Dental Implants: The Safe, Permanent Solution for Missing Teeth in Scarsdale, NY
As we get older, it becomes more commonplace for us to lose teeth. However, that does not make it easier to deal with the reality of a missing tooth or several missing teeth. For each missing tooth in your mouth, you run the risk of:
- Losing more teeth due to further bone deterioration
- Experiencing teeth that shift or drift out of place
- Having to go on a restrictive diet of softer foods
- Losing your ability to speak clearly
These are all serious problems that can be remedied with dental implants.
How Dental Implants Help Patients Achieve Better Health
When you work with Dr. Paul Snisky and Dr. Stephen Stein to get a tooth implant, you will be taking the steps toward better oral health and hygiene. Dental implants act like your own teeth. They are permanently embedded into your jaw, which gives them the ability to “massage” the jaw bone as natural teeth would. This keeps bone from deteriorating, and keeps your smile looking great!
In addition, dental implants never need to be specially cleaned or removed, and only require the same care as your natural teeth. They will stay in your mouth for a lifetime. No wonder so many adults with a missing tooth turn to this type of tooth replacement procedure.
Dental Implants Work for Multiple Missing Teeth
If you have numerous missing teeth, you may still be a good candidate for dental implants. Though the plan for surgery to fill in the areas of your mouth that require tooth implants will differ if you have multiple missing teeth, you will be able to enjoy all the benefits after a few months.
