The Long Term Benefits of Dental Implants
From giving you a durable, beautiful, and functional solution to your lost tooth to boosting your confidence, dental implants are quickly becoming the most sought-after tooth replacement option for restoring smiles. Implants are made up of a titanium screw that’s implanted into the jawbone and a crown at the top. They can accurately imitate the look and function of real teeth. Here at the Complete Family Dentistry in Waukesha, WI, our dentists, Dr. Joel Jahimiak, Dr. Cathleen Meiling, and Dr. Kendra Daniels, recommend dental implants because of the many benefits it can offer.
Keep Your Teeth From Moving
Teeth shifting occur when a missing tooth leaves a gap that your jawbone will compensate for by gradually moving your remaining teeth toward the gap. When you fill in this gap with a dental implant, however, your real teeth will remain in their correct positions.
Stimulate and Maintain Bone Integrity
If you have a missing tooth, the portion of the jawbone that once supported it would eventually deteriorate due to a lack of stimulation from tooth roots. With a dental implant to act as an artificial tooth root, the jawbone will be continuously stimulated and its bone density preserved.
Give Your Self-Esteem a Major Boost
Aside from the long-term benefits of dental implants mentioned above, they likewise make people smile confidently again. You may also find your speech improving since a lost tooth could make it hard to pronounce certain words correctly.
Take Great Pleasure in Eating Again
You will never need to worry about implants suddenly falling out when you eat since they’re permanently fused into your jawbone. In addition, because they work exactly like your natural teeth, you can certainly use them for eating all the food you enjoyed prior to losing your teeth.
