Losing teeth is a big problem because this can be caused for multiple issues like tooth decay that needs to be solved as soon as possible before the majority of the tooth gets lost, or even from other issues/infections that could harm the integrity of your other healthy teeth, for that reason, it will be better to remove that tooth that is causing the problem before the situation gets worse, but how would you replace that damaged tooth?
Well, the answer is kind of easy, with the help of dental implants everything will be easier for you and the dentist to handle since with surgery you can have that tooth replaced with an artificial implant, but what is this implant all about? Let’s discover it right now.
What are Dental Implants?
In a simple way of explaining it, dental implants are no more than titanium cylinders in form of a screw that will be inserted in your jawbone and gums to, later on, put a crown that will be the one that counts with the form of the artificial tooth.
Often, people tend to misunderstand both terms, dental implants and crowns are not the same things, the implants will be those cylinders that will allow the jawbone, gums, and crown to work properly without suffering from any pain or secondary effect after the surgery, and the crown is that metallic part that will be inserted on top of the cylinder to look and act like a traditional tooth.
Which People are Suited for Dental Implants?
Sadly, not everyone is suited for having a dental implant since they come with a large amount of responsibility under your shoulders, in fact, if you are not someone that counts with good dental hygiene such as knowing how to clean and brush your teeth then you can forget about even requesting a dental implant since this would cause more problems in the future due to your lack of knowledge on this dental hygiene topic.
Also, if you don’t have healthy gums then probably you need to wait sometime until your gums heal wit some treatment or recommendation that was given by your dentist and also, your jawbone needs to be suitable for the titanium cylinder, but in case that doesn’t fit, there are some techniques that would help to do so, just ask your local dentist.
