Clovis, CA (PRWEB) August 20, 2015
Dr. Scott R. Jett, a leading periodontist in the Fresno, CA area, is now accepting patients in Clovis, CA, who are in need of dental implants. Implant dentistry has been around for decades, but it has made huge advances in recent years. The implants utilized today can last for decades with proper care. Dr. Jett urges patients in need of tooth replacement to consider utilizing this treatment option, which is performed using guided surgery.
Missing teeth can be caused by a numerous range of factors. Negative habits like smoking and an unhealthy diet are prime causes of tooth decay, which may result in missing teeth when appropriate measures are not taken to remove such habits. Accidents resulting in significant trauma may also cause teeth to loosen and fall out. Even among all considerable factors, periodontal disease still remains the nation’s leading cause of tooth loss. The condition has become so prevalent in the U.S. that as many as four percent of people 64 and older have lost all of their natural teeth and a substantial amount of the population have been shown to be missing a single tooth.
Dental implants are ideal for Clovis, CA patients because they are a permanent alternative to other tooth replacement options. Dentures were long touted as the go-to treatment for many patients, yet retained many undesirable side effects. The most common side effect is the degeneration of the bone in the jaw. When teeth fall out, the bone no longer receives the stimulation it requires to remain strong and healthy, eventually leading to deformations in the jaw structure. Stimulation of the jawbone is required to prevent this from occurring. When dental implants are placed, they function and simulate as natural teeth to stimulate the jaw, preventing further deterioration.
