If you’re tired of dealing with missing teeth, then you should keep reading! It’s certainly no fun having to pick and choose what you eat – especially when you and your family are trying out a hot new restaurant in town.
It’s also no fun feeling embarrassed to show others your full smile because you know it has gaps in it. It’s time to put and end to a bland diet and hiding your smile behind your hand when you’re out in public.
With the power of dental implants, we have many teeth replacement options that will give you back a gorgeous smile, as well as one that’s fully functional. After the pros at Bell Dental Group get done with your smile, you’ll want to show it off everywhere you go. You’ll want to try all the restaurants you’ve had to avoid. You’ll want to prepare decadent meals full of crunchy, hearty vegetables, and eat thick, juicy steaks again.
Is your mouth watering yet?
Dental Implants Play an Important Role in Modern Dentistry
Teeth implants have been around for hundreds of years, but in the last few decades, implant technology has made leaps and bounds. Today, implants are small posts, usually made from medical-grade titanium, that we can insert into your jaw where a tooth was previously.
Over the course of a few months, the titanium implant will chemically bond with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration. That is a fancy term that basically means the bone accepts the implant and begins to grow around it.
Implant Restorations Mean a Better Quality of Life For You
After the implant and bone are fused and your jaw is fully healed, the restoration process begins. You have a variety of options for replacing your teeth at this point. We can secure a beautiful porcelain crown to an implant to replace a single tooth. Or if you have several missing teeth, an implant-supported bridge may be a good option.
We can even anchor a set of dentures to your new implants. However, these dentures won’t be anything like dentures you’ve worn before. The implants will give your new teeth more stability and more comfort than traditional dentures can offer you. They will stay firmly in place and you won’t ever have to worry about them slipping or sliding. Feel free to eat, talk, laugh, and sing without fear that your teeth could fly out and hit someone across the table!
But that’s not all that teeth implants offer you. They will also make your jawbone healthier and stronger. When you lose a tooth, the bone in that area will actually begin to deteriorate over time because there is no tooth root in it.
However, your sturdy new titanium implant will actually stimulate your jaw to make new bone material. There’s no difference between having a tooth in place and having an implant embedded in your jaw. Both scenarios work to keep your jawbone healthy.
