Restorations Made for Dental Implants
Besides the visible parts that make up your smile, your teeth also consist of supportive roots that hold them steady while you bite and chew. These roots also stimulate your jawbone, which promotes a healthy flow of nutrients to support both the bone and your teeth. When you lose one or more teeth, the loss of their roots can have a negative impact on your jawbone health by reducing this stimulation. Fortunately, this can often be remedied with the help of one or more dental implant posts, which replace lost teeth roots to support a prosthetic crown, bridge, or denture.
Why Dental Implants Are Preferable
When you replace missing teeth with a conventional prosthesis, you restore your bite’s ability to function properly by reestablishing a full, balanced set of teeth. However, traditional bridges and dentures can’t address the loss of your teeth roots, and therefore, they can’t help maintain a healthy, strong jawbone. With dental implants, however, your dental prosthesis can simultaneously restore your bite’s function and the vital functions of your lost teeth roots, offering more comprehensive results for your long-term oral health. Implant posts also eliminate the need for supportive systems like adhesives and clasps, improving the comfort and stability of your dental prosthesis.
