Benefits of Dental Implants

by Dr. Laurie T. Hanschu

Do you know that your gum and jaw tissue changes when a tooth has been lost? When the roots and crown are removed or lost to decay or injury, the tissue begins to recede and shrink, and this can cause many problems to develop. It is why Stefanie Shore, DDS in Fair Oaks and Carmichael encourages our patients to learn about the benefits of dental implants.

As a restorative dentist in Carmichael, Dr. Shore is skilled in implant dentistry and can help you decide if this is the right choice for your needs. It helps to understand that implants are not the same as artificial teeth, such as dentures or veneers. Implants are as they sound – devices implanted into the jaw and gum to replace the entire tooth. The post replaces the roots and the dental crown is a fully functional replacement for the original crown of the natural tooth.

An implant dentist will be able offer you as many implants as you might need, whether it is to create a new set teeth that are fixed in place. to replace individual to a few teeth or to provide anchorage for removable dentures for a secure snap in fit.  The benefits of dental implants apply no matter how many you have. The benefits include:

They restore your mouth

When you lose a tooth, it means you have lost some function in the mouth. Lose more than one tooth and you can see the loss of a large portion of your mouth’s functionality. Dental implants restore the mouth to the greatest extent, allowing you to use your teeth like you always have.

They retain your bite

One of the biggest problems from the loss of a tooth is the impact this has on your natural bite. The alignment of your upper and lower teeth shift when a tooth is lost, with some teeth moving into the space where that tooth once stood. Replacing those lost teeth quickly prevents this problem. If you lose several teeth, your bite can collapse which causes excessive forces on the remaining teeth, less efficient chewing and uneven wear of teeth.

They help you look younger and more natural

The teeth support the soft tissue of the face, and if you are missing many teeth, your face can take on a collapsed appearance. By restoring the teeth, you can regain this underlying support, ensuring you look like you should for years to come.

They are a reliable solution

One of the most easily overlooked benefits of dental implants is their 95-98% success rate, meaning they are an ideal answer to many different issues, and they are nearly fail-proof.
