The wide range of options you have when it comes to replacing your lost teeth might make it more challenging to choose the best one for your smile. Fortunately, most are designed according to your severity of your tooth loss, from a dental bridge for mild tooth loss to a complete denture for total tooth loss. One solution, however, is appropriate for most patients regardless of how many teeth they’ve lost. With dental implant posts, which are designed to replace the roots of your lost teeth, your dental bridge or denture can enjoy a higher level of comfort, stability, and realism than its traditional form.
How they feel when you use them
The way dental implant restorations feel compared to conventional ones is one of their most notable advantages. Dental implants secure your restoration the way teeth roots secure your healthy, natural teeth – by anchoring them in place. Compared to traditional bridges, which are bonded to abutment teeth, or partial/full dentures that use clasps/adhesives for support, implant posts offer a greater level of comfort when you bite, chew, speak, and smile. This comfort not only makes your dental implant restoration feel more lifelike, but also perform more like your healthy, natural, root-supported teeth.
How they stay in place long afterward
The greater level of comfort that implants offer can often be immediately noticeable, especially if you’re already used to wearing a conventional dental bridge or denture. It also has a longer-term consequence for your smile restoration; with the help of dental implants, it will stay securely in place without ever shifting or moving along your dental ridge. This is common for traditional replacement teeth for a variety of reasons, including the changing shape of your jawbone following the loss of your teeth roots. Implants can address most or all of those reasons, allowing your replacement teeth to stay comfortably and securely in place for much longer.
How they interact with your jawbone
For your oral health’s sake, the roots of your teeth serve several purposes beyond just offering them structural support. They also signal your body to your send your jawbone minerals and nutrients when you bite and chew. This vital function can only be reestablished by replacing teeth roots that have been lost with an appropriate number of dental implant posts.
