What makes dental implants unique?
Dental implants allow patients who have lost one or more teeth – due to causes ranging from gum disease to injury – an option to restore their smiles other than the formerly standard go-to solution of dentures. With a dental implant, the crown of the tooth is replaced along with the tooth’s root. This is done by inserting a small piece of titanium under the gum and directly into or on top (mini implants) of the jawbone.
Dental implants are an important advancement in dentistry because the consequences of tooth loss go far beyond aesthetic issues. When a tooth is lost, the alveolar bone that supports the jaw deteriorates, resulting in a problematic domino effect. When the jawbone is weakened, teeth that surround the area where the tooth was lost tend to shift, which can lead to crowding, gaps or even the loosening of these teeth. This is also why many people who have lost multiple teeth tend to have a “sunken in” appearance to their faces. As the jawbone wears away, there is less bone for your facial muscles and tissues to adhere to. So the more this structure deteriorates, the more these muscles shift inward to shape them around whatever bone is left.
Because dental implants are built into the jawbone, this whole issue is prevented, and the gums grow and mold themselves around the implant as they would a natural tooth root. A restorative crown is placed on top of the implant, providing a beautiful, permanent solution that allows patients the freedom to chew, speak, brush and floss as easily as they would with their natural teeth. Implants are also a great solution for patients who wear dentures, since they can be used to anchor in dentures and prevent the discomfort of having to use adhesives to keep them from sliding around.
What to expect from Dr. Kaseff’s dental implant care
Since the dental implant process is so intricate, it’s best to have more than one professional work on the different parts of the procedure. For his part, Dr. Kaseff provides his patients with beautiful dental implant restorations. He is the quarterback of the process, a dentist who creates and adheres the crown (the restoration piece) to the dental implant – the part your friends admire when you flash them your dazzling smile! He diagnoses the problem, creates the treatment plan and collaborates with an oral surgeon to provide the best care possible. There are no shortcuts when creating long lasting natural looking results. This provides you with a more aligned bite, protection from bone loss, and the ease and confidence to eat, speak and smile as you would have before losing your teeth.
Dr. Kaseff trained at the Misch International Implant Institute after receiving his dental degree from the University of Louisville, and has been one of Loveland’s premier dental implant restoration dentists for over 15 years.
