Dental Implants in Hutchinson
Aesthetic Restorative Treatments by Dr. Grant Ringler
It’s extremely important that you replace missing teeth. Whether you opt for dental implants, dentures, or a fixed bridge, replacing missing teeth will improve your overall oral health, comfort, function, and appearance. Even if you’re only missing one tooth, problems like bone loss, bite change, TMJ pain, and gum disease can occur quickly. Dental implants offer many benefits and are an increasingly popular alternative to bridges and dentures. In addition to being more stable than traditional dentures, they are easy to clean and maintain because they mimic your natural teeth. Restoring your beautiful smile has never been easier, and Hutchinson, KS dentist Dr. Grant Ringler can help you find the right option for you to create a uniquely stunning smile with dental implants.
How Implants Work
Dental implants are inserted into the sockets that are left empty by missing teeth. The implant post will naturally bond to your jawbone over time in order to create a secure foundation. Dental implants have many advantages over dentures and bridges because of their natural appearance, improved comfort and unparalleled convenience. They can be used to replace individual teeth or even to secure a prosthetic appliance such as dentures.
Benefits of Dental Implants
There are two parts to a tooth: the crown and the root. When you lose a tooth, the crown is often replaced, but the root is usually not. Losing the root can negatively affect your oral health by reducing your jaw bone mass and eventually leading to future tooth loss. When you choose to receive dental implants, you will benefit from the following advantages:
- Preservation of bone in the jaw
- Preservation of facial shape
- Stimulation of new bone growth to prevent bone and gum recession
As long as the dental implant is taken care of as recommended, you should feel little to no discomfort and heal completely. Hutchinson, Kansas dentist Dr. Ringler is highly skilled in performing this procedure, and our team will help you make the decision that is right for you and your smile.
