When many people think of tooth loss, they immediately think of the aesthetic issues associated with an incomplete smile. It’s certainly true that tooth loss creates an undesirable visual effect, the truth is that tooth loss creates problems that extend far beyond when we can readily see.

Maintaining optimal oral health requires all of the parts of your smile to work together harmoniously. When one part of your smile is suddenly gone, you may, quite suddenly, deal with a chain reaction of oral health problems. That is why it is so critical that patients suffering from tooth loss seek timely treatment to rebuild their smiles.

Our Medford dental implant dentists use the latest technologies to help our patients restore their smiles quickly and completely. We have seen how powerful and transformative dental implant treatment can be.

Dental implants are unique in the world of restorative dentistry because these replacement teeth actually have roots that extend into the patient’s jawbone. Remember, when you lose a tooth you don’t just lose the visible crown, you lose the tooth root as well.

A dental implant root is actually a titanium screw. Titanium has the ability to bond with natural bone tissue through a process called osseointegration. So, once your implant root is in place, it will start to become an integral part of your dental structure.

The titanium root of the dental implant is invisible—it sits below the gum tissue. The visible portion of your replacement tooth is called the crown. This portion of your restoration is crafted from high-quality ceramic, and customized to suit your aesthetic needs.

Patients love dental implants because these replacement teeth look exceptionally natural, and function optimally. They are designed to hold up to the wear and tear of daily life. Once treatment is complete, you won’t have to alter your eating or drinking habits, and you’ll be able to jump back in to your normal routine.

If you are dealing with tooth loss, the absolute best thing that you can do is to seek out a treatment solution ASAP. Don’t let untreated tooth loss negatively affect your smile for years to come.
