Mount Horeb, WI (PRWEB) September 14, 2016
Dr. Angela Cotey celebrates Self Improvement Month this September by offering information and treatment plans for patients with missing teeth in order to raise awareness for the dangers of leaving tooth loss untreated. She works with individuals to identify and customize their ideal restoration options and is now accepting new patients for dental implant placement without a referral. People who opt for dental implants in Mount Horeb, WI, enjoy the oral health and aesthetically pleasing benefits of a permanent, natural and fully functional tooth replacement.
Although replacing missing teeth with dentures can provide immediate advantages such as an elevated self-confidence and sometimes the ability to eat normally again, it is not able to address greater oral health issues. Under the surface of the gums, another, much more serious problem develops. Natural tooth roots stimulate bone growth with every chewing motion, however, without that stimulation, the jaw bone begins to degrade. If left untreated, this process can cause additional teeth to fall out and the entire facial shape to change.
Dr. Cotey often recommends dental implants in Mount Horeb, WI, as a better alternative to removable dentures. Using advanced, three-dimensional Cone Beam CT imaging, she locates the nerves, bone and other structures in the face so she can develop a customized treatment plan that maximizes the success of the implant. Then, she surgically places a titanium post into the empty socket, where it mimics the function of the original root. The implant and bone fuse, which prevents the tooth from becoming loose while creating the stimulation that the jaw needs for optimal health. Once the healing process is complete, the new tooth should be cared for with regular brushing, flossing and professional dental cleanings.
