Missing teeth make it difficult to perform every day oral functions, such as chewing properly and speaking clearly. With innovative dental implants from LifeSmile Dental Care in Kirkwood, MO, residents don’t have to worry about the negative effects of missing teeth.
Kirkwood, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/05/2013 -- Missing teeth are often an inevitable part of life. Whether accidental trauma or advanced age is to blame, many people lose at least one permanent tooth over the course of their life. The most complicated part of losing a single tooth, or multiple teeth, is finding a suitable replacement option.
There are a number of different replacement options available to patients missing teeth. The most effective means of replacement are typically determined upon which tooth is missing. Replacements like dental bridges, partial denture and full dentures have been around for years. While these types of tooth replacements have proven useful over their lifetime, advances in dentistry now offer patients more permanent means of replacing their missing teeth.
Dental implants are an increasingly popular form of tooth replacement. These implants mimic the natural tooth and root system. A rod is implanted into the jaw bone and left to heal, creating a permanent and durable connection with the bone. Once this rod has developed a connection, an abutment, or artificial tooth is attached to the rod. The abutment is typically covered with a crown to ensure its longevity and attractive appearance.
LifeSmile Dental Care is just one of the many dental practices now offering dental implants. Dental implants can restore the appearance of a smile, as well as restore all oral functioning, like chewing and speech. With other replacement options, such as dentures, the patients must remain wary of certain foods, or ill-fitting bases. With dental implants, every patient is free to carry on their day-to-day activities, undisturbed and worry-free.
Not only does LifeSmile Dental Care offer this dental implant procedure, but they are also more than qualified to educate their patients about all tooth replacement options. Once all the pros and cons of each option have been weighed, many patients find themselves opting for dental implants. No other replacement device or procedure has provided the kind of benefits that dental implants deliver. This is why so many dental practices are adding this particular procedure to the list of services they offer.
