The Benefits of Dental Implants
Find out why dental implants are such a great way to replace missing teeth.
Tooth loss is an issue that needs to be treated right away. So many other issues can befall your smile because of tooth loss that before long can turn irreversible. Before this happens it’s time to see your Lakeville, MN dentist Dr. James Lesch to find out if dental implants are the best choice for you.
There are so many wonderful smile benefits when it comes to getting dental implants in Lakeville. Here are only some of the advantages you’ll enjoy when you get this restoration:
Almost like Natural Teeth
Even though there is nothing as durable and reliable as real teeth, dental implants do come in a close second. Implants are the only tooth replacement that functions just like tooth roots and fuses with your natural bone to become a permanent part of your mouth. No other restoration can do this!
Dental implants are made from a tough, resilient metal like titanium that is not only strong but is also biocompatible, which means it will naturally fuse with your jawbone. Because of this, an implant is designed to last the rest of your life, if you care for your smile and maintain good oral hygiene.
Maintains Healthy Bones
Once you lose a tooth there is no longer tooth roots to stimulate that part of the jawbone. As a result, the bone starts to deteriorate, causing your chin to recede and the cheeks to cave in. Before long, these problems will cause sagging skin and make you appear older than you are. While other restorations may help you retain your facial structure for a little while the only restoration that really can prevent these issues from happening in the first place is a dental implant.
Replaces Multiple Teeth
While a single implant is designed to hold one dental crown this doesn’t mean that patients with more than one missing tooth can’t benefit. In fact, we can place more than one implant into the jawbone to secure partial or even a full set of dentures in place. Implants can make some restorations that seem less reliable actually feel stable and more secure.
