-- Are you missing a tooth or two, maybe more than that? Tooth loss is stressful for two reasons-your smile looks incomplete and you have to find a replacement. While dentures or a bridge might work well for some people, maybe you are looking for something a little more permanent, am I right?
"It's hard to accept the fact that tooth loss is possible at any age, not just for older adults. Physical trauma, tooth decay and gum disease can affect anyone. When a patient is only missing one or two teeth, a bridge is typically used. In the past, a bridge was the most popular solution for replacing a missing tooth. Nowadays, a dental implant procedure is taking front and center," says Dr. Anderson, dentist in Franklin.
A dental implant is an innovative procedure that recreates your missing tooth. At Dr. Anderson's dental practice in Franklin, dental implants offer many advantages for patients that a bridge can't give to you. There is one distinct difference between a bridge and implant-it's the fact that a dental implant is inserted into the jawbone. A bridge is attached to the surrounding teeth, which means the artificial tooth acts as a bridge between natural teeth. To insert a bridge, neighboring teeth need to be filed down. The dental implant process is a bit different-in a good way.
At the first stage of a dental implant procedure, Dr. Anderson doesn't need to file down surrounding teeth. An implant is secured into the jawbone and the gum tissue and bone heal around it, securing its place. Afterwards, an abutment is attached to the implant and covered by a synthetic crown.
"A implant is meant to mimic your natural teeth. It's the one restorative procedure that comes closest to doing this. Plus, it's permanent, so it feels real. An implant has been a great relief for many patients," says Dr. Anderson.
If an implant is secured, it helps stimulate the jawbone. It's important to stop the jawbone from resorbing because it can cause facial changes. It's a permanent solution, so patients don't need to remove it. These are a few of the benefits a dental implant provides patients. With proper care, your implant can possibly last a lifetime. What's not to love about that?
