The autumn season has come once again. Is your oral health in the condition you want it to be? If you are missing any teeth, or are scheduled for a tooth extraction, it is crucial that you have the missing gaps replaced immediately. One of the most highly effective treatments for tooth replacement therapies in dentistry today it’s a dental implant.
Dental implants are permanent tooth replacements that are attached directly to your jawbone. Over time, the bond between your jawbone and the implant will strengthen due to a natural process that is known as osseointegration. This means that the hold will become tighter the longer it occurs. Thanks to the durable hold that implants offer, no food restrictions are necessary. This means that once again you can enjoy all the tough and chewy foods that you have come to love, including steak.
If you do not replace the empty gaps left behind by missing teeth, further damage will occur to your smile. This includes potential gum destabilization due to a lack of support for your jaw to hold on to teeth. With dental implants, your jaw will be reinvigorated and restored once again. Furthermore, missing gaps can become cesspools for bacteria and plaque to thrive, eliminate this risk by replacing missing teeth with dental implants. If you jaw is not strong enough for dental implants, a bone grafting procedure will be necessary.
