If you are missing one, two, or all of your teeth, dental implants may be right for you! Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that serve as a foundation for bridges or dental crowns which replace missing teeth. A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed in the jawbone just below the gum line. Implants do not need support from surrounding teeth. This makes implants a better alternative than other available options.
Patients lose their teeth for a variety of reasons. Some of the reasons are:
» Periodontal disease caused by heredity and/or environment factors
» Behavior-based reasons
» Decay or injury
Some of the reasons patients choose dental implants to replace missing teeth include:
• Improved speech
• Proper chewing function
• Stability of adjacent teeth
• Comfort and protecting your overall oral health.
Whatever reason a person has lost a tooth/ teeth, be assured that your smile can be restored at Northern Nevada Family Dental.
