Dental Implants: The Long-Term Missing Tooth Solution
Dental implants are unlike any other tooth restoration solution. In fact, they are the only option that helps preserve the jaw bone. The implant post is embedded into the jaw bone, similar to a tooth’s root. When you chew, the post stimulates the jaw bone. This keeps it healthy and strong, along with your other teeth roots.
Removable bridges and dentures only sit on top of the ridge in your mouth and do not protect your jaw bone. Without stimulation, the jaw will deteriorate over time. This can lead to sagging facial features or dental misalignment. Additionally, many people with dentures dislike the sores caused by ill-fitting appliances. Because dental implants are embedded into the jaw, there are no moving parts and no sores.
Whether you’re looking to replace a single tooth or an entire arch of teeth, your dental implant can serve your smile for a lifetime. Dental care for your implants includes brushing, flossing, and seeing your dentist for checkups. Caring for your replacement teeth is as easy as caring for your natural teeth. They are designed to replicate natural teeth, both in function and appearance, and when cared for properly, will last a lifetime.
