Ask yourself, is missing teeth causing:
- you to hide your smile?
- you to have to wear uncomfortable, unstable dentures?
- you difficulty while eating?
- your food to become stuck in between teeth?
- your face to look sunk in?
Your dental health is important and having teeth that allow you to smile, speak, eat and laugh confidently and without pain makes all the difference in the world! If you are missing one or more teeth, there is good news!
“Today’s best possible option for teeth that have been removed is dental implants.”
Replacing a tooth with a dental implant is now considered the standard of care for missing teeth. Not only do dental implants feel, fit, look and function like natural teeth, they are permanently fixed into place, giving you a stability and confidence when eating, speaking or laughing! In fact, they are so much like natural teeth that you will forget that you ever lost a tooth in the first place!
What is a Dental Implant?
Dental Implants are a life changing and lasting solution for one or more missing teeth that uses artificial tooth root-like devices, placed into your jawbone to:
- Replace one or more teeth without affecting the adjacent teeth
- Support a bridge to eliminate the need for a removable partial denture
- Support a denture, making it more secure and comfortable.
Why Dental Implants?
Ideally, everyone would like to keep their natural teeth healthy for a lifetime. Unfortunately, some circumstances are such that a tooth has to be removed, as in the case of irreparable infection, disease or damage.
After teeth are lost, your dentition and bone begin to collapse. The surrounding bone begins to shrink in size and adjacent teeth begin to tip into the space once occupied by the missing tooth. Over time, other surrounding teeth move out of alignment and new spaces occur between them. Food gets stuck in between teeth more easily and bacterial plaque buildup increases. All of this also increases your susceptibility to decay, gum disease, infection and more loss of surrounding tissue and bone.
The more teeth you lose, the more work is brought to bear on the remaining ones which can weaken and damage them over time!
In order to avoid this dental collapse and its vicious cycle, the space must be replaced with another functional tooth. A dental Implant does the job, and with proper care and maintenance, they can last a lifetime!
