Dental implants: what you need to know
Are you worried about your smile because you are missing one or more teeth? Have you ever considered placing dental implants? At Clinique Dentaire Champlain, our specialists offer an outstanding prosthetic dentistry service (dental prostheses) to help you restore the appearance of your mouth. Read on to learn more about this solution that is recommended by the majority of dentists!
What is a dental implant?
Dental implants act like the roots of teeth. These are small rods made of titanium, zirconia or polymer that are covered with a biocompatible material that has the ability to bind naturally to the jaw bone (through a phenomenon called "osseointegration"). The latter are inserted into the jaw or mandible and act as anchors to support a removable or fixed dental prosthesis.
What are the benefits of using dental implants?
One of the many advantages of dental implants is that they are very strong. Indeed, since they effectively stabilize your dental prosthesis, you no longer have to compromise on your food choices - crisp apple, corn on the cob and crusted bread are now within reach! In addition, dental implants are an excellent investment, as they rarely need to be replaced and therefore offer a durable and reliable long-term solution.
In addition, dental implants are very comfortable and discreet. They do not cause any unpleasant friction or movement on your gums. No more pain associated with wearing a traditional dental prosthesis!
How to properly maintain dental implants?
Another interesting feature of dental implants is their ease of maintenance. Indeed, you only have to proceed as if they were your natural teeth. Make sure to brush them at least twice a day and floss daily. In addition, regular visits to the dentist are also required to ensure that your implants remain in perfect condition for as long as possible.
