Dental Implant Patients Eating Together With Their False Teeth in Pittsburgh, PA

For National False Teeth Day, Get Yourself Dental Implants Instead!

There are many different reasons why tooth loss in Pittsburgh, PA can occur for dental patients – including advanced gum disease and trauma. Believe it or not, if you suffer from tooth loss you’re not alone. With over 178 million affected, tooth loss is extremely common among U.S. adults.

But What Are Your Options?

While dentures were the preferred method of replacing missing teeth for many years, patients are now realizing the long term functional and cosmetic benefits of dental implants. Dental implants are highly regarded as the ideal tooth replacement solution, in many cases.

Are Dental Implants Better Than Dentures?

While dentures and dental bridge are common solutions for missing teeth, they don’t offer patients the same advantages. With dental implants, both the roots and crowns of teeth are replaced resulting in greater stability, longevity, and cosmetic appeal. With proper care, the results are permanent, cosmetic and the closest to natural teeth you can achieve.

For patients currently using dentures as tooth replacement dental devices, there may be an experience of slipping or instability. Dentures are often unreliable when it comes to offering consistency in a stabilized foundation for daily activities. However, this issue can be remedied with the use of dental implants or other options, including implant supported dentures. This option offers a more stable and functional environment for your dentures, providing a beautiful new smile for you and highlights the diversity of dental implants.

If there is bone or tooth loss that prevents the placement of dentures, bone grafting procedures can be used along with dental sedation to provide a relaxing, anxiety free option to increase the chances of successful implantation and smile restoration.

While there are several options for treating tooth loss, it is very important to choose a dental professional that has the experience, knowledge, and expertise to determine the best treatment option for you. A dentist in Pittsburgh, PA can evaluate your teeth, and customize your restoration treatment just for your individual needs.
