A dental implant is the most natural option for missing tooth replacement. Dental implants can be used to secure a dental crown, dental bridge, full denture or partial. Implant secured dental restorations support long term oral health by replacing more than just the crown, or visible portion of the tooth. The implanted post serves as a replacement for the lost tooth root, stabilizing the bone and structure of your jaw and the alignment of your bite.
Why choose dental implants to replace missing teeth?
Having missing teeth can have a negative impact on your daily life, oral health and be detrimental to your self esteem. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants or implant supported restorations provides beautiful, natural looking results. Dental implants are capped with custom designed dental restorations that look just like your natural teeth. Dr. Hoffert custom designs your crown, bridge or denture to match the color and shape of your smile with special attention to enhancing your natural facial structure.
Just one missing tooth can compromise the function of your bite. Missing teeth commonly lead to bone loss and allow adjacent teeth to shift, loosen, and even fall out. Implants secure the structure of the jaw bone by providing the support lost by missing tooth roots. The titanium material of the implant is specifically designed to fuse with the jaw bone creating a lasting and comfortable bond which actually promotes continued tissue growth.
Dental implants and implant secured restorations provide a more stable solution for replacing missing teeth. Patients do not have to worry about the discomfort or embarrassment of a denture that is slipping while eating or speaking or irritating the soft tissues of the gums.
Improved Oral Health
Missing teeth are associated with many different oral and systemic health conditions. Left untreated, missing teeth can lead to an increased risk of gum disease, tooth decay, gum recession, and inflammation. Dental implants act like natural teeth, helping to promote gum and bone health. Patients who choose dental implants to replace any number of missing teeth benefit from the improved stability of oral health and increased confidence in their smile. Patients can enjoy results that last for many years with routine visits to the dentist and a good oral hygiene routine.
