Benefits of Dental Implants
Better for Your Health
Dental implants offer endless benefits for your oral and overall health. When teeth go missing, they leave behind voids in the gums that lead to many issues. The empty space allows the surrounding teeth to shift towards the void which will cause bite issues. This also makes it difficult to keep your teeth clean and infection-free.
The void also means the jaw bone will receive little to no stimulation. Slowly over time, the bone will begin to deteriorate. A dental implant will act as the missing tooth root and provide enough stimulation to prevent bone loss. Other dental restorations have many eating restrictions which often include healthy foods. A dental implant secured restoration allows you to eat all the foods you love including healthy foods.
Does Not Damage Healthy Teeth
Teeth implants will not harm the teeth surrounding the void in your gums. If you choose a traditional dental bridge, the adjacent will act as anchor teeth to secure it. This means your dentist will need to prepare those teeth by making them much smaller in size. This is a permanent change to those teeth. An implant-supported bridge will not harm any healthy teeth.
Most Natural Solution
Dental implants are the only tooth replacement options that will feel, function, fit and look like natural teeth. Today’s dental restorations look and feel more realistic than those made in the past. When secured with implants, they are very stable and are able to function like natural teeth. You will not have to worry about them slipping in the mouth, slurring your speech, and falling out. You will be able to eat, smile, and talk normally.
Only Permanent Solution Available
Dentists surgically place dental implants in the jaw bone where they will fuse with the surrounding bone. Essentially they become one with the jaw bone and create a very stable base for the restoration. If you remain in good health and stick to a healthy oral hygiene routine, they will last you a lifetime.
