Getting a tooth implant is now one of the most viable ways to restore missing teeth and may be preferred over partial dentures or fixed bridges. Traditional treatments can contribute to jaw bone loss or negatively impact natural teeth. Dental implants are placed directly into the jaw bone and continue to be a successful long term replacement option for missing teeth.
Tooth Loss and Treatment with a Tooth Implant
Statistics show that almost three-quarters of adults in the United States between the ages of 35 and 44 have at least one missing tooth from tooth decay or gum disease. By the time these adults reach their mid-70s, some have lost all of their natural teeth. These are startling statistics but fortunately, there are effective options for replacing missing teeth. Recent advances in dental technology provide an alternative to traditional tooth replacement methods such as fixed bridges and dentures. Removable dentures can contribute to bone loss and affect the facial structure. Fixed bridges require grinding down adjacent teeth, which can make the tooth structure more susceptible to damage.
A tooth implant does not run the risk of slipping and making clicking sounds as dentures often do. They are difficult to distinguish from your real teeth because the crown is designed to look just like natural tooth structure. Since implants also stimulate the jaw bone, you do not run the risk of jaw bone deterioration.
