Dental Implants Prevent Teeth From Shifting:
Teeth work together to withstand the enormous forces generated when chewing. Teeth like to have neighbors top and bottom and front and back. When a tooth is lost the remaining teeth will start to drift / tilt into the missing space trying to find the missing tooth. This causes the remaining teeth to have to withstand more chewing forces. Furthermore, the awkwardly positioned teeth are more susceptible to decay as the tilted teeth are harder to clean. Lastly, the shifted teeth can cause jaw joint (TMJ) pain.
It is important to replace missing teeth to prevent numerous problems. While there are old fashioned ways to replace missing teeth like dental bridges or partial dentures , these options also have problems. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement options that do not damage adjacent teeth, preserve bone levels and prevent shifting teeth. Dental implants look, feel and function like real teeth. Also, dental implants are the longest lasting tooth replacement option available.
Dental implants are the perfect option to replacing missing teeth. Dental implants preserve the jaw bone, prevent teeth from shifting, do not damage adjacent teeth and will never get decay. Get the most modern dental treatment possible. Don’t settle for old fashioned solutions.
