If you’ve lost one or more teeth and are searching for the most lifelike way to replace them, you may have already heard of dental implants. Yet, with so much information to sort through, how can you be sure that they’re really the best choice for rebuilding your smile? At our Corona, CA, dental office, we can help you make sure that any choice you make for your smile is the right one, including choosing dental implants to fully restore your smile following tooth loss.
Why do they matter?
Dental implants are advanced prosthetic options that are made specifically to replace your lost teeth roots. Unlike traditional prostheses, like bridges and dentures that sit on top of your dental ridge, implant posts are inserted into your jawbone, in place of your lost teeth roots. They can be used to more successfully support and stabilize your dental bridge or denture, giving it a more lifelike and comfortable feel.
How do they benefit you?
Because dental implants mimic the structures and support of your healthy, natural teeth roots, they offer much more significant benefits for your oral health. For example, dental implants can:
- Eliminate shifting bridges and dentures – Traditional bridges and dentures may begin to shift over time as they lose their original grip. With dental implants, your prosthesis will be anchored in place, making it impossible to shift uncomfortably along your dental ridges when you bite, speak, chew, and smile.
- Stop your jawbone from growing weaker – Implants help keep your jawbone stimulated even after it’s lost one or more teeth roots. This means it’s less likely to suffer from nutrient deficiency and begin to shrink over time, which could raise your risks of losing more teeth later on.
- Last for life, with proper care and maintenance – Dental implant posts are designed for your jawbone to fuse to their surfaces after they’ve been implanted. This makes them permanent parts of your jawbone’s anatomy, and with proper care and maintenance, they can remain strong and healthy for life.
