Dr. William Stringham helps his patients restore their smiles with dental implants in Fairfax.
FAIRFAX, VA, January 01, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The loss of teeth can have a significant impact on a person's self-esteem. Missing teeth can make an individual look older, and bite problems and difficulties in eating may arise. Tooth loss can occur for a number of reasons, including neglecting teeth and gums with poor diet and improper oral hygiene. Athletes such as rugby players and boxers are often prone to losing teeth due to trauma, as well. No matter the reason for tooth loss, dental implants in Fairfax from Dr. William Stringham can help restore the appearance and functionality of his patients' smiles.
Dr. Stringham explains to his patients in Fairfax that dental implants are replacements for the root portion of the tooth and consist of a threaded titanium screw or post that is surgically placed into the jawbone. By replacing missing tooth roots, implants offer more than an esthetic enhancement, they provide people with the strength and durability required to eat all the foods they love without struggling to chew.
"There are a number of restorative options for the treatment of missing teeth, but none have proven to be as functionally effective and durable as implants. Implants are so well designed that they mimic the look and feel of your natural teeth and are made of synthetic, yet biocompatible material such as metal or ceramic," said Dr. William Stringham, a dentist in Fairfax, VA.
In cases where too many teeth are missing and there are no supporting teeth for bridges, or dentures, more solid dental implants in Fairfax are the only choice to replace the missing teeth. A major advantage of using dental implants to replace missing teeth is that they do not require preparation or drilling of neighboring healthy teeth. They also do not necessitate special brushes and extra care for oral hygiene. After some time, when teeth are lost, bone loss of the jaw occurs and dental implants are used in order to slow this process down, preventing excessive loss of your bone structure.
As a dentist in Fairfax, Dr. William Stringham is available to help patients in the prevention of tooth loss, as well as notice signs of tooth loss before they occur. Dental implants are not for everyone, but with proper consultation with your Katy dentist, an appropriate treatment plan can be created.
