Restoring with Dental Implants
Immediate replacement of missing teeth with dental implants is strongly recommended to prevent abnormal tooth movement and future oral health issues. In addition, missing teeth may impair your ability to chew properly and speak clearly. By providing patients with the benefits of dental implants, Kent Wildern, DDS can enhance your quality of life by eliminating the discomfort and inconvenience associated with removable dentures.
Unlike dentures, dental implants actually become part of the jawbone and adjacent architecture supporting your real teeth. In fact, patients opting for dental implants instead of dentures will never experience the chronic gum irritation often experienced by long-time denture wearers, not to mention the embarrassing looseness of ill-fitting dentures.
With years of experience replacing lost teeth using dental implantology in Grand Rapids, Kent Wildern, DDS urges people missing two or more teeth to consider the benefits of dental implants. In addition to aesthetically enhancing your smile, dental implants also inhibit bone loss that may occur because of losing mass in the jaw. While one missing tooth will not substantially change the skeletal structure of the face, several missing teeth affects jaw mass because teeth are an important component of the jawbone. Moreover, missing molars, premolars and canine teeth may accelerate muscle sagging and cause your face to appear thin and sunken. Receiving teeth implants, means you will have those unattractive gaps filled in your teeth, prevent the accumulation of erosive bacteria in these gaps and stop the progression of facial muscle weakness.
