Dental Implants for Replacing Missing Teeth
Eat the Foods You Love
For many years, the only options for missing teeth were bridges and dentures, but dental implants provide a strong foundation and are like your own teeth; dental implants can restore the look and feel of your natural teeth.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are the best way to replace missing teeth. They are advantageous over bridgework because adjacent teeth are not altered. Dental implants can improve your appearance, help you eat the foods you love once again, boost your self confidence, and allow you to speak with greater clarity. Best of all, dental implants are the only restoration option for missing teeth that preserves and stimulates natural bone and prevents bone loss.
When you chew with an incomplete set of teeth, the stress on the remaining teeth can cause them to loosen and eventually fall out. Replacing missing teeth is important because it can affect your overall health; not just your ability to enjoy chewing foods. The benefits or dental implants are:
- improved appearance
- improved speech
- improved comfort – eliminate the adhesive, the discomfort and noise of removable dentures.
- Improved oral health – bridges require the alteration and support of neighboring teeth
- durability – with good care, implants can last a lifetime
- maintaining healthy bone levels in your mouth – over time, dentures can cause “puckering” of the mouth.
