What are the Benefits of Dental Implants? Call us at 501-753-7366 to schedule your FREE dental implant consultation! Dental implants offer many benefits for patients with missing teeth. They provide a natural look, give strength and stability to your bite and prevent bone loss and gum recession. Dental implants function like natural tooth roots and provide fixed solutions, allowing them to eliminate issues associated with removable dental restorations such as dentures. While some advantages may seem obvious, others not so much. Here's a list of some of the aesthetic and dental health advantages with implants. Act Just like Natural Teeth Perhaps the most important thing to note is dental implants function just like natural tooth roots. Therefore, your bite strength will be comparable to your natural teeth. Additionally, there is added stability with dental implants compared to removable dental restorations. Because dental implants function just like natural roots, bone loss and gum recession is eliminated (as a result of missing root structure). Aesthetic Improvements With traditional removable dentures, there is, at times, a noticeable seam line between the dental restoration and your natural gum line. (This seam can become more pronounced if your gums recede over time.) With dental implants, this seam line is essentially eliminated, which means that dental restorations appear even more natural. Improved Stability An obvious benefit with dental implants is they provide enhanced security and stability for dental bridges, dentures and individual dental crowns. Since the dental implants are fused with bone, they function just as natural tooth roots would. You don't need to worry about your dental restorations slipping out of place when yawning, laughing or speaking. Improved Bite Strength Because of the increased stability of your dental restorations, your bite strength is much better with dental implants (more so than it would be using removable dental restorations.) Slippage of the restorations while chewing is no longer a worry. Eliminates Cosmetic Problems Missing teeth can leave you embarrassed and feeling self-conscious about the appearance of your smile. In fact, multiple missing teeth can severely affect the appearance of your face when your mouth is closed, particularly around the lips. Dental implants will hold your dental restorations in place securely so that they look natural, restoring your appearance. Eliminates Bone Loss & Recession When you’re missing a tooth, many changes occur in the area of the tooth gap. Your jawbone and gum tissue in the area of the gap tend to recede, seeing as there's no longer a tooth or root to be supported. By getting dental implants, you will restore a root in the area of the gap, preventing bone loss and gum recession, both of which can have serious impact on your dental health. Eliminates Gradual Tooth Misalignment In addition to bone loss and gum recession, gradual tooth misalignment can occur when you lose a tooth or multiple teeth. Dental implants will not just restore the root structure and prevent the loss of bone density and recession of soft tissues, it will also hold dental restorations in place and prevent gradual tooth misalignment The overall quality of your life is enhanced with replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. With dental implants, your smile is more natural and your teeth function just as natural teeth. You'll love the comfort and best of all, you'll regain your confidence when speaking, smiling and eating.
