Ever wondered how you could go from a mouth full of missing or deteriorating teeth to a beautiful, confident smile in just 24 hours? It sounds like something out of a science fiction novel, but it's a reality at Nuvia Dental Implant Center. If you've ever been curious about how full mouth dental implants work, you're in the right place. Keep reading to unravel the mystery and discover how this transformative procedure could be the key to unlocking a new you.
What Are Dental Implants?
When you've lost some or all of your teeth, what can you do? That's where full mouth dental implants come in. Think of them as a brand new smile that will replace your broken down or missing teeth. Dental implants have come a long way in helping people regain their ability to smile, eat, and live a normal life again after losing their natural teeth.
And one of the best parts aside from their ability to function just like natural teeth, is the fact that they are almost identical to what your natural teeth look like. When you smile, you will be flashing a beautiful set of pearly whites that most likely nobody will know that they are not your real teeth unless you tell them.
The Mechanics of Full Mouth Dental Implants
Think of a dental implant as a strong anchor that holds your new teeth in place. The implant itself is a small post made of titanium, a metal that your body generally likes and accepts. This post is surgically placed into your jawbone, where it acts like the root of a natural tooth. Over time, your jawbone forms a tight bond with the implant in a process called osseointegration. This is just a fancy way of saying that the bone grows around the implant, making it super stable.
Once this bonding process is complete about 4-6 months after surgery, your implants will be strong enough to eat anything you like. We use very strong materials like titanium and zirconia to be able to give you both a beautiful and strong smile.
The Importance of the Materials We Use
When it comes to dental implants, the material we use matters a lot. Why? Because we want something that's strong, but also friendly to your body. That's where titanium comes in. It's a strong metal, but it's also lightweight, so it doesn't feel heavy in your mouth. The best part? Your body is likely to accept it, rather than reject it. Just like when you get an organ transplant, you want your body to accept it. This is super important because it means the implant is more likely to be successful in the long run, giving you a sturdy and reliable new smile.
How Long Do They Last?
One of the remarkable aspects of dental implants is their enduring nature. While no medical procedure can offer a 100% lifetime guarantee, dental implants have a track record of long-lasting success when cared for properly. By adhering to the care guidelines your dental team provides, you're setting the stage for years, possibly even decades, of stability and function. The teeth that accompany the implants are also built to last. They may need refreshing after a number of years, but this is a straightforward process. So rest assured, when you invest in dental implants, you're investing in a solution designed for the long haul.
