|If you’re missing a tooth, you’ve got several options. The least advisable is to do nothing!|
It’s not just about aesthetic Replacing a lost tooth is important to restoring maximum function,
|maintaining the alignment of surrounding teeth, and preserving facial contours.|
|Over time, those adjacent to a toothless gap can drift to fill the space and move|
out of alignment. Additionally, tooth roots below the gums provide stimulation
| that the underlying jawbone needs to maintain its form and density.|
|Following are common approaches to replacing a lost tooth.|
The most appropriate for you will depend on a variety of factors that you should discuss
with your dentist.
|This is actually a tooth root replacement to which a separately fashioned crown is attached.|
|For successful implantation, there must be a sufficient amount of healthy jawbone|
to anchor the implant and the adjacent gums and teeth must be healthy.
|Certain systemic health conditions may preclude implantation as well.|
|Nobody really wants to live with missing teeth. So, throughout history,|
human ingenuity has come up with various ways of replacing them
|If your parents lost a tooth, they probably had only one good choice for its replacement:|
|the three-unit fixed bridge. But today there’s an even better option available the dental implant.|
|Why do we think dental implants are the best method yet found for tooth replacement?|
It’s all about bone tissue.
|Even if you can’t see a missing tooth, the bone in your jaw “knows” it’s gone.|
Without the stimulation that teeth provide, the alveolar bone begins to resorb
|The bones in the jaw support facial structures like cheeks, lips and chin.|
|As bone disappears, cheeks begin to sink in, lips lose their support,|
and eventually the lower third of the face shrinks, exaggerating the appearance of aging.
|Aside from esthetics, bone loss can also lead to problems with the gums, the bite,|
and other health and nutritional issues.
