If you’re missing a tooth, you have two options: replace it or don’t replace it. Dr. Block recommends of course that you choose to replace it. Why? If you don’t replace your tooth, you face all kinds of complications with your diet and appearance. Recent studies show that a missing tooth greatly increases your chances of losing more teeth.
Restorative Dentistry gives you several options available for replacing a missing tooth. Research shows that dental implants are the only sure way to prevent jawbone deterioration and additional tooth loss.
Dental Implant Surgery
Dental implant surgery is a procedure that replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function much like real ones. Dental implant surgery can offer a welcome alternative to ill-fitting dentures or bridgework.
How dental implant surgery is performed depends on the type of implant and the condition of your jawbone. But all dental implant surgery occurs in stages and involves several procedures. The major benefit from implants is solid support for your new teeth — a process that requires the bone to heal tightly around the implant. Because this healing requires time, the process can take many months.
