With dental implants, we can help improve the function and appearance of your teeth. If you are considering replacing a missing tooth or having better stability in your existing one, talk to one of our providers about the possibility of using implants. Below are some of the reasons why you should consider dental implants.
Conventional dental implants are usually placed on the gums and supported by the bone underneath. Due to how the force is applied to the bone, it does not penetrate the bone, which eventually wears away. It is why the bone may eventually wear away after several years of wearing a traditional set. Although the natural components of a traditional set will never change, the gums and bone supporting the implant will eventually resorb over time.
With dental implants, the bone can’t resorb at the sites where it got placed. It prevents the bone from going back to its natural state. In some cases, a patient’s natural teeth will not touch the implants because they are connected to the prosthetic. In other cases, dental implants can be used to anchor a prosthetic tooth to the mouth, which can improve its retention and strength. They can also be utilized to increase the stability of a partial tooth.
Unlike natural teeth, dental implants are made of titanium and are not susceptible to degradation or corrosion due to bacteria and acid in the mouth. Despite their advantages, these materials still need to be regularly cleaned to ensure they are as natural as possible. They can eventually cause bone loss and gum disease if not properly maintained.
When a tooth is pulled, its surrounding bone can eventually collapse and wither away. A dental implant is the most natural and effective replacement for a missing tooth. Like a healthy tooth, it absorbs forces and distributes them to the surrounding bone to maintain its level.
Although it’s usually best to preserve a natural tooth, dental implants can function and look like a natural tooth. They are very well-designed and will not only look great but also keep people from knowing that you have an implant.
Unlike traditional teeth, dental implants can function as your natural teeth do. They can also help you eat and brush properly and prevent you from having difficulty with your food. On the other hand, with a hard palate, dentures can make it hard to judge the temperature of food properly.
Dental implants can preserve tooth tissue and prevent the need for the removal of adjacent teeth. They can also help restore a person’s jawbone structure by reducing the load on the remaining teeth and preserving bone. In addition, they can prevent the development of bone resorption and deterioration, which can lead to loss of jaw height.
