· Provide structural stability to adjacent teeth, preventing additional tooth loss
· Prevent bone loss in the area of absent teeth
· Prevent difficulty speaking associated with missing teeth
· Require no adhesives
· Appear natural
Every one of the benefits listed here provides a distinct
advantage over traditional dentures. Implants consist of a titanium stud that is permanently joined to the jaw bone. A prosthetic crown is then mounted on the stud, creating a strong, artificial root-tooth complex that mimics the way a natural tooth fits in the jaw.
Lost teeth cause the bone in the local area to atrophy and finally be reabsorbed into the body, a process that implants can prevent.
This means the chain of undesirable effects that occur as a result of losing a tooth may be slowed or stopped entirely.
Finally, while traditional dentures rarely appear natural, dental implants can be shaped to blend with your remaining teeth for a seamless, natural look.
