Need a long term solution? Try dental implants!
Dental accidents happen. Whether its falling off a bicycle and cracking a tooth, or an important surgery that requires the removal of teeth, there are many different scenarios where one would find themselves needing cosmetic dentistry. Studies show that 69% of adults from ages 34-55 have lost teeth to accidents or even gum disease and tooth infection.
Dental implants are the best solution for missing teeth because not only is it cosmetically pleasing to the eye, but it is also long term. Dental implants used to not exist twenty years ago; now it is a great option for cosmetic dentistry. A few benefits of dental implants include: 1) a natural look and feel 2) freedom to eat what you want 3) a resurge of confidence.
Various types of treatments specifically for dental implants:
- Single tooth replacement
- Several teeth
- All teeth
- Sinus Augmentation: This procedure raises the sinus floor and develops bone to place the dental implants.
- Ridge modification: the gum is lifted away, so the bone defect can be filled with bone to build up the ridge.
The dental implant procedure takes a total of about three dentist visits. This includes x-rays, oral examination, anesthesia and the procedure.
People of all ages can receive dental implants except for young children with underdeveloped teeth. Dental implants are especially good for anyone with damaged gums or poorly performed root canals.
Implants are made to last a lifetime. However, they need to be cared for just like regular teeth. Don’t discredit the power of brushing and flossing twice a day—even with implants!
