One of the many questions that accompany implant dentistry is how feasible it is. After you’re your teeth are among the strongest bones in your body, and have been scientifically proven to be as hard as steel, if not harder. With that in mind, it almost seems unlikely a structure will face significant harm, yet many individuals every year must make the decision to have a tooth removed and replaced. In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX oral surgeon explores our dental implant restorations’ durability, as well as how an implant serves to improve bite function.
Absorbing Bite Pressure
It goes without saying that various aspects of your oral cavity – teeth, tongue, gums, cheeks, throat – contribute to the overall health of your smile. Indeed, many of these structures work together to accomplish routine tasks, including biting, chewing, eating, and even enunciating.
You see, your roots are embedded in the jaw bone securely, creating a sort of anchor-like relationship that allows your crown to properly absorb the pressure of your bite. The benefit for your jaw is that the implant stimulates the bone, allowing it to remain strong.
When seeking dental implants, one of the major purposes aside from completing your appearance is to restore aspects of your bite. Indeed, your teeth absorb the bite pressure equally, which means if one or more teeth are missing, your bite must readjust and strain to accommodate the gaps.
In a similar way, the biocompatible implant post is intended to function as an artificial root. This not only helps restore your bite, but also helps stimulate the jaw bone once more to keep it strong and healthy. To learn more about this process, reach out to our team today.
Aiding Your Function
Whether you are aware of it or not, your oral function is one of the more important roles of your smile. After all, routine tasks such as eating are necessary for survival, and if you cannot bite or chew properly, ensuring you are consuming enough sustenance becomes difficult.
Indeed, a custom dental implant post and restoration can help accomplish these tasks by restoring your smile to nearly one hundred percent, and it is always better to seek treatment sooner rather than later. For more information, reach out today.
Ensuring Proper Care
Even though your implant may not require the same type of care that your natural teeth do, it is crucial to make an effort and ensure they are taken care of. This means attending necessary office visits, paying mind to what you eat, and more.
