Tooth loss can leave you feeling uncomfortable and self-conscious. To regain quality of life requires the proper consideration for natural oral structure. Dr. Palmer treats many cases of tooth loss with dental implants because, through this method, natural structure is replaced.
Without the function of healthy teeth, a number of consequences occur. Initially, the concern with tooth loss may be cosmetic. Even at the back of the mouth, a noticeable gap can be distressing. The tooth that was lost also filled the essential need for chewing function. Depending on where tooth loss occurs, or the extent of loss, it is also possible that speech will be affected.
Perhaps one of the most concerning complications of tooth loss is what happens beneath the surface. Without teeth and their roots, the bone that supports remaining teeth begins to break down. Over time, bone loss can be seen in the face. Once these changes occur, it can be difficult to rebuilt optimal structure.
Historically, tooth replacement has only replace the visible portion of the tooth. Implant dentistry is recreates optimal function through the replacement of missing roots. Taking this approach, a lot more is accomplished than what has been possible with conventional methods.
Dental implants do more than replace teeth that you have lost; they let you take back your life. This is true whether you have only one tooth to replace or if you want to stabilize ill-fitting dentures.
The dental implant procedure is straightforward and performed with precision that leads to lifelong results. Dr. Palmer, a biological dentist, uses metal-free implants that facilitate longevity and cause minimal if any reaction in oral tissues. Once integrated with bone, implants do what roots once did, they stabilize teeth, and they promote bone regeneration by transferring force that stimulates bone growth.
Implant dentistry has changed the way dentists replace missing teeth. As such, it has changed the way tooth loss affects your life. Contact Palmer Distinctive Dentistry to learn more about our zirconium dental implants.
