The specific details surrounding tooth loss are different for everyone who experiences it. From the reason you’ve experienced tooth loss to the time it’s been since you’ve lost one or more teeth, as well the specific ways in which your condition affects your oral health, are all unique to you. Because of this, the specific benefits that dental implants provide when replacing your lost teeth can also related to the state of your tooth loss and oral health. Today, we examine a few times when receiving dental implants is a good option, and how they can benefit your immediate and long-term oral health.

Stopping the consequences of tooth loss

The moment you lose a tooth or have one extracted, the consequences of that loss can begin to impact your oral health. The balance of your bite won’t be the same, and that discrepancy can expose your other teeth to subsequent damage and other risks. The loss of the root, especially, can have negative impact on the jawbone and oral structures that support the rest of your healthy, natural teeth. The best way to prevent this is to replace the root of your lost tooth as soon as possible with a dental implant, which will restore stimulation in your jawbone as well as provide more lifelike support for your custom restoration.

Restoring the functions of your lost teeth

The more teeth you lose, the more the consequences of that loss can impact your oral health, including the overall function of your bite. In addition to throwing your bite off balance, the loss of more teeth means the loss of your bite’s power, and the increased risks of diminished health and integrity of your other oral structures. With the help of dental implant posts, your custom dental bridge or denture will be able to restore not only the ability to bite and chew, but also the function of preserving your smile’s foundation in the long run.

Improving the function of your restoration

Improving your overall bite function is one thing, but if you’ve worn a dental bridge or denture for a while, then you may notice that it can only function a fraction as well as your healthy, natural teeth. For many people, the restoration can begin to shift and lose its grip over time, as well. With the support of one or more dental implant posts, however, your restoration can enjoy significantly improved stability and support, allowing it to function more like your healthy, natural teeth.
