What are dental Implants? Dental implants are now the preferred tooth replacement treatment option over partial dentures and fixed bridges. A tooth extraction may be necessary before placing dental implants and the implant is placed directly into the jaw bone to provide a secure fit.
Tooth Loss and Implants
More than two-thirds of adults between the ages of 35 and 44 years have lost at least one tooth over their lifetime because of an injury, tooth decay, or gum disease. By the time 24 percent of these adults reach the age of 74 years, they have lost all of their permanent teeth.
Today’s advances in implant dentistry in Coral Gables, FL provide many alternatives to traditional tooth replacement methods such as fixed bridges and dentures. Removable dentures often lead to bone loss and may affect facial structures. Poorly fitting dentures can make clicking sounds when the wearer eats and speaks. Fixed bridges require grinding down neighboring teeth, which can make otherwise healthy teeth more susceptible to damage. Still, these tooth replacement options may be a viable solution when you undergo a tooth extraction or have missing teeth.
The 2D/3D CS 8100 3D imaging system makes 3D technology simple and provides the highest image quality to assist our doctors in treatment and planning. We have found that dental implants yield better long term results for the replacement of missing teeth because the titanium construction is resistant to decay and it easily fuses with the natural bone through osseointegration. Implants cannot slip or make embarrassing noises, and they are designed to look just like your natural tooth structure. Dental implants also have a high success rate.
