After you’ve lost one or more teeth, rebuilding your smile as soon as possible is important to your long-term oral health. It requires not only replacing one or more lost teeth, but also addressing the impacts that losing teeth can have on your oral health. The real advantage of dental implant restorations is that they come equipped with root-like posts that mimic your healthy, natural teeth roots, which is something conventional restorations are unable to provide. This unique ability is the source of the many different benefits that dental implant restorations can offer.

The best replacement teeth mimic natural teeth

As dental restorations have advanced over the years, the trend has always been toward creating more lifelike solutions for repairing or replacing your natural tooth structure. This often comes in the form of using high-quality materials such as dental porcelain to closely replicate the appearance of healthy, natural tooth structure. When you lose a tooth, however, you’ve also lost the tooth’s root, and creating a lifelike replacement for it means replacing this lost root, as well. This is only possible with the help of a dental implant post, which is crafted from biocompatible titanium and designed for your jawbone to integrate with its surface.

Supportive implants keep your restoration steady

Mimicking your healthy, natural teeth roots gives your dental implant restoration a level of stability that more conventional dental restorations are unable to match. With one or more root-like posts supporting your restoration and anchoring it to your dental ridge, there’s no risk of your bridge or denture moving out of place when you bite, chew, or speak. This can have several positive implications on your long-term oral health as well as the quality and longevity of your replacement teeth.

Your jawbone needs replacement roots, too

Replacing a lost tooth as soon as possible is important for many reasons beyond gaining your confident smile back. Most importantly, the negative consequences of tooth loss can begin to impact your smile almost immediately, and the sooner you restore your smile, the better you can avoid these impacts. When it comes to the loss of your teeth roots, this is particularly important in maintaining the health and integrity of the rest of your oral structures. Your teeth roots are an important part of maintaining your jawbone’s strength and integrity. After losing one, the bone structure can lose mass and density as a result of the diminished stimulation. With the help of dental implants, your restoration will have the advantage of addressing this concern and helping you preserve the integrity of your smile’s foundation.
