When Should You Consider Dental Implants?


There are many instances in which patients experience tooth loss. When a tooth is lost and it is not replaced, it can create a negative domino effect of changes in the mouth. Losing a tooth can lead the rest of your teeth to shift from their current spot and potentially cause a dental occlusion. This can have an impact on your overall dental health and your overall health.

There are a few interventions that can be used to impede this from happening. One of the most effective and common interventions are dental implants. Dental implants are essentially an artificial tooth root that gets placed in the jawbone where the previous tooth was. This creates a permanent and strong foundation that replaces the natural tooth. A dental implant is not simply an aesthetical replacement of such said tooth but also a replacement of the root.

Dental implants require a lengthier time investment than other interventions. However, it is a wonderful option when considering the long term health of your mouth. Below are some of the reasons that might prompt you to consider dental implants over other options.

Keep Teeth From Shifting

A lost tooth can create more havoc in the mouth than just the aesthetic visuals of it. It can cause all teeth to shift from their original spot. Dental implants impede this from happening. This means that your smile can continue thriving in its original form.

Protect & Preserve A Healthy Jawbone

When a tooth is lost, the jawbone tends to suffer the consequences by deteriorating. This is because the root also dissipates and makes the jawbone lose its strength. Since dental implants are embedded into the jawline, they can resolve this problem. Dental implants have the ability to support a healthy bite. They also support a healthy jawbone by preventing bone deterioration.

Restore Your Confidence

It is no secret that having a gap in your smile due to tooth loss can bring down your confidence. We have seen it time and time again with our patients. Dental implants are an amazing solution to replace missing pieces and bring back your confidence in your smile. The best part is that you can expect the implant to last a lifetime! This means that you will have your confidence back permanently.

Convenient & Comfortable

Yes, there are other solutions to address the issue of tooth loss. We always recommend that you explore all of your options and our team is happy to help you in your research journey. Having said that, dental implants are possibly the most convenient and comfortable option for tooth replacement out there. This is because they are directly inserted into the jaw, which means that the jaw bone grows around it. The jawbone holds the implant firmly in its place. This makes it so that the implant fits permanently with the existing teeth.

Losing a tooth is never an easy hurdle to overcome. Initially, it can be quite shocking and challenging to deal with the situation at hand. However, it does not have to remain this way. There are options to move forward and bring your smile back to its full capacity. We have seen many of our patients smile bigger than before after getting their dental implants.
