Who is a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Who is a Candidate for Dental Implants?

It’s a sad fact that millions of people across the United States are missing at least one tooth, and several million are missing them all. Losing even one tooth can seriously affect your oral and overall health. This includes impacting how you eat, speak, maintain a healthy jawbone, and smile. 

The team at A Caring Dental Group in Cleveland, Ohio, provides the latest in tooth replacement options, including innovative Shatkin F.I.R.S.T.® mini dental implants that differ slightly from traditional-style dental implants. With these revolutionary new implants, you can get your implants in a single visit! 

Problems with missing teeth

Missing teeth are more than a detriment to your smile. Space between teeth can allow them to shift out of place and become misaligned. This makes keeping your teeth clean even harder. Shifting teeth can also impact your bite, affecting your speech and eating habits. 

An empty tooth socket provides a place for harmful bacteria to impact the health and integrity of your jawbone. It deteriorates without stimulating a tooth in that section of your jawbone, which can even affect how your face looks.

Dental implants can help

Dental implants are the closest thing to a natural tooth; they closely appear and mimic your teeth. They are permanently fixed to your jawbone with a titanium screw embedded in your jaw. An abutment sits atop this screw, and a dental crown completes the implant.  

Shatkin F.I.R.S.T. mini dental implants differ slightly from regular or traditional implants. The mini implant slightly protrudes from your gum to provide a strong support system for your new teeth. A minimally invasive oral surgery is required to place the implants, but they require no sutures or months of healing before you can enjoy a completed implant. 

You can leave with your implants on the same day! Your new teeth are color matched to your smile, so no one will be able to tell the difference. Eat your favorite foods again, smile broadly, and restore self-confidence in your beautiful new smile. 

Keeping up with oral hygiene is a snap, too. Just maintain regular brushing, flossing, and bi-annual professional exams and cleanings at A Caring Dental Group.
