If you are suffering from tooth loss, it is in your best interest to find an effective tooth replacement option as soon as possible. Untreated tooth loss puts you at risk of suffering from a range of oral health issues—from jawbone deterioration to further tooth loss.
One of the most popular tooth replacement options in our Cheney dentist office is dental implant treatment. Dental implants are innovative, effective, and state-of-the-art. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of this treatment option.
Once your dental implant is put in place, it stays in your mouth 24/7. Dental implants are not removable by the patient. Due to the stability of the dental implant, you won’t have to worry about your replacement tooth moving around or coming loose as you go through your day.
2. Health Benefits
The dental implant is unique among replacement teeth, because this replacement tooth actually has a titanium root that extends into the patient’s jawbone. This titanium root bonds with the patient’s natural bone tissue; this helps to prevent the jawbone deterioration that commonly accompanies tooth loss. Your dental implant will also help to keep your natural teeth from shifting along your gum line.
Every aspect of the dental implant can be personalized to suit the individual patient. We’ll make sure that the size and shape of your implant looks natural for you, and works with the overall structure of your smile. Additionally, our team will shade your implant restoration so that it looks healthy and bright, while blending with your existing smile.
