It’s important to replace missing teeth
Smile gaps cause far-reaching physical and emotional issues such as :
- jaw and gum recession because the natural biting and chewing forces which exercise the bone and keep it strong are absent
- drifting of teeth surrounding the gap, compromising strength and alignment
- diminished self-esteem and confidence
So, to retain optimal oral, physical and emotional well-being, tooth replacement is a priority.
Implant dentists offer the finest option in missing teeth replacement
Traditional partial and full dentures and fixed bridgework have long been the treatment of choice to restore form, function and appearance to smiles. None of these choices, however, maintains the health and integrity of the jaw bone. Bone recedes very quickly once a tooth is removed. In addition, full dentures carry their own problems: slippage, need to refit or replace, and speech and eating issues. Bridgework requires grinding down of teeth on either side of the bridge so it can be supported by porcelain crowns.
On the other hand, dental implants, singly, in multiples or as anchors for fixed or removable dentures, actually strengthen the jaw bone. Made from titanium, dental implants are screwed directly into the jaw through a comfortable in-office surgical procedure. The top of the implant protrudes through the gum and remains uncovered for some weeks to allow bone and soft tissues to heal.
That surgery creates a solid foundation for the new tooth. Beyond that, bone cells of the jaw are actually attracted to and integrate with the implant. This natural and almost miraculous process is called osseointegration, and it is the reason why patients say their implants feel like their real teeth.
After the healing period, the West Orange dental implant dentist affixes a metal abutment or post to the implant. This abutment accepts a beautiful and natural-looking porcelain crown that precisely fits the empty space and bites exactly with its neighbors on the opposite jaw bone. Additionally, implant dentists use these titanium devices to support fixed bridgework or full arches of fixed or removable dentures.
