Best Replacement for Missing Teeth

If you have been plagued with oral health issues for what seems like forever, call and schedule an appointment with Inspired Smiles. You may be an excellent candidate for dental implants, the best replacement for missing teeth.

Even if you are only missing a couple of teeth, dental implants are a much better option than dental bridges as they actually exercise the jawbone.

This is exactly what your real tooth roots do. If you have missing teeth or know someone who does, you will notice that sunken in look where the tooth used to be. That is simply because there is no tooth root to keep the jawbone happy.

Dental Implants for Missing Teeth

Dr. Daniel Yeager and Dr. Victoria Yeager explain that the minute you lose a tooth your jawbone will begin to shrink. As previously mentioned this is because it is not being exercised as it should.

Missing teeth also cause problems for other teeth. For example, your other teeth will do their best to move into the position where the tooth used to be. This makes it difficult to take care of your teeth.

In addition, missing teeth could cause your other teeth to crowd each other making brushing and flossing nearly impossible.

Dental Implant Placement

Bone graft surgery is usually recommended for patients with bone loss. If you require bone graft surgery you can expect some additional healing time. Dental implants usually take between 9 to 18 months to heal completely.

After healing is complete your dentists in Richmond will place beautiful artificial teeth on top of the posts.

Tooth Replacement Care

Just like teeth and gums, your new dental implants need to be taken care of as well. Be sure to brush twice and floss once each day and schedule regular dental checkups with Inspired Smiles.

Your teeth may not be susceptible to decay, but your gums are still susceptible to gingivitis and periodontal disease. Take care of your gums because you can still be diagnosed with gum disease if you have dental implants.
