Do You Have Missing Teeth? Get the Treatment You Deserve!
Many adults have lost at least one of their natural teeth by middle age but are good candidates for a tooth replacement procedure like dental implants. A dental implant will restore your smile and preserve the jaw bone.
Many dentists, including Dr. Wilbanks, now recommend dental implants for tooth replacement over dentures and fixed bridges. Traditional tooth replacement procedures rest on the gums or require grinding down otherwise healthy teeth. Dental implants are placed directly into the jaw bone and have a high success rate.
The majority of adults who have reached middle age have lost at least one tooth to tooth decay, gum disease, or trauma, while some end up losing all of their teeth throughout the course of their lives. If you have missing teeth, talk to Dr. Wilbanks about tooth replacement procedures like dental implants, which can restore your smile. Today’s dental technologies provide options beyond dentures and fixed bridges, which still pose some risks.
Dental Implants vs. Dentures
Dentures can become loose and make sounds when eating, and fixed bridges require grinding down healthy adjacent teeth. While these treatments are still safe, dental implants provide better long term results for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants are made out of titanium and are fused directly into the jaw bone. They look, feel, and function just like your real teeth and have the added advantage of stimulating the jaw bone which helps to prevent bone loss. Dental implants are also impervious to decay.
