Missing teeth are hard for a number of reasons. They decrease confidence in one’s smile, lower the ability to eat certain foods, and they can cause bone loss that impacts other teeth, causing you to lose more. But for anyone living near Schaumburg, IL you are in luck! Scharrington Dental will help restore your smile and provide you the ability to live dental worry-free!
How Dental Implants Support Dental Health
The biggest reason for getting dental implants should be their ability to support the bone structure of your jaw and other teeth. There are many aesthetic options out there that look great but do not provide the bone support dental implants do. Bridges, for example, are made by grinding down the two surrounding teeth and placing a bridge over them and the gap caused by a missing tooth. This weakens the teeth, can still lead to cavities, and halves the life of your teeth that were ground down.
Dental implants fill the gap left by your missing tooth root which makes it so the surrounding teeth to your implant do not lose bone nor shift to fill the gap left by your missing tooth. So whilst it may be an investment to cover the costs of one dental implant, it will save you in the long run from having to pay for two or three or four dental implants.
How Dental Implants Helped Joseph!
Joseph had lost a lot of bone due to a root canal he had over a decade prior to his dental implant. Because he had broken his tooth twice, the second repair would eventually lead to the loss of the tooth because the tooth had taken on too much damage.
Because Joseph had a lot of bone loss, a lot of bone grafting was needed. He worked with an oral surgeon for this, we stood by his side making sure he was satisfied with everything. Once it was time for the restoration and he came back to us to begin the implant process. Once the implant was set and a crown was made, it was important that we made sure he was happy with his smile.
What his dental implant did was make it possible for him to keep the remaining of his healthy teeth. Because the post filled the space left by his missing root, the crown filling the space of his missing tooth, the other teeth did not try crowding the space and filling it. This saves him money in the long run, stress of worrying about what he can eat now, and confidence in his smile for years to come.
