Physical damage as well as genetic factors can cause the premature loss of teeth, which can lead to problems with eating, speaking, and smiling. Traditional bridgework can help to fill in the gaps, but it also requires the support of other teeth in order to work, which can end up causing further tooth loss.
There have been advances in dentistry that have made the tooth restoration process a lot more safe and a lot more efficient. Dr. Sohl Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry, located in Stuart, is proud to provide one these advances with Nobel Biocare® Implants System, a dental implant system meant to replace teeth down to their roots.
If there are some unwanted gaps in your smile that you’ve been wanting to fix, contact us in Stuart and ask about Nobel Biocare® Implants. We might be able to bridge those gaps without any actual bridgework.
Why Do People Turn to Nobel Biocare® Implant System?
Patients have been turning to Nobel Biocare® Implants because they are a comfortable and long lasting alternative to older and more popular treatments like dentures. Solutions like dentures can lead to painful, swollen spots if they are not fit into the mouth properly. Dentures can also cause surrounding teeth to bend and become displaced.
Nobel Biocare® Implant System digs down into the roots of your teeth and doesn’t require other teeth for support, so it greatly reduces the chance of misaligning them. Patients who have received Nobel Biocare® Dental Implants have reported them remaining stable and strong for up to an entire decade. These dental implants have also been shown to be safe on people of all ages, so they can be a good option for children who have lost their teeth as well.
What is Nobel Biocare® Implant System Like?
Nobel Biocare® Implants are inserted into the root, where they are covered with an artificial crown. Unlike traditional bridgework, these implants require no drilling down of the teeth adjacent to the missing one. A mild anesthetic will be used to increase patient comfort during the procedure. This is an outpatient process, so patients can expect to return home to rest after the treatment has been completed.
In order to make sure the implants settle into the mouth properly, it is recommended that a patient eats soft and non-acidic food for the few days following the treatment’s completion.
Am I a Suitable Candidate for Nobel Biocare® Implants?
Nobel Biocare® Implants have been designed for patients of all ages. If you’re a healthy adult in need of a more modern approach to tooth replacement, Nobel Biocare® Implant System will likely be a good option for you.
A consultation in which a practitioner reviews your medical history and current health will be necessary to answer this question for sure. This consultation will be done so that we can make sure that you don’t have a condition that could complicate the procedure.
