Dental implants are generally considered the gold standard of tooth replacement. These durable and permanent restorations most closely resemble the look, feel, and function of your natural teeth. They consist of a metal screw implanted in your jaw that bonds with the bone to provide a stable base. A full crown is placed on top of the screw to replace your missing tooth.
Why is this your best option? When you lose a tooth, your jaw bone can begin to deteriorate without any roots to support. This can cause teeth on either side of the gap to lean in, disrupting your bite pattern and your ability to chew normally. An implant eliminates such risks by providing a post to maintain the structure of the jaw and a crown to complete your smile. The result is a tooth that looks and functions like the original, allowing you to eat, drink, smile, laugh, brush, and floss just as you did before tooth loss.
There are many reasons why a patient might lose multiple teeth or even all of the teeth in the upper or lower jaw, including severe trauma, illness, gum disease, or other health complications. When this occurs, it can be devastating.
Even more difficult for many patients is adjusting to traditional dentures. Although they are held in place by dental fixative, they can shift and cause difficulty eating, or even some irritation to the gums. They can limit the foods and beverages you consume and cause anxiety about whether or not they might slip out of place while you’re eating, talking, or laughing.
Implant dentures are a more permanent alternative that pair dentures with dental implants to increase function, comfort, and confidence. The procedure starts with placing the implants, after which a row of dentures can be permanently attached. The process could take several months, but in the end you’ll enjoy a permanent and stable smile restoration.
Today’s Dentistry is proud to help every patient choose the tooth replacement treatments that best suit their needs. Whether you’re missing a single tooth or your circumstances are more severe, you deserve the confidence and functionality that can be gained through tooth replacement.
