Fishers’ Permanent Solution for Missing Teeth
Sometimes, people mistakenly think that if they are missing a tooth in the back of their mouth that isn’t visible when they smile, that they don’t necessarily need to replace it. However, missing teeth can cause oral health problems that extend beyond cosmetic appearance.
Healthy teeth that neighbor the gap left behind by missing teeth can shift, unbalancing your bite and causing bone deterioration over the long term. Also, healthy teeth have to compensate for lost teeth, which increases the stress on teeth when you bite.
While there are many options to replace missing teeth, dental implants are an ideal solution for patients who want the closest-to-natural restoration option. Dental implants are a permanent solution, and look and function just like your real teeth. They can replace a single tooth or many missing teeth, and help promote oral health by stopping healthy teeth from shifting.
At Simply Dental, Dr. Clauss can both place and restore your dental implants. That means you can have the entire process completed by the team you trust in the office you’re most comfortable in. We don’t send you to a different oral surgeon for implant placement, making the whole treatment more convenient for you.
Dr. Clauss will be with you every step of the way, from surgery to restoration. First, a titanium post is inserted into your jaw, fusing to the bone during healing. This post acts like the roots of your natural teeth, which is why it stops your bone from atrophy, and will be used to hold a customized crown restoration.
We use cone-beam CT technology to find the areas of your jaw where the bone is the strongest. In cases of single implant restorations, cone-beam scans help us find accurate placing.
You’ll be amazed at how great dental implants can be. And when properly cared for, they can last through a lifetime of beautiful smiles.
