If you are missing a tooth, you are most likely a candidate for a dental implant. You have probably seen people missing teeth and the problems that arise from this issue. Your smile suffers. You might not be able to eat foods you used to enjoy. You may feel self-conscious.
Dr. Linty John-Varghese understands that there is a lot more happening below the gum line than you may think. Without the tooth’s root to stimulate it, the dental bone that holds your teeth in place and helps give it its shape now begins to deteriorate. Over time, this leads to additional lost teeth and even changes in your appearance. Though there are several options to replace missing teeth, dental implants are the only option to stop bone loss and structural changes.
Dental implants provide a stable, natural and permanent alternative to other restorative dental treatments, such as bridges or partials. The implant ‘root’ is surgically implanted in the jaw, then given time to heal and integrate with surrounding bone.
A custom-designed crown is secured to the implant ‘root’ to restore the missing tooth resulting in a more beautiful, healthy and functional smile.
If you have questions about this procedure or wonder if it might be right for you, call Dr. John-Varghese for an implant consultation.
