When you lose your natural teeth, a myriad of oral health concerns often follows. For some, losing teeth may soon mean an older appearance and limits to what you can eat. To help Brighton, MA, residents avoid these complications and enjoy a full smile, we may suggest implant dentistry. In today’s blog, learn more about the implant process, and our free consultations!
Ready to Replace Your Missing Teeth?
If you have lost one tooth, or several, then we can help. A dental implant is a screw-like device that is made from biocompatible titanium, a material the body accepts as natural. Meaning once we insert the dental implant into the jawbone, osseointegration take place, bonding it with the jawbone like a real tooth root. After a healing period, we can attach a crown to act as the visible portion of your new tooth and to provide a durable chewing surface. If you have lost several teeth, then multiple dental implants can provide a basis for a fixed bridge or denture. When you schedule a free consultation, we will discuss your goals for your smile, and assess the extent and cause of your tooth loss. From there, we can decide if dental implants are the right choice, and discuss the placement process in detail.
The Benefits of Implant Dentistry
Since the implant portion acts a new root, this stimulates the growth of jawbone tissue. When we lose teeth, bone tissue tends to lose mass and density as the body stops sending doses to the jawbone after a tooth is lost. Over time, this could lead to the loss of additional teeth and an older appearance too. Not only do you avoid these complications, but the new tooth could last for decades, possibly a lifetime. In comparison, a traditional bridge needs replacement every 10 to 15 years on average, while a denture is usually replaced every 5 to 10. The greater stability also means the ability to once again eat your favorite foods and to smile with confidence. If you have implant dentures, you don’t need to be worried about slippage during meals or speech!
