Dental tip 8/13/15

Dental tip from the desk of Dr. Anthony Prezioso:

There are many reasons for tooth loss.   These reasons can include: tooth decay, gum disease, trauma to the mouth, and congenital defects. One way in which your dentist can remedy this is with dental implants. There are many benefits to having a dental implant versus a bridge or denture. The implant tooth looks, feels, and functions like a natural tooth. Dental implants also replace the tooth root which helps preserve bone and restores natural chewing capacity. There is no uncomfortable rocking, pinching of gums, or visible clips as with partial dentures.  Clinical studies have shown a 93% success rate with implants.  Studies show Dental implants can be for life; however they must still be maintained and monitored like your natural teeth.
