Tooth loss is undoubtedly an unwelcome, and, sometimes even scary, problem to deal with. Our Cheney restorative dentists are here to help our patients through the post-tooth-loss treatment process. We offer a number of convenient and effective treatment options to help you get your smile back on track.
The most state-of-the-art restorative treatment available in dentistry today is the dental implant. Dental implants aim to mimic the natural structure of a real tooth, and, to that end, every dental implant has a titanium screw that serves as a replacement root.
Patients choose dental implants over other treatment options for a wide variety of reasons, including:
- Ease of use: once your implant is inserted, it will stay in place permanently. You’ll be able to eat and drink normally, as well as care for your replacement tooth using normal oral hygiene measures.
- Personalization: our team customizes dental implants to look natural for the patient, and to function optimally within the larger dental structure. This means that the dental crown of your replacement root will be shaped, sized, and shaded to look natural for you, as an individual.
- Oral health benefits: it is very common for patients who experience tooth loss to deal with additional dental health problems as a result, including oral tissue deterioration and changes in dental alignment. Dental implant technology helps to minimize your risk of secondary issues, because the titanium of the implant root is able to actually bond with the patient’s jawbone tissue. This process, called osseointegration, creates a stable foundation for the rest of the replacement tooth, and supports the adjacent tissues and teeth.
If you are one of the many people dealing with tooth loss, our Cheney dental implant dentists encourage you to seek treatment as promptly as possible, as this can make a huge difference in your oral health prognosis.
