There are many definitive reasons why replacing lost teeth with dental implants is an objectively better choice for many tooth loss patients. However, everyone’s smile is unique, and so are their motivations for seeking to rebuild their smiles after losing teeth. For some, they wish mostly to restore the confidence they once had in their full, healthy, and attractive smiles. Others may be more motivated by what they’ve learned of the effects that tooth loss will have on their oral health. In most cases, however, dental implants remain the best solution for addressing the various motivations you may have for wanting to fully restore your smile.
You recently lost one or more teeth
If you’ve recently experienced tooth loss, then it makes sense to take a moment and consider your best option for replacing it. A conventional dental bridge is the more traditional solution. Consisting of a highly lifelike replacement tooth and one or a pair of supportive dental crowns, the bridge can be secured to the healthy adjacent teeth to close the gap in your smile. However, a dental implant-supported replacement tooth may be the better solution. Instead of relying on crowns and the support of your healthy teeth, an implant post can be inserted into your jawbone where the lost tooth’s root once rested, then topped with your custom replacement crown.
You need a new bridge or denture
If it’s been a while since you’ve lost one or more teeth, then you may already rely on a dental bridge or denture to restore your smile. Modern bridges and dentures can offer satisfactory results for restoring your smile’s appearance and much of your bite’s function. Yet, after a while, they can become loose and no longer fit as well as they used to. When it’s time for a new restoration, ask about improving your next one with the support of one or more dental implants. The posts help preserve the integrity of your restoration while also preventing it from becoming loose and shifting over time.
You want a better dental restoration
Even if it isn’t time to replace your bridge or denture yet, you may have heard enough about dental implants to realize how they can enhance your restoration. Replacing lost teeth roots is vital to preserving your jawbone and oral structures as well as providing better support for your restoration. The sooner you choose to upgrade your restoration, the sooner your dental implants can reestablish vital stimulation in your jawbone and reduce the risks of further oral health troubles.
