You may be familiar with the way missing teeth change your appearance. The sunken look that comes with gaps in a smile prematurely ages you. In addition to these changes to your appearance, missing teeth also have a tremendously negative impact on your health.
How Dental Implants Transform Your Mouth
Gaps in your mouth are prone to decay, affecting both remaining teeth and gums. The loss of one tooth can eventually lead to the loss of more. When teeth are missing, the roots are no longer stimulating the jawbone; left untreated, this can lead to bone loss in your jaw.
Dental implants have revolutionized tooth replacement because they truly replace the entire tooth. The structure of a dental implant can prevent bone and tooth loss because it continues to stimulate the jawbone— in addition to replacing the teeth you need to smile, speak, and chew properly.
Considering Dental Implant Surgery
If dental implants may help you meet your vision of a complete smile, we will begin an in-depth consultation to help you arrive at a decision. Because the dental implant process involves oral surgery, we will carefully evaluate your overall health to ensure the surgery will be beneficial for you.
Once we have come to the consensus that dental implants are the best solution for your tooth replacement, we can perform the entire process in our office over a series of appointments.
Placement and Restoration
Crafted with high-grade titanium, implant posts are carefully placed in your jawbone, just below your gum line. Titanium is biocompatible, so the implants fuse with your jaw in a process called osseointegration. These posts stimulate the jawbone and provide a secure anchor for your replacement teeth.
We will then fit you with new restorations that replace your missing teeth. These restorations will be anchored in your mouth by the dental implants. Depending on your unique needs, these restorations can be crowns to replace singular teeth, a dental bridge to replace multiple teeth, or even a set of dentures for more extensive tooth loss.
From placement to restoration, Coulon Watts will transform your smile as well as your overall health.
