Implant dentistry is the most advanced therapy available to replace missing teeth. Dental implant restorations generally look, feel, and act like natural teeth.
Dental implants may offer you important advantages compared to other treatment options. Improved health and enhanced appearance may both lead to greater self-confidence and a better quality of life. Ask us today if you are a candidate for dental implants.
IMPROVED QUALITY OF LIFE
Dental implants are designed to be a long-lasting solution for tooth loss and are cared for with brushing and flossing, just like natural teeth. Caring for non-implant tooth replacements can be much less convenient compared to implant-supported teeth. Dental implants also eliminate the need to use messy dental adhesive
When a tooth is lost, the surrounding bone begins to shrink away or resorb and becomes increasingly brittle, compromising adjacent teeth and increasing the chance of a changed appearance. Non-implant supported dentures, such as partials or bridges, may actually accelerate this process. Dental implants may help to prevent or slow bone resorption, helping to preserve your natural facial contours.
WHAT IS SINGLE TOOTH REPLACEMENT?
Teeth can be lost for a number of reasons, including cavities, periodontal disease, or trauma. Did you know that by age 17, more than 7.3 percent of U.S. children have lost one permanent tooth; and by age 50, Americans have lost an average of 12 teeth?
If you are missing one tooth in a given area of your mouth, we may recommend that you consider one dental implant to replace the root of the missing tooth, and an implant crown to rebuild your tooth in a beautiful and natural-looking manner. Compared to other treatment options to replace missing teeth, such as bridges and removable partials, an implant with an implant crown offers a long-lasting solution for a missing tooth and requires fewer follow-up office visits.
