SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 12/13/12 -- According to a recent study from the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS), 26% of all American adults have lost all of their permanent teeth by age 74. The AAOMS study also shows that 69% of adults between the age of 35 and 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth due to accident, gum disease, a failed root canal, or tooth decay. Dr. Colin Morton says a growing number of patients at his Malta and Saratoga Springs dentistry practice have begun to prefer dental implants to other conventional methods in the treatment of this condition. Dr. Morton says the increasing popularity is due to a number of enhanced benefits offered by dental implants as opposed to dental bridges or dentures.
As a dentist in Clifton Park and Saratoga Springs, Dr. Morton focuses on a wide range of aesthetic and restorative procedures varying from teeth whitening and porcelain veneers to tooth-colored fillings and dentures. He says by offering a number of treatments for tooth loss and other common dental concerns, his practice is able to provide patients with the latest and most effective care available. In pursuing advanced treatments for tooth loss, Dr. Morton says his preferred technique for restoring his patients' smiles has been to recommend dental implants. Because of their improved durability and performance, he says most patients have begun to elect implants to treat missing teeth: "Due to the statistical longevity of implants, they are of greater value to a patient in the long run than other options."
Performed by anchoring a titanium post to the patient's jaw, Dr. Morton says dental implants can achieve higher levels of performance, durability, and longevity than other treatments such as bridges or dentures. He says they provide high quality treatment and improved aesthetics. Dr. Morton, who also provides implant-supported bridges and implant-supported dentures, adds that patients who may not be ready for the full dental implant procedure have a multitude of options for restoring their smile. However, with dental implants, he says another benefit is the fact that implants do not affect the adjacent teeth, whereas dental bridges must be secured to other teeth: "I always tell patients that implants are a single tooth solution for a single tooth procedure. We are strengthening the situation versus weakening it."
Regardless of which procedure patients decide is right for them, Dr. Morton says one of the most important contributors to a successful outcome is knowing what to look for in a practice. He says choosing a cosmetic and implant dentist who has the proper experience and qualifications is essential for attaining the most natural, long-lasting results. Through partnership with a dedicated practice, Dr. Morton says patients can enjoy the benefits of a stronger, more secure smile: "There are a lot of people jumping on the implant bandwagon, but to have it properly done for a long term result, patients need an experienced implant dentist. This procedure is as close to permanent as we can get."
