Dental Implants Have Many Advantages
Tooth loss has consequences that can affect your mouth’s appearance and basic functions like chewing and speaking. Tooth loss also impacts the health of the jaw bone, causing it to shrink and prematurely age your facial appearance.
Dental implant restorations are the only treatment for tooth loss that addresses all of the side effects produced by missing teeth. Contact Dr. Bassam Issa at Calumet Dental & Implant Center to learn more about how dental implants restore beauty, function, and health to your smile.
What makes dental implants different from traditional tooth replacement options is their ability to restore both teeth and teeth roots. Implants provide a stable anchor for prosthetic teeth, and their permanence means you never have to worry about them. With dental implants, you avoid your dentures from:
- Slipping out of place
- Rubbing against fragile gum tissue
- Becoming uncomfortable and ill-fitting
- Obstructing the palate
Implant Posts Support Several Prosthetics
When implants are placed into the jaw, bone fuses with the implants. Usually, within four months, implants provide your bite with the same strength and function as natural tooth roots.
Natural and appealing porcelain restorations are attached using abutments to the posts. Restorations may be for a single missing tooth, a row of teeth, or a full arch.
Dental Implants Promote a Youthful Smile
An amazing health benefit of implants is their ability to rejuvenate the jaw bone. After tooth loss, the jaw undergoes a process known as resorption, which is the deterioration of bone tissue. When the jaw bone does not have the stimulation of tooth roots, it shrinks, which can prematurely age your facial appearance.
