Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. Since dental implants integrate into the structure of your bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompany bridgework and dentures. No one will ever know that you have a replacement tooth.
Unlike bridges, dental implants do not sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth because neighboring teeth are not altered to support the implant. More of your own teeth are left untouched, which is a significant long-term benefit to your oral health.
The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free from periodontal disease.
Dental implants are intimately connected with the gum tissues and underlying bone in the mouth. Since periodontists are the dental expects who specialize in these areas, they are ideal members of your dental implant ream.
Your general dentist and Dr. Krese will work together to ensure you are happy with the aesthetics and function of your implant.
