The number one reason for adult tooth loss in the United States is due to severe, untreated gum disease. Missing teeth negatively affect your oral function, creating an improper bite that makes it difficult to chew, affects your temporomandibular joints, and contributes to the loosening of remaining teeth. Missing teeth can also contribute to the loss of your jawbone—and the softening of your facial structure.
Dental implants are an optimum solution for replacing missing teeth. Not only are the posts made from biocompatible materials, which simulate real tooth roots that the jawbone will fuse around, but they are durable, long-lasting, and natural-looking.
Dental implants offer several benefits:
- Looks natural
- Adds beauty
- Prevents chewing and slurring issues
- Renews overall oral health
- Keeps jawbone strong and intact
- Allows for a proper, balanced bite
- Boosts confidence
Dental implants can be topped with porcelain crowns, or used to anchor dental prostheses. We have more information about dental implants on our patient education page.
