The benefits of restoring your smile after tooth loss can depend on many things, including what you consider the most beneficial aspect of the restoration. For example, if your smile’s appearance without one or more teeth is your greatest concern, then the most significant benefit of restoring your smile may be regaining its healthy, full look. However, there are many advantages that come with having a full smile, and when it comes to replacing lost teeth, dental implants often provide the most benefits.
Functioning like healthy, natural teeth
The goal of restoring your smile may seem to be reestablishing its healthy appearance, but more importantly, the idea is to restore your good oral health and your bite’s ability to function. Both of these can be significantly affected by the loss of even a single tooth, and many of the impacts are the result of the empty space in your dental ridge created by your missing tooth root. For a natural tooth, a healthy root provides the stability it needs to withstand your bite pressure effectively without becoming damaged, or shifting out of place. For your custom-designed replacement tooth, a dental implant can provide nearly the same level of stability, and therefore, a much higher level of functionality than a conventional restoration.
Looking like your healthy smile
In addition to the support of lifelike roots, dental implants are also coupled with highly lifelike dental restorations (i.e., full-arch bridges) that closely mimic the size, shape, and appearance of your healthy teeth. With lifelike materials and the support of anchored, root-like posts, dental implant restorations are often nearly indistinguishable from the rest of your smile. This means you can smile more confidently, as well as enjoy the improved bite function and oral health that dental implants can provide.
Maintaining your natural oral health
The long-term benefits of dental implants are tied to their everyday benefits in several ways. For example, dental implant posts don’t just support your restoration when you bite and chew, but also transfer the stimulation to your jawbone structure, which benefits from a healthy flow of nutrients as a result of it. Dental implants are the only option for replacing teeth roots that have been lost or extracted, and therefore, they’re the best option for addressing the loss of stimulation in your jawbone structure.
