WE KNOW THAT YOU WILL FEEL RIGHT AT HOME
A Routine Office Procedure
York & Bay Dental Office can insert dental implants in a relatively simple procedure that is not any more inconvenient than a tooth extraction. Fabricated from strong materials compatible with your body, dental implants are surgically inserted into the bone of the jaw to replace the root of a missing tooth. An artificial tooth is attached to the implant, and the healing process generally requires about 3-6 months.
A Chain Reaction
Because teeth require each other for support, a missing tooth can change your biting structure so much so that the teeth next to the space will begin to shift. Once this shift occurs, the tooth will not have anything to chew against and it may start to protrude out of its socket. This can eventually lead to additional tooth loss. When your bite changes, you can do damage to your jaw joint, which in turn makes cleaning your mouth more difficult. If you allow harmful plaque and tartar to collect in hard-to-reach places, you can cause cavities, permanent bone loss, and gum disease.
Prevent Ongoing Bone Loss
In addition to implants, we also use bridges to solve missing tooth problems. However, implants prevent ongoing bone loss that occurs once a tooth has been lost, while bridges do not. Implants also don’t affect the teeth next to the space where the missing tooth is like bridges do. Implants and porcelain crowns can give you an attractive appearance and full chewing function, all while preventing bone loss.
