The Place To Restore Missing Teeth
Some other dental offices in the area can offer conventional solutions for tooth loss, but few offices in the area are able to offer the most modern solutions like dental implants. The thing to keep in mind is that there is no one-size-fits-all cure for missing teeth. During your consultation you will get a better understanding of how our dental office is equipped to offer each of the following ways of replacing missing teeth:
- Dental bridges
- Dental implants
- Mini dental implants
The Best Tooth Replacement Option
Old-school dentures are only capable of resting precariously on your gums, but dental implants are designed to be placed right into your jawbone. What’s more, implants are made from titanium, a material that naturally fuses to the jaw, acting just like the root of a tooth. This is one of the big reasons why implants are preferred over dentures by patients who are concerned about functionality. It is different for everyone, but depending on the situation, dentures provide only about 25 to 50 percent of the biting power of natural teeth. That means many of your favorite foods are forever off the menu. Plus, you are at risk of having the dentures slide on out of place at the worst possible times.
By contrast, once an implant is securely in place, we can restore it with crowns, bridges, or even full arches of dentures. If you’re already wearing dentures, we can simply place a few implants around the arch and then snap the dentures into the implants. Snapping your dentures into implants will improve your chewing ability and eliminate the need for denture adhesives.
Better Looking Too
When you are walking around with missing teeth, there are hard to overlook changes in your smile. The problem is embarrassing, but missing teeth cause people more trouble than just the diminished appearance of the smile area. You see, when teeth are lost, the jawbone will also recede. This recession will cause the other remaining teeth in the mouth to shift around. Plus, when the jawbone recedes, your face changes shape. People without teeth often wrinkles around the mouth and caved-in cheeks. Dental implants can preserve your jawbone and help you hold onto a more youthful appearance. Truth be told, with any luck, implants will make you look better and live longer.
