Tooth loss at any age can be a traumatic experience. Perhaps you had severe decay at an early age and lost your teeth to extractions. Or you lost teeth due to injury from a fall or related to sports. You may have developed complications with a root canal procedure and it could not be treated. Or you developed an abscess or gum disease that resulted in extractions. Perhaps your tooth just never developed and it has always been missing. And if the tooth was lost a long time ago, you may now notice gradual shifting of your teeth, jaw pain, bite problems, and emergence of new issues.
Treatment approaches can vary from doing nothing, to conventional bridges, to modern dental implants. Some people seek immediate treatment while others wait. Dental implants are now the standard-of-care for replacement of missing teeth. But as you consider your options, it is important to think about your motivations for replacing the missing teeth.
- Is self-confidence and public image the motivation?
- Is it to smile again?
- Is it to keep you other teeth from being damaged?
- Do you want to preserve your oral health?
- Do you want to be able to eat your favorite foods and live a healthier life?
What Implants Do We Use in Our Office?
We use only the most well known and researched implant companies in our office, including Zimmer, Biomet (3i), and Nobel. We do not use the lower quality and cheap dental implants that are available in the market. These cheaper implants do not have adequate research and literature behind them and their composition and manufacturing process are unknown. We do not recommend the use of such implants as they are unpredictable and may be associated with an increase risk of failure, infection, fractures, and poor healing.
