Benefits of Implant Dentistry
Dental implants are a modern treatment for replacing missing teeth. This unique treatment involves the surgical implantation of small titanium posts into your jawbone. The posts are used to provide secure support for your replacement teeth. As you heal, your bone fuses to these posts, a process called osseointegration, stabilizing the posts within your jaw. At Solutions Dental Implants, we are proud to offer dental implants and are highly experienced in their placement. While implants involve a more invasive treatment, implant dentistry offers several significant benefits.
Regain Your Beautiful Smile
The ceramic crowns of your dental implants look just like natural teeth. Ceramic can be stained and finished to blend in perfectly with the color of your natural teeth. The material also reflects light just like your tooth enamel. With your teeth replaced, your smile is perfectly restored. With your smile restored, you regain your confidence.
Eat Without Fear
Dental implants are secured firmly in place. The posts integrate into your jaw in a process known as osseointegration. This process stabilizes the posts in your jaw. Your replacement teeth are then screwed into place on them. You can eat all of your favorite foods once again without fear of your teeth slipping around or falling out of place. Because your teeth are stable, you are also able to thoroughly chew your food, which can help to improve both your digestion and your overall nutrition.
Tooth loss impacts your ability to speak properly. You may develop a lisp or have difficulty communicating effectively. The ceramic crowns of dental implants feel exactly like your natural teeth. Not only does this perfectly restore your speech, but it also means that you do not have to relearn how to speak with a strange object in your mouth.
One of the biggest complaints about dentures is that they can be uncomfortable. Not only do dentures rely on your gums for support, tissue that was never designed to support the pressures that your teeth exert, but they can also slip out of place and rub your gums. This can lead to painful denture sores. These issues are avoided with dental implants. With implants, your teeth are supported by the implant posts, which are implanted into your jawbone like natural tooth roots. There is no pressure placed on your gums. Additionally, your teeth are held securely in place. You do not have to worry about your teeth slipping out of place and causing sores on your gums.
Protect the Health of Your Jawbone
With traditional tooth replacement treatments, your jawbone continues to change shape. This means that, over time, your restorations need to be replaced. Dental implants, however, are different. They are the only treatment that can stop, and prevent, bone loss in the jaw. This is because the posts are implanted directly into your jaw. There, they function just like the roots of your natural teeth, restoring the stimulation to the bone. This triggers the body to send once again essential nutrients that are required for the health of your jaw and surrounding areas. Dental implants are a long-term, even permanent, solution to tooth loss that protect the health and integrity of your jawbone in addition to restoring the other functions of your missing teeth.
