Dental implants ‘provide alternative to dentures’

Thu

Dental implants 'provide alternative to dentures'Older people contemplating getting dentures could consider dental implants as an alternative.

With an increase in the number of people opting to get dental implants in recent years, the benefits of the procedure have been highlighted.

The process allows people to have the look and feel of natural teeth, without damaging the surrounding area.

Colgate Oral and Dental Health Resource Center revealed the two types of dental implant procedure most commonly used with patients.

Endosteal implants are fitted through the jawbone in two surgical procedures. A second operation is needed to connect a post to the original implant.

Subperiosteal implants consist of a metal frame fitted onto the jawbone.

Dental implants can replace a single tooth that has been knocked or fallen out or an entire set of teeth which has become damaged over time.

If the replacement teeth are treated with the appropriate care and regular professional check-ups, they are likely to last a lifetime.

Dental implants explained

Dental implants have been explained for those considering the treatment.

People undergoing dental implant procedures due to tooth loss may not fully understand what the device actually is and therefore the Baltic Times has handily offered an explanation.

Indeed, the publication noted that a dental implant is a titanium screw which is used to replace the tooth root and provides a foundation for the attachment of further aesthetic dental devices.

The fitting procedure works, whereby, a dental professional will first take X-rays to ensure there is adequate room and jaw strength to have the device fitted, before making a small incision in the gum and fixing the implant in place.

All in all, the procedure can be carried out relatively easily and offers individuals who have lost teeth a chance to regain their smile.

Meanwhile, Dentium USA – the maker of a range of dental implant devices – recently announced that its new SuperLine dental implant system is now available and is perfectly suited to help patients who have bone density issues.

The product is equipped with a true single platform and only one abutment connection is used for implants.
