When Are Dental Implants Necessary?
Millions of Americans have seriously damaged or missing teeth from accidents, poor hygiene, gum disease, and other factors. Aside from affecting your appearance, missing or damaged teeth can be painful and may damage bite alignment and oral health if left untreated. Dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone and serve as a permanent solution to restore health, beauty, and functionality to your mouth.
Difference Between Implants and Dentures
Dentures are another possible solution to damaged or missing teeth and may be the right option for many patients. Dentures need to be modified or replaced occasionally whereas dental implants are permanent, and rarely need replacement even over the course of a lifetime. Implants may also be used to stabilize dentures in some situations.
Dental Implants and Bone Loss
In some cases, severe tooth damage or gum disease can lead to bone loss and further complications. Our periodontist can provide restoration procedures such as bone grafts and tissue regeneration along with implants for a complete solution to serious dental issues.
