Are you hiding your smile behind your hand or smiling with your mouth closed because you are embarrassed of your missing teeth? Missing teeth are more than just a cosmetic dental concern. Patients with missing teeth could suffer long term oral health consequences if they leave their missing teeth untreated. Apex Dental dentist Dr. Robert Gauthier offers the dental implant treatment in the comfort of his Northborough, MA dentist office.
Why Replace Missing Teeth?
Missing teeth, especially if they are in the “smile-zone” can be unsightly and embarrassing. Having missing teeth can diminish the quality of your life, or hold you back from living life to the fullest. But, missing teeth may also cause a whole spectrum of other concerns. Untreated, missing teeth can lead to bone deterioration, jaw recession, and increased chance of developing additional tooth loss and gum disease. Replacing your missing teeth is essential in maintaining your long term oral health. Many patients who do not replace their missing teeth may look prematurely aged and have a sunken in look to their face.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants act as a prosthetic root structure. The small titanium post is implanted into the jaw bone and stimulates natural bone regeneration. Dental implants are over 98% successful and can last a lifetime with proper oral hygiene. Implants can be used to replace one missing tooth or all of your missing teeth. Dr. Gauthier will help you determine what implant style is best for your oral health. Your implant could be covered with a dental crown, bridge or full denture depending on your personal needs and cosmetic goals. Dental implants allow for almost full chewing function and look and feel comfortable and natural.
