Trauma, injury, accidents and diseases are just some of the reasons that can lead to missing teeth. While missing teeth can no doubt affect the appearance of an individual, they may also lead to systematic dental problems. Dental implants are an effective solution for replacing missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures. Dental implants bear the advantage of being strongly rooted to the teeth. They prevent the dental teeth structure from falling out at inappropriate times as in the case of false teeth. Our professionals at The Rowlett Dentist are qualified in the various phases involved with implant dentistry, starting from the implant placement to the placement of teeth.
Dental implants are titanium posts that act as a foundation for the placement of replacement teeth. Once placed in the bone structure of the missing teeth, they naturally bond with the bones. Artificial teeth are then attached on the dental implants so you can resume speaking and eating habits without any hassles, just as with healthy natural teeth.
Why Dental Implants are often the best solution
While fixed bridges and removable dentures have some advantages, they are not always the best solution. Removable dentures may slip or cause embarrassing clicking sounds while eating or speaking. Fixed bridges require the partial cutting of adjacent teeth, and removable dentures may lead to bone loss in the area where the tooth or teeth are missing. Periodontal (gum) disease and other factors often result in early failure of the bridges. Bridges or removable dentures usually need to be replaced every 7 to 15 years, compared to an average 25-year life span for dental implants.
