Tooth loss is a serious issue that impacts your entire quality of life. No matter if you lose a single tooth or you lose all of your teeth, it becomes incredibly difficult to bite and chew, hard to speak, and the quality of your smile deteriorates. Under your gum line, tooth loss also leads to bone loss in your jaw, which alters the shape of your jawbone as well as the alignment of your bite and the shape of your face. Replacing missing teeth is essential for giving you back your life. At Simon K. Choyee, DDS, Inc., we can replace missing teeth with dental implants.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a modern alternative to traditional dentures and bridges, providing you with a unique treatment for replacing your missing teeth. This treatment uses small titanium posts, which are surgically implanted into your jaw. As you heal from surgery, your bone naturally fuses to the posts, stabilizing and strengthening them within your jaw to become replacement roots. Once you have fully healed from surgery, the posts are then used to provide support for your dental restorations.
Types of Dental Implants
Dental implants are incredibly versatile. They can be used in many different situations, providing solutions for patients with a variety of different needs. Types of dental implants include:
