A Discussion on Dental Implants with Your Chandler Dentist
As part of our dedication to the continued good dental health of our patients, Dentist Dr. Arooni has treated a wide variety of dental health issues. One of the most devastating of these issues is tooth loss, which can result from a number of reasons and is often difficult to hide. Aside from the gap in your smile, however, there are more profound consequences of tooth loss that you may not be aware of and that can slowly destroy the remainder of your smile. To help prevent this gradual destruction after you’ve suffered tooth loss, Chandler dentist, Dr. Mark Arooni, offers innovative dental implants to support your dental prosthetic.
Examining Tooth Loss
Replacing lost teeth is important for more than aesthetic reasons. Remaining teeth can shift towards the space to try to take up the slack, which can leave them vulnerable to tooth decay and excessive wear, as well as throw your bite off balance. The loss of your tooth’s roots can negatively affect the health of your jawbone, which is the foundation of your healthy teeth. As your jawbone slowly deteriorates from the loss, it can lose its ability to retain the rest of your teeth and further tooth loss becomes a real threat.
What Can a Dental Implant Do?
Before your dental crown or denture is placed, a dental implant can be surgically inserted into your jawbone where your tooth roots once were. Your jawbone will fuse to the biocompatible titanium surface of the implant, effectively creating a prosthetic tooth root housed in your jawbone as securely as your natural tooth roots are. Once healed, Dr. Arooni can attach your dental prosthetic to the implant to complete your total tooth replacement. With your implant and replacement teeth firmly intact, biting and chewing stimulation is restored and can help prevent subsequent jawbone deterioration.
