Effective dental care preserves and restores health and function. Dr. Silvano Senn and the Whole Health Dentistry team are committed to offering services that provide the patient with optimal oral health. Maintaining the integrity of natural oral structure is proven a preferred option in dentistry. Patients who have lost one or more teeth have multiple choices available to restore their function, as well as appearance. Only dental implants provide patients with the most effective solution to replace missing teeth. With an upfront initial investment, patients can experience outstanding benefits for many years with only normal oral maintenance required. When a patient loses a tooth, not only chewing surface is lost, but oral health is negatively affected as well. Implants are effective in treating both of these conditions. A tooth has a root structure, which provides stimulation to the bones in the jaw. When a tooth is missing, this is lost as well, and will ultimately cause bone loss. Further deterioration may occur in healthy teeth and dental health, and facial appearance may be affected over time.
Replacing teeth and restoring smiles with dental implantsVideo Transcript
Dental implants are titanium roots that are replaced in the jawbone to resemble a tooth or group of teeth. A screw is inserted through the gums and into the jawbone. A porcelain crown is then attached to the screw to become the new tooth or teeth. They can be used to support dental prosthesis, including crowns, dentures, and bridges. Today's treatments are so natural looking, no one will know you had surgery. There is approximately a 95 percent success rate for all implants. With modern advances in dentistry, some implants can be restored immediately with lifelike all-porcelain crowns. For more details, ask your dentist.
