Despite remarkable advancements in preventative dentistry and oral health education, millions of Americans have missing teeth. While traditional bridges and dentures remain viable options for many, they are not always the preferred choice. What’s more is that bridges and dentures require a few healthy teeth to serve as anchors for the restoration, and a large majority of individuals do not have these teeth. Yet, there is a cure-all for missing teeth, as well as for those that would like to wear dentures and bridges with ultimate stability—dental implants. When it comes to replacing missing teeth and creating a natural-looking appearance, dental implants are the gold standard.
As reported by WebMD, dental implants are replacement tooth roots that provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are designed to match a patient’s natural teeth. Because dental implants fuse with a patient’s bone, they not only feel like natural teeth, they function like them too. This means that individuals can speak and eat with confidence, and they can practice good oral health without the hassle of removing dentures or dealing with messy adhesives.
Computer-Guided Implant Placement In One Day
At Precision Digital Dentistry in Bridgewater, Dr. Joyce Guojun Ma places a high value on digital dentistry and next-level techniques in order to provide patients with the ultimate in implant dentistry. Thus, Precision Digital Dentistry proudly offers computer-guided dental implant placement in one day for patients. Remarkably, this eliminates the need for multiple visits and prolonged waiting.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth. Once the titanium post is inserted into a patient’s jawbone, it begins to fuse with the patient’s existing bone. While this ensures the stability of the implant, it also prevents bone loss and even protects against the appearance of premature aging such as sagging jowls and cheeks.
With a track record of superior success in implant placement, Dr. Ma invites you to contact Precision Digital Dentistry today if you are considering the advanced option of dental implants.
