Dr. Frank Aiello, cosmetic dentist in Irwin, PA is helping adult patients who have experienced permanent tooth loss prevent the further deterioration of jaw bone and gum tissues using the latest dental implant technology. Dental implants have proven to help preserve surrounding jaw bone and gum tissue just as a natural tooth would, preventing the further resorption of bone and gum tissues that often can lead to additional tooth loss.
Dental implants are some of the latest technology available for restorative dentistry, but offer far more benefits than just improving appearance. Dental implants mimic the structure of a natural tooth, making them just as strong as natural teeth and preserving oral health just as a natural tooth would as well.
“When an adult experience the loss of a permanent tooth, the bone and tissues that used to support that tooth are no longer used and start to diminish, just like muscles in the body do if not used regularly,” said Dr. Frank Aiello, dental implants dentist in Irwin, PA. “Over time, this problem of diminished bone and gum tissues can lead to the loss of surrounding teeth and could prevent patients from being able to get restorative appliances due to minimal bone density. Dental implants really are the next best option to having natural teeth, and in some instances, they can be even better than natural teeth.”
Dental implants are completed by surgically inserting a small metal stud, or screw, into the jawbone to fill the void of where the missing tooth once was. This dental implant acts just as a natural tooth root would, and is given several weeks to naturally fuse to the surrounding jaw bone. Once the implant has healed, an artificial crown is attached to it that mimics the look and function of the visible portion of a natural tooth.
Dr. Aiello encourages adults who have experienced the loss of one or more permanent teeth to consider the benefits of dental implants sooner than later. If the portions of unused jawbone and gum tissues are left void for an extended period of time, they may become too deteriorated to support an implant. In that case, bone and gum grafting might be necessary to properly place a new implant.
As a completed unit, dental implants look, feel, and function just like a natural tooth. Unlike with partial dentures or bridges, dental implant patients are free to eat their favorite foods and have virtually no chewing restrictions. They are also able to brush and floss their new dental implants just as they would natural teeth. When placed properly by a certified dentist like Dr. Aiello, dental implants are designed to last the lifetime of the patient.
