When your smile is punctuated by missing teeth, the problem goes beyond a cosmetic issue. The foundation of your oral health is severely compromised by missing teeth. Dental implants take the place of a tooth both below and above the surface. At Dentistry for Life, we focus on making your smile both healthy and beautiful.
Besides the obvious benefits of taking the place of missing teeth and completing your smile so it looks natural and works well, there are many other benefits of dental implants:
You are not alone if you have missing teeth. We regularly see patients who are plagued by the problems caused by a missing tooth. Some of the complications include:
One of the most revolutionary innovations in restorative dentistry, dental implants are a permanent solution to replace missing teeth. When a tooth is lost, it’s not only the crown of the tooth above the surface that is gone – the tooth root is absent too. The side effects that arise because of a missing tooth threaten the strength of your oral health.
Dental implants are metal posts made of either titanium or zirconium that are surgically implanted in the jawbone of a person with healthy bone volume and healthy gums. We give the implant time to heal and integrate into the bone, then affix a prosthetic tooth onto the implant so it looks and functions like a natural tooth.
Dental implants are a safe, progressive way to replace a missing tooth root and a missing tooth, offering stability and strength where there was none. This is a complete dental restoration that will allow you to have a complete, beautiful, durable, healthy smile.
We will evaluate your oral health, jaw density, and medical history when determining whether you are a good candidate for dental implants. Loose and missing teeth are often the result of advanced gum disease. If you have this problem, it will need to be treated before the possibility of dental implants can be considered.
It’s important for us to evaluate the strength of your jawbone and the health of your gum tissue to ensure that dental implants are the most beneficial dental restoration for you.
