Fremont area dentist offers dental implant treatment for tooth replacement
Tooth replacement is important for patients who want to restore the function and beauty of their smiles. It must be done to avoid problems such as shifting teeth after a tooth has been lost or extracted. There are several ways to obtain a more beautiful smile after tooth loss at StarBrite Dental. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala offers conventional dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants.
Dental implants have been gaining popularity as one of the most desirable options for tooth replacement. This is because of the many benefits they provide. Not only do they replace one or more teeth, but they also can last a lifetime. They use the bone to support them and provide the strength necessary to function properly. Many patients love how versatile they are, and therefore consider them the treatment of choice.
Dental implants are made of titanium. They are small artificial tooth roots the dentist places into the bone of the jaw. This stimulates the process of osseointegration in which the bone wraps around the restoration and fuses to it, which ensures optimal strength and stability. The dental implant is then restored on top in one of several ways. A dental crown may be placed over the abutment to replace a single tooth. A dental bridge may be supported by an implant, which avoids alteration of healthy teeth. Other patients may use full dentures along with their dental implants for optimum stability and strength.
