Effective use of dental implants in Dublin area
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala is a dentist in the Dublin area who believes her patients should be able to enjoy a more beautiful smile while also maintaining the ability to speak and chew properly. When patients are dealing with tooth loss, they experience the consequences of missing teeth. At StarBrite Dental in Dublin, we encourage patients to speak to our team of professionals about the ways in which they can restore their smile with dental implants.
Dental implants are a popular choice for patients with missing teeth. One or more teeth missing from the smile can greatly detract from the appearance of the smile while also affecting one’s ability to eat and speak. Existing teeth may also shift out of place, resulting in even more problems that may require orthodontic treatment to correct. Instead, patients who have lost or extracted teeth should speak immediately to Dr. Munira Lokhandwala about replacement options like dental implants.
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala will ensure patients are appropriate candidates for the procedure with enough bone structure to support the implant before performing the surgery. The implants are placed into the bone, osseointegration occurs, and then the implant is restored over the top.
The most common use of a dental implant is to replace a single tooth. A dental crown is made to cover the abutment and act as a false tooth while the implant acts as a false root. Another way patients can use dental implants is for denture stabilization. Full cosmetic dentures tend to shift and can result in irritation, while other patients have fears of their dentures falling out. Dental implants can be placed along the dental arch and made to work with the dentures. This allows the dentures to snap over the dental implants and provide optimum stabilization.
