Replace Missing Teeth with Implant Dentistry
More adults than not have one or more missing teeth in the United States. As many as 69 percent have lost a tooth by middle age and by age 74, more than a quarter of the adult population has lost all of their natural teeth.
To replace missing teeth in the past, most patients resigned themselves to wearing dental appliances such as dentures and bridge, or nothing at all. Problems with fit, function, lack of bone density, and overall appearance are common complaints. Bridges cause damage to the enamel on existing teeth because they need to be ground down to support this replacement. Both dentures and bridges do nothing to mitigate bone loss since they do not make any contact with the jaw bone. When teeth are lost, the bone loses the natural stimulation that tooth roots provide.
Implant dentistry addresses all of these problems and makes it possible for patients with missing teeth to have a beautiful, healthy smile that matches the look and function of natural teeth. The titanium material used to make a dental implant is comfortable, resists decay, and is designed to behave much the way a real tooth root does to keep the jaw bone healthy and dense.
With implant dentistry, there are no limitations on how implants can be used. They work to replace one tooth or several. Either way, they look very natural and provide the permanency and strength needed to eat and speak without thinking about it. No noise, no slips, no special maintenance, and no worries. Unlike traditional appliances, dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care.
