What are the benefits of the dental implants procedure for Shelby Township residents?

Missing teeth can be devastating to a patient’s smile. Those who have experienced the loss of natural teeth may find that they are extremely self-conscious about the way they look, and may lack the self-esteem and confidence that they once had. Additionally, the loss of natural teeth can cause the existing teeth to shift out of place and create gaps in the dental arch. When natural teeth are missing or extracted, it is important that patients seek a solution as soon as possible to avoid causing further problems with their teeth that may cost more in the long run to address.

Patients who need tooth restoration may consider a dental implant procedure. Shelby Township area residents can visit Dr. John L. Aurelia in Rochester Hills to learn more about the benefits that dental implants can provide. They are considered the “€œgold standard” in cosmetic dentistry, as they are highly successful and can last a lifetime.

However, not everyone is a viable candidate for dental implants. Dental implants require that a patient have sufficient bone structure for placement. This is because the strength of the dental implant is derived from the jawbone. If there is not enough bone, patients can consider bone grafting or an alternative treatment that may work better for their lifestyle and budget.

Dental implants are the preferred option when it comes to cosmetically restoring a smile after tooth loss. No other restoration is as strong and durable as a dental implant. Dental bridges are an alternative solution, but require healthy teeth to be reshaped and bridges will only last a decade or more with proper care. They will need to be replaced over the life of a patient. Partial dentures are removable and may be troublesome for many patients. Most patients want a permanent solution, so partial dentures are often only considered from an economic standpoint or as a temporary solution until the patient has made a decision on a permanent alternative.
