Unlike some dental health concerns, tooth loss is hard to ignore. Even if you can’t see the empty space in your smile because the tooth is at the back of your dental ridge, you’ll likely feel the difference when you speak, and when you bite and chew your food. When you replace your lost tooth or teeth with a custom, lifelike implant restoration, you not only address what’s obvious about your tooth loss, but also the things that you don’t notice are occurring.
Regaining your confident smile
When your tooth loss is visibly noticeable, that visible impact could be the most significant one to affect your daily life. Therefore, one of the most immediately noticeable benefits of replacing your lost teeth is regaining the confident, healthy appearance of your smile whenever you show it off. Dental implants are designed to replace lost teeth with optimal realism, including the roots that support your natural teeth. The visible portion of the restoration is also designed to closely mimic the healthy, natural, visible structures of your teeth. With the support of root-like posts, your restoration can sit more comfortably and naturally, blending in almost seamlessly with your healthy smile.
Giving your bite its full function back
More lifelike support for your custom dental restoration means that, every time you bite, chew, and speak, it will remain as steady and stable as your healthy teeth. This isn’t just visibly beneficial, but also important to improving the overall function of your restoration. Your teeth and, from now on, your dental restoration are the most-used parts of your body. Replicating the support that your healthy, natural teeth rely on is one of the most important and unique advantages of dental implants.
Keeping your smile healthy long-term
The more of your natural tooth structure you can replace and restore, the better it is for your immediate and long-term oral health. For example, when you lose the roots of your teeth, the loss can cause the surrounding jawbone structure to resorb and become smaller over time. This can have several significant and negative impacts on your oral health over time, and the only effective way of addressing these concerns is by replacing your lost teeth roots with dental implants.
