Dental implants are the platinum standard in restorative dentistry. Dental implants are permanent solution when someone may be missing one or more teeth. The implant connects directly to your jawbone like a natural tooth root, which supports the tooth restorations. Each implant is attached to an abutment that can support various tooth restorations like crowns or overdentures. While you may be aware of dental implants and how they can replace one or more teeth, you may not be aware of all the benefits these restorations offer over other tooth replacements. Here are some of the extraordinary benefits that can come with dental implant tooth or smile restorations.
Prevention of Bone Loss
When you lose a tooth, the root is no longer there to stimulate bone growth. People who have lost one or more teeth can have their jawbones diminish over the years, changing their facial structure. Dentures, dental bridges, and other tooth restorations do not stimulate bone growth, but a dental implant can along with the use of other technology, like the BLAST protocol we offer at ConfiDENT.
Dental implants are inserted into the jawbone and fuse with the bone. New bone material is sometimes added to help support the implant and promote long term success and stability of the implant. If a patient decides to not do an implant and moves forward with a denture or bridge, over time they may begin to notice their lower face becoming more sunken as they lose bone, creating an older facial appearance. Dental implants can help keep new bone forming as they shift and move just like natural teeth roots within the jawbone, in conjunction with BLAST our laser technology that is the only FDA cleared laser for bone regeneration. This can maintain your jaw structure, helping keep your face more youthful than if you had other types of tooth restorations.
Dental implants are adhered to your jawbones, giving you functionality like no other tooth restoration. No slipping or rubbing like dentures, and stronger chewing ability than bridges or other tooth replacements. You can use your new teeth with confidence, laughing, smiling, and talking during social situations without worrying about any malfunctions.
Dental Implants to Fit Your Lifestyle and Budget
There are so many different options you can choose when you decide to use dental implants for tooth replacement. Dental implants can replace single teeth, with each implant representing a new tooth, attached to an abutment and covered with a beautiful, natural-appearing crown. For individuals missing many teeth or all teeth, there are options like a hybrid denture that is created to replace an entire arch or both arches. An implant over denture is attached to 4-6 dental implants. Giving patients the opportunity to have a beautiful smile without the dreaded fear of having your dentures become loose or no longer fitting properly. The most common thing we hear at ConfiDENT is that patients just want to be able to eat comfortably again, without having to worry if their dentures are going to come out if they eat the hamburger or laugh too hard!
