Dental implants are a benefit in restoring missing teeth, they help support healthy chewing functions, and they prevent existing natural teeth from shifting while stimulating the jawbone and supporting healthy bone growth.
Dental implants are a significant investment in your future happiness, oral health, and quality of life.
When you get dental implants in St. Cloud, FL, Dr. Yang Hua will go over how to maintain them so that you can get many years of use from your implants.
Your Dental Implant's Lifespan
Dental implants are comprised of bio-compatible titanium—medical-grade material surgeons use when replacing a knee or hip joint. Dr. Hua fuses the implant post to your jaw bone— then the healing process begins.
Once the implant heals, it becomes a part of your body, just like a tooth root. We use titanium since it is reliable, long-lasting, and durable. If we need to replace the dental crown because it is worn, we can easily swap it out without affecting the titanium post.
Your Oral Health Impacts Your Implants
Your dental implants can last for a lifetime, especially if they are taken care of properly. It's essential to prevent gum disease or inflamed gums, for example.
Patients should brush and floss daily to remove the plaque that builds up on your teeth that can develop into gum disease. Your St. Cloud dentist can demonstrate how to clean around your dental implant properly.
When left untreated, gum disease can quickly start to deteriorate the jaw bone and pose a threat to your dental implant.
Visit Dr. Yang Hua at least twice a year for your dental check-up and cleaning in St Cloud, and so we can check your teeth and gums to ensure there is no tooth decay or gum disease.
