Things You Should Know About Dental Implants


Posted on 2/22/2021 by Platte Valley Dental Care
Things You Should Know About Dental ImplantsTooth loss doesn't seem as bad as it used to thanks to dental implants. Missing teeth have adverse effects not only on your dental but overall health. While there are other solutions like dental bridges and dentures, nothing comes close to replacing your natural tooth as a dental implant. One of the best things about dental implants is it acts as a root below your tooth and this prevents jaw degeneration.

How Can Dental Implants Improve Your Oral Health?


An implant is like a screw that is inserted inside your jaw through your gums. After the implant is in place, a crown is screwed over it. The finished product resembles a natural tooth and positively impacts your overall health.

Your body does not recognize the difference between a dental implant and your natural tooth. This enables your body to provide the stimulation necessary for bone reabsorption and this prevents jaw degeneration from occurring. The procedure prevents the neighboring tooth from getting loose and you don't suffer from further tooth loss.

An implant not only looks like a natural tooth, but it acts like one too. It enables you to chew food confidently with even pressure distribution. It is the best possible replacement for a lost tooth and lasts long.

Support Facial Structure


Many people are afraid of their facial structure changing because of tooth loss. This is something you don't have to stress about when you have dental implants in place. Since the implants act as a natural tooth, it prevents the face from sinking in. People without dental implants tend to look almost 10 years older than people with dental implants.

Dental implants also prevent the occurrence of periodontal diseases and maintain overall dental health. Reconstruct your smile with the best dental implants. Call us today to book an appointment with our specialists.
