Richmond Hill, GA (PRWEB) September 02, 2014
To show support for Self-Improvement Month in September, Dr. Justin Bordlemay, a Richmond Hill, GA periodontist, is helping patients with missing teeth improve their oral health with dental implants. People who visit Dr. Bordlemay for implants soon after losing teeth may avoid oral health issues such as bone density loss and tooth misalignment. People who receive implants also enjoy the advantages of having a fully functional tooth replacement, since implants are anchored in the jawbone like natural teeth.
Dental implants offer numerous health benefits to people who have lost teeth. Once a tooth has been lost, neighboring teeth can shift into the gap, leading to misalignment and bite issues. Additionally, bone density loss always follows tooth loss, since teeth normally provide the stimulation that keeps the bone from deteriorating. Decreases in bone density can lead to changes in facial structure, and if too much deterioration occurs, the remaining bone may not be adequate to support dentures or implants. Most tooth replacement options do not address bone density loss. Implants stabilize bone density and act as a permanent tooth replacement. People who receive implants can eat a full diet, speak without unnatural sounds, and care for their implants like they would care for natural teeth.
Most patients can receive dental implants in just three appointments with Dr. Bordlemay, a Richmond Hill, GA periodontist. During the initial consultation, Dr. Bordlemay verifies that implants are a good fit for the patient. He also determines how the implants should be placed to minimize the risk of infections or other complications. During the next appointment, Dr. Bordlemay places the titanium implant into the jawbone. These are then left to heal beneath the gumline for three to six months. During a final appointment, Dr. Bordlemay uncovers the implants and attaches the final crown. At this point, the implants are permanently secured and fully functional.
Dr. Bordlemay offers numerous implant solutions, from individual crowns to full dentures. People who have lost any of their natural teeth should meet with a Richmond Hill, GA periodontist to discuss possible solutions before bone density loss makes implants a less suitable option. Patients are welcome to call Dr. Bordlemay’s office or visit his website to schedule an appointment.
