To truly restore your smile after suffering tooth loss, today’s dental prostheses are designed to precisely match the size, shape, contour, and appearance of your healthy, natural teeth. However, no healthy, natural tooth is complete without a root to support it, and conventional bridges and dentures don’t come with a solution for that. With dental implants, we can custom-design dental prostheses that offer a more complete solution for rebuilding your smile by replacing your lost teeth roots. The implant posts act like roots to support your bridge or a denture in a more comfortable and lifelike way than traditional solutions can offer.
The innovation of dental implants
Dental implants are one of the most beneficial options for replacing lost teeth, but they’re also a recent innovation compared to more traditional bridges and dentures. In the several decades that they’ve been around, though, dental implants have also proven to be one of the most comprehensive ways of restoring your smile’s appearance and function, as well as preserving your healthy, natural smile. To mimic a natural tooth root, a dental implant is designed to make it possible for your jawbone to heal to it after the post is placed. This means using biocompatible material, like titanium, to craft your implant post and allowing it to become a part of your smile’s foundation.
The extras that come with replacement roots
The fact that they’re the only solution for replacing lost teeth roots gives dental implants an obvious and unique advantage – they can support your prosthesis better. However, improving its support system can, itself, have several benefits that you might not expect at first. For example, the greater support means you can bite and chew a greater variety of foods with optimal comfort and stability. You won’t have to worry about things like clasps, which are common for partial dentures, or adhesives if you wear a complete denture. Most importantly, you can also benefit from the restored stimulation in your jawbone, which is only possible with the help of the implanted, root-like posts.
Can you upgrade your existing prosthesis?
Custom-designing a dental crown, bridge, or denture that’s supported on dental implants may be the best way to address tooth loss. Yet, if you already wear a conventional prosthesis to replace your lost teeth, that doesn’t mean you can’t upgrade it to one that comes with dental implant posts. If you qualify for dental implants, we can design an appropriate prosthesis to replace your existing one so you can enjoy the many important benefits of dental implants.
