For many years, people used to replace their missing teeth with dentures and bridges. While these options are more cost-effective, they can create quite a few problems in the long run. Long-term denture wearers report that their dentures become loose over time, while dental bridges require grinding down healthy tooth enamel for better support.
Since the introduction of dental implants in mainstream dentistry in the late 1960s, they have gradually developed into a viable tooth replacement option, which is constantly improving. Dental implants in Camden are strong, sturdy and reliable and can accommodate your individual needs. Whether you have a single tooth missing or many gaps in your smile, our dentists at Ace Dental will help you find the implant solution that is right for you.
The importance of replacing your missing teeth
Patients with missing teeth fall into two categories. Those who are concerned about the gaps in their smile and want to replace them and those who are prepared to live with them. Replacing your missing teeth is not just a matter of aesthetics. Missing teeth can cause many oral health issues including jawbone deterioration and further tooth loss. Moreover, when you start cutting out certain food categories because you are unable to chew properly, then you will end up missing important nutrients in your diet. Not to mention that gaps in your smile will also lead to the improper growth of the rest of your teeth.
How can dental implants help?
Dental implants in Camden can help you avoid all of your missing teeth problems, because they address the problem at the root. Unlike bridges and dentures that simply cover the gaps, implants are embedded into the jawbone and act as replacement tooth roots. When completed with lifelike restorations, dental implants look, feel and function just like real teeth. More importantly, they protect the jawbone from collapsing and encourage the growth on new bone tissue.
