Understand all the long-term advantages you’ll enjoy when you get dental implants.
Having missing teeth affects more than just your appearance. Our East Brunswick, NJ, prosthodontist, Dr. Nainesh Desai, can help you determine if dental implants are right for you. After all, dental implants offer so many more benefits that other tooth replacement can’t.
A Restoration that Lasts
When it comes to losing a tooth, everyone is looking for the next best thing. While nothing will truly be able to take the place of a real tooth it’s amazing how close dental implants come. After all, implants are the only restoration that actually functions like tooth roots. What does this mean, exactly? Our East Brunswick prosthodontist will place the implant into the jawbone where it will naturally fuse together with bone and tissue. From there, it can support your dental restoration for years to come.
It Stays in Place
Whether you’re currently wearing dentures or you’ve considered them, a lot of people are turned off by the fact that this dental prosthetic can move around unexpectedly. If you want a more stable restoration for replacing your missing teeth then dental implants are it. Since they naturally fuse together with the jawbone, you’ll get a restoration that will stay put. Plus, dental implants can also be placed to support and stabilize a full set of dentures so they no longer move around in your mouth.
Protect Your Jawbone
Most people don’t think about the health of their jawbone when they are thinking about their missing teeth, but bone loss is inevitable if the tooth isn’t replaced. Losing the density and shape of your jawbone also means that your facial structure will change. This means that cheeks may start to sag and sink in, which causes premature aging. While this can sound scary, it doesn’t have to happen at all if you choose to treat your tooth loss as soon as possible.
Now that there is an open gap in your smile the rest of your teeth will begin to shift out of place to close the gap. Whether you’ve had braces in the past to correct misaligned teeth or not, dealing with this issue now can be just another major hassle. By placing a dental implant in the open spot, we can prevent these teeth from shifting out of place.
