Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants can serve as both a restorative and a preventive measure. Not only do they replace missing teeth, but they also forestall dental problems and promote oral health. At OHIOSmiles, we use high-grade materials and high-tech equipment to ensure that dental implants serve our patients successfully for a lifetime. We have done that successfully in mounting caseloads of patients who’ve lost a tooth or many teeth, including those with severe oral problems like those with a degraded jaw, receding gums, and more. We also use dental implants in combination with other restorations like crowns, bridges, and dentures to tailor our restoration solutions to each patient’s unique needs.
Dental Implants are a Perfect Replica of Natural Teeth
Dental implants look and function exactly like natural teeth, replicating their physical appearance, and chewing power. Although some patients may never get back the feel of their natural teeth, they’ll find their implants sturdy, effective, and aesthetically appealing enough to serve as an ideal replacement for their normal teeth. They can eat, speak, brush, and floss regularly with their dental implant.
Dental Implants Are a Lifetime Investment
No other dental restoration comes close to lasting as long as dental implants. With high-grade titanium roots fixated deep inside the jawbone, dental implants can remain steadfastly in place throughout your lifetime. Also, it is made of biocompatible materials, meaning it easily bonds with your body.
A Superior Dental Restoration
Dental implants outperform other alternative replacements in just about every aspect. Compared to dentures that can slide around the mouth, dental implants remain rooted in place even during intense physical activities. They allow you to eat and speak better compared to dentures and bridges. Dental implants also generally feel more comfortable than dentures and bridges.
A Bone Preservative
Bone loss is usually a consequence of prolonged hiatus resulting from the absence of tooth roots that stimulate the bone. On average, a person loses 25% of bone mass around the site of a tooth loss every year when the lost tooth isn’t replaced. Dentures might even worsen the bone loss because they slide around more often, colliding with and wearing down the bony ridge. But with a root firmly attached to the bone, dental implants provide effective intensities of stimuli needed for optimal bone health.
Promoting Proper Teeth Formation
Teeth usually spread out to fill the space left behind by missing teeth and this may destabilize teeth formation. With your teeth drifting out of place, you may have difficulties chewing and speaking, not to mention the undesirable sight of distorted teeth. And the problem becomes more difficult to arrest the more it festers.
Promoting Healthier Lifestyles
Dental implants make it easier to care for your teeth because they eliminate the pockets of spaces around the site of the missing teeth that are hard to reach and harbor food particles and bacteria. With optimal oral care that dental implants promote comes optimal oral health that keeps ailments like gum infections, bad breath, and tooth decay at bay. Also, since bone loss can cause the lower third of the face to start shrinking, dental implants can help you maintain a healthier, younger appearance.
