A landmark treatment in restorative dentistry, dental implants have given millions of people the chance to get their smiles back. By opting to replace your missing tooth with implants, you will be able to smile with pride, eat everything you want, and speak more confidently.
Here at Today’s Smile Center your Berkley Dentist, Dr. Sam Shamoon, regularly uses implants to give our patients full and healthy smiles. Here’s how you can benefit from dental implants.
Jawbone Growth and Retention
Once you lose a tooth, whether it has been extracted or knocked out, it results in jawbone loss, and the longer you leave that space open, the more jawbone is lost. This occurs due to the lost tooth root, causing the body to stop sending nutrients and blood to that area, and resulting in the jawbone deteriorating. Fortunately, having an implant installed by your Berkley Dentist in place of your lost tooth as soon as possible could prevent this jawbone loss, help the bone growth, and maintain that growth.
Restored Confidence and Functionality
Lots of people with removable teeth restorations find eating and social situations challenging. But since an implant becomes part of your jawbone, it will allow you to consume anything you want without discomfort or pain and go to parties without having to worry about your replacement teeth falling out. Likewise, confidence has been proven to be linked to contentment and overall health, which is why enhancing your appearance through dental implants is one of the most sought-after benefits of this restoration option.
Reduced Risk of Developing Periodontal Disease
Commonly called gum disease, periodontal disease can result in plenty of serious health issues such as diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, and dementia. The space left by a lost tooth could trap bacteria and food that could cause gum disease, particularly if you don’t observe proper oral care habits. An implant will remove this problematic space so it can potentially help lower your risk of developing periodontal disease.
Reduced Dental Costs
Dental implants are developed to last you your whole life, provided that you care for them properly. This means less dental treatments, and in turn, reduced costs for you.
