Dental Implants are one of the top ways to restore one’s mouth because they are extremely durable and look very realistic. Implants are made to last and easy to care for, making them the go-to option for dental restorations. If an individual is interested in having their smile perfected with false teeth, they can consider getting implants and restorations by Dr. Mark Washburn.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental Implants are screw-like pieces of metal that are topped with a false tooth. Implants are screwed into teeth sockets for increased stability and natural appearance. They are used to replace teeth that have fallen out, been broken, decayed or are unattractive with a natural looking perfected tooth. Dental Implants can be made to replicate the size, shape and color of surrounding or previous teeth so that they look as natural as possible. Mini Dental Implants, like their full sized counterparts, are screw-like pieces of metal that are installed into the gums. Mini Dental Implants are used to secure dentures into place by having them hook onto an apparatus on the bottom of the dentures. This allows denture wearers to talk and laugh exuberantly without the fear of their dentures flying out of their mouth due to inadequate adhesive creams.
What Are The Pros of Using Dental Implants?
As tooth loss occurs, the jawbone naturally begins to recede backwards. Electing to get Dental Implants over dentures means that it is less likely that this jaw recession will occur because it essential tricks the mouth into thinking that the teeth are still in their sockets. Dental Implants are very durable and longer lasting than dental bridges, as they are secured into the gums rather than sitting on top. Mini implants are a much more efficient way to keep dentures in place than adhesive creams, as they cannot be removed without the user physically attempting to remove them.
Who Needs Dental Implants?
There are a variety of different reasons that would dictate an individual needing one or a set of Dental Implants. Implants are often used to replace teeth that have gone beyond the point of repair from other forms of dentistry. Implants can be used to replace teeth that have become so rotten or decayed that they are going to fall out or have already done so. Dental Implants can also be used as a form of cosmetic dentistry, to replace teeth that are discolored or misshapen to create a more attractive smile. Dental Implants can also be used as an alternative to dentures. Mini implants are strictly used to keep dentures in place.
How Are Dental Implants Installed?
Dr. Washburn works with a team of local specialists who place the Implants in the highest standards using the most up to date technology. From there Dr. Washburn will restore the Implants to the highest aesthetic standards using his more than 30 years of experience.
How Do You Take Care of Dental Implants?
Dental Implants are very easy to care for. They require nothing more than routine cleaning and flossing. Dental Implants are more dependable than natural teeth because they rarely get cavities or gum disease.
