Trying to smile when you're missing teeth can be a challenge. Dental implants make it easy!

With American adults aged 20 to 64 missing an average of 8 of their permanent teeth, it may seem like losing a tooth is a matter of dental implantwhen, rather than if, it happens. The fact is, however, that tooth loss is not a normal part of the aging process, but decay, gum disease and trauma can take their toll. If you've lost one or more teeth, Dr. John Olsen of Franklin Dental in Franklin, WI, can replace them with dental implants. Here's how dental implants can improve your smile and your overall dental health.

What are dental implants?

There are several ways of replacing missing teeth available today. However, dental implants are the only ones that replace the entire tooth structure, rather than simply filling in the visible spaces. Dental implants start with placement of a metal post, a tiny screw-like device that is surgically placed under your gums by your Franklin dentist. Next, a metal abutment is used to attach the post to the final portion of the dental implant, the crown. Made of porcelain or ceramic, the crown is the portion people will see when you smile and is crafted in a dental laboratory to look just like a natural tooth. With the post acting as a root, the tooth you lost is entirely replicated when you have a dental implant in place.

Why are dental implants so popular?

Dentists and patients alike continue to be amazed by the benefits of dental implants. Not only are they incredibly realistic and durable, but they help protect the remaining teeth by providing constant support and stimulation of the jawbone. When the jawbone has tooth roots in it, it regenerates itself. Without those roots, however, it begins to recede and can become less stable for the teeth that remain.

If you're missing one or more teeth and are wondering about your candidacy for dental implants, give Franklin Dental in Franklin, WI a call today! We'd be glad to help you start on your journey to a more stable smile!
