Other Benefits of Dental Implants
Because implant-supported restorations are securely held in place using small titanium posts, they provide the security and functionality that is akin to what natural teeth offer. The posts fuse with the jawbone to provide a strong foundation for single replacement crowns or larger restorations such as bridges and partial or full dentures. Implant-supported restorations will not loosen or slide out of place the way traditional dentures do, allowing patients to be confident in their ability to eat and speak.
Implant-supported restorations are designed to feel like a natural part of your body. They are permanently fixed, eliminating the complicated cleaning process of traditional restorations. Instead, patients can floss and brush as they would with natural teeth. In addition, implant-supported dentures are firmly held in place, eliminating gum irritation and discomfort from ill-fitting plastic bases.
Dental implants offer significant oral health benefits and can prevent bone degeneration while providing a stable and comfortable base for natural-looking restorations.
Oral Health Maintenance
Natural tooth roots stimulate your jawbone as you chew. This stimulation notifies your brain that nutrients are needed in that area of your mouth. After tooth loss, this process halts and the bone tissue in your jaw begins to atrophy. Over time, the jawbone deteriorates, possibly leading to further tooth loss and giving your face a sunken appearance. Dental implants combat this degenerative process by simulating a natural tooth root. Implants can halt atrophy and prevent future bone loss, providing support for your facial muscles and maintaining the overall health of your smile.
