Are you missing teeth? You are not alone. Recent research shows that 69% of adults over the age of 35 are missing at least one permanent tooth. As we age, the risk of further tooth loss only increases. By age 74, nearly 26% of American adults are missing all of their natural teeth. A variety of causes can lead to tooth loss, including trauma, tooth decay, and even gum disease.
The biggest mistake you can make, however, is assuming that this is inevitable or that there is nothing you can do about it. Fortunately, if you have one or more missing teeth, your smile can still be restored to its former beauty. At By Design Dental, your Philadelphia implant dentists provide a breakthrough procedure to repair your smile. In today’s blog, we discuss the advantages of dental implants.
What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are small devices, similar in appearance to a screw that can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Implants can also be used to secure a dental bridge or even a full set of permanent dentures. Dental implants were designed to replace tooth roots and help preserve a patient’s facial structure and dental health.
Convenient, Natural Looking Restorations
At By Design Dental, we don’t want your budget or hectic schedule to prevent you from restoring your smile. In addition to offering convenient financing options, By Design Dental is one of the few practices that can complete every step of the implant process in-house. Instead of relying on other facilities or offsite labs, we employ a team of prosthodontists, restorative dentists, and oral surgeons under one roof. In some cases, this allows patients to receive their new restorations in a single visit.
Our team works hard to ensure your restorations look and function like natural teeth. This is why we use biocompatible materials. The titanium implant post allows the post to bond with bone tissue. The porcelain used to create the crowns added to the top of the implant mimics the translucent qualities of enamel. As a result, your new implant has the ability to blend seamlessly with your smile.
