Benefits of Dental Implants
The dental implants can be placed and restored by a restorative dentist if not a periodontist, oral surgeon or a general dentist who has advanced knowledge in dental surgery. The single tooth replacement involves a custom crown that has been manufactured in the dental laboratory to look like a natural tooth being screwed permanently into the abutment. The fixed multiple tooth replacement works in the same way as single tooth replacement, but this one takes care of replacing multiple teeth. The removable implant supported tooth replacement type of dental implants procedure is for those who have lost all their lower or upper teeth. The dental implants have the following benefits.
Your bones and gums are lost when you lose your teeth, but dental implants preserve the bones and gums. The stimulation of the bone retains its form and density. Dental implants fused to the bone and stabilize it so that there is no additional loss of bone. Dental implants stop reabsorption so that the bone is preserved because reabsorption causes bone loss when it is no longer supporting the teeth.
Dental implants will prevent the teeth from shifting. Periodontal diseases that are caused by bacteria causes the gums and soft tissues in the mouth to relax thus making the teeth to shift out of place. If you lose teeth the space that is left allows the remaining teeth to shift, but dental implants will fill the space to prevent other teeth from moving. The braces are used to realign the overlapping teeth because of a small mouth that cannot contain all the teeth. Some people grind their teeth if they are stressed or asleep but wearing night guards will help them to stop because this habit causes the teeth to shift.
Dental implants last longer than twenty-five years because they will not decay. After having dental implants you can smile with the high level of confidence because they look like their natural teeth. When someone loses their teeth their facial structures are also affected, but dental implants rectify this condition to restore the facial structure of a person. Dental implants improve the quality of your life by increasing the ability to chew and speak naturally. The dental implants need to be well taken care of for them to last longer. Your dental implants will last depending on the bone grafts that you undergo. You should know the signs that your body is rejecting the dental implants.
