Your Pella, IA dentist is happy to be able to offer patients various tooth replacement options depending on their exact situation. Some people are perfectly comfortable with dentures. Some people feel that the absence of only a few teeth means that a partial dental bridge will suffice. The main reason why dental implants should be considered for all teeth replacements is that there are no other solutions that look and feel like natural teeth in the same way. Dr. Jeffrey Allen would like to tell you more about dental implants.
The Look and Feel of Real Teeth
Dental implants are designed with two specific concerns: function and form. Biocompatible titanium rods form what is essentially a root replacement. The rod is implanted through gum tissue and into your jawbone for very strong anchoring. The tip protrudes from your gingival tissues to provide an attachment point for a porcelain crown. This high-quality dental crown can be color matched to fit seamlessly with the rest of your surrounding teeth. The crown is molded to have cusps just like a regular tooth. People will probably not even be able to tell you have a dental implant unless you tell them so.
One of the biggest advantages that many people are thrilled with is how easy dental implants are to maintain. If you know how to brush and floss your teeth (which we hope you do) than you’re all set. Other tooth replacements such as removable dental bridges and especially dentures require removal and daily cleaning with special solutions you have to purchase regularly. You’re left with a constant reminder that you’re missing teeth. On-the-other hand, with dental implants, you may soon forget that you ever even lost a tooth in the first place.
