Advantages of Dental Implants
Doctor Derek Rogers is happy to offer cosmetic Dental Implants in Red Deer. Dental Implants can be used to replace missing or badly damaged teeth that require extraction. Besides aesthetic benefits Dental Implants also offer many functional advantages including:
A wisdom tooth is extracted to prevent complications or to correct a problem. Wisdom teeth problems can include:
- The jaw is not large enough causing a tooth to become impacted, unable to break through the gum
- Impacted teeth can cause serious complications such as infection, cysts or damaging bone or other teeth
- Wisdom teeth that only partially breakthrough the gum can become infected
- Wisdom teeth not growing at a correct angle causing the tooth to face forward, backward or sideways
Titanium Dental Implants are simply screws that are inserted into the bone of the jaw to replace the root of the missing tooth. Dental Implants are not painful; in fact most patients don’t notice the Implants are in place even the day after they were inserted.
Dental Implants are an effective replacement for missing teeth as they function and feel the same as teeth. Proper maintenance of dental implants is important to preserve the implants over the course of time. Dental implants replace the function of missing teeth, and as such, need to be cared for in much the same manner as natural teeth.
