Front Tooth Implant – What is it?

A front tooth implant is a cosmetic dental treatment for people who are missing their front tooth or incisor. Front tooth loss can be due to an accident, due to improper oral care or due to a trauma. Missing a front tooth can ruin a smile and make a person very self-conscious.

During the treatment, an implant is surgically placed in an opening that a dentist creates in the jawbone. Once the implant integrates with the jawbone, it behaves as a new ‘’root” for the crown, which will replace your missing front tooth. A cap (crown), that looks almost like a natural tooth, is attached to the implant and fills the space left in the mouth by the missing tooth.

A front tooth implant is a complicated oral treatment. According to dentists across the globe, for this treatment to work, there must be adequate bone in the jaw. The lesser bone area could lead to a dental implant failure. Moreover, the secondary requirement for the treatment is strong jawbone so that it can firmly hold and support the implant at the time of chewing the food, talking and while performing other day-to-day activities.

Fortunately, if you don’t have enough jawbone area for the implant, then there is a procedure available, known as bone grafting or bone augmentation. Bone augmentation is a medical term that defines a variety of procedures used to "build" bone so that dental implants can be placed. These procedures typically involve grafting (adding) bone or bonelike materials to the jaw; hence, it is also known as bone grafting. Furthermore, natural teeth and supporting tissues near where the implant will be placed must be in good health.

Why You Need Front Tooth Implant?

A front tooth implant is an artificial replacement for a tooth’s root. It fits directly into the jawbone and grips a crown or artificial tooth in place, in the same way, the roots support the natural teeth. You may need a front tooth implant if you have lost a tooth or are about to lose a tooth due to gum disease. However, according to dentists, it is the perfect solutions if:
  • You come to know that you are going to lose your tooth
  • You have a failed or damaged crown
  • You have a broken or cracked tooth
  • You have a severely decayed tooth
  • You have lost a tooth in an accident or due to a trauma
In the case of any of the medical conditions mentioned above, you are liable for front tooth implants, and must visit your nearest dental implant specialist for further guidelines and the treatment. After a primary check-up, your dentist will advise you the most suitable time and mode of treatment.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

To be honest, if you lost your front tooth you are a candidate for a front tooth implant. Despite being healthy, there are some conditions and diseases that can affect whether the front tooth implant is a perfect treatment for you or not. For instance, diseases such as cancer, uncontrolled diabetes, radiation to the jaws, alcoholism, smoking or uncontrolled periodontal diseases can affect the front tooth implant. These diseases hinder the strong fusion of implants into the jawbone. Therefore, if you are suffering from any of these diseases, then better inform your dental surgeon about your medical status together with complete medications you consume.

How Does It Work?

Most of us suffer from dental phobia; hence, it is obvious that a wave of fear may pass through the spine when our dentist suggests dental implant as a treatment to regain our lost smile. It may sound weird and horrifying, but dental implants are just titanium posts that are surgically attached to the bone of the jaw in the region of a missing tooth. And as we all know titanium is bone-friendly, it gradually fuses with the jawbone to create a rigid structure almost identical to a tooth root. At the end of the fusion process, the crown, and the abutment is attached to enable normal chewing functions.
For better understanding, the entire procedure is fragmented into three stages, and they are:
  • The Implant: It is made of titanium. It is surgically placed in the jawbone of the missing tooth or teeth.
  • The Abutment: It is either made of titanium, porcelain or gold, and it is given the shape of a natural tooth to receive a crown. During the implant therapy, it is attached to the implant with the help of a screw. Abutment acts as a connecting link between the implant and the crown.
  • The Restoration (Crown): The restoration (the part that looks like a tooth) is a crown. The crown is made of porcelain fused to a metal alloy, all porcelain, or all metal. It is cemented or screwed onto the abutment. If the crown is screwed to the abutment, the screw hole is covered with a tooth-coloured filling material so that it appears natural.

Why Should I Choose Implants?

According to dentists, a dental implant is the best treatment to replace your missing tooth. You may probably have the option of dental bridges, but implants guarantee a long-term solution. Compared to other cosmetic treatments, implants offer several advantages.
  • Implants look natural
  • Implants function equally good as natural teeth
  • Implants have a low risk of complication
  • Implants are highly comfortable
  • Unlike bridges, implants can replace several teeth
  • Implants stabilise a loose denture

Are Dental Implants Safe?

Since more than two decades, dentists across the globe prefer dental implants for their patients when it comes to replacing missing teeth. Implants are safe for everyone, having the lowest risk of complications among dental prosthetics. Not only they are natural looking and comfortable, but another most impressive reason to choose implants is that they are made of titanium. The titanium is a biocompatible material that fuses with the jawbone and offers a rigid and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth.

In modern dentistry, dental implant therapy is one of the safest and most predictable procedures. It is one of the strongest devices available to support replacement teeth and allows your replacement teeth to look, feel and function naturally. Furthermore, a dental implant is the only teeth replacement therapy that stimulates natural bone underneath the missing tooth. With adequate care and maintenance, dental implants can be a lifelong solution for replacing missing teeth.

Confused Between Bridges or Implants?

Missing tooth replacement techniques have come a long way in the last three decades. Extracted or missing teeth raise a serious concern of infection, but the proper replacement is the key to a beautiful smile. However, when you visit your dentist or prosthodontist, you should ask them which tooth replacement technique is better for you and why. Here is a quick checklist to help you decide, which is a better option for your missing teeth.

