Patients who have experienced tooth loss know how disruptive it can be, and how much it can diminish quality of life. Whether it’s just one tooth or a group, tooth loss can make it difficult to eat comfortably and speak clearly. Fortunately, Dr. Brian Chiffer at Nayaug Family Dental offers dental implant services that allow you to feel like yourself again.
The procedure offers a fixed solution to missing teeth — the implants consist of a small metal post and a natural-looking replacement tooth. Depending on the health of your jawbone and gums, as well as your particular needs, your dentist or oral surgeon will find the most appropriate implant method and configuration.
The dental implant restoration process starts with a consultation and set of X-rays so your dentist can get a complete picture of your mouth. This will help them determine which implant method is best for you. Following the consultation, your dentist will surgically implant the necessary number of titanium posts in your jaw. Some patients are able to receive their replacement teeth during the same procedure, but others may need to wait longer for the bone surrounding the implant to successfully heal. Your dentist will advise you as to which approach is right for you.
How does dental implant restoration help improve oral health? The replacement teeth close gaps in your mouth to discourage future tooth loss or movement. You may also be surprised to learn that the implant process can stimulate bone growth, protecting your natural teeth. Dental implants also have an important cosmetic benefit; a full mouth of teeth allows you to retain your natural face shape and smile for years to come. Best of all, you will be able to talk and eat without feeling self-conscious about your teeth.
