem like a more expensive option at first, but if you care for them properly they can last a lifetime.

Types of Dental Implants

Single Tooth Implant

  • A single tooth implant replaces the missing tooth’s roots.
  • It is a stand-alone unit and does not involve treating the teeth next to it.

Implant-Supported Bridge

  • An implant-supported bridge replaces the lost natural teeth and some of the roots when more than one tooth is missing
  • Unlike traditional bridges, an implant-supported bridge does not need support from the teeth next to it.

Implant-Supported Denture

  • An implant-supported denture can be a good option if you are missing all of your teeth.
  • An implant-supported denture tends to be a comfortable and stable solution since the bone in your jaw naturally grows around the implants.

Caring for your Denture

Like natural teeth, you must take good care of your dentures. 

  • Clean your denture everyday. Take it out of your mouth and rise off. It is best to use a special brush when cleaning your dentures, but you can also use a toothbrush with soft bristles. To clean, wet your denture brush and put denture cleaner on it. You may also use a little bit of liquid dish soap.
  • Do not use toothpaste to clean dentures. Some toothpastes have abrasive particles that can damage your denture.
  • Keep your denture in water or in a specially made denture soaking solution when you are not wearing it. Remember to rinse your denture well after using denture cleanser before you put it back into your mouth.
  • Use a denture cleanser that has the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance.

Keep your denture away from children and pets to prevent it from being damaged.
