As we’ve discussed in previous blogs, tooth loss can have major impacts on the health and beauty of your smile, including misalignment, difficulty eating or speaking, or causing the patient to appear older. Fortunately, we offer a unique and sturdy option for restoring your smile. We’re looking at five benefits of dental implants.

The Advantages of Dental Implants

1. They look natural: We design your new teeth based on digital impressions taken of your smile. From the placement of the implant post to the creation of the restoration, we take your facial structure and smile into account. The result is a new tooth that looks natural and blends seamlessly with your smile.

2. The implants help prevent facial collapse: When you lose a tooth the body notices the loss of a tooth root. In responses, certain nutrients are no longer sent to the surrounding jawbone, causing it to dissolve. Soon, patients experience further tooth loss and develop an aged appearance. Since dental implants are placed directly into the jawbone the body registers them as natural teeth. The flow of nutrients resumes and you enjoy an end to further facial collapse.

3. Long lasting: On average, a dental bridge requires adjustment every five to ten years. Dentures may need adjustment or replacement every 5 to 15 years. A dental implant, however, can last for as long as 25 years.

4. Dental implants can secure a fixed prosthesis: If you require dentures due to multiple tooth loss often an implant can help. We will simply place multiple posts into one or both arches. Using them, we can secure a fixed prosthetic. The resulting dentures won’t slip during meals to speech.

5. Can help patients of all ages: As long as your have the adequate bone tissue to support the post or have gums free of periodontal disease you may qualify for an implant.
