Dr. Schramm understands how missing teeth can take away your confident smile. But it can also affect the strength, density, and stability of your jawbone. When you lose your teeth and their supporting roots, the surrounding jaw bone no longer has a purpose and begins to disintegrate. If this process is allowed to continue, your jaw will weaken and destroy your youthful facial structure.
It may not always be possible to keep your natural teeth, because of dental injury, periodontitis, severe tooth decay, or root canal infections. However, dental implants can restore and replace your natural teeth and roots. These tiny titanium posts are fully biocompatible. Once placed, your jaw bone will fuse around the implant, to fully maintain your strong and healthy bone structure.
The dental implant can be capped by a porcelain crown or a full or partial denture, to achieve the look and feel of your natural teeth. Dental implants can be used to anchor just one tooth, or a complete upper or lower set of teeth. Dental implants completely eliminate the possibility of embarrassment or bone recession from missing teeth, loose fitting dentures, or worn down dental bridges.
Dental implants are fast becoming the most popular solution for replacing missing teeth. You can smile confidently once again after having your dental implants fully placed and restored at Schramm Dentistry.
