How Dental Implants Work to Rebuild Smiles
Any oral health concern is a problem if it isn’t addressed promptly, but of the many different conditions that could potentially affect your smile, tooth loss can be one of the most significant ones. If a tooth is damaged, then the right restoration can repair it and help you preserve the remaining healthy tooth structure. Yet, if a tooth is lost, then restoring your smile will require replacing as much of the tooth’s structure as possible, including the root that supported it. For many people who lose one or more teeth, dental implants can work to completely rebuild their smiles by reestablishing the many different functions that healthy teeth roots are responsible for.
Mimicking healthy, natural tooth structures
Tooth loss impacts nearly every aspect of your oral health, from your smile’s appearance to the overall balance of your bite, and much more. The only effective way to address these impacts is to replace the tooth with a restoration that mimics its healthy structure as closely as possible. This often includes replacing the root that supported the lost tooth’s crown, which is only possible with a dental implant post. By closely replicating a healthy, natural tooth root, a dental implant post can give your tooth replacement a more lifelike level of support.
Restoring a bite’s full functionality
Mimicking your tooth’s natural tooth structure, including its root, is the best way to reestablish your bite’s ability to function properly. This function relies heavily on your dental ridges being filled with healthy, natural teeth, or lifelike replacements that closely mimic them. With the support of dental implants, your restoration is able to absorb more of your bite’s pressure, making for a more stable restoration when you bite, chew, speak, and smile. Replacing your lost tooth’s root is also vital to preserving the health and integrity of your jawbone structure, which serves as the foundation of your smile.
Benefiting most tooth loss patients
For dental implants to work successfully, they have to become part of your jawbone’s structure after they’ve been placed. This is possible due to the high biocompatibility of dental implant posts, which are often crafted from titanium and designed for your jawbone structure to integrate with their surfaces as it heals. Because every dental implant post is placed individually, they can be utilized to rebuild smiles that experience nearly any level of tooth loss, from replacing a single lost tooth to rebuilding an entire dental ridge with a complete, implant-supported denture.
