Learn more about this long-term restoration and how it can replace your missing teeth.
Dental technology is advancing all the time, so that our Racine, WI, dentists Dr. David Defurio and Dr. Stephen Norovich can replace a missing tooth with dental implants. While the goal is always to maintain your own natural teeth, when tooth loss happens it’s good to know that you have an alternative.
Dental implants come with their own unique benefits, as compared to other tooth replacement options. Some of the benefits you’ll enjoy include:
A Natural, Long-Term Replacement
It might be hard to believe but you can get a replacement tooth that both looks and functions just like the real thing. No one will be able to tell the difference between your implant and your natural teeth. Plus, its longevity and durability means that it can last several decades with the proper care.
Enjoy All of Your Favorite Foods
We know how tough it can be to eat all the foods that you love when you are missing one or more teeth. While those with dentures may find that their artificial teeth shift and move around with eating certain foods, dental implants will stay firmly in place.
Prevent Jawbone Loss
Many people don’t realize the repercussions that go along with untreated tooth loss. In fact, once a tooth is extracted or falls out, the roots of the tooth are no longer present to stimulate the jawbone. If the jawbone isn’t getting proper stimulation it will deteriorate. The longer you leave your tooth loss untreated the more the jawbone will break down. The only way to prevent this is to get a dental implant, which will provide the same stimulation necessary to prevent bone loss.
Feel Confident Again
Our Racine, WI, restorative dentists know the toll that tooth loss can take on your appearance. You may hide your smile from those around you or cancel social engagements because you feel embarrassed. Why do that when we can help you get that full smile back?
