Many people believe that losing teeth is a normal part of growing old. It is true that as one approaches the golden years, the body slows down. But this is not itself a cause of tooth loss.
In fact, the number one cause of tooth loss is tooth decay, followed closely by periodontal disease, then dental emergencies. If worse comes to worst, and you are left with a gap in your mouth, what should you do? At Your Gold Coast Dentist, we can help.
Dental implants offer a permanent solution to missing teeth. A titanium post is surgically inserted into the jawbone and is allowed to heal. After a period of osseointegration, an abutment connects the implant to the dental crown, which then serve as the replacement tooth.
With dental implants, stability in the mouth is returned. Your chewing capacity is improved, as well as your speech. By filling in the gap, your teeth are prevented from shifting out of place and progressive bone loss is halted.
