A broken tooth: how dental implants provide a solution

Breaking a tooth can be unexpected and painful, significantly impacting your smile and confidence. Dental implants are a durable and natural-looking option for replacing damaged or lost teeth. This article discusses how dental implants can help with a broken tooth and why they are considered one of the best restoration methods.

Dental implants: what are they?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots placed in your jawbone to replace the roots of missing or damaged teeth. After implantation, they integrate with the bone in a process called osseointegration. The artificial root creates a solid foundation on which a crown can be attached, making the implant both functional and aesthetically similar to your natural teeth. This allows you to eat, speak, and laugh without any worries.

Dental implants: the benefits

Dental implants offer a long-lasting solution
Dental implants are designed to last for many years and provide the same functionality as natural teeth. They can withstand daily chewing pressure and, with proper care, have a very long lifespan.

Dental implants prevent bone loss
When a tooth is lost, the jawbone that supported the tooth begins to degenerate. This can lead to further dental problems. Dental implants stimulate the jawbone in a similar way to natural tooth roots, preventing bone loss.

Dental implants restore your smile
A broken tooth can affect your confidence. A dental implant provides a natural-looking replacement that is barely distinguishable from your own teeth, restoring your smile.

Dental implants protect your natural teeth
Unlike traditional bridges, which often require adjacent teeth to be ground down, implants do not affect your other teeth. This helps keep your natural teeth intact and healthy.

A broken tooth: the replacement process

If you have a broken tooth, your dentist or implantologist will first remove the remnants of the damaged tooth and then assess whether an implant is suitable. This is done using a CBCT-scan. If you are a candidate, the implant is placed in your jawbone under local anesthesia.

After the implantation, the implant must integrate with the bone over several months. Immediate loading may sometimes be possible. Once the implant is firmly anchored, a permanent crown matching the color and shape of your other teeth is produced. This permanent crown is then attached to the implant, giving you a fully functional tooth again.

Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential after placing dental implants. Regular brushing, flossing, and periodic dental check-ups for cleaning and inspection are crucial for the longevity of your implants.
