Having multiple teeth missing or damaged can cause major problems with your dental health. This can be further complicated when dentures or tooth-supported fixed bridges come into play. These dental appliances may not be fully equipped to comfortably solve the issues you are experiencing.
Multiple tooth implants have several advantages over dental appliances like bridges or dentures.
What are the advantages to implants?
Other forms of tooth replacement rely on surrounding teeth to maintain the replaced teeth. This can put unnecessary stress on these teeth, which can lead to other problems down the road.
Implants are placed directly into the jawbone so as not to disturb the surrounding teeth. Because implanted teeth are fused with the bone independent of the surrounding teeth, your new implants will have no effect on the neighboring teeth and can actually improve your overall dental health.
Furthermore, appliances like fixed bridges can become tricky if several teeth are missing in a row. Because implants are placed individually, the number of missing teeth in a row does not affect the success of the implant procedure.
Why Replace the Tooth Roots?
The jawbone surrounding where the tooth once was also poses another issue. Other forms of tooth replacement will neglect this bone, which can begin to deteriorate and cause further pain and serious health conditions.
Because implants are placed directly into the jawbone, this issue is sidestepped easily. The tooth implants stimulate the jawbone just as the natural tooth roots did. This feature improves the health of a jawbone that has suffered a missing tooth as well as providing secure foundations for the replacement teeth.
How will my implants look?
Implants look and function just like natural teeth do. Implants look more natural than other forms of tooth replacement and act in a way that promotes the natural function of your jaw. In fact, most people won’t even be able to tell your implanted teeth from your natural teeth.
Other Advantages to Dental Implants
Dentures can fall out when eating certain foods. These awkward mishaps make them less comfortable and more apparent as well as embarrassing. Your new implants negate these incidents and allow you to eat a wider variety of foods. You can feel more confident with your new smile.
