It’s never an easy decision to lose a tooth or two. Whether it’s due to trauma, disease, or aging, you will have to consider many factors before deciding how best to replace your missing teeth. While dentures and bridges are traditional methods for tooth replacement that have been used for decades, there’s now another option: dental implants. Dental implants are permanent anchors made of titanium that are surgically placed into your jawbone where the roots of your teeth would normally be located. Unlike traditional tooth replacement methods like dentures and bridges, dental implants function like natural teeth because they are anchored into place by your jawbone rather than by soft tissue alone; this allows them to feel more natural when speaking or eating since there is no risk of slippage when chewing food or biting down on something hard like an apple core (I know…gross). While replacing missing teeth with dental implants has many benefits over traditional methods such as improved speech ability and better overall oral health through fewer instances of gum disease—plus many others listed below—they should only be considered if you have healthy gums!
Dental implants are a permanent, stable tooth replacement option.
Dental implants are a permanent, stable tooth replacement option. Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants do not slip or fall out of place. They remain firmly in the jawbone and don’t require re-tightening or adjustment throughout the years like dentures or bridges do. The only thing that might need to be replaced over time is the crown placed on top of the implant—but even then it’s unlikely that you’ll need to replace it more than once if ever!
Dental implants help prevent gum disease.
Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth. Unlike dentures, dental implants do not move around in your mouth and are fixed in place by the bone beneath them. Dental implants act like natural teeth and support your gums, so they help prevent gum disease and keep your mouth healthy.
Dental implants can help you maintain your youthful face shape.
The aging process usually results in a loss of teeth, which often robs the face of its natural curves and contours. Dental implants can be used to replace lost teeth, improving both appearance and function.
A missing tooth or teeth can also cause an overbite or underbite condition that will eventually lead to jaw bone deterioration as well as changes in facial bone structure and posture. With dental implants, it is possible for patients to regain their natural smile while maintaining health and beauty at the same time!
Dental implants function like natural teeth.
Dental implants are made from titanium, which is a strong metal that is placed into the jawbone. Once the bone has grown around the implant and it’s anchored firmly into place, you can use it to replace one or more missing teeth. These implants look like natural teeth and feel like them too—you’ll be able to chew anything you want without any problems!
Dental implants can help you improve your sense of taste.
Dental implants can improve your sense of taste.
The reason for this is because dental implants provide a stable surface for the crown to sit and hold on to, which improves the stability of the tooth and increases its resistance to fracture. The end result is an improved ability to chew food and enjoy a wider variety of flavors in foods you eat.
Dental implants will not slip or fall out of place when speaking or eating.
When you have missing teeth and are considering dental implants, you can rest assured that the implant will not slide out of place when speaking or eating—for good reason. A dental implant is attached to your jawbone by a screw, which is a very strong structure. The screw holds the implant in place inside your mouth, thus keeping it firmly anchored to your jawbone as well.
Dental implants are durable and can last a lifetime with proper care.
Dental implants are made from titanium, a very durable metal. They’re also made from zirconium, a synthetic material that has the same chemical properties as natural tooth enamel. This means that it’s resistant to acid erosion and other environmental factors.
The durability of dental implants helps ensure that they will last for years—even decades—with proper care and maintenance. In fact, dental implants are less likely than natural teeth to break or chip because they don’t have nerves or blood vessels in them like natural teeth do; thus, there’s no risk of nerve damage when cleaning around them (which can cause pain) or biting down on something hard (which could cause inflammation). Additionally, because there isn’t any risk of breaking an implant while chewing food or biting down on something hard like there would be with natural teeth (due to their construction), you’ll be able to maintain your oral health much better overall!
Replacing missing teeth with dental implants has many benefits over traditional tooth replacement methods like dentures and bridges.
There are many benefits to replacing missing teeth with dental implants. Dental implants are a permanent and stable solution for replacing missing teeth. They can last a lifetime, often longer than the patient’s natural teeth would have lasted if they were still in place. Unlike dentures or bridges, which rely on neighboring teeth for support, dental implants do not require your own jawbone to be modified in order to attach them. This makes them more durable and less likely to cause problems over time.
Dental implants also improve your sense of taste by stabilizing your upper jawbone and allowing it to function as it did before you lost your natural teeth (or part of it).
These are just some of the many benefits you can enjoy with dental implants. If you have any questions about whether or not dental implants might be right for you, please contact us today at (209) 548-0100.
