Do You Believe in Miracles?
You may think that dentistry and miracles don’t go together, but for people who struggle with certain dental conditions, the proper treatment can feel like a miracle. For patients who have missing teeth or a hard time eating because of poor oral health, when we treat them and improve their health, it can have a huge impact on their quality of life.
One of the most highly beneficial treatments is the dental implant. Dental implants provide a wide variety of viable solutions to replace missing teeth, but also to support and stabilize other dentistry such as dental bridges and dentures.
Single tooth dental implants – the benefit of using a dental implant to replace a single missing tooth is that dental implants most closely resemble your natural teeth both in function and in appearance. That means that your dental implant can help to prevent bone resorption, common with tooth loss, as well as providing an aesthetically attractive replacement for your natural tooth.
Implant-supported bridges – If you have multiple missing teeth, you can have the stability and bone-saving benefits of dental implants by placing a few strategically located implants to support your dental bridge. That way, you can replace multiple teeth without a partial denture.
Implant-supported dentures – for patients missing all of their teeth on their upper or lower arch, you may understand the difficulty with finding dentures that fit and stay in place. Having loose dentures is embarrassing and creates stress when it comes to eating and talking. For patients that need extra help keeping their dentures in place, we can place a few implants on your arch to support your dentures.
Even if you have suffered from some bone loss already, addressing it now may help retain your bone and facial structure in the future. It’s never too late to learn your options and you never know, we may just have the miracle you’re looking for.
