Three Reasons for Replacing Missing Teeth with Dental Implants

Replacing missing teeth is important, but firstly, what exactly is a dental implant in Ajax, and how does it work? A dental implant is a small yet very durable screw or post, made from titanium alloy or from a special ceramic material called zirconia. The implant is placed surgically into the jaw where it bonds or ‘osseointegrates’ with the bone around it. Once fused with the bone, the implant is restored with the dental prosthesis which could be a crown, bridge or denture. Now, let’s look at three reasons for replacing missing teeth.

1. Oral Health

From our point of view, your oral health is the most critical reason for restoring lost teeth in Whitby. It may seem surprising, but even losing a single tooth negatively affects your remaining teeth. The gap creates an imbalance in the mouth, allowing adjacent teeth to drift towards the space. As these teeth tilt and shift out of place, they can become less stable, and your bite is affected. Also, your remaining teeth must work harder to bite and chew food, and additional stress can cause them to wear more quickly.

Perhaps the most important reason for restoring missing teeth with dental implants in Pickering is because the implant post replicates a real tooth root, protecting your jawbone against bone loss. Real tooth roots provide stimulation that ensures your jawbone stays healthy and strong. When they are removed, stimulation is lost, and your jawbone gradually resorbs. Dental implants prevent this bone loss by stimulating the surrounding bone, just like a real tooth root and are the only tooth loss solution that protects your oral health this way.

2. Appearance

We know losing teeth is upsetting, and even a single missing tooth can affect self-confidence and self-esteem. Dental implants in Brooklin replace teeth in a way that looks incredibly natural, and especially when restoring just single teeth, as your new implant crown will merge from your gums, just like a real tooth. It is very difficult to tell the difference between implant teeth and natural teeth, and we take tremendous care when designing and fabricating them here at Durham Dental Solutions.

3. Comfort

Unwanted gaps between teeth can easily trap food, which is uncomfortable at best. Teeth that are infected decayed or failing can feel painful when you bite or chew. Loose dentures can be miserable when they rub on your gums. When all your teeth are in the proper places and are strong and stable, it feels good! You can enjoy favourite foods and meals become a pleasure, not a pain. When you can eat comfortably, it is far easier to ensure you eat well, choosing foods that are nourishing and which provide all the vitamins and minerals you need to protect overall health.
