SOUTH PHILADELPHIA, PA, January 23, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- When it comes to tooth loss, you are probably at a loss. What procedure should you choose? Which one will be the right fit? Nowadays, dental implants are an increasingly popular choice for patients who have lost a tooth or two to tooth decay, trauma or gum disease. To secure a long lasting restorative solution, talk to Drs. Francis S. Matarazzo and Anita M. Milici, South Philadelphia dentists.
"Implants are an ideal solution for many patients. If you have good oral health habits, adequate jawbone and healthy gum tissue, you are a great candidate for a dental implant," explains Dr. Matarazzo, South Philadelphia dentist.
Why do these qualifications matter? It's because they factor into the process of osseointegration-the most important stage of a dental implant. For the bone cells and gum tissue to successfully attach to an implant (screw-like device), there needs to be adequate jawbone left in the affected area. An implant is typically made of titanium, a unique property that allows the fusion of bone to metal. This is the reason why implants are extremely stable, permanent and long lasting.
Moreover, implant materials are biocompatible and can be easily matched to surrounding teeth, meaning the look and feel of a synthetic cap will mimic your natural tooth.
"Other restorative treatment options, such as a bridge, may require us to shape and cut down part of your neighboring teeth to support the bridge. Sometimes dentures and bridges are the best solution, but our main responsibility is to preserve your natural teeth, so we don't want to disturb them. That is why dental implants are a cutting-edge solution because it doesn't cut away at healthy teeth," states Dr. Milici.
In reality, dental implants can replace more than one or two teeth. You can get multiple or all of your teeth replaced by dental implants in South Philadelphia. You can also get implant-supported dentures for a more secure and comfortable fit.
