MESA, AZ, January 05, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Tooth loss can occur during two different times in your life. First, you lose all of your primary teeth. Of course, that is expected, but that may not be the only time you lose your teeth. Later on in life, you may experience tooth loss due to severe decay or periodontal disease. Restorative and preventative dental care has vastly improved the chances of older adults retaining their natural teeth. But not everyone is so fortunate-one fourth of the Americans age 65 and older have lost all of their teeth.
"You probably don't expect to lose your teeth, but it happens, often. The dental field has taken great measures to help you preserve your teeth, but sometimes it is inevitable, especially if you have periodontal disease or severe decay. To restore your smile, I am now offering dental implants in Mesa," says Dr. Rakesh Pema, family and general dentist in Mesa, AZ.
Why should you choose a dental implant?
Dentures and bridges are popular choices, but many patients are looking for something more-a permanent solution. The first step of a dental implant starts with a screw or cylinder being placed into your jawbone. Once the jawbone and gum tissue bond with the implant (the process known as osseointegration), your dentist will add an attachment (known as an abutment) to the implant. After you take time to heal, a synthetic tooth can be secured to the abutment and implant.
The main reason many patients request an implant is because it permanently stays in your jawbone-no slip, no removal. This also means you can improve your speech and eat like you normally would.
Unlike dentures and bridges, an implant stimulates the jawbone, supporting jaw and facial structure. "Nowadays, advanced technology allows dentists to rebuild a smile and provide great looking results. The synthetic caps, created for a restorative procedure, looks and feels like any of your natural teeth. It won't stand apart from your other teeth-it will stand together without anyone noticing the difference," explains Dr. Pema, general dentist in Mesa.
