Let’s say you’re missing one of your back molars. The tooth was extracted years ago, but you have never even considered having it replaced with an implant. After all, implants can be expensive and it’s a back molar that people cannot easily see. What’s the harm, right?
Well, your friends at New Albany Implants would like to weigh in on this one with some helpful professional advice. First, it’s important to know that dentistry is not just about aesthetics. By neglecting to replace your tooth or multiple teeth with implants, you could be opening the door for significant jawbone deterioration. Luckily, there are solutions our office can provide to restore your smile and combat bone loss.
Dental implants are your best option for restoring your smile and preventing jawbone loss. Our office inserts a titanium rod into your bone that replaces your tooth’s root. Once the rod is properly fused to your bone, we will place a permanent crown or denture. As an added bonus, our dental implants all carry a 10-year warranty.
If you have missing teeth, you’re not alone. According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, two in three Americans have one or more missing teeth, and it’s estimated that 30 million Americans have no teeth in one or both jaws.
