Dr. Judd Shenk of Shenk Dental Care offers dental implants to patients seeking a tooth replacement as part of their New Year’s resolutions.
Ignoring missing teeth in adults can lead to many other problems. Gaps in the mouth leave room for remaining teeth to shift and misalign. Without support from the tooth roots, the jaw bone begins deteriorating and this can cause the facial structure to fall. Dental implants can be used to replace single or multiple missing teeth.
Dental implants join fixed bridges and dentures as methods for replacing missing teeth in adults. Adding implants to these traditional replacement methods offers a number of benefits to patients who receive them, including the stability and longevity of the replacement tooth. Since dental implants are typically made of titanium -- a metal that is compatible with the human body -- the implant is much sturdier and lasts longer than many other options when cared for properly. In addition, dental implants are able to help preserve the jawbone, a factor that is very important when preventing symptoms of lost teeth.
