There are people who observed oral health care practices since infancy up until their teeth are fully developed and matured. However, despite all these, it is still possible for them to lose a tooth or two. Although dentistry has been continually evolving over the years to provide outstanding oral health care, people still experience missing teeth. It goes out especially to those who do not observe proper dental hygiene at home and ignore professional attention.Do know that leaving lost teeth unattended can worsen the matter. It can cause the teeth near the site to shift in an attempt to fill in the gaps. This results to misalignments and malocclusions that can lead to problems that would require long treatment times to correct. Fortunately, besides the dental procedures that are performed to keep the teeth healthy, there are now various means to restore lost teeth. From dentures to bridges, and now an even better alternative in the form of dental implants!
Like other restorative procedures, it aims to replace teeth that are lost but on a different level. For example, dentures and bridges only restore the visible portion of the lost structures then depends on the adjacent teeth for support. Dental implants, on the other hand, replaces both the crowns of the teeth and its supporting structures on the jaws which are the roots.Another reason that sets dental implants apart from other available options is its ability to fuse with the jawbone, a process referred to as osseointegration. It is a fortunate side effect of the procedure since it promotes the growth of the jaw as a result. The fusion of the jaw and the implant post creates a strong and stable foundation for the teeth replacements. It allows patients to use their new teeth for eating, talking, and smiling without any worries.It is ideal for people who need single, multiple, and even entire teeth replacement. Depending on the needs of the patient, dental crowns, bridges, and dentures will be fabricated to resemble any remaining teeth or natural teeth in general. It is to make sure that the restoration would both look and feel as natural as possible for favorable outcomes.At Village Dental, we believe in the potential of dental implants in giving smiles a second chance, so we encourage those who have missing teeth to take advantage of this dental innovation.
