Benefits of Dental Implant Supported Restorations and Prosthetics
Fixed bridges and removable dentures and partials only replace the missing teeth, but do not impact overall oral health. Dental implant-retained restorations, however, provide multiple benefits, such as:
Restored Jaw Bone Health
Restorations such as bridges and dentures replace the crowns of teeth, allowing you to bite and talk comfortably. However, when a tooth is lost, it impacts the jaw bone as well. Without a tooth root to adhere to, jaw bone density can recede, resulting in a premature aged look. Dental implant posts replace the tooth root and fuse with the bone, restoring its integrity and durability, making for a long-lasting treatment.
For patients who are missing one or both arches of teeth, dentures are the recommended option to restore the function of their smiles. However, dentures must be re-fitted over time to accommodate the patient’s changing jaw. Dentures that are affixed by dental implants provide renewed stability. Patients can comfortable smile, chew, and speak without worrying their prosthetics will move out of place.
Retained Smile Alignment and Natural Teeth
Missing teeth impact the aesthetics of the smile, as surrounding teeth will move out of alignment into the vacant spot. Treatments such as fixed bridges fill these spaces but utilize neighboring teeth that have been altered and fitted with a dental crown as support to do so. These surrounding teeth may have been relatively healthy and did not need a crown. Dental implants can replace individual teeth, especially if patients have missing teeth sporadically in the smile, without using neighboring teeth.
