Dental Implants: An Advanced Option for Missing Teeth
Whatever the cause, missing teeth can create a host of problems. Self-esteem often suffers, and you may experience limited dietary options. Your oral health is at risk as well. If you don’t replace a lost tooth, you could lose up to 20 percent of adjacent teeth in the next four to eight years. Dental implants, which are small metal posts, can renew the appearance and vibrancy of your smile.
The Modern Approach
Unlike a traditional partial, denture, or bridge, dental implants are artificial tooth roots that a trained specialist surgically places in the jawbone. Dr. Gillespie can then attach a permanent crown to each post; the resulting restorations will look and feel just like the real thing. We can also secure your prosthetic with dental implants, which improves stability.
Why Choose Implants?
If you want to live life without worrying about missing teeth or temporary replacements, dental implants will give you the freedom to do just that. Patients can say good-bye to messy denture creams and embarrassing slippage. Dental implants offer solid, attractive replacement teeth, and with proper care, implants have a 95 to 98 percent success rate. You can once again chew, speak, and smile with confidence.
