There are fantastic benefits from the method of tooth replacement known as dental implants. Losing your teeth is naturally upsetting. In the past, options of restoration were limited to fake looking false teeth. President George Washington, for example, was able to afford the best possible dentures available in his day. Yet they were still made from one-dimensional, flat looking ivory, lead, human, and animal teeth. Dental implants offer a much more tooth-like solution which will not only look great, but also preserve your jawbone density.
All about Dental Implants
Dental implants are fabricated out of biocompatible titanium rods. What does biocompatible mean? This term refers to the fact that your body will accept the titanium just as if it were a part of your anatomy. The implants are surgically implanted into your jawbone. Once porcelain dental crowns are attached to the implant rods, you’ll experience the exact same benefits that natural teeth provide from both a form and function perspective. No matter how many teeth you have lost, partial or full dental implants are available. Even if you have only lost one tooth, single dental implants are an option. One of the great things about dental implants is that you can brush with normal toothpaste, floss, and eat all of your favorite foods with no slipping or adjustment needs.
More on Jawbone Benefits from Dental Implants
Missing teeth (even when replaced with traditional dentures) can set the stage for a decrease in jawbone density. Your body views the roots of your teeth as a signal for sending minerals and nutrients for bone density maintenance. If you leave a space with no tooth, not only can other teeth drift out of place, but you can end up with facial collapse. This manifests as sunken cheeks and an aged appearance.
