Closeup of a woman's bright, healthy smileIf you have a missing tooth or several missing teeth, you need a tooth replacement solution to help you eat, chew, and smile with confidence once again. Not replacing a missing tooth can cause a number of problems. For instance, your surrounding teeth can shift in position or cause you to feel self-conscious about your smile. At Kuhn Dental Associates, we want what is best for our patients which is why we always recommend dental implants as the best tooth replacement solution. Find out why we recommend dental implants and how you can replace your missing teeth at our Aberdeen dental office.

Dental Implants Replace the Entire Tooth

One of the first reasons why dental implants are the best tooth replacement solution is because they replace the entire tooth. Dental bridges and full and partial dentures might replace your missing tooth or teeth, but they don’t replace the most important part of the tooth – the root. Dental implants act as artificial tooth roots to hold your restoration in place and provide you with all the same benefits that come along with natural teeth. You don’t have to worry about losing bone in your jaw. You also don’t have to worry about the side effects that go along with it like premature aging and sagging skin.

Dental Implants Can Replace Single or Multiple Teeth

There’s not a certain number of missing teeth you need to have missing to get dental implants. Dental implants can replace single teeth, several teeth, or entire arches of teeth. The dental implants can hold any type of restoration in place like dental bridges, dentures, or dental crowns. Dr. Kuhn or Dr. Grimshaw will recommend the correct number of implants for your needs.

Dental Implants Strong are Built to Last

After we place your dental implants, you likely won’t have to replace them for the rest of your life. Dental implants are made of titanium which is a very strong material, stronger than natural teeth. The strength of dental implants secured in your jaw will provide you with everlasting peace of mind when eating or speaking. You never have to worry about your teeth falling out at the wrong moment. You can trust the strength of dental implants at every waking moment.

At Kuhn Dental Associates, we highly recommend every patient with missing teeth experience the benefits of dental implants. If you’re unhappy with your current tooth replacement option or you need to choose one, contact our implant dentist in Aberdeen to schedule a consultation today.
