Are you hiding your smile? Millions of people across the U.S. struggle with the effects of tooth loss, so you are not alone. Traditional solutions such as dentures and dental bridges can alleviate some issues associated with missing teeth but are often found to be short-term solutions for a permanent concern. If you feel embarrassed by missing teeth or are tired of dealing with a dental bridge or loose-fitting dentures, Dr. Richard D. Weigand in Spokane, WA can help. He provides long-lasting dental implant tooth replacement.
Spokane, WA dentist explains the dental implant procedure
Tooth loss may be caused by severe periodontal disease, bone loss, root resorption, advanced tooth decay, or extractions. Dental implants are a life-like permanent solution for patients with a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth, or a full arch of upper or lower teeth gone.
A biocompatible titanium post is placed into a prepared site in the jawbone. It mimics the root of a missing tooth and serves as a solid foundation for the tooth restoration. A stand-alone implant is topped with a porcelain crown to restore appearance and function. Implants can also be used to anchor a dental bridge (without need to grind down healthy adjacent teeth), or to secure a full denture with amazing comfort and stability.
There is another reason dental implants are the best way to replace missing teeth. Implants promote healthy stimulation of bone, comparable to the root of a natural tooth. That helps to maintain the appearance of your facial structure.