Check all that apply:

Do you want the most natural-looking replacement for missing teeth?
Do you want a tooth replacement that will help you preserve the jawbone?
Do you want a long-term value for the money?
Do you want a long-term, reliable solution to missing or extracted tooth or teeth?
Do you want to stay carefree about your replacement teeth when you laugh, talk or eat?
Do you want a solution that demands less maintenance?

If you choose one or more than one items above, then dental implants are the right option for you. Unlike dentures or bridges, it can offer all the advantages mentioned above, making it a perfect tooth replacement option that will leave you smiling.

What are the Advantages of Dental Implants?

Compared to other treatment alternatives such as dentures and bridges, dental implants offer tons of advantages. The most loved advantage offered by an implant is that it does not affect the health of the surrounding natural teeth. A dental implant is a cosmetic treatment to replace single or more than one tooth; hence, you can ask your dentist for implants even if you have lost more than one tooth.
There are plenty of advantages of why dental implants are the first choice of dentists when it comes to replacing missing teeth. Here are some of the top advantages of dental implants:
  • Implants guarantee healthy, natural looking teeth
  • Implants guarantee long-term solution to missing teeth
  • Implants allow you enjoy without worrying about your teeth
  • Implants help you retain your natural face shape and smile
  • Implants protect your jawbone
  • Implants allow you speak, talk and laugh naturally
  • Implants inhibit the chances of cavities
  • Implants protect surrounding teeth
  • Implant is the most predictable restoration method

Implants guarantee healthy, natural looking teeth

Dental implants guarantee strong and stable teeth that look, feel, work and fit like natural teeth. An implant looks so natural that it is hard to distinguish between the natural and artificial teeth. Alternative treatments such as dentures and bridges can lead to bone deterioration, and may hinder the day to day activities such as eating, talking and laughing. Whereas implants fuse with the jawbone and protect adjacent teeth.

Implants guarantee a long-term solution to missing teeth

There are alternative treatments for missing teeth such as dental bridges and dentures, but both these treatments come with an expiry date. Even if you adhere to a strict maintenance routine, bridges and dentures won’t last more than 10 years. At some point of time, you may need to replace your bridges or dentures. However, the scenario is totally different with dental implants. If you follow a daily maintenance and care routine, they can last a lifetime.

Implants lets you enjoy without worrying about your teeth

Implants are highly comfortable and natural looking; hence, you don’t need to stay home, feel uncomfortable in public places, feel embarrassed because of your smile, or need to worry about your missing teeth. Implants let you enjoy without worrying about your teeth. Implants also allow you to eat whatever you want without worrying about them breaking.

Implants help you retain your natural face shape and smile

In the absence of teeth, your face may appear sunken, sad and ugly. An implant is a rigid solution to missing teeth that allow you to uplift the natural shape of your face and smile.

Implants protect your jawbone

When you lose teeth due to one or the other reason, the gap or void created can lead to serious health consequences such as the loss and deterioration of your jawbone. If the open space created due to missing teeth is not supported by anything, the jawbone deteriorates, losing its firmness and strength. A dental implant is the only missing tooth replacement therapy that protects the jawbone and stimulates the natural bone growth. It prevents the bone deteriorations and inhibits bone loss.

Implants allow you speak, talk and laugh naturally

Dental implants keep the teeth where they belong; hence, you don’t need to worry about your teeth slipping or falling out of your mouth. You can brush, floss and care for your teeth exactly the way you would do with your natural teeth. Moreover, it also lets you enjoy speaking, eating and laughing naturally.

Implants inhibit the chances of cavities

There is little or no chance of cavity growth in an implant-restored crown or replacement tooth because it is artificial. Nevertheless, you should still visit your family dentist regularly for a routine care and clean-up process of your gums and mouth.

Implants protect surrounding teeth

In an alternative missing tooth replacement treatment, such as tooth-supported bridges, dentists grind away the adjacent teeth on both sides of the missing tooth – thereby damaging healthy teeth to restore that are missing. Dental implants go in the jawbone of the missing tooth without damaging the adjacent healthy teeth. Additionally, implants also prevent the shifting of healthy adjacent teeth.

Implants - The most predictable restoration method

Dental implants hold a proven track record of being the most successful, reliable, and long-lasting missing teeth replacement therapy. It is often considered “More Predictable” than other missing teeth replacement treatment to replace or repair missing teeth.

What are the Different Stages of Treatment with Dental Implants?

  1. A space is gently prepared in the jawbone, and the dental implant fitted. 
  2. The implant is left to heal for 3-6 months.
  3. The implant is exposed and a healing collar placed, which shapes the gum.
  4. A post is placed in the dental implant, and a crown is fitted.

Dental implants can be used to replace single or multiple teeth or where patients have no teeth at all; they can be used to provide a fixed bridge or to make a loose denture more stable.
  • Dental implants are made of special material which bone loves.
  • We have 20 years of experience successfully placing thousands of dental implants.

How to Care for Implants?

Just like you care for your teeth the same way you have to care for your implants. Following the placement of a dental implant, it is important to keep the surrounding area clean. It is necessary that you brush and floss every day. For better results, use a 45-degree angle as the standard brushing technique. You can also use plastic coated interdental brushes for safe and effective plaque removal. Tightly floss approximal surfaces and implants. Ensure all surfaces are clean. Adapt floss or tape for teeth and gums. If you have any problems, see your dentist before your six-month recall visit.
