Lost a tooth and not sure whether to choose implants or dentures? At Curtis Couch D.D.S in Thousand Oaks we have you covered…
Tooth loss can occur for a wide variety of reasons, for instance trauma to the face or even periodontal disease can cause tooth loss. Many Americans do not understand the full repercussions of missing teeth, and we at Curtis Couch D.D.S in Thousand Oaks are dedicated to making sure all our patients are fully educated on the debilitating effects a missing tooth can have on the delicate ecosystem that is your mouth.
Missing teeth can seriously affect the harmony of your mouth…
Tooth loss can not only affect the esthetics of your smile, but it can also affect how you talk, eat and generally how your mouth functions. Missing teeth can cause neighboring teeth to shift in an attempt to close the gap – causing crooked and unaligned teeth that are more difficult to clean. Tooth loss can also cause a higher risk of periodontal disease, as the gaps left by missing teeth are more difficult to maintain and therefore allow more bacteria to accumulate.
Why choose these as a dental restoration?
Dental implants are essentially small titanium screws that are surgically implanted into the jawbone as a replacement tooth root. Over a period of months the bone will fuse with the screw, a process called Osseo-integration, to form a solid anchor point for your new tooth. The dental implant procedure is revolutionary to the dental profession, as it allows us to supply a permanent solution to your tooth loss.
Tooth implants preserve facial structure
This dental restoration is a great choice if you are worried about your appearance, as implants help to preserve your facial structure by completing your smile. By preserving your facial structure they also help to prevent any bone deterioration which is commonly found in those with missing teeth.
