Dental Implants

Seniors after Dental implants

Tooth loss does not mean the end of enjoying your favorite foods or feeling confident about the way you look. Toledo family dentist Dr. Natalie Nechvatal knows each patient is different when it comes to the tooth replacement option that will work best. That is why at Light Touch Dental Care in Toledo, we offer a number of choices to preplace missing teeth including dentures, bridges, and dental implants.

Oftentimes, patients ask their family dentist about the most stable solution – the one that is most like having their tooth back again. Dental implants provide patients with the most reliable and stable way to fill the gaps in their smiles. With dental implants, you can count on reliability and dentistry that can last for decades – even a lifetime.

The development of dental implants has opened up a wide array of options for people who need to replace one or more missing teeth.  No longer are you limited to a removable appliance and what are essentially cover-ups, or even taking out or removing structure from additional teeth necessary to secure a bridge.  Now we can isolate treatment and replace a single tooth with a dental implant.

How Dental Implants Work

The main reason Dental Implants in Toledo Ohio are so reliable is that the dental implant is designed to replace your tooth’s root and integrate into your jawbone, becoming part of your body. Because of this integration, your dental implants can slow down or even prevent the bone loss that commonly occurs when you lose teeth. Your family dentist states that as long as you properly care for your dental implant it should not require more than an occasional adjustment over the years to stay completely functional.

Your dental crown, made of durable ceramic, can withstand normal day-to-day wear. Using common sense when you eat, especially hard foods, and avoiding chewing on things like ice will help keep your dental crown functional and intact. If your crown does sustain damage, contact Light Touch Dental Care and Toledo family dentist,Dr. Natalie Nechvatal,right away!

Dental Implant Versatility

For patients wishing to combine the benefits of dental implants with other dentistry, such as fixed dental bridges or dentures, dental implants can add stability. This eliminates slippage or mobility of dentures and allows dental bridges to replace more missing teeth at once, potentially avoiding the need for a partial denture.

We work with the top oral surgeons in the Toledo area to make sure that we identify the right dental implant system for your smile and to make sure you have the best outcome possible.  Once the implant is placed and the underlying structure is strong, we create a beautiful, natural looking, custom restoration (essentially a crown) to complete the process.  You'll have your smile back, and you'll be worry free!
