Rutherford Dental Implants: Restoring Oral Aesthetics and Functionality
Rutherford Dental Implants: An Overview
Rutherford dental implants offer the comprehensive solution to patients presenting with single or multiple missing teeth. While we may like to think that our adult teeth are invulnerable, they can become broken, irreparably cracked, decayed and missing due to a myriad of causes. Poor lifelong oral hygiene, missed dental appointments, periodontal (gum) disease, accidental trauma to the face and serious chronic illnesses (such as cancer or diabetes) can all cause teeth to become unstable, fall out or need removal. The tooth replacement solution modern advanced dental and medical science has provided us with, are Rutherford dental implants.
Rutherford Dental Implants: What are They?
Rutherford dental implants are – from the tooth root to the crown – used to replace single or multiple missing teeth. They consist of a titanium metal screw(s) placed in the bone tissue of the jaw at the site of the missing tooth/teeth which is used to anchor aesthetically pleasing and fully functional artificial teeth. The choice of titanium as the metal from which to fabricate dental implants dates back to important scientific research done by Swedish professor Ingvar Brånemark in the early 1950s. Together with a clinical research team, Professor Brånemark found that titanium displayed a unique property that makes it capable of forming a very strong biological bond with bone! This process is termed ‘osseointegration’ and is the reason why medical science is able to use titanium to surgically repair and replace bones and joints in the human body! In addition to this unique property, titanium metal is also incredibly strong and non-corrosive, making it the perfect candidate for Rutherford dental implants.
Rutherford Dental Implants: The Procedure
The procedure involved in inserting Rutherford dental implants is fairly simple, but can be complicated by a lack of sufficient bone volume at the site/s of the missing tooth/teeth. Patients presenting with acute and chronic periodontal disease frequently suffer from bone loss in addition to tooth loss, in which case they may require bone grafting surgery prior to implanting. After a local anesthetic has been applied (patients also have the option for oral or intravenously administered sedatives) the base screw is inserted into a predrilled socket in the jaw bone. Subsequently, the tooth crown is affixed to it and the patient is deemed free to return home. In the months following the surgery, the titanium implant base will be forming a strong bong with the bone tissue and so patients are advised to avoid hard and crunchy foods that may tamper with this process. Osseointegration can take anywhere between three and six months to properly occur, but once it has Rutherford dental implants can last a lifetime!
Rutherford Dental Implants: A Final Note
Dental implants provide patients with single or multiple missing teeth with an incredible tooth replacement technique capable of restoring complete functionality and aesthetics of the mouth. Since the smile is a fundamental component of our social and professional interaction with other people, restoring it as well as the ability to speak and chew properly is the primary objective of Rutherford dental implants.
