When you have suffered from tooth loss, this could lead to issues eating and speaking, and even an older appearance! But we can prevent these complications with dental implant placement, which we can handle in-house! In today’s blog, your Charles City, IA, dentist talks about how we secure your new dental implants.

The Risks of Your Missing Teeth

When you lose teeth, whether due to injury, decay or infection, or periodontitis, this means gaps that impact how you eat and speak. The gaps also increase the risk of misalignment, TMJ disorder, and even bruxism (teeth grinding). But the body will also suspend the flow of calcium and phosphorus to the jaw around the missing roots, which causes the bone structure to weaken with time, causing further tooth loss and even a prematurely aged appearance! To avoid these risks, you need to seek tooth replacement with dental implants, which not only fill the gap in your smile but also stimulates the growth of jawbone structure to preserve your smile and allow your new teeth to last decades!

Placing Your Dental Implants

To begin, our team will conduct a detailed dental examination of your smile so we can make sure your jaw is strong enough to support the new posts, otherwise you may need grafting or a sinus lift. We then choose the best angles, positions, and depth to insert the implant posts, which are made from titanium, a biocompatible material. We insert these into the jaw, where they bond with the bone structure and are accepted as natural roots. This means the chance for a lifetime of full smiles!

Completing Your New Teeth

When the placement area heals, we will add abutments to the post that extend above the gum line. For an individual missing tooth, we attach custom crowns to the posts to provide structure that looks natural and handles daily bite forces with ease. If you have advanced tooth loss, we could use multiple posts to support a bridge or even a full set of fixed dentures, which never slip and stay in place for decades to come. The entire process, from the first exam to attaching your restoration or prosthetic, is done in-house, no need to go to other practices or offices. You enjoy tooth replacement that is durable, lifelike, and long-lasting.

If you have any questions about dental implants or if you have missing teeth you want to see replacement, then contact our team today. We can schedule a consultation to examine your smile and select the most appropriate tooth replacement option for you, so you can smile with confidence again and avoid complications related to untreated tooth loss.
