What are dental implants?
Dental implants are the ideal teeth replacement options, suitable for patients missing one, several, or all their teeth. To be specific, the dental implant doesn’t replace the tooth crown, like all other replacement options, but rather the missing tooth’s root structure. The dental implant is a titanium post screwed into the jawbone underneath the empty socket of the missing tooth. Over time, the jawbone heals around the implant via a process known as osseointegration.
Once the jawbone has healed sufficiently, it firmly lodges the implant in place, preventing it from moving. Once the implant is a part of your dental anatomy in 3 to 6 months, the dentist attaches a crown, bridge, or denture to the implant. Crowns are suitable for patients missing one tooth, bridges are suitable for patients missing multiple teeth in a single series, and dentures are suitable for edentulous patients, i.e., those missing all teeth from the upper or lower arch.
Are dental implants worth it and last forever?
Dental implants are completely worth it. Once the implant is a firmly-rooted part of your dental anatomy, you don’t have to worry about it ever again. Dental implants last forever, giving you a second chance with flawless teeth. However, in rare cases, dental implants can lead to complications, allergies, or implant failure — but the likelihood of that is negligible. Most patients go their whole lives with perfect artificial teeth because of implants. They look, feel, and act like actual teeth.
What can gum pain around the dental bridge suggest?
If you’re experiencing gum pain around the dental crown or bridge supported on the implant, you might have underlying gum disease or inflammation. This might indicate that you’re experiencing an allergic reaction or implant failure. The only way to determine the root cause of gum pain is through a detailed consultation and examination. Please contact your nearest dental implant specialist if you experience any complications with your dental implants.
