Dental implants from Shwarts Family Dentistry in Richardson can be used to replace one or several teeth, or even anchor a set of dentures. They look and function like natural teeth. Does that sound too good to be true?
You’ve probably heard some dental implant hype.
- Bite and chew like normal!
- Implant-supported dentures don’t slip around!
- Dental implants are superior to dental bridges!
Those are bold claims. However, people with dental implants understand that they aren’t exaggerations.
A dental implant is the strongest natural-looking restoration for a missing tooth. It looks and functions like a natural tooth.
Let’s discuss two lesser-known reasons that dental implants are the best tooth restoration option. These issues don’t receive as much attention, but they should.
Why Are Dental Implants Revolutionary?
A dental implant is a titanium post that is inserted into the jaw to replace a missing tooth root. After a month or two, it fuses with the bone.
The post becomes a stable base for the visible restoration (abutment) above the gumline. An artificial tooth is mounted onto the abutment.
When a tooth is extracted, blood circulation in the bone is decreased because of the missing root. This can lead to bone recession. Dental implants can prevent this from happening.
