At Modern American Dentistry, dental implants are a patient favorite because they solve a variety of dental issues.
Apart from looking natural and restoring confidence—by closing gaps brought by missing teeth—dental implants can also improve oral health!
Dental implants are small titanium posts surgically implanted in your jaw. After implantation, these posts fuse with your jawbone. This creates a stable foundation for above-the-gum line abutments and brand new teeth!
You can opt for a single implant or more than one.
A few strategically placed implant posts, in fact, are stable enough to host an entire bridge of new teeth or an affixed denture.
Let’s look at a few issues solved with dental implants, or a few benefits.
A Beautiful Smile
This is an obvious benefit, but often patients don’t realize how dramatic the results will be following their implants. They don’t always expect the restored confidence brought by a brand new smile.
No More Shifting Teeth
When teeth are missing, surrounding teeth may shift toward the empty space. Eventually, this can lead to other dental issues like tooth alignment problems and irregular chewing patterns.
Give Your Real Teeth a Break
When teeth are missing, remaining teeth are counted on to do all the work. Chewing on one side of your mouth, for example, can lead to tooth wear and possibly more tooth loss in the future.
A Healthier Diet
After tooth restoration, you are able to indulge in a more well-rounded diet. It’s easy, following dental implants, to munch on healthy carrots, celery, and other healthy foods you may have left behind.
