Individualized care for tooth replacement in Kettering

There is no one-size-fits-all treatment for missing teeth. At Alex Bell Dental, we take a highly individualized approach to dental care, especially when it comes to tooth replacements. We offer different options to meet the needs of all of our patients, which is why so many patients in the Kettering area visit our office.

For years, the standard for tooth replacement was removable dentures. While this option worked (and still does work) for many individuals, it does not meet every patient’s needs. Dentures sit on top of the gums, so while they restore appearance and some functionality, they do not provide the same functionality as natural teeth. Dental bridges are another option, and are more secure than dentures, yet still rest on top of the gums. In the end, many patients are unhappy with trying to eat and speak comfortably with these options.

Dental implants are a solution that provides much more stability than dentures or dental bridges, because they physically replace the natural tooth root. With dental implants, tasks like eating and speaking can be as easy as they are with natural teeth.

The benefits of dental implants include:

  • Fresher smelling breath
  • Biting, chewing with comfort
  • Easier ability to speak
  • Improved fit and functionality of attached dentures
  • Elimination of denture adhesive or ill-fitting dentures
  • Permanent restoration

One of the biggest advantages of dental implants lies below the visible surface of the teeth and gums, in the jawbone. Because implants stimulate the bone like a natural tooth, it maintains the integrity of the bone and keeps the restoration stable.

The dental implant process can be lengthy, so it’s important to discuss the timeframe with your dentist. Several appointments over the course of several months are required to complete the dental implants and placement of the restoration. In the end, patients say that their new teeth were well worth the wait.

If you are in the Kettering or Centerville areas and feel like the time is right to explore tooth replacement with dental implants, call our office today to set up an appointment for a consultation.
