Struggling with tooth loss? Dental implants are a popular choice for patients who are missing teeth from genetics, injury, extractions, or an advanced stage of periodontal disease. Dental implants preserve natural bone, don't harm adjacent teeth, and offer unmatched longevity and stability. If you're having trouble speaking, difficulty eating, or feel uncomfortable and embarrassed about missing teeth, visit Dr. Marco Fernandez, DMD, of Advantage Family Dentistry in Parsippany, NJ, to discuss how dental implants could help your whole smile.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a small metal post or frame, which your dentist surgically inserts into your jawbone, beneath the gums. They can be used to replace one tooth or multiple missing teeth, making them an excellent option for a full-mouth restoration. Once the dental implant is in place, it becomes a solid foundation for Dr. Fernandez to mount an artificial porcelain crown, dental bridge, or removable lower denture.
Dental Implants Help Your Whole Smile
Whether it's for functional or cosmetic reasons, dental implants provide several advantages. If you're missing all of your teeth, Dr. Fernandez may recommend implant-supported dentures or implant-supported bridges to restore your oral health and provide aesthetic enhancement. Because these options replace some of your tooth roots, your jawbone is better preserved. Other reported benefits of dental implants include eating without discomfort, improved self-esteem, and the confidence to speak without slurring your words.
