Why Should I Replace my Missing Teeth?

Missing teeth pose a number of serious oral health issues. When a tooth is missing, bite tension is altered – a factor that can result in uneven tooth wear, excessive damage to remaining teeth, and additional tooth loss. What’s more, teeth adjacent to those missing will eventually slide into the empty space, further altering bite tension and strength.

Are Dental Implants Permanent?

Dental implants are unique among tooth replacement options in that they address the missing root, not the tooth itself. Inserted directly into bone, dental implants undergo the process of osseointegration, whereby they become accepted as a new part of the body. Once this process is complete and barring trauma or future issues such as advanced periodontitis, your dental implants will be a permanent part of your smile.

Why Dental Implants?

SSRIs and Implant Dentistry

A six-year study conducted by the International and American Associations for Dental Research has found that patients taking SSRIs experience dental implant failure at more than twice the rate of those who are not. The study, conducted on 490 patients with a total of 916 dental implants, found the rate of implant failure just above 10.5 percent for patients taking some of the most common antidepressants. Among patients not taking SSRIs, the rate of implant failure was closer to 4.5 percent.

Advice from Your Bergenfield Dentist: The Importance of Dental Hygiene

There are obvious reasons to maintain proper dental hygiene such as keeping your breath its freshest and your teeth their brightest. However, fresh breath and white teeth are far from the most important reasons to maintain optimal oral health. In fact, many of the reasons dental hygiene is so important have nothing to do with your teeth at all.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are the strongest and most reliable form of tooth replacement. Because they are secured directly into your jawbone, the dental implants placed by Dumont, New Jersey dentist Dr. Howard Perlmutter offer advantages over other forms of tooth replacement such as eliminating the risk of slipping or falling out. In addition, dental implants do not rely on adjacent teeth for support and produce a full restoration of strength, function, and appearance to your smile.

Why are Dental Implants Made of Titanium?

Dental implants are by far the best solution for missing teeth. The implant itself is placed in the jaw line and acts as a replacement for the missing tooth root, and is then covered with a dental crown to match your natural teeth.

The material used to make the dental implant is titanium. This is due to titanium’s beneficial qualities, which make it the best choice to use in the dental implant procedure.
