Is replacing missing teeth important?

August 28, 2018 meza_admin

Teeth are important. You need teeth to chew, to help you speak clearly and, of course, to smile. Every tooth plays a crucial role in supporting the structure of your mouth. Leaving a gap if you lose a tooth can have serious consequences. When the natural balance between teeth and bone becomes unstable the jaw bone starts to shrink, gums recede and the bone loss can become even worse! Opposing teeth, if left unsupported, can then move into the missing tooth space causing orthodontic problems and restorative dental problems.

Using the two-stage dental implant method to replace missing teeth

Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth. This solution feels and acts like a natural tooth when chewing, brushing or smiling.  A dental implant replaces the actual root of the missing tooth and provides a base for the crown of your new artificial tooth. 

At Meza Dental Care, we only use the safest and most effective method, which is the two-stage dental implant method. During the first stage, we place the dental implant directly into the bone, and wait for it to heal. During this healing period, the body is able to create a strong junction between the titanium dental implants and the bone structure, resulting in a long-lasting dental restoration.  This natural process is called “Osseo Integration”.

During the second stage, after the Osseo integration has occurred, we place the prosthetic tooth.  If you were to place the dental crown immediately after the surgery, chances are that the pressure of your bite on the abutment dental crown or new prosthetic tooth would prevent the Osseo integration of the dental implant and result in a failed procedure.

Single tooth implant

A major advantage of a single tooth implant is that there is no need to alter any other teeth.  Dental implants can also be a great solution for multiple missing teeth.  When smiling or talking, there is no way to tell the difference between a dental implant and a natural tooth.

A Successful Full Mouth Restoration for a Brighter Smile!

Although a cosmetic dentist’s skill is very important to a achieve a successful mouth restoration, the materials used in the treatment are equally important. Not every clinic has the same level of commitment to using quality materials. At Meza Dental Clinic, we only use US-made implants, which come with a lifetime guarantee.

Although the initial cost of a dental implant treatment is higher, it can be more cost effective in the long run. An dental implant restoration will not require replacement as often as a dental bridge. Additionally, an implant preserves the jawbone and the gum tissue, and there is no need for your cosmetic dentist to grind down healthy teeth.

The best possible option for your oral health and your general health would be to replace each tooth with a dental implant, as implants are the closest thing to restoring a natural tooth.
