Marrero Teeth Implants You’ll Want to Show Off 

Marrero teeth implants are not just for adults as young ones also need them from time to time due to an accident or other incident causing a loss or one or more teeth. However, it is important to note that a kids dentist will be reluctant to use them if the affected child’s jaw is still growing, but your Marrero dentist will be glad to help you and your children flash those healthy smiles by inserting teeth implants once that jaw has stopped growing.

Other Causes

An additional cause for people to lose teeth and seek out teeth implants is periodontitis, something that those 30 years of age or older have about a 50 percent chance of having. Periodontitis, a disease of the gums, usually follows gingivitis, inflammation of the gums, although it is important to note that this transition does not occur in all cases. But when it does, it often results in tooth loss. In fact, this inflammation of the gums it is the leading cause of tooth loss.

Who Can Get Teeth Implants?

Of course, a not-yet-developed jaw is not a concern for adult patients, but patients will need to be in good health prior to getting the procedure done. Excessive use of alcohol or nicotine or suffering cancer or uncontrolled diabetes can result in these dental implants fusing to your bone, so make sure to let us know your medical history and your current medical condition so that we can determine if this procedure is the best one for you.

What are Teeth Implants? 

Fortunately, those who have experienced tooth loss for any reason can take advantage of teeth implants. These replace the root as well as the tooth that has been lost, and they serve as an alternative to getting bridges and dentures.

Why Should I Get Them?

One of the advantages of getting teeth implants is that they feel like regular teeth, and they look like them too. They also tend to not have any impact on the person’s speech, which can oftentimes occur when bridges or dentures have been used. Food and other items also do not get caught in the area since they are permanent structures.

Another benefit is that the health of adjacent and nearby teeth is not affected by a replacement tooth or series of replacement teeth. For example, if you were to get a bridge, you may need to have adjacent teeth ground down to support it. Teeth implants are also much easier to keep clean than the other options available to you, and they can last several years up to a lifetime.

You should also consider getting this done sooner rather than later is because of the bone loss that results from the loss of a tooth. This is because the alveolar bone is kept strong from a stimulation with the adjacent tooth, so when that tooth is lost, so is that stimulation. The bone’s width in this area is reduced by about 25 percent in the first year following the loss of the tooth and continues to shrink in the coming years.

If you have had the unfortunate experience of losing one or more teeth, give your dentist a call, and we will discuss with you if Marrero teeth implants would make the most sense for you. And your kids’ dentist will also be ready to get this process started if his or her jaw is finished growing so that those healthy smiles can return.
