Replace Missing Teeth in Holladay
As we age, missing teeth become a much more common occurrence. In order to maintain dental health well into one’s senior years, caring for both teeth and the surrounding dental structures is essential. Dental implants provide support for both prosthetics and the immediate structures holding the smile in place.
Single-unit crowns are an alternative to traditional bridges and replace a missing tooth anywhere in the smile. While traditional bridges require altering adjacent healthy teeth, this procedure preserves the existing dental structure and restores complete functionality to the tooth.
Multi-unit bridges work best for a short row of missing teeth using anywhere from two to three dental implants. This bridge gathers its support directly from the jaw bone, providing proper jaw stimulation while maintaining an ideal esthetic.
Implant-supported dentures replace entire rows of teeth using anywhere from four to six dental implants in strategic areas for optimal strength and stability.
Why Choose Dental Implants to Replace Missing Teeth?
Missing teeth cause several issues, such as an alignment shift and jaw atrophy. Replacement with dental implants preserves existing dental structures by replacing the roots as well as crowns. Traditional restorations fail to replace missing dental roots, causing jaw shrinkage and deteriorating dental structures.
On the other hand, dental implant posts fuse with the jawbone and generate a unified support system for both existing dental structures and new prosthetics. Additionally, the biocompatible titanium material serves just as the original tooth, preventing issues like accelerated resorption and shrinkage. Dental implants not only completely replace missing teeth, they help to maintain the fullness within an individual’s jaw and cheeks. Receiving this procedure provides both esthetic and functional benefits not found in traditional restorations.
Care for dental implants is just like caring for regular teeth. However, a periodontist or experienced care professional is required to complete routine maintenance to ensure the longevity of the restorations.
