What would it feel like to walk into a restaurant and order whatever you like? How would it feel to smile freely again? These are the considerations you make when you live with a missing tooth. The daily activities that most of us take for granted become challenging. Dr. Aman Sabharwal has good news for you! Dental implants may be a solution for you, and here you can learn more about the benefits of dental implants in Ashburn.
Missing Teeth and Oral Health
Missing teeth affect your confidence, however did you know that they also affect your oral health? When your root is missing, your jawbone has nothing to support and it will begin to deteriorate. When your tooth is missing, your healthy teeth begin to shift. This causes problems with the alignment of your bite, and also puts your teeth at risk for fractures and other damage. It’s a good idea to replace a missing tooth in order to prevent more tooth loss.
What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are by far the best tooth replacement option that dentistry has to offer, and the secret to their success lies in the fact that they replace both your root and your tooth. A biocompatible titanium post is surgically paced into your bone, and over a healing period it naturally integrates with your bone. This creates a firm foundation for your new tooth, which is a customized porcelain crown.
Implants are a very reliable treatment, boasting a 95% success rate. They also offer longevity because with the right home care routine and regular dental checkups, they can potentially last a lifetime. You’ll find that brushing and flossing is as simple as it was with your natural tooth, making implants easy to care for.
Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Dr. Sabharwal can determine if implants will work for you with a thorough examination and x-rays. Implants do require two things to be successful and those are:
- Enough healthy bone structure to support the implant
- The patient is in good overall health
If implants are not in your future, Dr. Sabharwal is happy to discuss other options for tooth replacement with you. Don’t let missing teeth hold you back from living the life you deserve any longer! Contact our office today to learn more about your options.
