There are a few solutions to replace missing teeth, however, in most cases, a dental implant is the ideal treatment. There are several advantages to choosing dental implants and we’re going to review those benefits. Functionality. A dental implant restoration not only replicates the crown (the biting surface of the tooth), it replaces the root structure as well. An implant post acts as the root and the surrounding bone provides stability. With a successful implant, the final restoration mimics the functionality and feel of an authentic tooth. The implant restoration will not shift or wiggle while chewing. We find that after some time many patients do not even remember which tooth is their implant!
Additionally, implants can be placed to help secure a denture. An implant supported denture has attachments that snap onto the implant post creating a more stable denture. Preserve healthy bone. Dental implants help sustain and stimulate your bone. Bone loss is common with empty spaces left from missing teeth and implants protect and maintain healthy bone. Value is another key benefit of dental implants because of the longevity of implants; they are a long term solution. Implants sit beneath the gums and are integrated into the jaw bone; they should last a lifetime. Implants need periodic maintenance, as with the rest of your smile. The way to support lasting function is to take good care of your gums, as an infection is the primary cause of implant failure. Authentic appearance. Historically, replacement teeth had an obvious appearance. However, with the modern techniques and materials that we use, coupled with the details of shape and color, lead to a natural look and beautiful smile.
