CHESTERFIELD, MO, February 07, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- It's one of those moments when you look in the mirror and think-I never thought this would happen to me. No one imagines a cavity to turn into tooth loss. And gum disease-how could you not realize what was going on? It's also almost impossible to predict dental trauma or avoid it. With a missing tooth, you feel at a loss, wondering what to do next. First things first, you need to find a tooth replacement. For residents in Chesterfield, dental implants may be the solution of choice for you-it's what many have chosen already.
"Over half of adults, whose ages range from 35 to 44, have lost a tooth. From an accident to gum disease, the cases will vary, but the problem will remain the same: tooth loss," explains Dr. Grasso, Chesterfield, MO dentist. "The statistics grow bigger as people get older because their teeth have spent years in contact with bite pressure, plaque bacteria and other outside forces. The one thing I let my patients know is that they can't give up and let tooth loss get worse. They need to do something about it."
In the past, restorative options included fixed bridges or removable dentures, but today's dental technology has provided you with dental implants, which is a permanent placement. The success of osseointegration is the key to keeping an implant rooted into the jawbone. That's when the implant attaches to the bone cells and gum tissue in the affected area.
At any practice, including Dr. Grasso's in Chesterfield, implant dentistry treatment requires precision and time. To reap all of the benefits, nothing should be rushed-this also applies to dental implants in Chesterfield. If osseointegration takes hold, the abutment and synthetic crown can be placed, finalizing the procedure. With every thing in order, you will notice how well the crown blends in with your natural teeth. And it should also be easier to eat and speak.
Most of all, the screw-like implant will stimulate the jawbone while still supporting your jawbone, facial structure, and of course, your smile.
