When Should I Consider Dental Implants for My Smile?
- Posted on: Feb 28 2020
Losing your baby teeth to allow for your permanent teeth to come into alignment is a normal part of oral development. However, once the adult teeth are in place, they need to be cared for to eliminate the chances of damage or loss from periodontal disease, tooth decay, or trauma. If teeth are lost or extracted, it is essential that patients work directly with their dentist to determine the best possible tooth replacement option available. Dr. David S. Frey highly recommends long-term solutions such as dental implants.
Dental implants 101
Dental implants are titanium posts used by Dr. David S. Frey to replace natural tooth roots. It provides a proper foundation for the placement of a crown, bridge, or denture. These restorations have many advantages, which make patients more likely to consider them when compared to alternative solutions.
When should I consider dental implants?
Patients should work with their dentist as soon as their tooth has been lost or extracted to determine the best replacement option for their needs. Patients who are seeking a long-term option are often encouraged to consider the advantages of using dental implants. Dental implants are often considered when patients want a solution that is:
- A wise investment
- A long-term solution to tooth loss
- Strong, durable, and functions as a natural tooth
- Not removable/temporary
- Natural-looking and aesthetic
Most patients missing a single tooth will find dental implants to be a smart choice for their unique needs. However, patients who have replaced their teeth with dentures may also benefit from implants. Implant-retained dentures will stay in place better than dentures placed with or without dental adhesives. These dentures have the best functionality and allow patients to feel more confident in their denture placement.
