Did you know that more than 178 million people in the US living today are missing at least one tooth? That’s why we’d like to talk to you about dental implants. Dental implants are tooth roots surgically inserted into your mouth to support restoration of your missing tooth. Not only can an implant repair your smile, it can be critical in preventing bone loss in your jaw. Jaw bones are stimulated by dental implants to maintain facial features better. Perhaps the best benefit of these implants is that they may be placed in your mouth by a periodontist in as quickly as an hour.
Walding and Associates know that people with missing teeth can feel very self-conscious when talking or smiling. Missing teeth may cause bite irregularities which can also affect eating habits. Dental implants give the mouth the strength and stability needed to smile and eat with confidence. Once in place, implants can be supported by permanently-cemented crowns or bridges. Some other reasons to have a dental implant placed by our periodontist includes:
There’s a variety of reasons that teeth are lost. First if you lose a tooth because of an accident, come to one of our clinics as soon as possible, so our emergency dentist can help you. Teeth can also be lost due to gum disease, extensive tooth decay, mouth trauma, too much wear and tear, failure of a root canal and congenital defects. With proper care, dental implantation can last a lifetime and boast a success rate of up to 98%. Have a discussion with your periodontist to see whether or not you might be an ideal implant candidate.
