A Permanent Solution For Missing Teeth

A Permanent Solution For Missing Teeth

Welcome back to our Fredericksburg, VA dental blog!

We hope that you are ready for Thanksgiving. At Moss, we are all looking forward to spending some time with friends and family. And we realize just how much we have to be thankful for.

When everything is working as it should, we tend to take our health for granted. The same goes for our teeth, and all that they do for us. But if you ever find yourself in a situation where you lose any of your teeth, you will realize how good you had it.

There are many ways that a tooth can become dislodged: a work injury, a car crash, or even from gum disease, or tooth decay.

Once this happens, things won’t look or feel quite right and your mouth won’t function they way that it used to.

It will be traumatic and embarrassing, for a variety of reasons.

The most important thing will be to find a good solution fast.

When you are missing teeth, you will notice right away that you can not eat all the things that you are used to. Some items will be impossible to chew. These include healthy, fiber-rich options that help regulate so many systems in your body.

When you change your diet to compensate for your new limitations, it won’t be long before your wellness starts to deteriorate.

Beyond that, you will look older when your cheeks cave in, and it won’t be hard to miss the empty spaces in your smile.

Luckily, at Moss, we have a good way to turn things around following tooth loss as an adult.

Dental Implants

Implants are the next best thing to natural teeth.

At Moss, there are a few simple steps to the implant placement procedure. First, our team will assess your gums and jaw structure to make sure your gums are healthy and your jaw has enough bone to support the implant.

Next a titanium screw is surgically placed into your jaw to mimic and replace the missing tooth root. It is then left alone for a few months to give it a chance to integrate into the bone so it can function as an anchor for your replacement tooth.

When the implant is fully fused with your jaw, a post is placed in the screw, and a crown is cemented on top to complete the process.

Our implants will restore your biting power as well as your appearance, allowing you to move forward with a healthy, normal existence.

Implants are an investment in your health and happiness. The good news is that this really is a permanent solution.

If you do your part to maintain good oral hygiene practices at home, your dental implants from Moss can last the rest of your life.
