Most people have 32 permanent teeth. This includes the wisdom teeth that are used for functions such as biting, chewing & grinding. Losing any of these teeth can lead to pain and it is also annoying not to be able to chew your food properly. Apart from this, any gaps in the teeth can also alter the positioning of the rest of your teeth and affect your “bite”. This can lead to jaw stress and pain.
Tooth implants are an ideal method of replacing damaged or extracted teeth. Full dental implants are used in cases where all the teeth have been lost due to age, disease or damage. They are a preferred alternative to conventional removable dentures that were commonly used until a decade ago. The latter are inconvenient to use and do not look or feel natural. Dental implants, on the other hand, look natural, are very comfortable in the mouth and are almost permanent.
In the full dental implant procedure, titanium screws are implanted in the jaw bone. Once the surrounding gum tissue grows over the screw, the crowns are then affixed to it. These dental implants are very functional and can last for more than 15 years. If they are cared for well, they will last even longer than that and are an ideal solution for lost teeth because:
