What are the Risks of Missing Teeth?
Missing teeth cause more than just a gap in your smile, and can open the door for other serious health problems including:
- Jawbone deterioration
- Altered bite tension
- Shifting teeth/tooth pain
Fortunately, by opting to get dental implants you can help prevent these issues. But what, exactly, is a dental implant?
What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. They provide a strong foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth, also known as crowns, which are made to match your natural teeth.
During the procedure, small titanium posts are inserted into your jawbone to support your personalized crowns. The crown that is placed onto the implant provides you with a new, permanent tooth that functions and feels like a natural part of your smile.
When you are missing teeth, Dr. Esler uses dental implants for various reasons, including:
- To improve the appearance of your smile
- To improve your speaking and eating abilities
- To eliminate discomfort
- To increase your self esteem
- To improve your oral health
With long-lasting results, dental implants offer a secure and reliable solution for restoring and preserving your smile in a variety of situations. However, before choosing this restorative procedure, it's important to know if implants are the right choice for you.
Are Dental Implants Right for You?
If your smile feels incomplete because you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants might be right for you. However, there are specific qualifications you must meet in order to receive this beneficial procedure, including:
- Have healthy gums
- Be in good general health
- Have enough jawbone mass to hold the implants
Although many other tooth replacement methods, like dentures or bridges, can address issues associated with missing teeth, dental implants are the only solution that can prevent changes to the structure of your jaw, thus providing longer-lasting oral support.
