The Best Tooth Replacement Option
Tooth loss can occur at any age for a number of reasons such as injury, decay or illness. We don’t want you to feel like you have to cover your mouth when you smile or struggle to eat or speak due to missing teeth. While there are several options to restore a missing tooth or teeth, there is one dental treatment that provides exceptional long-lasting results. Would you like to know more about this popular procedure?
If you’ve been living with one or more missing teeth, you might know about the different dental options available to you. Dental implants is a treatment we often recommend because it delivers a strong, durable solution that looks and functions just like your natural teeth. Additional benefits of implants for missing teeth include:
- Improved ability to chew food — No need to avoid hard or tough foods like apples or steak
- Improved speech — Tooth loss can affect the way you pronounce words
- Convenience — Implants are fixed restorations that do not need to be taken out
- Ease of care — Require the same brushing and flossing as natural teeth
- Long-lasting — Implants fuse with your jawbone and can last a lifetime with proper dental care
What’s more, missing teeth can be detrimental to your oral health. Without a tooth root to stimulate it, your jaw will start to deteriorate in the area of a missing tooth. This can wreak havoc on the overall health of your jaw and the adjacent teeth, which may start to shift into the open space.
Dental implants may also be used in conjunction with a bridge or fixed denture to better support these prosthetics. Besides being an optimal solution for missing teeth, implants are also used in cosmetic dentistry to improve the color or shape of a tooth. Advances in dental technology have improved the way we place dental implants, as well. Your dental implant experience will be comfortable, and you’ll be even more pleased with the results.
Your dental health is important to us and we want to make sure you know about the dental options available to you. Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to
seeing you at your next visit!
