Restore Missing Tooth Permanently With Dental Implants

Posted by Larsen Dental Care on Mar 23 2021, 09:56 PM

Losing teeth affects more than just the way you look. It can greatly affect your self-confidence, overall dental health and can keep you away from eating your favorite foods as well. While dentures and removable bridges may replace a missing tooth, they have their share of disadvantages. For people who are looking for a more stable, durable, and natural-looking way to replace missing teeth, dental implants are the answer. Implants have become much popular nowadays as they provide a secure, strong anchor for artificial replacement teeth. They have transformed millions of smiles by offering patients a non-removable prosthesis that functions as their own teeth, similar to their natural teeth. This takes patients out of dentures, decreases the amount of bridgework needed, and improves the overall oral functionality and aesthetics of the patient beyond measure.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small titanium screws, which are placed in the jawbone where teeth are missing. Through a process called osseointegration, the bone bonds with the titanium post, thus creating a strong foundation for the teeth. The metal anchors act as a substitute for tooth roots and provide secure anchors for placing artificial teeth or prosthetics.

The success of dental implants is ultimately determined by the amount of bone that remains following extractions or teeth loss. Therefore, consultation with an expert dentist is an important first step in the implant process.

Dental implants:

  • Look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
  • Allows eating virtually any type of food as you normally do.
  • Preserve facial structure.
  • It lets you flaunt your smile with confidence.
  • Prevent bone deterioration that may occur due to missing teeth.

Why Dental Implants?

A missing tooth can lead to the following consequences: 

  • Bone deterioration after tooth loss.
  • Shifting and drifting of the teeth.
  • Alteration in the bite.
  • Problems with jaw joint. 
  • Difficulty in chewing. 
  • Extra stress on the remaining teeth.

It is critically important to replace your missing teeth with dental implants to prevent these health consequences. 

Advantages of dental implants

Replacing your missing teeth with dental implants offer numerous benefits, chiefly that they:

  • Preserves the integrity of bone structure after tooth loss. 
  • Do not compromise the health of adjacent teeth, as there is no need for bridgework involved.
  • Acts as a replacement for loose-fitting dentures. 
  • Replacing a missing tooth with dental implants distribute bite forces evenly throughout the mouth. 
  • Dental implants feel and function like natural teeth
  • It helps improve the facial appearance by preventing bone deterioration and loss. 

Benefits of dental implants over traditional dentures and bridges.

Though traditional dentures, bridgework, and dental implants can improve the appearance of missing teeth, dental implants are more convenient, comfortable, and more natural-looking than the other two. Besides being a more aesthetic choice, dental implants also resemble more of your natural teeth in their feel and functionality. Above everything, with dental implants, there's no need to sacrifice adjacent teeth' health to provide support for bridgework.
