In the past, the common answer to any missing teeth issues was dentures or bridges. However, in recent years the solution to missing teeth issues has also included another restorative dentistry option as well. Dental implants offer a 95% success rate and are backed by 50 years of clinical research. If you’re considering which solution is right for your missing teeth, we’d like to take time to answer some of the most common dental implant questions.
Why should I replace a missing tooth if no one can see it?
Getting a dental implant is not just about aesthetics. Missing teeth that do not affect the look of your smile can have a large impact on the function of your mouth and teeth. Missing teeth can cause your remaining teeth to shift. Bone loss can occur around your missing teeth. Loss of teeth and bone can make your face sag and appear older.
Why are implants considered such a solid solution?
Implants are surgically placed in your jawbone. Over time your bone grows around it and holds it securely in place. A custom-made tooth is made to be placed directly on top of the implant. The implant is firmly secured with no moving or removal ever necessary for cleaning or eating.
Am I a good candidate for an implant?
Dr. Paes and his team at Town Center Dental will help determine if you’re a good candidate for an implant. We always take into consideration things such as your overall health, age, and adequate bone availability.
