Tooth loss is a topic many individuals would prefer not to talk about or consider, but the fact of the matter is that it does still occur. In fact, there are a myriad of factors contributing to structural loss, from the foods you eat to the number of dental appointments that are skipped or not attended and everything in-between. Whether decay has advanced to the point of no return or an oral structure was knocked-out, it is crucial to recognize the importance of making sure the missing structure is replaced. At Cedar Dental in Cedar Rapids, IA, our team understands the importance of ensuring your smile is complete and discusses how dental implants can benefit you.
Protection from Bacteria
Oral bacteria thrive in the hard-to-reach crevices of your smile, making gaps between teeth the perfect place to inhabit. When you have a tooth that has been lost or extracted, the gap left behind is a hot spot for bacteria to hide and grow, ultimately causing major problems down the line such as cavities in surrounding teeth, infection, and even can result in further tooth loss. By filling the opening with an artificial oral structure such as a dental implant and restoration, the possibility of further infection is decreased dramatically. Contact our office to learn more about the benefits of receiving an implant.
Everyone’s oral needs are unique, and thus a custom treatment is needed to provide you with a happy, healthy grin. We begin our process by carefully examining and evaluating the affected area for optimal placement. We then secure a titanium post underneath the gum line in the jawbone. When the bone heals, it will heal around the post and create a secure connection that will be able to withstand standard bite pressure. After the post is placed, a custom-made restoration is created and placed on the post, finally completing your grin. The crown is created with precision to match the shade of your teeth as well as the design and texture. Once the process is complete, you will have a seamless smile that is complete once more.
Aesthetically and Functionally Completes Your Smile
Smiles are typically the first thing people notice about others, and having a bright and shiny beam contributes significantly to an individual’s level of confidence. By completing your smile with a custom-made dental implant and restoration, your confidence will be instilled as you are able to flaunt your beautiful grin.
