Benefits of Dental Implants
- Missing teeth are damaging to overall dental health. A missing tooth causes other teeth to shift and collapse into the empty space. This causes gum tissue and decay problems from in the increased difficulty of keeping the teeth clean. Furthermore, TMJ (jaw joint) problems arise when the teeth shift and hit each other excessively during eating.
- Missing teeth can make you look older than you actually are. Also, missing teeth has a negative social stereotype.
- The jawbone is responsible for supporting the teeth. When a tooth is lost the bone is no longer need. Thus, the bone starts to dissolve and soften. The gum tissue levels also recede. Not only is this a cosmetic concern, but it is also a huge dental engineering problem.
- Dental implants produce chewing forces that are equal to natural teeth. Patients can have an improved diet because they are not limited by what they can eat. Patients with partial dentures or dentures tend to eat a soft diet. Dental implants are permanently attached to the jaw and look and function like natural teeth. This allows implant patients the freedom to eat any food they want.
Dental implants will definitely improve your smile and improve overall health. When a tooth is lost the bone that supported that tooth will deteriorate and vanish. This effects the jawbone and and surrounding teeth and can result in additional tooth loss.
Furthermore, when teeth are lost the adjacent teeth will migrate into the empty space. This causes teeth the shift and loose stability.
