Dental implants explained
Other dental replacement options, such as conventional bridges and dentures, exist. But dental implants are designed to provide a close match to your natural teeth. Surgically placed in the jaw, implants function like tooth roots. During the healing process, the implant fuses with the jaw, providing a steady and robust foundation for your new tooth.
Benefits of dental implants
Beyond merely replacing teeth, dental implant-supported crowns, bridges, and dentures provide the following advantages:
- Match natural teeth – Since dental implants come in different shapes and sizes, your dentist will choose the one best suited to your needs. Because of how dental implants complement your teeth, only you and your dentist will know that you have teeth implants. They are indistinguishable in form and function from healthy, natural teeth.
- Promote optimal oral health – When you lose a tooth, there is general jawbone deterioration in the affected area. Dental implants prevent the loss of jawbone mass by stimulating the affected bony tissue. This process prevents destructive bone loss (or resorption).
- Prevent other teeth from shifting – Because of the gap left by the missing tooth, the remaining teeth might move from their natural positions, which affects the health of your “bite.” Dental implants fill the gap, helping to preserve the natural position of the teeth.
- Easy to care for: With implants, you don’t need specialized oral care products to keep them clean and healthy. Regular brushing and flossing and visits to our office for professional cleanings will perfectly do the job.
