Rebuilding your smile is an important undertaking, most importantly because of the long-term effects that tooth loss can have on your smile if it isn’t addressed promptly. For example, your other teeth become more susceptible to problems, including loss. Your jawbone becomes weaker due to a loss of mass and density. At our Ft. Worth, TX, dental implant office, we often recommend replacing lost teeth with dental implants to help patients avoid or overcome these effects. However, there are also many more immediate benefits that patients experience when they rebuild their smiles with implants.
Your replacement teeth won’t move
Dental implants are designed to replace your lost teeth roots, and that means several different things. For example, like healthy teeth roots, implant posts anchor your replacement teeth to your dental ridge, rather than securing them with abutment teeth, hidden clasps, or adhesives. Implanted anchors prevent your restoration from becoming loose over time and shifting on your dental ridge when you bite, chew, speak, and smile. The enhanced comfort and stability help make your implants feel more like your healthy, natural teeth.
You can bite and chew more naturally
Biting and chewing your food may pose the biggest risk for forcing a traditional restoration out of place. This is unfortunate, considering the fact that biting and chewing are your teeth’s biggest responsibilities and most frequent actions. If your replacement teeth can’t remain steady, then it can’t fully rebuild your smile. With the anchored support of dental implant posts, however, you can once again enjoy all of your favorite foods without worrying about how they’ll affect the appearance or comfort of your replacement teeth.
You can speak and smile more confidently
As replacement teeth grow loose over time, they may shift noticeably even when you aren’t biting and chewing. Every time you speak or smile you may risk the prosthesis moving even just a little bit, which can be both uncomfortable and embarrassing (if anyone notices). The confidence that comes with more supportive, more lifelike dental implant posts helps eliminate that concern so you can carry on every day with the utmost confidence.
