Today with advanced technology the concept of dental implants is undergoing a rapid and positive change. Your periodontist will provide you with treatment options for dental implants such as fixed and removable. Presently it is not unusual to hear dental implants being referred to as removable or fixed. Dental implants are small titanium posts that a dentist places in the bone so that it serves the same function as the natural root of your tooth. In this way implants act as new permanent roots. As a result replacement teeth in your mouth are held in place by the implants. It depends on the periodontist whether the artificial teeth are removed or fixed permanently on the implants.
Fixed dental implants are designed using technology and created using zirconia that is considered the hardest material in the dentistry world. It is the material that resembles a tooth and thus blends with your natural teeth and appears just like a natural tooth. It is not only appearance as the process usually goes beyond looking like a real tooth to feeling and functioning like natural teeth. Patients can clean them just as they do with natural teeth. Dental implants are without a doubt the highest option possible when it comes to replacement of damaged or missing teeth.
Many patients are of the opinion that they want the removable option which is specially designed to snap off and on your dental implants. Though it is a preferred line of treatment for traditional dentures which have no implants to hold them and thus need adhesives to stay in place. Your periodontist will consider a number of factors before deciding the choice of treatment between removable dental implants and fixed dental implants. Your oral surgeon will first focus on number of missing teeth as it is essential to know how many teeth you are missing in the lower and upper jaw.
If you are missing just a few teeth, it is not necessary to get a fixed dental implant there is no point of getting an implant as well as a removable set of teeth to go with it. If you are missing just few teeth, dental implants of the fixed nature will natural looking teeth.
Dental implants are a onetime investment that makes it easy to maintain and clean your teeth. There are varied options that will suit your budget and thus consult your periodontist before choosing between options that suits your budget best.
