Why Replace Missing Teeth
Missing teeth can be embarrassing and can actually lead to further damage that will affect your oral health. Once you lose a tooth, the surrounding teeth no longer have adequate support. These teeth will begin to slowly shift towards the void. When your teeth are no longer aligned properly, you become more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease. Also, without stimulation, the bone in area around the missing tooth will slowly begin to deteriorate. This is why it is important to replace your missing teeth as soon as possible. In doing so, you save your oral health and your self-esteem.
What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a small titanium post that resembles a screw. This metal post is surgically placed into the jaw bone at a predetermined location. Over time, it will fuse with the surrounding bone creating a durable anchor for a dental prosthesis. There are few different types and sizes of implants and the location of your missing teeth will determine which type Dr. Stein will use. One implant post is used to replace a single missing tooth and is restored with a dental crown. If multiple teeth are missing, anywhere from two to eight implants can be used to restore a dental bridge, partial denture or full denture.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implant supported restorations are an amazing and versatile dental innovation that are proving to be best solution for tooth loss. With a success rate of over 98%, many people are experiencing the life changing benefits they offer. They are the only permanent solution that replaces the missing teeth root’s thus preventing bone degradation.
When compared to traditional, removable dentures, dental implants allow you to eat a regular diet with little to no food restrictions. They also do not require adhesives and will not slip around in your mouth. There is no chance that they will fall out or cause slurred speech either.
Getting dental implants does not require damaging surrounding teeth as a tooth-supported dental bridge does. A dental implant is surgically placed only in the space where the missing tooth is located leaving your healthy teeth intact.
