dental implantsAre you missing one tooth, or even multiple teeth?  Have you been hiding your smile, but are ready to bring it back to life?  Dental restoration is possible with the use of dental implants to bring your smile back to life.  While traditional dentures and bridges have been effective options for restoring missing teeth for many years, dental implants are increasingly becoming the preferred solution for tooth loss and the only treatment available that replaces the entire missing tooth.  Dental implants are effective, safe and permanent, restoring the mouth as closely as possible to its natural state.
 
 

The Consequences of Missing Teeth

 
 
Teeth can be lost for many reasons including gum disease, decay, root canal failure and excessive wear and tear. The loss of missing teeth can have serious consequences on a patient’s appearance, health and ability to perform normal functions. Even the loss of a single tooth can result in many repercussions. Common effects of tooth loss include:
 
 
  • Change in jaw structure
     
  • Shifting teeth caused by gaps left by the missing teeth
     
  • Change in the contour of the face, resulting in an older, sunken appearance
     
  • Difficulty chewing and biting certain foods, including hard fruits and vegetables
     
  • Poor self-esteem and lack of confidence during social and professional situations
 
 

The Benefits of Replacing Missing Teeth with Implants

 
 
Dental implants, used to replace one tooth or multiple teeth, are root substitutes that are securely placed to simulate the root of a pre-existing tooth. Implants are designed to replicate your natural teeth while restoring function and preventing further decay, dental diseases and bone loss.
 
With so many benefits, dental implants have become the clear treatment of choice for Pittsburgh patients missing one, a few, or all of their teeth.
 
 
Advantages of Dental Implants include:
 
 
  • Improved Appearance Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth—so natural looking no one will notice you have undergone dental restoration.
  • Durability Dental implants rival the strength and function of natural teeth. With proper care, implants can last a lifetime.
  • Tooth-Saving Implants can support themselves and won't alter or impact healthy, neighboring teeth. By filling in the space of a missing tooth, implants protect the remaining teeth from unwanted shifting.
  • Comfort Compared to traditional, removable dentures, secure dental implants are secure and comfortable.
  • Renewed Self-Confidence As a result of preserved bone, improved appearance, comfort, health and function, patients can once again smile, eat and speak with confidence.
