Dental Implants – A Stable Solution for Missing Teeth
Tooth loss does not mean the end of enjoying your favorite foods or feeling confident about the way you look. Each patient is different when it comes to the tooth replacement option that will work best. That is why at A Glowing Smile Dental Care, we offer a number of choices to preplace missing teeth including dentures, bridges, and dental implants.
Oftentimes, patients are curious about the most stable solution – the one that is most like having their tooth back again. Dental implants provide patients with the most reliable and stable way to fill the gaps in their smiles. With dental implants, you can count on reliability and dentistry that can last for decades – even a lifetime.
How Dental Implants Work
The main reason dental implants are so reliable is that the dental implant post, designed to replace your tooth’s root, actually integrates with your jawbone, becoming part of your body. Because of this integration, your dental implants can actually slow down or even prevent the bone loss that commonly occurs when you lose teeth.
As long as you properly care for your dental implant, it should not require more than an occasional adjustment over the years to stay completely functional.
Your dental crown, made of durable ceramic, can withstand normal day-to-day wear. Using common sense when you eat, especially hard foods, and avoiding chewing on things like ice will help keep your dental crown functional and intact. If your crown does sustain damage, contact us right away.
Dental Implant Versatility
For patients wishing to combine the benefits of dental implants with other dentistry, such as fixed dental bridges or dentures, dental implants can add stability. This eliminates slippage or mobility of dentures and allows dental bridges to replace more missing teeth at once, potentially avoiding the need for a partial denture.
