Benefits of Dental Implants
- Posted on: Aug 31 2013
Dental implants are one option for replacing missing teeth. Some of the benefits of choosing dental implants include :
- One of the longest lasting tooth replacement options.
- Can be used to anchor dentures or a dental bridge.
- Natural appearance.
- Stimulates the bone in which it is implanted, preventing shrinkage of the bone.
- Provides optimum stability when chewing and speaking.
Dental implants have a number of benefits and advantages, but the only way to know if they are right for your expectations and priorities is to consult our experienced dentist Dr. Lindsey Marshall. After examining your teeth and discussing your options, Dr. Marshall can help you choose the right way to replace your missing teeth.
Dental implants replace the missing root of your missing tooth. A titanium implant post acts as an artificial root, which supports a tooth crown, dentures or a dental bridge. By replacing the missing tooth root, the dental implant has an advantage over other tooth replacement options. The root prevents other teeth from shifting and provides maximum durability. It also stimulates the health and density of the bone in which it is implanted, preventing a collapsed or shrunken jaw appearance.
