If you have never lost teeth before and are faced with getting new ones, you may be wondering which kind of replacement teeth to go for and how much the various kinds differ in what they have to offer. At Ace Dental, we can help you go through your various options and find the one that works best for you. What we are seeing at our clinic is that more and more people are opting to have new teeth attached to dental implants. In Camden, the rise in popularity of dental implants is impressive and their use has reached a tipping point throughout the country.
Maybe that’s because it’s the baby boomer generation who are now getting their teeth replaced, rather than their parents. Gone are the days of ‘put up and shut up’ and now the seniors are increasingly made up of people who are used to innovation and to having things that work properly. Maybe you are one of them. Maybe you are even younger. Whatever age you are, you are probably considering getting dental implants in Camden to replace your lost teeth.
Most people hang onto their teeth for longer these days, so if you have lost a tooth, it may well be just a single tooth you are looking to replace. That’s a good idea, and easily done with dental implants in Camden.
Stop the topple
When you lose teeth, and do nothing to replace them, the neighbouring teeth can, over time, topple into the gap and even fall out. Having something there in the gaps stops this happening. You can have crowns on a bridge, a partial denture or a dental implant to prevent this problem.
Impede the recede
Another thing that happens when a tooth is gone is that jawbone surrounding the now-empty socket starts to dissolve itself and the gum recedes. The only tooth replacement method that prevents this is dental implants. It may not seem such a big deal if you have only lost one tooth, but if more go, you may find that replacing them with implants requires extra treatment to rebuild your dissolved bone.
