As dental implant technology becomes more and more well-known, people are reaping the benefits of this innovative treatment. Today our Lincoln Park restorative dentists are explaining some of the benefits of implant treatment for people dealing with various dental health issues. Let’s get started!
Dental implant technology allows our dental team to mimic natural dental structures when we replace a missing tooth. Dental implants, as opposed to other dental prosthetics, actually include replacement dental roots, which are small titanium screws that extend into the patient’s jawbone.
Dental implant roots provide a number of benefits to the dental implant patient:
· Your replacement tooth will stay in place 24/7 and feel exceptionally natural. You don’t need to worry that your prosthetic will shift around in your mouth, or make it difficult of you to speak and eat naturally.
· The titanium dental implant root will, over time, bolster your natural jawbone tissue and minimize your risk of suffering from bone tissue deterioration. Titanium is able to osseointegrate with bone tissue, so as these materials connect, they help to strengthen each other.
· Because your dental implant stays in place permanently, you’ll find that caring for your implants is quite straightforward and clear cut. For the most part, you will need to brush and floss your smile—including your dental implant—as recommended by your dentist in order to keep your implant clean and healthy. It is also important to keep up with your schedule of professional dental cleanings.
· Every dental implant is customized aesthetically, so that the dental prosthetic looks like the patient’s natural teeth.
