Smile Again with Dental Implants
Tooth loss is a reality nobody wants to face. The chewing challenges, the gaps in your smile, and the impact on your overall health all add up to a situation that is inconvenient and unfortunate. In the past, many treatments attempted to make life easier, but the ideal replacement did not come until later.
Today, however, dental implants address all the issues people experience after tooth loss with solutions that restore the full function, natural beauty, and oral health.
If you are interested in learning more about the amazing benefits of dental implant restorations, give Dr. Jim Madany and Dr. Jessica M. Gaul a call. Gaul Dental in Troy serves people throughout Oakland County with quality and expert dental implant restorations.
Dental Implants Restore Function and Health
Dental implants are titanium posts placed into the jaw bone that mimic the functions of natural tooth roots. After they are placed, they become securely anchored into the jaw bone through a process called osseointegration, where bone growth fuses the post into the jaw.
The posts serve two functions. First, they provide a stable tooth root for a prosthetic crown that is attached to it with an abutment. Second, they support the health of the jaw bone. After the loss of a tooth, the jaw bone begins a process called resorption, where volume is lost. This can affect the health of neighboring teeth, and it can also cause changes in facial structure. Resorption can shrink the jaw bone, giving the face a sunken appearance.
Drs. Madany and Gaul place the implant posts with the guidance of a precise digital image of your oral structure. This allows for accurate placement.
Crowns Provide a Beautiful Restoration
Dental implants support prosthetics for a single tooth, several teeth, or a full arch of teeth. The prosthetic crowns attached to the posts are made of lustrous porcelain that shine like real teeth and have the strength of natural enamel. Patients can collaborate with the dentists in designing their crowns, giving input on their size, shape, and color.
Benefits of Dental Implant Restorations
Dental implants have many other advantages, such as:
- Permanently fixed, requiring no adhesive paste to remain attached to the jaw.
- Full chewing function.
- A 95% success rate.
- Last a lifetime when properly cared for.
- Seamlessly blend with adjacent teeth.
The process of receiving dental implants is different for each patient, depending on their unique dental condition. Gaul Dental will develop a plan best suited to your dental situation and desired aesthetics.
