According to statistics, a high percentage of adults in the United States by the age of 50 will have lost more than one of their permanent teeth due to decay, gum disease or injury. Lost teeth affect your ability to smile with confidence or speak and chew properly, impacting your quality of life. Fortunately, the skilled professionals at Metuchen Dental Group, can help reestablish the look, feel and function of a naturally beautiful and complete smile.
While having missing teeth can have an affect your appearance, it can also alter your bite, impair oral function and reduce support for natural contours of your face to produce a more haggard look. Implants differ from traditional dental prostheses, such as conventional fixed bridges or dentures, because the lowermost portion of an implant functions in much the same way as the root of a natural tooth. Once placed and integrated with the surrounding bone, dental implants can be used to secure custom crowns, fixed bridges or implant-retained dentures, and can even be placed strategically to support an entire set of upper or lower teeth. Moreover, dental implants can be placed to restore missing teeth, without requiring the involvement the adjacent teeth.
