Implanted Dental Restorations
When it comes to replacing lost teeth, dental implant-supported restorations come the closest to mimicking the structures of your healthy, natural teeth. That’s because they’re the only option that comes with implanted posts that mimic the roots of your lost teeth, giving your replacement teeth more lifelike support, stability, and biocompatibility.
When You Lose Teeth Roots
There are many important benefits that come with replacing your lost teeth roots, some of which are immediate and some of which become more important as the years pass by. For example, in addition to giving your replacement tooth or teeth enhanced stability and comfort, implant posts also restore the stimulation that your jawbone loses when one or more teeth are uprooted from their sockets. When a root is no longer present, your jawbone may lose mass and density, increasing your risks of experiencing further tooth loss.
How Dental Implants Help
Because they’re the only option for replacing lost teeth roots, dental implant-supported restorations offer the best chance at preventing the erosion of your jawbone following tooth loss. When one or more dental implants are inserted into your jawbone, they’re stimulated every time you bite down on the restoration it supports. This biocompatibility gives your implant restoration several vital advantages, including:
- Reducing your risks of further tooth loss
- Allowing you to eat a wider variety of foods
- Eliminating the risk of dentures or bridges slipping
- Improving comfort and confidence compared to traditional restorations
- And much more
