Should I choose a dental implant to replace my missing teeth?
Dental implants look, feel and function like your natural teeth. Dental implants have quickly become the “gold standard” for replacing missing teeth for their long-term aesthetic and oral health benefits. Dental implants are the most natural solution for replacing missing teeth and can be used individually to replace single teeth or to secure a bridge or denture.
Dental implants have over a 95% success rate.
Dental implants are so successful because they are designed to mimic a natural human tooth. The dental implant post is surgically implanted into the bone structure and fuses creating a lasting bond. The implanted post serves as a replacement for the lost tooth root which helps add stability to the bone tissue and secures the alignment of the bite.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Having missing teeth can have a negative impact on your oral health and your self-esteem. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants or an implant-supported restoration can help restore your natural looking smile. Dr. Gil designs custom crowns, bridges, and dentures. All dental restorations are made of highly durable, natural-looking material. The restoration will be fabricated to match the color and shape of your smile. Dr. Gil pays special attention to enhancing your natural facial structure.
Just one missing tooth can compromise the function of your bite and stability of your jaw. Left untreated, missing teeth lead to bone loss and even allows teeth to shift compromising bite alignment. Over time patients often experience facial sagging that creates premature aging of the face.
The implant post is made from biocompatible titanium that fuses to the bone and promotes continued tissue growth and bite stability. Dental implants are designed to support the natural smile and allow for the nearly full functional use of the bite without fear of slippage.
Improved Oral Health
Did you know that even one missing tooth can create a domino effect of secondary health conditions? Missing teeth are associated with many different oral and systemic health conditions. Longterm missing teeth increase the risk of gum disease, tooth decay, gum recession, and inflammation. Dental implants decrease the risk of associated dental and systemic concern. Implants help promote improved overall oral wellness and encourage long term oral health.
