Solutions for Missing Teeth
For one reason or another, people lose one or multiple teeth. We strongly recommend replacement, not only for function and aesthetics, but also to stabilize the jaw and bite.
There are several options for replacing teeth. One is to set a removable implant, something that goes in and out of the mouth, that's more of an internal procedure. There are other fixed options, like a bridge where two teeth are used to anchor a three-unit bridge or more.
We also have implants that are a tooth or set of teeth that will replace the missing ones. Implants can sometimes be placed after a tooth is removed, and other times we have to wait for the area to heal before we can set the implant.
When putting in the implant, is one of the simplest procedures if it's done correctly and with planning and care. Once the implant is placed, the bone around the area is allowed to heal, and when that happens, the bone integrates with the implant and actually fuses with it. So the implant becomes part of you, and it becomes one of the strongest teeth in your mouth. But that takes about two to three months after the implant integrates, then we go ahead and place the crown on top.
Dental implants are a permanent and appealing solution to replace missing or extracted teeth. Dr. Muradian offers from a single dental implant to multiple implant, bridge or a fixed denture implant.
Advantages of dental implants
Dental implants offer greater comfort, durability and look way more natural than bridges or dentures. Here are some of the advantages of dental implants:
- They are permanent and durable (they can last up to 10 years)
- They look extremely natural
- They are the safest option because they are attached to the bone and not to other teeth.
- They do not damage adjacent teeth
- They help to preserve the bone
- They are affordable
Teeth perform multiple functions. They help us in chewing, speaking, supporting our facial muscles and give us confidence in smiling. When a tooth is lost adjacent teeth tend to migrate from their proper positions, creating misalignment of teeth...
