Here are the benefits of dental implants,
Implants are long-lasting
Dental implants completely restore missing teeth. Titanium implants placed in your jawbone replace tooth roots and are connected to dental crowns, artificial teeth custom-made to fit the gap in your smile. Root strength is crucial to the function of your new tooth. Without strong, secure roots, your dental crown would wobble every time you took a bite. Your titanium implants bond to your jawbone and becomes as strong as your natural tooth roots. Thanks to the unique bonding ability of dental implants, your new teeth don't move.
Dental Implants can restore multiple missing teeth
Dental implants offer an effective restoration option. They can replace a single missing tooth, restore several lost teeth, or provide an alternative to full dentures. Implant-supported dentures can be more comfortable than traditional dentures and don't cause a dramatic loss of biting power.
Dental implants help you avoid tooth loss complications
Jawbone resorption, a problem that occurs when your jawbone shrinks and weakens, can be an issue after tooth loss. Resorption happens when your jawbone no longer receives stimulation from your roots. Eventually, you may experience facial sagging and might even notice that your teeth are loose. Dental implants help prevent resorption by stimulating your jawbone as effectively as your natural roots.
