Dental Implants – Do I Need a Periodontist?

No! Did you know that you can typically get the same dental implant work at the same quality from a general dentist. Though there are some cases we end up referring out due to complexity, Dr E. has numerous hours of training and experience installing various types of teeth implants.

Tooth loss, whether due to decay or due to trauma, is detrimental to your dental and overall health. Missing one or several teeth effects form and function and our ability to chew effectively. It also has severe effect on adjacent tissues and structures, affecting supporting bone and gums. The longer the teeth are missing, the more the adjacent teeth move, causing further loss of space, at times making the space so little that it is difficult to replace the tooth or teeth with implants or other options.

Dental implants can be a promising solution to replace a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth or a full set of dentures. They function as sturdy anchorage for replacing missing teeth.

What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?

There are many advantages of dental implants, including:

Improved appearance. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.

Improved speech. With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.

Improved comfort. Because they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.

Easier eating. Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.

Improved self-esteem. Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
