Oral Health ABCs: Dental Implants

Dental Impants

With the upcoming holiday seasons set to fall upon us, it is important to take the time to ensure your smile is functioning at its maximum potential. If you are suffering from any missing teeth, your oral health can decline. One particular tooth replacement treatment that is highly effective at restoring your smile is via single-tooth dental implants.

Dental implants are artificial replacements designed to fill out your smile by taking the place of missing teeth. They can be customized and modified to fit exactly as necessary and can be shaded to mimic the natural color of your teeth. Other replacement treatments such as dentures may move around within your mouth if you bite into foods that are too or chewy, but dental implants run zero risks of tooth slippage. Thus, dental implants have zero food restrictions, so you can enjoy all the meals that you have come to know and love.

Individuals suffering from missing teeth are likely to notice negative impacts to their facial structure and gums as well. When you are missing teeth, your facial structure will appear older and more sunken in. Furthermore, missing teeth can cause your gums to destabilize, which can result in nearby or neighboring teeth moving or shifting out of position. Dental implants seek to reverse both of these ailments, making you look younger and healthier in the process.

Make the Switch to Implant-Supported Dental Bridges

Dental Bridge

Similar to implant-supported dentures, implant-supported dental bridges are also a highly effective form of tooth replacement therapy. If you have up to 3 missing teeth in a row, implant-supported dental bridges are a highly recommended treatment we offer.

With traditional dental bridges, bridges are inserted into loose spaces in your mouth where teeth are missing. Dental bridges fill these voids and link to nearby and neighboring teeth. However, implant-supported bridges are attached directly to your jaw bone which not only provides an increased stability, but it removes the need to grind down or alter nearby our neighboring teeth for insertion. In addition, implant-supported bridges can last up to a lifetime of heavy use compared to roughly 5 to 7 years of traditional dental bridges. In many cases, implant-supported bridges will not require periodic replacements or restorations.

Our team of highly trained professionals uses state-of-the-art technology and cutting-edge treatment techniques to ensure your implant-supported bridges are crafted, customized, and installed safely, securely, and effectively for a lifetime of oral health happiness.

If you would like to schedule an appointment with Aspire Surgical to see if you are a candidate for implant-supported bridges, please call our team. With the help of Drs. Michelle Maak, Richard Shamo, and AJ Stosich, you can set the stage for the oral health care you desire.
