By taking the place of missing tooth roots, dental implants can be used to provide support for dental crowns, bridges and even dentures. This revolutionary tooth replacement system provides for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. For many individuals who make the change from dentures to dental implant supported replacement teeth, this tooth replacement system is life changing.

If this sounds good, you might be wondering how long a dental implant will last. While it will vary from individual to individual, dental implants can last for a lifetime, with proper care. Typically, when a dental implant fails, it is due to improper home care or failure to seek treatment, when needed. Proper nutrition, overall health and other disease processes can also play a factor.

If you want to give your dental implants the very best chance of lasting for a lifetime, it is vitally important to practice good daily oral hygiene at home and to visit your dentist regularly for routine dental cleanings and checkups. If you experience problems with your implant or any dental problems at all, it is important to seek treatment immediately. In addition, eating a healthy, well-balanced diet and leading a healthy lifestyle can go a long way in protecting your long-term dental health.

Dental implants represent a significant investment that is well worth the cost for most individuals. If you do decide to invest in dental implants, you need to do all you can to protect your investment. If you would like to get more information about how to care for your dental implants or about dental implants in general, talk to a dental implants specialist in your local area.

Tooth loss is an embarrassing and debilitating problem facing many Americans today.  The best way to deal with tooth loss is to prevent it from happening in the first place.  You can decrease your chances of tooth loss by flossing and brushing daily and by getting your teeth professionally cleaned and checked by a dentist regularly (at least every six months).

One of the leading causes of tooth loss today is periodontal (gum) disease.  Gum disease is caused when the bacteria in plaque causes the gums to become inflamed.  It starts with Gingivitis, the mildest form of gum disease in which the gums swell and bleed easily.  You can reverse Gingivitis by getting a professional tooth cleaning and practicing good oral hygiene at home.

Untreated Gingivitis can lead to Periodontitis, an infection in the gums surrounding the teeth.  This sets off an inflammatory response that can result in the tooth loss.  The warning signs of periodontal (gum) disease include the following:

  • Bad breath
  • Persistent sore, swollen, red or bleeding gums
  • Tooth pain and sensitivity

If you are currently experiencing any of the above warning signs or if you suspect you may have periodontal disease, please schedule an appointment with a dentist as soon as possible.  Dental implants provide a permanent solution for missing teeth that enable patients to chew, eat, laugh and talk with confidence.  If you are currently missing teeth due to gum disease or any other reason, schedule an appointment with an Oral Surgeon to see if you are a candidate for this revolutionary tooth replacement system.
