If you have a mouth gap, it can be tempting to ignore it and go on with your life. However, this will birth numerous health complications. A lost tooth alters your physical appearance, affects the structural integrity of your jaw, and impedes your oral function. As you can see, a lost tooth can get more complicated than you initially thought, and the more you delay the treatment, the more complicated it gets.
If you are a resident of Rochester, Michigan, and looking for a permanent fix for your missing teeth, implant-based restorations from John L. Aurelia, D.D.S., PLLC are a perfect solution for your lost teeth.
A teeth implant is a titanium or zirconium screw surgically inserted on the jawbone to replace a missing tooth. After a few months, the surrounding bones fuse with the implant post, forming a secure anchorage for crowns, bridges, or dentures.
Whether you are missing one tooth or several teeth, dental implants are the go-to restorative treatment because of the following benefits.
As you know, bone loss is bound to happen following tooth loss. Your bones require constant stimulation by teeth to remain healthy. When you lose a tooth, your bone begins to resorb, resulting in a sunken-in appearance. A dental implant fuses with the bone, stimulating the jawbone just like the natural teeth.
No other tooth replacement can offer this benefit.
Maintaining your implants is no different from caring for your natural teeth. Brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and mouth rinsing is enough to make your implants last for a lifetime!
Once Dr. John Aurelia or Dr. Dina Khoury installs a teeth implant, it acts and looks like a natural tooth. After fusing with the bone, an implant will feel natural and indistinguishable from your other natural teeth.
Dental implants prevent adjacent teeth from shifting and don’t interfere with the health of the nearby teeth. With bridges, for instance, adjacent teeth have to be reshaped to anchor the bridgework. However, dental implants are stand-alone tooth replacements that don’t rely on the support of neighboring teeth.
