treatment utilizing dental implants
you're missing a tooth or many teeth, you may find that there are other things
that are missing. You may wish for a natural smile and the ability to chew
enjoyable foods and speak clearly. You may feel self-conscious about the missing
teeth and changes in the mouth, or concerned as other teeth shift position with
time. Perhaps you have experienced a change in "Facial Aesthetics" or how
the mouth and face are changing in appearance, with an appearance of an older
individual. The effect of tooth loss varies from person to person and depends on
what exactly has been lost. When a tooth with its root is lost, the
bone around the tooth will gradually shrink or atrophy, and the remaining teeth
may shift and chewing will become more difficult with time, along with negative
facial changes. There are a number of ways to replace teeth. When a
single tooth is lost an implant and crown are the first choice for replacement.
When all teeth are lost the patient is forced to replace all teeth and gum
tissue with either complete dentures or with an implant supported prosthesis.
When all teeth are lost their replacement does not require replacement with an
implant per tooth, less implants are required.
