A Cosmetic Dentist Can Use Dental Implants to Replace Your Dentures

Many people are choosing to replace their dentures with dental implants from a cosmetic dentist. Although dentures are great for replacing teeth, upkeep and occasional slipping or adjusting can sometimes become tiring. Instead of dealing with these downsides, you can get dental implants to give you a more natural, secure set of teeth.

How can dental implants replace dentures?

Dental implants can be used to replace one tooth, multiple teeth or a whole set of teeth. While dentures accomplish the same goal, they require specialized care, such as soaking in a denture solution. Implants attach to your jaw and function like real teeth. Due to construction and durability, dental implants are taken care of just like natural teeth. Brushing twice a day, and flossing is vital to keep the gums and teeth clean and healthy.

You do not have to worry about your teeth ever slipping or irritating your gums again. With dental implants from a cosmetic dentist, you can have a full set of teeth that will improve how you eat, speak and smile.

How do dental implants work?

Almost all cosmetic dentists are familiar with installing dental implants. It is a common procedure for those with missing teeth. A metal spoke is inserted into the jaw bone and acts as your tooth’s root. Next, an abutment attaches to the implant. Lastly, your dentist places a crown on top of the abutment. This crown looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth.

These implants are durable and can withstand biting into your favorite foods. You will never have to take them out or perform any special maintenance. After switching from dentures to implants, you will feel like you have your natural teeth again.

Can dental implants help other things too?

One of the most talked about perks of dental implant is that they preserve the jawbone. By having the metal spoke directly placed in the jawbone, it will stimulate the bone just like a tooth root would. Because of this, you do not have to worry about your jawbone beginning to deteriorate. In turn, your jawline will not sag, and your face will not change shape.

With traditional dentures, these issues will begin happening as time goes on since the jawbone is not being stimulated. You will need to adjust your dentures since they will no longer align with your mouth.

How long does the process take?

During the first visit, your cosmetic dentist will prep the area and install the implants. The implants will attach to your jawbone but will need a few months to heal. During this time, the metal spokes and bone fuse together.

On the second visit, the dentist will attach the abutment. They will also take a mold of your mouth to create the crowns. You may need a few additional visits for the dentist to attach these crowns and make sure your implants are working well.
