Recovering from tooth loss is an important part of modern dental care, and for many patients, dental implants are often the preferred method of doing so. That’s because they offer your replacement teeth something that your smile desperately needs – effective replacements for your lost teeth roots. Patients at our Cleveland, TX, dental office often experience a much higher-quality and more lifelike replacement option thanks to the help of dental implants.
The stability of healthy, natural teeth
Dental implants describe small, root-like posts that are inserted into your jawbone, where your lost teeth once were. The posts are designed to mimic the form and function of healthy, natural teeth roots, though they can withstand a much higher level of bite pressure than an individual tooth root. This means your dental crown, bridge, or denture will rest as securely as your healthy, natural teeth because of the implanted anchor.
The stimulation of teeth roots
Supporting your replacement teeth on implant posts instead of traditional solutions like hidden clasps or adhesives offers more than greater stability. It also replaces the stimulation within your jawbone every time you bite and chew. That bite pressure is vital to your jawbone receiving an adequate amount of nutrition; otherwise, it could gradually lose mass and density following tooth loss.
The long-term integrity of your smile
Because of their ability to restore stimulation in your jawbone, dental implants offer the important advantage of preserving your jawbone’s long-term health and integrity. That means you’re less likely to experience further tooth loss, or to experience an increased risk of oral health and bite complications. Once implant posts are placed, they can last for life with proper, routine care and maintenance, both at home and at our office.
