Many people are unaware of the importance of replacing missing teeth. In order to keep bone tissue from deteriorating, the living structure must be stimulated as if there were still a tooth in place. This is why dental implants provide the best long-terms benefits for a missing tooth or teeth.
When patients hear the word implant, they often don’t know what to think. They are afraid it will be obvious and stick out from their other teeth. I also get questions about the stability of implants while chewing tough foods. Both of these common concerns are addressed with modern implant procedures. The implant is attached the root of the tooth, giving your smile a solid foundation. You will be able to chew almost anything and you won’t see or feel any difference between the implant and your natural teeth.
Each case is different, but it’s important to understand the long-term effects of missing teeth. Have you ever noticed someone with a sunken look to their face? Over time, the jawbone breaks down when the root is not stimulated. Implants provide benefits of nature to keep the body producing tissue.
