Hudson, NY (PRWEB) September 19, 2014
Robert E. Danz, DDS is a general dentist whose Hudson, NY patients enjoy the benefits of his advanced skills and personalized treatment. In honor of Self-Improvement Month this month, Dr. Danz educates patients about the benefits of dental implants for the millions of people who are missing one or more teeth. The traditional methods to fill the spaces left by the absent teeth have included things like temporary dentures or a fixed bridge, both of which can pose significant side effects that can be more costly over time than dental implants.
The traditional temporary methods of filling the spaces left by missing teeth often turn out to lead to more problems in the long run. Partial dentures that sit on the gums are inconvenient and awkward, and they usually restrict the wearer to a diet of softer foods. Worse, temporary dentures can actually damage the strength of the jaw bone over time because the bone needs the stimulation of the roots of the teeth to stay strong and dense.
A fixed bridge used to fill the spaces between natural teeth has drawbacks, as well. Bridges rely on adjoining teeth for support. Research indicates that up to 30 percent of neighboring teeth that are adjoining bridgework fail in five to seven years. The bridge itself also wears out and often needs to be replaced once or twice during the patient's lifetime.
Dental implants solve these problems by providing a permanent, stable support for natural looking replacement teeth. First, this general dentist in Hudson, NY implants a titanium post in the area of the patient's jaw bone with maximum bone density. The post fuses with the bone over time. On top of the post, Dr. Danz places a fixture called the abutment that he uses to attach the crown, which is the part that looks and functions like a tooth in the patient's mouth.
