If you have missing teeth and do not want to go the route of dentures, you might check into dental implants. They are the next best thing to the natural teeth. In fact, you do not have to do anything different on a daily basis than you do with your natural teeth. The problem for some people is that there may not be enough bone in the upper jaw to support the implants. If this is your case, look no further than Zygoma implants for graftless dental implants.
Before the advent of Zygoma dental implants, this left two choices. One could select another method for taking care of missing teeth, such as dentures or, in some cases, bridges. The other choice involved doing a bone graft and waiting several months for it to heal sufficiently to be able to support a traditional implant. With Zygoma implants, a bone graft is no longer necessary. They provide an innovative solution for these individuals whereby the implants are secured to the lower part of the cheek bone. This can be done with only one procedure rather than multiple procedures, which are required when grafting is necessary.
Zygoma implants for graftless dental implants provide patients a short treatment time as compared to those that require grafts. The healing and recovery times are also shortened. Another plus is that fewer dental visits are required later on. These implants require little maintenance and provide a natural look to the cheeks and gums.
These amazing implants provide patients with a way of avoiding the disadvantages of dentures in ways that were not feasible before. Dentures must be taken out at night and stored appropriately. They also require special cleaning procedures. People with dentures are sometimes concerned that they can come out of the mouth at the most inopportune of times, such as when laughing with friends or speaking in front of a group of people.
Partial dentures have their disadvantages as well. The metal clasps that hold them in place can wear down the supporting natural teeth. These clasps can also irritate the cheek and gums, especially if they become distorted to where the ends are sticking out away from the teeth. People are also concerned at times about the appearance of the clasp, which is an obvious sign that they are wearing dentures.
If you have been wearing dentures for a while and are growing tired of them, or if you currently have missing teeth, you may want to look into Zygoma implants for graftless dental implants. They may turn out to be the solution you never thought would be possible. We are proud to offer these implants at the office of Dr. Michael Sohl in Stuart.
