Are you dealing with tooth loss? You want a solution, but today there are lots of options available. There are bridges, dentures, and dental implants, but how do you know which is right for you?

Dentists today consider dental implants to be the tooth replacement of choice. Implants are unique because, of all the solutions available, they look, feel, and function the most like a natural tooth.

What Is a Dental Implant?

An implant is a tiny screw-like post that is placed in your jaw bone and acts as an artificial tooth root. The implant is left to heal for several months, and since it is made of biocompatible titanium, it fuses with ...

How to Know When a Dental Implant is Right for You

Living with missing teeth can take a toll on your quality of life. Studies have been conducted that indicate tooth loss impacts even simple actions like eating, speaking, smiling and the most basic emotions like your confidence.

Of course, missing teeth affect your oral health as well. Neighboring teeth gravitate toward the gap in your smile and lead to alignment problems and destructive habits like bruxism (teeth grinding). With no tooth root to stimulate its growth, your jawbone can deteriorate and lead to gum and bone loss, which can also change the contours of your face.

Why You Should Consider a Dental Implant

None of this sounds pleasant, does it? Fortunately, however, ...

Dental implants have been around long enough now that you probably know they are a permanent tooth replacement option. Mini dental implants are not as well-known, but they generally perform the same function as conventional implants.

How Mini Dental Implants Compare

However, compared to a conventional implant, minis are much smaller, about the width of a toothpick. Their small size makes them perfect for replacing small teeth like incisors or for securing loose-fitting dentures.

Dental implants are one of the most popular treatment options for missing teeth available today, and while they are one of the most successful and effective options, there are still cases where implant surgeries fail. Implants can fail due to a number of issues, including infection, rejection of the implant, weak connection to the bone, and mechanical issues. 

Reducing Implant Failures

One of the most common reasons that an implant can fail is peri-implantitis, which occurs when biofilms develop on the implant during the healing process. A new study found that by implementing thin coatings to the implant posts, this issue can be reduced.

The coatings are made of a combination ...

The development of improved dental techniques and materials is occurring at a dizzying pace. The idea of dental implants was pretty revolutionary when they were first developed. But as innovative as tooth implants are, scientists have still found a way to improve on the original concept to further ensure long-term success.

Implants That Protect Against Gum Disease?

Dental implants have a 98% success rate, which is pretty awesome. The main reason that an implant might fail is an infection that develops as a result of biofilm. Biofilm is a fancy term for a bacteria-laden plaque that builds up on teeth and leads to gum disease, which can compromise the stability of ...
