Why Replace Missing Teeth With An Implant?
Did you know that losing teeth and not having them replaced can cause your jaw bone to grow weaker and fall apart? It’s true!
For this reason, implants are often a better option than dentures. If you lose teeth and opt for a denture, your jawbone can “melt away” from disuse. This can be detrimental to your entire mouth’s health not just your appearance. The longer it’s missing, the more likely problems are to occur. A simple denture doesn’t fix the problem. You will still lose your jaw bone because it is not supporting teeth. A dental implant will help retain the bone, and enable you to have a healthy mouth.
Benefits of Dental Implants
A dental implant is placed in the jawbone then fuses to it providing the foundation for replacement teeth. Since this foundation is attached directly to the jawbone, it is still in use and won’t waste away. Dental implants for missing teeth is one of the only ways to achieve the feel and functionality of your natural teeth. Implants can last a lifetime, help you retain your natural face and smile, and you can eat everything you would with your natural teeth.
