What we have learned is people do not want implants, they want teeth. Functional, strong, pretty, easy to maintain teeth. Implants are only a component of the total treatment, and has become the standard of care for replacing missing teeth.
Your natural tooth & root is superior to any dental implant and your dentist will take every step to save that tooth. But if there is a situation you cannot avoid extracting the tooth, then a dental implant is the ideal choice for replacement.
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat healthier foods such as crunchy salads, apples, nuts and other hearty protein. Also, it is known that work security may depend on appearance/speech and not just talent. Implants replaces empty spaces, so you can smile and speak with confidence knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
Dental implants have a long history, but started being used as a successful option since the 1980’s by dental surgeons due to proven research and advancements. Implants are titanium posts that take the place of your root and hold your crown. THIS gives your jaw bone a job to do. This preserves your bone which allows your facial contours to remain full and youthful looking.
As the population ages, the demand to look and feel younger has grown. People have been educated by friends and family experiences the value of restoring spaces with implants versus having loose dentures or bridges. Some insurances now help pay for them because they recognize the cost benefit of longevity.
Your dentist creates a comprehensive treatment plan to improve your oral health, aesthetics and function. This plan may include dental implants. It is your dentist who will refer to Oral Surgery specialists, Drs. Hullett, for the consultation to see if you will be a successful implant candidate. Drs. Hullett have decades worth experience to know the inherent pros / cons of your current situation and what will work to meet your expectations.
