Unlike dental bridges or dentures, a dental implant functions the same as your natural teeth and helps prevent future bone loss.
When you have a missing tooth or teeth, the biting forces change on the remaining teeth. Your remaining teeth can shift and begin to extrude out of their socket, ultimately resulting in further tooth loss.
Also, it is hard to clean and reach teeth that have shifted, increasing your chances of gum disease.
Dental Implants are thin metal screws, usually made of titanium, that are inserted into the jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth or teeth.
Whether you have multiple teeth missing or just one tooth missing, dental implants may be right for you. According to the AAID, only 10% of all US Dentists can place dental implants and have certification to do so. Dr. Dhayni received certification from the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID).
