If you have one or more missing teeth, you may feel embarrassed about your smile. You know that whether you are in a social or professional setting, the people around you can see that gap. In fact, some are often reluctant to join friends and family because they may too self-conscious about the condition of their smile.
Oral Health Risks from Tooth Loss
Your oral heath can also be affected by those unfortunate smile gaps. Did you know that if you have missing teeth then you run a higher risk of gum disease? Worse, your other teeth can shift, loosen, or need to be extracted. Finally, tooth loss can adversely affect your overall health, too. The same bacteria that cause gum disease have also been linked to several illnesses and harmful health conditions such as heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, and pregnancy complications.
Benefits of Dental Implants
With dental implants in Cocoa, FL from Dr. Dieter Burr, you have an excellent solution for one missing tooth or a few missing teeth. A dental implant begins with a post that’s placed into your jawbone. An implant can be used to replace a single tooth, in which case it’s topped with a beautiful porcelain crown. Or implants also can stabilize crown and bridges, removable partials, and even full dentures for the upper and lower arches.
There are plenty of advantages for choosing dental implants for your tooth-replacement needs. A few of these benefits include:
- Dental implants have a 96% success rate!
- The posts are biocompatible, and act like real tooth roots. The bone fuses around the post, keeping your jaw strong and healthy.
- Implants capped with porcelain crowns look as natural and beautiful as real teeth. You’ll look and feel more attractive and confident.
- Implant retained dentures offer unmatched security. You’ll never need to worry again about dentures that slip or click.
- Dental implants are very durable and function as well as real teeth. Eat whatever you like. Your speech will be improved, too.
The Dental Implant Procedure
Receiving your dental implants requires procedures that span over several months. The process begins by surgically placing the implant in the bone beneath the socket of your missing tooth. As you heal over the next several months, something amazing happens between the implant and surrounding bone tissue—they begin to fuse together.
The implant is made of the biocompatible metal titanium. As time passes, the implant becomes fully integrated with the bone. This not only provides a firm anchor for your tooth restoration, but also prevents bone degeneration in your jaw. Without a tooth root to stimulate new bone growth, the jaw tends to change shape—not for the better. Bone loss can make your face appear more sunken and aged.
Once the integration process is completed, you’ll return to have your dentist in Cocoa attach your tooth restoration. A lifelike porcelain crown is fabricated for a single implant, a partial for a few missing teeth and a full denture if you are missing all of the teeth along either arch.
