When one or more of your natural teeth have been lost, you are left with some undeniable drawbacks. The most obvious is cosmetic. When you smile, if the lost teeth are in the front, it will cause you to feel self-conscious. But your other teeth can shift, causing discomfort and a misaligned occlusion (bite). If the teeth are in the back, your chewing will be less efficient, and that can even have a negative impact on your digestion. Those are all excellent reasons to get our Huntington Village dental implants.
Bridges and dentures have been around longer and they are fine options to replace teeth. However, the lack the advantages that you can get with implants. Both of them are only surface solutions, while our Huntington Village dental implants also replace the root beneath the gums. You may think that’s not a big deal, since you can’t see it. But having a new root is what gives the replacement tooth such reliable stability that allows you to speak and laugh with confidence since you know it won’t move around. And you can chew, even tough foods, without any worry at all. Also, the new root preserves your facial contours and keeps your vital gum and bone tissue from atrophying. There is a several month wait after the post is placed, during which your jaw bone grows around it and fuses with it. After that, you will be measured for a tooth-colored crown that will be the tooth portion. It will be cemented to the post and that completes our Huntington Village dental implants. This is a longterm solution. In fact, there’s every reason to expect our Huntington Village dental implants to last a lifetime, with proper care.
