Dental Implants: The Ultimate Solution for Missing Teeth | Queen Dental Implants

Having missing teeth can be embarrassing and make everyday tasks like eating and speaking difficult. Dental implants are a permanent solution that can give you a healthy, strong, and beautiful smile. Whether you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants are a safe, effective, and long-lasting treatment option. 

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a permanent dental restoration solution that involves surgically placing small titanium rods into your jawbone to act as artificial tooth roots. Once the implant is in place, a custom-made dental crown, bridge, or denture can be attached to the rod to replace the missing teeth. Dental implants are designed to look and feel like your natural teeth and are an excellent alternative to traditional dentures or dental bridges. 

Benefits of Dental Implants

When it comes to restoring your smile, dental implants have several advantages over traditional dentures or bridges. Here are a few of the benefits of getting dental implants: 

  • Improved Oral Health: Dental implants don’t require the removal of other healthy teeth, like dental bridges do, so they are a great option for maintaining good oral health. 
  • Natural Feel: Since dental implants are designed to look and feel like your natural teeth, you’ll never have to worry about them slipping out of place or feeling uncomfortable.
  • Durability: Dental implants can last for decades if properly cared for. 
  • Improved Self-Confidence: Missing teeth can be embarrassing, but dental implants can restore your smile and confidence. 

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

Most adults are good candidates for dental implants, but you should always consult with your dentist to find out what’s best for your oral health. Generally, the best candidates for implants have good oral health, healthy gums, and enough jawbone to support the implant. 

If you are considering dental implants, your dentist will assess your oral health and create a customized treatment plan. After thoroughly examining your mouth, they may recommend preparing your jawbone by removing any unhealthy teeth or gum tissue, or adding a bone graft to the area. 

The Dental Implant Procedure

The dental implant procedure typically takes several months and involves a few steps: 

  • Your dentist will place the implant into your jawbone and allow it to heal and fuse to the bone. 
  • Once the implant has healed, your dentist will attach the abutment, which is the connector piece between the implant and the crown. 
  • Finally, the custom-made dental crown, bridge, or denture is attached to the abutment, restoring your smile. 

Dental implants are a safe, effective, and permanent solution to missing teeth. If you’re considering dental implants, please contact our office to schedule a consultation. With proper care, dental implants can last for decades, giving you a healthy and beautiful smile for years to come.
