It can be more difficult to eat without having all your functioning teeth. Sometimes, when you eat chips they can stab your gums when your tooth would have normally protected them. Not to mention, you feel completely embarrassed missing one of your front teeth. If you’ve lost a tooth or on the verge of losing teeth, you must face several issues like these plus your jawbone can begin to deteriorate before its time.
There are several ways that you can replace teeth at DMC Dental, but dental implants in Fayetteville is one of the most popular and recommended procedures. There’s still hope! You can totally save your smile with a simple three-piece restoration (dental implant post, abutment, and attached dental prosthetic). So, why should you consider getting a dental implant from Dr. Don M. Chaney?
1. Your jawbone will stay healthy thanks to the dental implant post.
You may think the only important part of your teeth is the visible portion. There is actually a very critical part of your tooth that is buried within your jawbone and protected by the visible portion of your tooth: the root. Your tooth root is full of nerve endings and stimulates blood flow in your jawbone when you chew. This keeps your jawbone healthy and strong.
When you lose a tooth, you also lose your vital tooth root and your jawbone can deteriorate, causing a sunken, aged facial appearance. Dental implants are equipped with a biocompatible titanium tooth root that natural fuses with your jawbone, continuing to keep your jawbone healthy.
2. The dental implant will hold the rest of your smile in place.
Your teeth work together and support each other. When one goes missing, they start to shift and change positions. Not only will your smile look crooked, but you can develop dental problems from a misaligned bite. To avoid TMJ disorder, overlapping teeth, gapped teeth, or crooked teeth you can have a dental implant installed. This will ensure all your teeth stay put in their correct places.
3. You don’t have to change your dental routine to keep your smile healthy.
Some dental treatments require particular care after being installed. Typically, there are other great tooth replacement options that mimic your natural teeth—up until it comes to maintenance. With dental implants, you can expect a long lifespan of at least 20 years with normal upkeep. All you have to do is brush twice a day, floss regularly, and visit Dr. Chaney for normal checkups and professional cleanings.
4. You will reap aesthetic benefits.
There are many replacement options that include unsightly, embarrassing metal. Dental fillings and other similar restorations can make your teeth look unnatural. Instead of having a restoration that stands out when you speak and eat, you can have a tooth replacement that is completely camouflaged amongst your natural teeth. Our dental office will base the color of your dental prosthetic against your permanent teeth, making it impossible to tell that you’ve had dental work done.
