Why You Might Consider Dental Implants
At Aesthetic Smile Design, we always seek the most conservative treatment possible that will provide you with an outstanding solution. Often the best treatment might be simple, but sometimes more complicated treatment could be required.
Placing dental implants is one of our most complicated procedures and we carefully consider your situation and needs when considering them as a solution for you. When you have missing teeth, we believe implants provide the best foundation for us to add the restorations you may need to rebuild your smile. Implants, together with their restorations, last a lifetime with proper care. Here is a list of some of the benefits you will receive from your implants:
The implant itself is a post made from titanium that fuses with your bone over time. Once placed, it will take several months for the bone to fill in around the implant, providing you with a secure “root” base for a future restoration.
- Function Like “Real” Teeth
Because the implant establishes such a stable foundation, the restorations that are added to it really do feel like your “real” teeth. Since the implant will be stronger than your own teeth you can once again eat corn on the cob and apples without fear. Another bonus — studies have shown that implants stimulate growth in the jawbone which will help to stop added bone loss.
- Versatile Restoration Base
Whether you are missing one or several teeth, implants can provide a treatment solution. When only one tooth is missing, placement of an implant avoids the need for a bridge, which would require treatment of adjoining teeth to create abutments. When several teeth are gone, multiple implants can become the foundation for a permanent bridge or denture.
- Possible Permanent Solution
Implants should be cared for just as you would your natural teeth. You will need to brush and floss daily and avoid chewing ice or hard candies. Tooth grinding and smoking are habits you need to avoid, too. Maintaining regular exams will help ensure that any of your dental problems will be caught before they can cause too much trouble.
