If you find yourself with one or several missing teeth, consider receiving dental implants.The reason for the missing teeth make no difference in this situation. Whether the tooth or teeth have been lost because of decay, injury or gum disease does not change which solution is best for your situation. We have patients that have dealt with each of these conditions but now have their natural, beautiful smiles restored. Having the natural smile restored gives confidence to smile, laugh and eat in public.
What are the Benefits from Dental Implants?
Dental implants offer many benefits to anyone missing a single tooth or several teeth. One thing on many people’s list of concerns is how others may view the dental implant. That is not a problem though. Because of advances in the aesthetics of dentures, the implants look just like natural, normal teeth. The implants are embedded directly into the gum and jaw giving the appearance of a natural, healthy tooth.
Comfort is another concern people have when undergoing any dental changes. When thinking of dentures and bridges, there is usually a bulky base included. Implants do not require a base of any kind. The dental implant is embedded directly into the gum and jaw giving the appearance and feel of a natural tooth. Dental implants are comfortable and natural. You will forget that the implant is not your original tooth.
Another issue that not everyone thinks about when missing a tooth or several teeth, is how this affects the jaw bone. By using a bridge or dentures to replace teeth, your jawbone is not getting the support it needs. Dental implants do provide a solid support for your bone structure. The dental implants help maintain the integrity of your jawbone and stop the bone structure from dissolving. Implants also stop your remaining teeth from shifting. Dental implants are created to last a lifetime.
