Replace Missing Teeth with Dental Implants in Fort Walton Beach, FL
Nearly 70 percent of adults in the United States between the ages 35 to 44 are missing at least one tooth. Dental implants are often the most recommended solution to replace missing teeth. Call our office today to make an appointment!
Dental implants are preferred over traditional methods such as dental bridges and partial or full dentures to replace missing teeth. Traditional methods are often problematic. Dental bridges can make surrounding healthy teeth more vulnerable to damage, and dentures rest on the gums which can be uncomfortable and unsecure, causing them to slip and click when talking and eating.
Dental implant technology gives patients another option to replace missing teeth. Implants are not associated with many of the complications accompanying traditional tooth replacement methods. In fact, dental implants promote oral health! Removable dentures rest on top of the gums, which can further bone loss. The implant is fused with the jaw bone, stimulating the bone and preventing further deterioration.
The fusion process between the implant and the jaw bone is called osseointegration. A properly integrated implant is stable and looks and feels like your natural tooth. It will not slip like a denture, or expose your surrounding teeth to potential damage like a bridge. Implants also have a longer lifespan and less maintenance requirements than other methods to replace missing teeth.
The technology for modern day dental implants has been around for over 20 years. As the technology continues to improve, patients who received implants 15 or 20 years ago are still reporting functional results!
Dental implants are truly a permanent solution to replace missing teeth. Call our office today to setup a examination with Dr. Bartruff for dental implants in Fort Walton Beach, FL!
