Missing teeth are not just a cosmetic issue. When you lose one or more of your natural teeth, you will often deal with shifting pain and speech issues short term. Over time, the ripple effect of missing teeth contributes to the slow shifting of your remaining teeth, which can change your bite, cause tooth and bone loss, and increase your risk for gum and periodontal disease.
Due to the longevity of their benefits, dental implants are the gold standard solution for one or more (link to implant bridges here) missing teeth. A dental implant is a medical device that is surgically implanted into the jawbone to create an artificial root where a tooth has been removed.
Implants are stronger than natural teeth and can last for a lifetime. Implant treatment has little to no gum and bone loss long-term, a 15+ year lifetime, the best possible aesthetics, and the ability for you to brush and floss without the aid of special accessories. Additionally, implants naturally stimulate their surrounding areas, helping to preserve your gums and jaw as you age. Beyond functionality, implant patients benefit from improved appearance, confidence, and overall quality of life.
Dental implants are an investment for patients in both time and cost, as the process can take 3 – 6 months to adjust and is rarely covered by insurance. Most insurance companies consider dental implants cosmetic because there are cheaper ways to replace a tooth short-term, however, implants provide a more permanent solution.
