Why are
implants
becoming
so popular?
THE ANSWER COLUMN
Quite simply, implants are the
next best thing to the real tooth. For
this reason, they are becoming more
and more popular for replacing
missing teeth.
A major use for implants is to
stabilize dentures, particularly a
lower denture to secure it and make
chewing and speaking much better.
Implants have been used for many
years and have a great track record.
They are a man-made anchor that
looks like a thick screw. They are made
of titanium and other materials that are
compatible with the human body.
The implant is seated into the bone
and allowed 3-6 months to integrate.
There are different styles of implants
used depending on things like bone
quality, location in the jaw and
preferences of the dentist.
Some implants require two or
three appointments to seat and
cover, in other cases an implant may
be placed and a denture attached to
it immediately.
There are a couple of steps
involved in most implant procedures.
First the dentist surgically places the
implant into the jaw bone. After
some time, the dentist will place an
extension called an abutment on the
implant. This serves as the base for
the tooth. Finally, the crown or
denture is made and fi tted to the
abutment or abutments and
cemented or screwed in place.
An implant looks and functions
like a natural tooth. Another great
benefi t is that it does not involve any
treatment of adjacent teeth for
stability or retention.
