Dental Implants Act Like Natural Teeth

When we lose teeth, whether to injury, decay, or gum disease, this could leave behind gaps and even weaken your jawbone! To avoid an older appearance and restore function to your smile, we could help with dental implants. Our team of talented periodontic experts in Geneva and Fairport, NY, can help secure dental implants so you can smile with confidence.

The Risks of Lost Teeth

What happens to our smile when we lose natural teeth? The obvious impact is the gap in your smile, which can make you feel embarrassed. But this gap can also limit your meal options, and could also impact how clearly you speak. Misalignment could occur, as surrounding teeth drift from position due to this open space. The body also no longer needs calcium and phosphorus to the jawbone around the missing root, so the area loses mass and density, breaking down to cause further tooth loss and eventually, an older appearance. Don’t let these issues arise and threaten your smile further, talk to our team about dental implants.

Inserting Your Tooth Roots

Our team will first assess the cause and severity of your tooth loss, so we can decide whether you need an individual one, or several to support a bridge or denture. We also want to diagnose and treat any underlying oral health issues so we can ensure the longevity of your new teeth. We will guide the implant portions into the jaw with digital technology, ensuring these biocompatible titanium posts sit at the right angle, position, and doeth to ensure they stimulate the growth of jawbone tissue, preventing the breakdown of mass and density. These new roots protect your facial structure and also have the ability to stay in place for decades to come, a lifetime in some cases!

Completing Your New Tooth

Once your new root is inserted into the jaw, we will wait for the area to heal and then connect an abutment, which allows us to attach the crown, completing your new tooth. The crown will look natural and blend with the tooth. If you have large gaps or major tooth loss, then our team could connect a denture, and this can be done in one visit in some cases. The fixed denture means no slippage and no need to remove them for maintenance, and your denture can last for decades instead of just five years!

If you have any questions about how we address tooth loss with lifelike dental implants, then contact our team today to learn more. You deserve the chance to smile with confidence.
