When you lose your baby teeth, and your permanent teeth erupt, these are meant to last a lifetime. For some, this doesn’t end up happening. Many Americans have lost at least one tooth for reasons ranging from decay or gum disease to physical trauma. Whatever the reason for your tooth loss, you should be happy to know that tooth replacement options are available to you from the team at Triad Dentistry in Greensboro, North Carolina. Our team is happy to welcome you to discuss some of these options.
For patients with missing teeth, there are several options available. Dentures and dental bridges are popular options with patients, but the most durable and long-lasting solution is a dental implant. Implants can be used to replace a single tooth or can be used as anchors for dentures, providing a better fit than traditional dentures held in by bonding adhesive. Our team at Triad Dentistry provides titanium implants to patients with sufficient bone structure. The titanium implant mimics the tooth’s root and provides the stimulation required for the jawbone to remain healthy. A crown is applied to the implant, providing the look and feel of a natural tooth.
Dental implants are incredibly durable and can last a lifetime with proper care. The stability provided by a dental implant ensures you can adequately chew food for good digestion. This stability is due to a process called osseointegration, during which the implant physically bonds with your jawbone. This bond is firm and will allow your smile to function normally. The team at Triad Dentistry encourages you to come in for a consultation so you can learn the many ways a dental implant will improve the function and aesthetic of your smile.
