If you have missing teeth, it is crucial to replace them. Without all your teeth, chewing and eating can destabilize your bite, weaken your other teeth and cause you discomfort. When teeth are missing, your mouth can shift and even cause your face to look older. Dental implants are a great way to replace your missing teeth.
What is a Dental Implant?
Using state-of-the-art implant dentistry procedures and technology, Dr. Goodman can restore a tooth implant in order to repair your smile. A tooth implant is a new tooth root made of titanium that supports a beautiful new porcelain crown or other restoration that looks just like your natural tooth or better! Technically, your tooth implant is composed of these two parts mentioned above that mimic a tooth’s root and crown. Dr. Goodman places some truly spectacular dental implant restorations (the visible portion of the tooth).
Dental implants may also be used to anchor dentures, especially lower dentures that tend to shift when you talk or chew. Plus, for patients with removable partial dentures, dental implants can permanently replace those missing teeth so you have a more natural-looking and feeling smile.
Advantages of Implant Dentistry
- Dental implants will probably last your whole life.
- A tooth implant looks just like your natural teeth, so it fits into your smile beautifully. Smile and laugh and feel confident having your photo taken.
- Dental implants feel natural in your smile. When you have a missing tooth, it feels uncomfortable. Filling out your smile with implant dentistry is an excellent treatment.
- Implant dentistry can give you the functionality of being able to chew and eat when you have a tooth implant placed.
Who is a Candidate for Implant Dentistry?
The ideal candidate for a dental implant is someone with good oral and overall health. Sufficient bone mass in your jaw is needed to support the implant, and the best candidates also have healthy gums that are without periodontal disease.
