Did you lose a tooth or even several teeth recently? If so, you may have been struggling ever since. Adult tooth loss can create a sense of insecurity, as well as frustration, particularly while eating. Eventually, tooth loss can also lead to alignment problems for remaining teeth, and even changes to the jaw’s structure. Fortunately, dental implants provide a way of addressing all these issues, and more, by creating stability for replacement teeth. If you want to get back to enjoying your life again, without worrying anymore about your missing teeth, a dental implant could provide an ideal smile solution.
Why Dentures Aren’t Always the Best Option
Dentures remain one of the most popular forms of prostheses, likely because they are both an affordable and fast way to complete the smile after tooth loss. That said, even denture adhesives only help to temporarily hold dentures in place. For many patients, this is not enough security to enjoy meals confidently, particularly chewy or hard foods, like apples or steaks.
Dental bridges can create more stability, but even they are not a permanent solution.
Could an Implant Provide You with More Stability?
Dental implants, however, are designed to create an incredibly stable form of smile completion. They do this by surgically inserting a titanium post into the jaw, where soft tissue can grow right around it, creating a permanent and stable base on which a replacement tooth can be affixed.
This mimic tooth root also supplies nutrients to the jaw, helping it to retain its structure over time.
