Many patients at Joseph R. Nemeth DDS & Associate's periodontal office experience tremendous benefits following a dental implant procedure. Dental implants are often a more natural looking and permanent solution to other tooth replacement options.
Online PR News – 30-December-2013 –A smile is one of the first features people may notice about a person. A smile can convey confidence, happiness, and success. If someone has missing teeth, they know that their grin can often make them feel embarrassed or ashamed rather than having positive effects on their self-confidence.
The number of people who have lost a tooth, multiple teeth, or all of their teeth is very large. Tooth loss can occur for many reasons including injury, periodontal disease, mouth trauma, decay, etc.
“Most patients who have had dental implants feel that they can be life-changing.”
If someone who has lost teeth due to periodontal disease, they are certainly not alone. Some studies show that anywhere between 50 and 70 percent of adult Americans has some form of periodontal disease. When it is left untreated, it can gradually destroy the bone that supports the teeth and it could result in tooth loss.
For a person that has lost teeth (generally for any reason), dental implants can be a wonderful replacement option. Dental implants allow patients to enjoy the function, appearance and permanence that their natural teeth once provided. They can be used to replace a single tooth, a partial, a bridge, or full dentures.
A dental implant is a tiny titanium post that will replace the natural tooth root. It is designed in such a way that after it is placed in the mouth, it will begin to become securely attached to the patientís jaw bone. This can be pictured like the roots of a tree becoming firmly attached to the ground. It is very similar in that the tooth becomes securely attached to the mouth, therefore the implants are not to be taken in and out of the mouth like a partial or dentures would.
After the bone is healed around the implant, the final restorations are attached to the implant. These restorations are made utilizing procedures that are very similar to traditional crown, bridge, and denture dentistry but are held permanently in place with the implant.
Dental implant patients usually experience very little to no pain or discomfort during the procedure. Most patients who have had dental implants feel that they can be life-changing. These people often note that their implants look and feel so much like their real teeth that nobody, not even themselves, can tell a difference.
