Tooth loss leaves you with empty space instead of the full smile you used to have. Beyond the obvious cosmetic deficit, though, there are other drawbacks. Your chewing may not be as efficient, and your other teeth on that jaw can shift. If that happens, you will probably experience discomfort and your jaws could become misaligned. It’s easy to see how replacing your lost tooth or teeth is essential. At Wayne Dental Care, it gives us great pleasure to offer implants as the most advanced and beneficial way of dealing with tooth loss.
What makes our dental implants in Wayne NJ such a great choice? Well, with old-fashioned traditional bridges and dentures, your teeth are restored and you can speak and chew, but there are some less than ideal aspects related to these methods. A fixed bridge requires that your two surrounding teeth are filed down in order to place anchors on them to secure the bridge. A removable set of dentures does not affect your surrounding teeth, but does necessitate the use of adhesive between it and your gums. The adhesive can be messy to use. More concerning, your dentures can still move around, impacting your confidence in them. Bridges and dentures are surface solutions. They lay on top of your gums. But real teeth have a root beneath the gum’s surface, and that keeps the tooth strong and reliable. Our dental implants in Wayne NJ are constructed the same way. Beneath your gums is a titanium post that is placed surgically in your jaw. Your bone tissue grows around the post and fuses with it, making for a replacement root. A tooth-colored crown is cemented to the top, providing a dependable and long-lasting new tooth.
