The biggest advancements in modern dental health care have often come in the form of creating more lifelike and comprehensive solutions to rebuilding and replacing natural tooth structure. This includes replacing teeth that are lost or extracted entirely with custom-designed restorations that closely mimic the healthy, natural appearance of your teeth. For example, today, many dental restorations that are designed to replace lost teeth are made with biocompatible, root-like posts that replicate the functions of your lost teeth roots. This enables you to more fully rebuild your smile by more closely replicating the complete, natural structures of your teeth.

The parts of a healthy, natural tooth

A healthy, natural tooth is comprised of more than the crown structure that rests on your gums. Underneath the crown is the tooth’s root, which is connected to your jawbone structure and secured within its own socket. The root of a tooth isn’t visible, but it plays a significant role in everything from supporting the tooth’s crown as you bite and chew to stimulating the dental ridge that supports it. While traditional dental restorations can closely mimic the visible crowns of your lost teeth, your restoration will require an appropriate number of dental implant posts to replace the roots of your lost teeth.

The role of dental implant posts in modern restorations

Dental implants have been a highly successful solution to tooth loss for decades, and their biocompatibility has continued to benefit patients years after their placement. The role of a dental implant posts is unique, and like a natural tooth root, is isn’t always immediately obvious. In addition to offering your dental restoration support, dental implants also help maintain the strength and integrity of your jawbone. Following the loss of one or more teeth roots, this structure can be compromised and lose mass and density due to the loss of stimulation. Dental implant posts not only give your restoration a more comfortable and sturdy base, but also help you preserve more of your healthy smile and facial appearance.

Why a complete tooth replacement matters?

Replacing lost teeth has always mattered in dental health care, and the problems associated with lost teeth roots have always been significant. However, only dental implants are able to successfully address these problems, and the significance of this can prove important to your long-term oral health as well as your immediate smile and restoration’s function. By mimicking healthy teeth roots, dental implant posts are able to prevent some of the concerns that can lead to longer term complications, such as lost mass and density in your jawbone and facial structures.
