A healthy smile can make you more confident in your life
Going to the dentist has always had a scary stigma around it. Not to mention that tooth pain has been described to be one of the very worst pains that a person can experience. With so many people suffering from tooth pain and premature tooth loss the 10% of dentists who place implants are slowly growing larger. But many people worry when they hear the word dental implants thrown around. Many don’t know all of the facts that come along with having dental implants or what exactly dental implants are. Let’s delve deeper into what this is and what the stigmas around cosmetic dentistry are and remind you that there is no reason to hide away from going to the dentist and improving your teeth. Those stigmas from childhood about going to the dentist were meant to stay in your childhood and not meant to continue on to being an adult.
Three million people have dental implants and that number is growing steadily through the years. While they might seem like scary options, having implants put in really is not as big of a deal as some would believe. There are two different types of dental implants that are commonly used within these types of dental procedures.
Theses implants are placed within the jawbone. They are small and shaped like screws and typically made from titanium. These are the most commonly used type of implant.
These are the types of implants that are placed under the gum or above the jaw bone. These implants are a little less common, but still widely used within many mouths.
During the dental implant, the damaged tooth is removed, your jawbone is prepared for surgery (in some of these cases some bone grafting may need to be involved, dental professionals know what they’re doing and how to handle this of course). Then, after your jaw is all healed and is ready for the rest of the procedure to restore your teeth back to their original pearly white. Finally, once the metal post is in place your dentist can place the implant and the cap. Your teeth may be sore for a little while, but before you know it your smile will be back with vengeance and you’ll feel confident once again showing off your teeth.
