Are you impressed? Well if you aren’t yet, here are some amazing benefits that are unique to dental implants that might have you wondering if implants might just be the best option for treating your tooth loss.
The Next Best Option to Real Teeth
Of course, in a perfect world, everyone would be able to maintain their own natural teeth, but we know that this isn’t always possible; however, when tooth loss rears its ugly head you want a restoration that is as close to the real thing as possible. Enter dental implants. Implants don’t just look like real teeth they also function just like them. They restore chewing and speech so you can enjoy your false tooth the same way you would the rest of your natural smile.
Maintain a Healthy Jawbone
There are a lot of issues that can befall someone with untreated tooth loss. The most common problem is bone loss, which can still occur over time even if dental bridges or dentures are used to replace missing teeth. This is because the roots of your teeth provide the jawbone with the stimulation it needs.
So you can imagine that once a tooth falls out or is extracted that the jawbone will also start to deteriorate. Luckily, an implant acts as artificial tooth roots and are placed within the jawbone to provide the stimulation it needs to stop it from breaking down.
Keep Natural Teeth From Shifting Around
If you don’t treat your tooth loss over time your natural teeth will shift and move to fill in the gap or gaps left over by your missing teeth. As you might be able to imagine, this can lead to further issues with your smile including crooked teeth or gaps between teeth. By placing a false tooth you can prevent teeth from moving into those open spaces and causing a misaligned smile.
Don’t let tooth loss affect your oral health and your confidence. Turn to the dental experts at Zbaraschuk Dental Care in Sequim, WA, to help you regain the smile you deserve. You should feel confident in your appearance and dental implants can make that possible.
