WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?

Dental implants are metal replacement tooth roots that are surgical fixtures positioned into the jawbone beneath the gums. Dental implants provide an artificial root to allow dentists to mount a tooth or bridge above it. Implants at Barre Dentistry Implants are offered to patients to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or all of the teeth. Dental implants serve as teeth replacements while also restoring both the function and esthetics of the mouth, teeth and smile.

HOW DO DENTAL IMPLANTS WORK?

At Barre Dentistry & Implants, due to the implants natural structure and feel, dental implants are a highly effective solution for patients who suffer from missing teeth, or long-term dental problems. Dental implants provide a snug fit with support making tasks such as, eating and speaking easy for the patients unlike conventional dentures or bridge that occasionally shift in the mouth. Patients with healthy gums and bone support are offered dental implants and as with all dental placements, we encourage patients to practice good oral hygiene to maintain the implants for a longer period of time. Dental implants comprise of three parts; the implant (screw serving as a tooth root), the abutment (connecting post for the tooth) and the crown (prosthetic tooth). Our dental practice offers two types of dental implants; endosteal implants and subperiosteal implants.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU GO TO THE DENTIST?

Whether or not you have good oral health or poor oral health, a visit to the dentist is crucial. Our dentists offer more than just a regular dental check-up and cleaning, instead we carry out a thorough examination of the gum tissues and screen for potential diseases, such as periodontal disease and oral cancer to detect early onset of abnormalities. At Barre Dentistry  Implants, we highly recommend dental visits every six months to ensure continued health of the teeth and gums. We devise a customized dental hygiene plan for our patients comprising of undergoing dental examinations, professional teeth cleaning, x-rays and possible diagnostic procedures to prevent tooth decay or disease. By working together, our team of professional dentists at Barre Dentistry Implants ensures that our patients receive the appropriate care and treatment plan they deserve.

ENDOSTEAL IMPLANTS: — also known as a root form implant. Endosteal implant requires more than one surgical procedure consisting of an implant being surgically implanted into the jawbone. After allowing the gum to heal, a second surgery is performed to connect the abutment to the implant. Following this an artificial tooth is attached to the now connecting abutment.

SUBPERIOSTEAL IMPLANTS: — are metal frames that are fitted into the jawbone once the gum heals. The abutments located on the metal frame are then visible from the gums allowing the placement of a prosthetic tooth to be mounted above it.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU GO TO THE DENTIST?

Dental implants promote improved dental health for many patients. It is essential for dental implants to be properly cared for by practicing and maintaining good oral habits of brushing and flossing the teeth regularly. With good oral hygiene dental implants can last a lifetime making them a highly sought choice for long term tooth replacement.
