Your teeth are fixtures that you expect to see in your mouth every day from here on out. The fact that tooth loss is in unexpected event doesn’t mean that it is uncommon. In fact, statistics show that a fair number of adults will lose a tooth – or several, far before they may believe they should. Really, we do not need to view tooth loss as a normal part of aging. The team at Lerner & Lemongello work diligently to help our patients enjoy lasting oral health and beauty. At the same time, we have obtained the necessary skills that enable us to replace missing teeth in the most appropriate manner.
Today, the most efficient way to restore normal function is to look beyond tooth structure and notice the importance of a firm foundation. That would be your teeth roots. In lieu of roots, it is implants that supply you with the stability you need to feel comfortable in your smile. Information about dental implants should be obtained from your Palm Beach Gardens dentist. Otherwise, you may fall for misinformation such as:
- It is too costly to restore the smile with dental implants. Any form of restorative care comes at a cost. Also, all forms of restoration have a life span. It is important not to overlook the longevity of your new structure when assessing the cost-effectiveness of treatment. Dental implants are structures that integrate into the jawbone. As such, they can last decades. They can last a lifetime. There isn’t much more cost-effectiveness than that.
- You cannot count on dental implants. To believe that you cannot count on dental implants would be akin to thinking you cannot rely on your natural roots to stabilize your teeth. Natural roots and implants are supported by the same bone, which means that the primary factor in success is bone health. It is generally possible to preserve healthy bone tissue by taking care to prevent gum disease.
- Implant treatment results in a fake looking smile. Fortunately for patients of our Palm Beach area office, the restorations that top dental implants are created by experienced cosmetic dentists and ceramists who have honed their craft. The results of dental implant treatment don’t just look authentic, they also recreate the natural feel of your teeth.
