Restoring your smile means helping it regain its good health and full function, as well as its healthy and natural appearance. To do that, modern restorations must closely replicate the healthy and natural forms of your teeth, especially when that restoration’s goal is to replace one or more of them. While most modern dental restorations can be designed with a high degree of realism, only one option can completely replace all of your lost tooth’s structure. That option is a restoration that’s supported by one or more dental implant posts, which are the only solution for replacing the roots of your lost teeth.

When it comes to replacing lost teeth

The importance of realism is especially powerful when it comes to replacing one or more lost teeth. The goal isn’t just to replicate the way your healthy, natural smile should look, but also the way all of your teeth and oral structures work together to facilitate your bite’s function. This function largely relies on balance, which is highly influenced by the size, shape, contour, and alignment of your teeth. When a tooth is lost, its replacement should be able to replicate all of these aspects, as well as the support and comfort that your healthy teeth enjoy thanks to their roots.

What traditional restorations are lacking

A traditional dental restoration, such as a bridge or denture, can often do a great job of resembling the size, shape, and appearance of your healthy teeth. This is thanks largely to the advancement of dental technologies, which allow for more precise measuring and molds of your dental ridges. Also, the use of more lifelike materials, such as porcelain, allow for restorations to be crafted and customized to closely resemble healthy, natural tooth structure. However, the conventional designs of the restorations lack one important feature – the the roots that your healthy teeth rely on for support.

The advanced benefits of dental implants

The unique nature of everyone’s teeth and oral health makes customizing dental restorations especially important. Yet, nearly everyone who’s experienced tooth loss can benefit from adding an appropriate number of dental implant posts to their restorations. Many of the most immediate benefits include the improved comfort and support of your restoration. For example, being anchored in placed means your restoration can allow you to comfortably bite and chew a greater variety of foods. In the long run, replacing your lost teeth roots also has a significant advantage in preserving your smile, especially your jawbone structure that relies on the stimulation your teeth roots provide.
