Dental implants have been skyrocketing in popularity over the past several years, and thanks to modern methods and tools, more people than ever can now benefit from this wonderful tooth replacement method. Why is that such great news? Because nothing else offers the stability, security, and downright attractiveness of Houston dental implants. Keep reading to learn why most people choose this replacement option when looking to complete their smiles.
The “Healthy” Option
One of the main reasons your dentist will encourage you to get dental implants if you are an eligible candidate (more on eligibility below) is because they promote oral and overall health. How? By stabilizing your jawbone and preventing the loss of even more teeth. When you are missing a tooth, you have lost its root structure, too — and that means there is nothing to bring blood flow and important nutrients to this part of the jaw bone. Without what it needs to thrive, the bone tissue will gradually weaken, meaning your smile’s days are numbered.
Dental implants are the only health-promoting solution. Because they are are made of titanium, a material which encourages the growth of bone tissue, implant posts can actually fuse together with your jaw bone, mimicking your natural tooth structure and preventing the loss of important bone tissue.
A More Beautiful Smile
Another reason people choose dental implants is for their natural-looking results. Because the replacement crown, bridge, or denture is supported by a prosthetic root — just like your natural teeth — they look and feel sturdy and beautiful. Once your dental implants have been restored with your new tooth replacement, no one will know the difference. Plus, stabilizing the jaw bone with implants helps to keep your facial volume intact.
Eat and Speak Confidently
Non implant-supported tooth replacement options may slip or slide around due to a lack of sufficient support. Painful oral sores often develop as a result of this poor fit, and nutrition can suffer if eating crunchy, fresh foods becomes difficult. Because they are affixed to a sturdy post placed within your jaw, implant-retained tooth replacement options allow you to eat and speak without worry your bridge or denture will move around or fall out.
