Considering Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the perfect choice if you’re seeking a long-term and reliable way to restore your smile. Dental Art Clinic provides high-quality dental implants that seamlessly integrate with your natural teeth.

Understanding Dental Implants

Dental implants consist of three main components:
1. The Implant: A titanium screw serving as a root for the new tooth.
2. The Abutment: A connector placed on the implant holds the replacement tooth.
3. The Crown: A custom-made tooth attached to the abutment with the color and shape of your natural teeth.

Longevity of Dental Implants

With proper care and maintenance, the titanium implant can last a lifetime. The crown, usually made from porcelain, resin, ceramic, or metal, may need replacement every 10-15 years, depending on wear and tear. Don’t forget to maintain good oral hygiene practices to significantly extend your dental implants’ lifespan. This includes regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups.

Caring for Dental Implants

Here are some tips to ensure the longevity of your dental implants:
– Use a toothbrush twice a day for a minimum of two minutes at a time.
– Floss daily to avoid plaque and food particles between teeth and implants.
– Every six months, schedule professional cleanings and check-ups.
– Avoid biting on complex objects to prevent damage to your crown.
– Do not use your teeth to open packages or bottles.
– Consider using a custom mouth guard to protect your implants If you grind your teeth at night.

Crown Materials

The material of your crown plays a significant role in its durability. Crowns can be made from:
– Porcelain: Offers a natural look and is resistant to staining.
– Ceramic: Provides a strong and aesthetically pleasing option.
– Resin: A cost-effective choice that blends well with natural teeth.
– Metal: Highly durable and ideal for back teeth where the force of chewing is greater.
