Dental implants are an effective solution for restoring teeth that have been lost to age or damage, such as decay or erosion.
At North Alabama Smiles in Arab, Alabama, we believe advancements in dentistry such as dental implants can bring significant benefits to our patients and recommend them for their durability and strength.
What Are Implants?
Dental implants are an efficient solution for tooth restoration and provide unmatched stability. They are as durable and long-lasting as natural teeth thanks to the process of osseointegration that occurs between the implants and the patient’s jawbone.
Tooth replacement with dental implants can restore a more natural-looking smile and make it easier to perform oral functions like eating or speaking.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants have multiple benefits, including:
- They Function Like Natural Teeth
- They Prevent Bone Loss
An implant provides the required stimulation for natural bone growth.
- They Keep Your Gums Disease-Free
- They Support Your Facial Structure
- They Keep Neighboring Teeth in Position
The space created by a missing tooth can cause neighboring teeth to drift towards the gap. As a result, your teeth can shift out of position and this can affect your bite, your ability to chew, and your appearance. An improper bite can also lead to issues with your temporomandibular joint and may result in headaches and pain. Shifting teeth can also make tooth replacement difficult in the future.
- Last a Lifetime
If dental implants are cared for, they can last a lifetime. The implant is fabricated from titanium, it is biocompatible, non-toxic, and will not be rejected by the body.
