When it comes to replacing teeth that are missing or damaged, you have several options. However, one option stands out above the rest is dental implants. Dental implants offer benefits that other tooth replacement options, like dentures or bridges, just can’t offer. Here are the top benefits of this innovative option:
Prevents Bone Loss
When you lose teeth, you also tend to lose bone mass in your jaw. Your jawbone needs the stimulation it gets when your teeth connect to maintain its mass. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that also replaces that jaw bone stimulation, helping to prevent bone loss.
Matches Your Natural Teeth
Dental implants come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Your dentist will work with you to design implants that match the color of your surrounding teeth and fit perfectly in the gap. No one but you and your dentist will know which teeth are implants.
Restores Bite Force
Because dental implants are anchored into your jaw with a titanium post that replaces the tooth root, they allow you to bite with more or less the same amount of force you could use with your natural teeth. Other tooth replacement options do not restore nearly as much of your bite force because they sit on top of the gums and aren’t anchored in place.
