The Problem of Missing Teeth
Teeth can be lost for a number of reasons like trauma, disease, infection, or injury. According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, “More than 30 million Americans are missing all of their teeth in one or both jaws.” That is a startling number. Not having your teeth affects your confidence and quality of life, and can drastically impact your oral and overall health. Without a stable bite, you cannot eat the foods you love and may not be getting the proper nutrition necessary for healthy living.
Do you avoid smiling because of unsightly gaps in your teeth? Often, traditional forms of tooth replacement like dental bridges or dentures come with complications, and need to be repaired and replaced over the years. We offer a solution to these problems. Dr. Samuel DeAngelo can restore your beautiful smile with dental implants and implant supported dentures.
The dental implant post is made of decay-resistant titanium and is surgically placed in your jaw bone where you have a missing tooth. The post will integrate with your jaw bone very much like a natural tooth root is fused to the bone. This allows for an extremely stable foundation for the abutment that is placed over the post, supporting the crown portion of the implant. A dental crown is then placed on top of the abutment.
