There are many options for tooth replacements, and different alternatives fit different smile needs. One of the most beneficial options is a dental implant. Let’s look at the basics to see if implants are right for you.
If you are missing more than one tooth, it is likely that your jawbone will weaken over time. Implants can help restore your jaw’s strength and allow it to work properly. This is one of the top benefits of dental implants.
The implants strengthen the bone because they are installed directly into it. The bond between your implant and your jawbone will grow stronger through a process called osseointegration. While this is a massive benefit for your smile, it does require that all patients receiving implants have sufficient initial jaw strength to sustain the implant procedure. Don’t delay talking with your dentist if you are considering implants, to ensure the jaw bone is still strong enough.
Implants are designed to look and act just like your natural teeth. They can improve such basic functions such as biting, chewing, and speaking.
