If you experience tooth loss for any reason, a dental implant is potentially the best option for your unique situation. Dental implants are comprised of metal posts, or frames, surgically implanted into your jaw bone beneath your gum line. These metal rods fuse to your jaw bone, essentially becoming a part of the bone itself. The rods then give your dentist in Guilford the perfect place to mount replacement or false teeth. Friedler Dental Group wants everyone in the Guilford and the surrounding shoreline areas of Madison, Branford, Clinton, and North Branford, Connecticut, to inform their dental options, including dental implants. Dental implants are a practical and effective solution.
Since dental implants are directly fused to your jaw bone, they provide the perfect support for artificial teeth. They act as the root of the new tooth. Once you have an implant successfully fused to the bone, you can then mount bridges or dentures to the implants, and they will never slip or shift in your mouth as you chew or speak naturally. Bridges in dentures that are mounted to implants feel more natural than conventional dentures and bridges because they essentially have a root-like a natural tooth does.

For many people, ordinary dentures and bridges very uncomfortable and commonly slip, cause sore spots, or gagging. Another advantage of mounting false teeth to a dental implant is that it will strengthen the jaw bone. Without the root of the tooth being naturally implanted in the jaw bone, if a dental implant does not replace it, it will eventually weaken and become easy to break. This can also cause the shifting of the teeth.
If false teeth or dentures are mounted to a dental implant, the adjacent teeth do not need to be ground down or prepared to hold your replacement teeth, which serves as another huge benefit.
Dental implants are not for everyone, however. To receive them, you must have healthy gums and sufficient bone to support the implant. It is also very important to meticulously care for your dental hygiene to keep the structure healthy.
