As soon as you lose a tooth, the basic structure of your mouth begins to change. The jawbone beneath the lost tooth will start to deteriorate and your existing teeth will shift out of place. If left untreated for a longer period of time, missing teeth can cause the structure of your face to change as well. The more missing teeth you have, the faster these changes occur. Replacing lost teeth with dental implants as soon as possible will provide facial and jaw support that cannot be matched by removable dentures or traditional bridges.
Day-to-day activities such as chewing, biting, eating, and speaking are much more difficult without a full set of teeth, particularly if you wear removable dentures. By placing dental implants to create a complete smile, Dr. Ajmo can help you restore full function to your mouth.
The gaps left when teeth are extracted or lost can harbor disease and decay-causing bacteria. Because the gaps can be difficult to clean, plaque can build up more quickly. If left untreated, this buildup can lead to gingivitis, gum disease, tooth decay, infection, and even further tooth loss.
The exposed gum can be damaged by sharp foods, causing unnecessary pain or sores. When you speak with Dr. Ajmo about the benefits of dental implants, he will explain how much easier it will be to maintain your oral health after the procedure. Brushing and flossing will keep your smile clean, as will biannual visits to PGA Dentistry for professional cleanings and check-ups.
Dr. Ajmo is dedicated to providing care that meets both your restorative and cosmetic expectations. A dental implant procedure, although restorative in nature, should not be completed without aesthetic goals in mind. After all, we want you to walk out of our office with higher confidence in your smile and yourself. Living without a complete set of teeth can make smiling, laughing, and speaking uncomfortable. Between the secure comfort of having strong, stable teeth and the dazzling, natural appearance of our tooth-colored restorations, your new smile will conveniently give you the self-assurance you need to conquer whatever comes your way.
The Osseointegration Advantage
Dental implants are also one of the most secure tooth replacement options out there. Unlike dentures or dental bridges that can be shaken loose during eating or talking, you’ll never have to worry about your dental implant becoming loose or falling out. This is done through a process called osseointegration – the process of bonding the implant to the jawbone, creating a firm foundation for the ceramic or porcelain tooth that will be capped on top.
Osseointegration also has another benefit – strengthening the once weakened bone and gums underneath. When a tooth goes missing, it’s difficult for the bone to heal again with the gap left behind. If left untreated, this gap could cause further damage, leading to facial collapse and a sunken appearance. Your surrounding teeth could also shift around, leading to a reduced bite pressure or even pain, and eating or talking will feel stressful. After the implant is embedded, the gums are also reformed around the implant and heal around it as though it were a natural tooth.
