Statistics show that approximately 20 million American currently wear dentures in place of missing permanent teeth as a result of injury, decay, or aging. Dr. James Kiehl, cosmetic and general dentist in Nashua, NH recently introduced dental implants as a better alternative to denture patients who experience pain, discomfort, or other associated health problems due to their removable oral appliances.
While removable dentures have traditionally been the most common method to restore tooth function after the loss of permanent teeth, they often become more of a hindrance than help due to the bonding agents required as well as limitations they place on foods that can be ingested. With dental implants, Dr. Kiehl can now provide these patients with strong, permanent teeth that will last a lifetime and require minimal maintenance.
“Dental implants are really revolutionizing the way our denture patients are able to go about their daily lives,” said Dr. James Kiehl, dental implants dentist in Nashua, NH. “With dental implants, these patients look better, feel better, and have the ability to eat—and correctly chew—virtually any foods they desire, which has a positive impact on their health as well.”
Dental implants utilize a small titanium stud that is implanted in the jaw bone and is given time to heal and fuse with the bone. Once the healing process has occurred, Dr. Kiehl then creates and attaches porcelain crowns to the titanium studs. The new prosthetic tooth looks, feels, and acts like a natural tooth but in many cases is even stronger and is not susceptible to decay.
With dental implants, Dr. Kiehl is able to replace one tooth, several teeth, or entire upper or lower arches of teeth, which is of most benefit to denture patients. Dr. Kiehl works closely with each patient to design a custom smile that has the shape, size, and color of teeth they desire.
Dr. Kiehl works alongside three other qualified dentists at Nashua Family Dentistry, in addition to an experienced team of assistants and hygienists. Together, they provide a wide range of dental services in addition to cosmetic work including periodontics, endodontics, and prosthodontics.
Dr. Kiehl completed his undergraduate degree at the prestigious Johns Hopkins University and subsequently received his dental education from Boston University. He is also a recipient of an M.B.A. degree from Boston University. Dr. Kiehl is known for his use of the latest state-of-the-art dental technology to provide his patients with optimal dental care.
