Dental implants offered by your dentist in Lawrenceville, GA, Dr. Tu Nguyen, provide many benefits for your smile. If you plan to replace your missing teeth soon, you'll want to consider these five reasons that make dental implants an excellent restoration choice.
Most people feel a little self-conscious after tooth loss. Whether you've lost one tooth or all of them, dental implants enhance your appearance and boost your self-confidence. Your new tooth will consist of a dental crown attached to a dental implant. Implants are tiny titanium posts added to your jawbone during minor oral surgery. After the posts bond to your jawbone, they'll serve as artificial roots for your crowns.
Excellent biting power
It takes considerable force to bite into a raw carrot or chew a piece of crusty bread. When biting power declines, it's difficult to eat some raw, hard or tough foods. Fortunately, you won't have to sacrifice biting power when you opt for dental implants. In fact, you'll be able to eat anything on the menu when you replace your missing teeth with dental implants.
A comfortable option
Comfort is important when you replace missing teeth. After all, eating can become an unpleasant experience if your new teeth irritate your gums or slip when you take a bite of food. Since dental implants are firmly rooted in your jawbone, your teeth won't slip, slide or rub against your gums.
The most versatile restoration choice
Dental implants aren't just for people who've lost one tooth. They offer the ideal restoration method no matter how many teeth you've lost. Implant-supported bridges and dentures are a good choice if you've lost all of your teeth or several in a row.
Oral health benefits
Replacing your missing teeth keeps your other teeth from shifting. Drifting can change your bite and cause your teeth to overlap, which can make it difficult to fully remove plaque from your teeth. Dental implants prevent drifting from occurring, protecting your oral health.
Implants also help reduce the risk of jaw resorption, a condition that occurs when the bone shrinks due to decreased stimulation from tooth roots. Adding dental implants to the bone offers a simple way to keep your jawbone strong.
