Are you missing a tooth or several teeth?

Do you often find yourself hiding your smile because of gaps between your natural teeth? For a permanent and natural looking solution for missing teeth, choose dental implants. The dentist can use dental implants in a variety of ways to restore your smile. Even if you are missing single tooth or a whole arch of teeth due to periodontal disease.

Dental implants can replace one tooth or several teeth. The dentist can also use them to secure dental bridges and dentures for multiple consecutive missing teeth, arches of teeth, or sets of teeth.

Why Replace Missing Teeth?

If the gap left by missing teeth is not replaced soon enough, several problems may occur. These problems can include:

  • Crooked Teeth
  • Shifting Teeth
  • Bone Loss
  • TMJ Disorders
  • Difficulty Eating
  • Speech Issues
  • Bite Misalignment
  • Facial Sagging

Dental implants provide a solid foundation for new teeth and can resolve oral health and aesthetic problems that may already occur. A full set of teeth can prevent these problems and future oral health difficulties from ever happening.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants also provide multiple benefits to patients. Dental implants:

  • Look and feel like a natural tooth
  • Provide long lasting results
  • Prevent bone loss
  • Are easy to maintain

This treatment option is safe for adjacent natural teeth. Natural teeth may shift and crowd into the spaces left by missing teeth. Tooth crowding can make it difficult to clean teeth and may result in plaque buildup.

Treatment with Affordable Dental Implants

Dr. Drew Shulman will conduct a complete exam before inserting a dental implant. This is done to ensure that your bone tissue is strong enough for the dental implant or implants. He will also discuss your budget and goals with you before treatment. Dr. Shulman will also determine whether conventional or mini dental implants are the right choice for you.

Conventional dental implants consist of a titanium post which is secured to the jaw. After a healing period of 3 to 6 months, an abutment and dental crown are attached to the implant.

Mini dental implants are also a great option for patients who cannot receive conventional dental implants because of bone tissue or insufficient bone density. Ranging from 1.8 to 3.3 mm in diameter, mini implants are smaller than regular implants which are 3.4 to 5.8 mm wide. Unlike the three piece structure, a mini implant is a two piece structure which can usually be installed in one visit.

How Do I Care for My Dental Implants?

Dental implants require the same care as natural teeth. Brush and floss your teeth and implants daily. We suggest that you also schedule regular dental checkups and professional cleanings to keep your oral health on track. The gum tissues surrounding implants can still become infected. With proper care, your dental implants should last a lifetime.
