VICKSBURG, Mass., July 29, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Drs. Jonathan Nash and Kenneth
When patients have one or more missing teeth, they are also at risk of losing bone density, suffering from a sunken-in gum line and experiencing shifting of the remaining teeth. Because the titanium post of a dental implant is surgically placed into the jawbone, it stimulates the bone matter just like a natural tooth root did. As Dr. Jonathan Nash explains, "Dental implants help to maintain the bone in the area without losing any more teeth." Consequently, people who opt for dental implants can halt or even reverse bone loss.
After implantation, the titanium post is left to fuse and bond with the bone, a process called osseointegration. Within about four to six months, a custom-shaped and designed dental crown is placed on top. Each dental implant can withstand normal chewing forces. With proper care, dental implants should last at least 20 years, making them a long-term, comfortable solution.
Candidates for dental implants typically have lost a tooth or are about to have a tooth extracted. If candidates struggle with gum disease, they must be in treatment and managing their condition in order to ensure the long-term success of the implant. For patients with dental fear or anxiety, Drs. Nash offer sedation dentistry to enhance patient comfort throughout the dental implant treatment.
As the only long-term solution for tooth loss that restores function, health and aesthetics, dental implants have evolved into a preferred treatment option for adults seeking alternatives to dental bridges.
