Replacing a Single Tooth with a Dental Implant
Trauma, decay and gum disease can all cause tooth loss. However with advanced dentistry Dr. Nugent can replace you missing tooth with a dental implant. Implant represent the absolute best way to replace missing teeth without having all the disadvantages of old-fashioned bridges and dentures. Dental implants do not damage the adjacent teeth. No grinding down and crowing healthy natural teeth for bridges and no ugly metal clasps for removable partial dentures.
When a tooth is lost, the bone that supported that tooth is no longer stimulate. The bone starts to fade away. With dental implants the surrounding bone is stimulated with each bite. This preserves the jaw bone levels and density. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that maintains a strong and healthy jaw bone.
Dental bridges fuse teeth together. They are difficult to clean and one must use special floss to try to get under the bridge. Removable dentures cover the reaming teeth and trap food. Both bridges and partial dentures can contribute to decay. Whereas, dental implants are brushed and flossed just like normal teeth.
Another key benefit of dental implants is that they are the longest lasting dental procedure. Implants are designed to last a lifetime. Dental implants can never get decay and will never need a root canal. Bridges fail with great predictability. Over half of all bridges do not even last 13 years. Because bridges are difficult to clean they often get decay on the support teeth. This creates a huge financial and dental problem. Also, due to the aggressive cutting down of the teeth for the bridge the support teeth often need root canals. These root canals can fail causing extremely difficult problems. Removable dentures can put excessive forces on the remaining teeth causing them to become loose and fall out. Then a new partial will have to be made. In conjunction with, the plastic rubbing on the gum tissue accelerates bone and gum tissue loss. Now the partial denture no longer fits and a new partial will have to be made.
Replacing Multiple Teeth with Implant Bridges
Over the years teeth can get cavities, worn down, cracked, and eventually lost.
When multiple teeth are lost dental implants can be used to replace the missing teeth. For cost saving measures dental implant brides can be used. This is advantageous cost wise to the patient because multiple teeth can be replaced with as little as two implants. Dental implant bridges are permanently fixed in the mouth as opposed to removable partial dentures. The implants replace the root of the missing tooth. The implant preserves the jaw bone and prevents bone deterioration. A dental implant bridge will never need a root canal and will never get decay.
