The Benefits of Dental Implants
Back to Dental Implants Home Page
Missing teeth have a negative impact on one's self esteem. Whether you experienced injury or had advanced tooth decay, losing a tooth or teeth can be traumatic in many ways. While there are some situations that are impossible to avoid, you do not have to worry about living with gaps in your smile. Restorative dentistry allows dentists to replace the gaps in your smile, giving you back the beauty and the function of your teeth. At Brentwood Family Dental, we often suggest dental implants for our patients due to their many benefits.
Dental implants function as a replacement for the natural tooth root that is missing. They are surgically placed into the jawbone. Over time, the jawbone fuses around the implant, providing strength and stability. Once this process is complete, a prosthetic such as a dental crown, bridge, or even dentures can be connected to the implant. The result is a complete smile that patients can count on for durability and beauty.
The benefits of dental implants include:
- Strength – While the dental implant process is not quick, it is for a good reason. Once the bone has healed around the implant, the restoration is strong and durable. You can have confidence in the ability to bite and chew with the same strength as with natural teeth.
- Functionality – Dental implants function just like natural teeth. Other restorations such as dentures sit on top of the gums, leaving them susceptible to movement. Many denture-wearers may experience sores from rubbing along the gums and often worry about the potential for the device to slide out of place or even fall out. Dental implants are secure in place, allowing you to speak clearly and smile with confidence.
- Beauty – Whether you are receiving a single crown, or an arch of dentures, you will be fitted with a custom fabricated restoration that will fit in your mouth. Having the strength of the implant combined with the natural looking restoration means that no one will ever know you have artificial teeth.
