What motivates patients to request dental implants to hold their restorations in place? If you are seeking a means of addressing tooth loss, you should understand that proper support for your prosthetic can have a positive impact on your overall experience. With an implant keeping your prosthetic in place, you can enjoy a higher degree of functional support, and protect against jawbone deterioration. A sequence of implants can be used to support larger restorations like full dentures, or partials. Of course, they can also serve as ideal support systems for individual prosthetic pieces, where they effectively serve as artificial tooth roots.
Dental Implants Can Support Your Restoration Without Modifying Healthy Teeth
One advantage dental implants offer is the ability to support a prosthetic tooth permanently without making modifications to neighboring teeth. With a dental bridge, your dentist needs to use a pair of crowns to lock down permanent support. Implants do not interfere with surrounding teeth, and their presence between the roots of teeth can actually improve their stability.
Dental Implants Can Provide More Stability For Partials And Dentures
Partials and dentures that are supported with dental implants can have more functional value, as they will be more securely put in place. This added support, along with better support for your jawbone, can help you more comfortably recover from serious tooth loss.
Your Dental Implants Will Help Sustain A Healthy Jawbone
One problem patients who have lost teeth face is the deterioration of their jawbone. This is a problem that results when the roots of teeth are no longer in place to stimulate the bone. When you have implants in position and stimulating your jaw, you can avoid a loss of mass that can have a negative impact on your appearance, and your oral health.
