Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants
Discover all the unique and amazing benefits of getting dental implants.
Are you dealing with tooth loss? Are you looking for a treatment option that will as closely resemble a natural tooth as possible? If so, then you’ve come to the right place. Our Thorp, WI, dentist Dr. Jon LaFlamme can tell you how dental implants might be the right solution for you.
There is a reason dental implants have become such a popular way for people to replace missing teeth. After all, there is truly no other restoration that functions or looks just like real teeth the way implants do. In fact, implants are designed to take the place of your missing tooth’s roots. Why the roots? Because the roots actually play a more important role in your oral health than you might think.
The roots are what stimulate the jawbone, which helps the jawbone stay strong; however, when you lose a tooth the jawbone no longer gets the amount of stimulation it needs to maintain itself. With untreated tooth loss comes eventual bone loss, as well. As the jawbone begins to lose density it can negatively affect the shape of your face as well, leading to issues like sunken cheeks.
Luckily, by turning to our Thorp, WI, general dentist right away after losing a tooth we can help you determine the best course of treatment to get a full smile back even if dental implants aren’t the best option for you; however, if you are in good health and are an adult who is missing one or more teeth then chances are good that you could be an ideal candidate for implants.
That’s right; implants can help you regain a complete smile again even if you are missing all of your teeth. “How?” you might be wondering. Well, if you are missing several or all of your teeth then all we have to do is place multiple implants along the jawbone. Then full or partial dentures can be secured in place on top of the implants. This can be a wonderful option for someone who already has dentures who might not be satisfied with the way they fit or feel. Dental implants can mimic the function and form of natural teeth in a way no other tooth replacement can.
