WESTFIELD, IN, July 27, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Patients affected by tooth loss in Westfield, Indiana have a method for tooth replacement that does not involve dental bridges or partial dentures. At Krause Dental, Dr. Kenneth Krause offers dental implants as an artificial tooth replacement method that is both stable and reliable.
A Swedish research is credited with creating dental implants in the 1960s. Since this time, many innovations and improvements have been made in materials and implantation techniques for dental implants. Dr. Krause has pursued numerous continuing education opportunities that allow him to determine if a patient is the right candidate for a dental implant as well as create the crown that fits over the dental implant.
"Dental implants provide patients a permanent and highly natural-looking tooth replacement method that doesn't involve making changes to surrounding teeth," says Dr. Krause, a Westfield, IN dentist. "More and more of my patients are choosing this option for the many benefits they provide."
If a patient has experienced the loss of a single tooth or even a full upper or lower arch, he or she may qualify for a dental implant. Dr. Krause performs implant dentistry consultations at his Westfield, IN dental office. This involves examining a patient's teeth and gums, taking X-ray images to view the jawbone and discussing a patient's medical history. Each of these factors plays an important role in the success of a dental implant.
Because dental implants are surgically implanted into the jawbone, enough jawbone must be present to firmly anchor the implant in place. Patients who experienced tooth loss some time ago may not have as much jawbone because the bone tends to recede or go away with time. If a patient has experienced significant jawbone loss, Dr. Krause may recommend undergoing bone grafting or other steps to enhance bone in a particular area.
In addition to aiding in patient selection and educating patients about the process, Dr. Krause also creates the custom crowns that fit over the dental implant. After a dental surgeon inserts the implant and it has had time to heal, Dr. Krause can create the crown or snap-on denture, creating a seamless smile that masks tooth loss.
