Dental Implant Restorations
When you have any missing teeth, it can cause serious damage to your mouth. It not only hurts the jaw where the tooth once was, but it can also hurt the remaining teeth. When even a single tooth is out of its normal place, the surrounding teeth can cave towards the open gap, plus the jaw bone begins to reabsorb itself. This is because your body believes that it no longer needs bone in that spot, since there is no tooth left there to hold in place. The best option to reverse all of these maladies is to use dental implants. Our team here at Matthew Wallengren, DDS will work with you to create the best possible structural and cosmetic outcome. Getting dental implants can give you back aspects of your life you may have been missing out on since losing those teeth. Take back what is rightfully yours, and consider the benefits that dental implants could bring to your life today.
Why Turn to Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the nearest things to real teeth that the field of dentistry has to offer. There is an implant placed into your jaw, which mimics the root of your natural tooth. Then, once that implant has healed, a fake permanent tooth is placed on top. This is able to be used just as your original tooth was used, and gives you the freedom to eat, speak, chew, and live like you never lost a tooth.
Dental implants are also a great way of restoring all numbers of teeth. You can replace a single missing tooth, a few missing teeth in numerous places in your mouth, a few missing teeth together, or an entire arch of missing teeth. Plus, if you want to use dental implants instead of dentures, you can do that, too. You can even use implants to support entire arches of dentures, as they are commonly used to hold dentures in place to give the most realistic performance and functionality to those who need it.
Dental Implants Offer Many Benefits
There are significant benefits to getting dental implants as well. They help you chew and speak like you did before you lost any teeth. Implants keep up the bone health in your jaw, because the stimulation your jaw gets when you chew is nearly identical to the stimulation your jaw gets when you ate before you lost any teeth. Plus, dental implants help prevent the sunken appearance that you get when you wear dentures, allowing you to look and feel younger when you wear implants.
For additional information about dental implants, and how they can restore your smile, contact us here at Matthew Wallengren, DDS. We can explain the dental implant procedure when you come in for a consultation, and we can explain which parts of the procedure we do here in the office, and which we would send you to a specialist for. We will then work with you to determine what things need to happen in order to ensure that your mouth is going to be healthy enough to go through the dental implant procedure, and heal properly afterwards.
