When Are Dental Implants Necessary?
Last week, I performed a surgical extraction procedure for one of our new patients, Brett from Neutral Bay. After the procedure, he asked me, Hey Andy, When Are Dental Implants Necessary?
For patients with a missing tooth or several missing teeth, this is a very relevant question, so I thought I’d make a quick video discussing this topic, just in case you also have the same question.
Dental implants are a popular option for replacing missing teeth. They’re designed to look, feel, and function like natural teeth, and can last for many years with proper care.
So, when are dental implants necessary? Well, here are a few scenarios where they may be recommended:
First of all, if you have missing teeth – If you’re missing one or more teeth, dental implants can be an effective way to replace them. Implants are surgically placed into the jawbone, where they fuse with the bone to create a stable foundation for a replacement tooth or bridge.
Secondly, if you have decayed or damaged teeth – In some cases, decay or damage to a tooth may be so severe that it cannot be saved with a filling or crown. In these situations, a dental implant may be recommended to replace the damaged tooth.
And finally, if you have jawbone loss – If you’ve experienced significant jawbone loss, dental implants may be necessary to help restore the structure of your jaw and provide support for your teeth.
It’s important to note that dental implants may not be necessary or appropriate for everyone. Your dentist will evaluate your individual needs and recommend the best course of treatment based on your unique situation.
