Millions of teeth are lost every year. Finding them is less important than replacing them, which is why it is important to get the right replacements.
Dental implants have been a game-changer for our patients in Laredo, TX. Knowing what we have seen at Davenport Dental Group, we recommend implants for all of these people.
1. Person Who Has Lost a Tooth
A single missing tooth may not seem like a big issue, but it can lead to further tooth loss if you ignore it. Getting an implant to support a dental crown gives you the closest thing to a natural tooth that you can get from restorative dentistry.
2. Person Who Has Lost Multiple Teeth
Losing a single tooth is bad, but losing multiple teeth is worse. With that kind of gap in your smile, you may find routine daily activities have become more challenging. Implants can secure and support your bridge without requiring any changes to your remaining healthy teeth.
3. Person Who Has Loose Dentures
Dentures often start off feeling great. The problem is that they don’t prevent bone loss. As your jaw loses density, its shape changes, too. That causes dentures to become looser and more frustrating. Implants can stop bone loss in your jaw and keep your dentures firmly in place.
4. Person Who Needs Extensive Dental Work
You may have a combination of issues that need to be addressed with your oral health. You could benefit from full-mouth reconstruction to support teeth that are missing or need to be removed and replaced.
