There are a number of solutions for replacing missing teeth, but none offer as many benefits as dental implants. With implant dentistry, Garner dentist Dr. Adam Moore can not only replace missing teeth, but their roots as well. This difference in placement allows implants to offer exclusive benefits including:
- No harm to or reliance on adjacent teeth
- No risk of slipping or falling out
- Complete restoration of biting and chewing abilities
- No risk of jaw shrinkage and collapse
When you lose a tooth, you also lose its root – and this issue presents very large problems. The root of a tooth is responsible for, among other things, sending signals to the body that bone is necessary in the area of the jaw surrounding it. Without those signals, the body reappropriates the minerals keeping that area of bone solid, resulting in jaw shrinkage and collapse. Implant dentistry alone prevents this otherwise unavoidable consequence of tooth loss.
Implant dentistry offers the longest-lasting and most reliable tooth replacement solution.
