When you are missing one or multiple teeth, it greatly impacts your life. Daily activities that you took for granted become more difficult, such as chewing and eating the foods you would normally enjoy. Now, you may also feel self-conscious or embarrassed about talking to other people for fear they might see your compromised smile.
Luckily, Dr. James Striebel can help you reclaim both your confidence and your oral health with comprehensive implant dentistry that we can complete from start to finish in our Huber Heights dental office.
Dental implants offer benefits that go beyond just restoring your smile because they actually protect your oral health since both your root and tooth are replaced. There is no other tooth replacement option that replaces both.
This is important because when a natural root is lost, your jawbone begins to deteriorate since it has nothing left to support. While this may not seem very significant, it can actually affect neighboring teeth and even change the appearance of your facial structure giving you an older, more sunken appearance.
Choosing dental implants to restore your smile offers other advantages that include:
A dental implant is capable of restoring not only a single tooth, but also multiple teeth when a few implants are used to support prosthetics such as a dental bridge, partial, or denture.
If only one tooth is missing, your implant restoration will be a customized porcelain crown. It is designed by Dr. Striebel to naturally complement your smile.
For multiple missing teeth that are adjacent, dental implants in Huber Heights can be used to support a dental bridge. A partial fills in the missing spaces with prosthetic teeth that when combined with dental implants will also protect the health of your jawbone by keeping it stimulated.
Missing most or all of your teeth can be discouraging. An implant supported denture may be the solution you’re looking for to provide a secure and stable fit for your denture, which allows you to restore your smile.
A few carefully placed implants are able to support a denture that has been designed to “snap” into them. Denture wearers can enjoy improved stability so there is no movement or slippage when they talk or eat when they use dental implants to support their appliance. Implants also promote bone health, which ensures longevity for your denture.
The cost for dental implants varies with each unique individual’s needs. The first place to start is by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Striebel. Your dentist in Huber Heights will take into consideration how many implants and what type of restoration is needed for your case when determining the cost of your dental implants.
The cost for dental implants may seem higher up front than other replacement options; however, in the long-term they are the most cost effective investment you can make in your oral health because of their potential to last for a lifetime.
