Replacing Missing Teeth with Mini-Dental Implants with Green Bay, Wisconsin Dentist Dr. Craig Janssen
Randy Alvarez, host of The Wellness Hour, interviews Green Bay, Wisconsin dentist Dr. Craig Janssen.
Dental implants are now the generally preferred tooth replacement treatment over partial dentures and fixed bridges. Traditional treatments either rest on your gums, as with removable dentures, or rely upon adjacent teeth to serve as anchors for fixed bridges. Dental implants are placed into the jaw bone, offering a highly successful, long-term replacement option.
What Are Mini-Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a more secure and confident solution to replace missing teeth, especially when compared with uncomfortable or loose dentures and bridges. A dental implant is a small titanium post that is inserted below the gum line, serving as an anchor for an artificial tooth, or crown, to be placed on top. Dental implants can actually support crowns, bridges, and dentures, and can be used to replace one or more missing teeth.
What Are the Benefits of Mini-Dental Implants?
- Improves the quality of your smile
- Fills any gaps in your smile
- Boost self-confidence and increases self-esteem
- Creates an even and uniform smile
- Preserves facial structure
- Stimulates the jaw bone to prevent deterioration that could impact the facial structure
Tooth Loss and Mini-Dental Implants
Did you know an estimated 69% of adults ages 35-44 have lost a minimum of one tooth to either injury, decay or gum disease? Moreover, by age 74, 26% of adults have lost all of their permanent teeth.
Dental technology now offers alternatives to the traditional methods of tooth replacement: dentures and fixed bridges, which are associated with increased complications over time. Removable dentures cause bone loss which impacts facial structure and can loosen or alter denture fit. Improperly fitting dentures can make embarrassing clicking sounds when eating or talking. Fixed bridges are placed by grinding down remaining adjacent teeth, also known as abutments, making these healthy teeth more susceptible to damage. Despite long-term complications, these treatments are still safe and viable.
Research indicates that dental implants yield better long-term results for tooth replacement. Titanium implants are surgically placed into the jaw bone, where the implant fuses with the existing natural bone in a process called osseointegration. Properly integrated implants do not slip or make embarrassing noises and are more difficult to distinguish from your natural teeth. Because they mirror tooth and root structure, implants provide stimulation for the jawbone, preventing bone loss, while their titanium composition makes them resistant to decay. These factors contribute to the long-term success of dental implants and subsequent overall oral health.
Dental implant technology has been around for over 20 years. Not only does the technology continue to develop and improve, but it has also stood the test of time! Patients who received implants in the ’80s and ’90s continue to report optimum functionality of their implants. With proper care and hygiene, dental implants are truly a life-long solution for missing teeth.
What Are the Advantages of Mini-Dental Implants?
Precisely placed by Dr. Janssen, dental implants offer several advantages. The structure of dental implants provides patients with convenience and dependability, allowing them to feel comfortable when speaking or eating. The crowns look and feel natural, giving patients smiles that are beautiful and functional.
Missing teeth is also a problem that affects the rest of your smile, often causing teeth to shift and loosen. This may result in the loss of additional teeth, as well as the degeneration of the jaw bone. Additional benefits of dental implants include:
- No need for removal, like dentures
- Function without pain or discomfort
- Freedom to eat the foods you love
- Lack of worry about loose fitting dentures
- Halt the loss of bone and shifting of teeth
- Require no special care aside from good daily oral hygiene and regular dental visit
Why Choose Mini-Dental Implants?
- Permanent tooth restoration
- Ability to eat and speak without loose dentures
- No more embarrassing gaps in your smile!
