Getting Dental Implants Could Help You Restore Your Oral Health


Posted on 12/21/2020 by David Mugford
Getting Dental Implants Could Help You Restore Your Oral HealthThanks to implants, people who previously had to wear dentures or rely on less sturdy restorations can find a permanent way to enhance their oral health. The following information shows why getting implants can make a significant improvement in your overall dental well-being.

Why Implants Make a Difference


One of the great things about implants is that they assist in filling in the gaps in the mouth that shrink the gum tissue and cause deterioration of the jaw bone. Implants serve as artificial roots that can hold various restorations. Filling in a space with an implant can improve the health of the gums, even out the smile, and lessen the risk of periodontal disease. However, that also means you need to take care of your teeth and gums to prevent gum disease. Gum disease can negatively affect implants, causing them to fail, or come out.

Keep Teeth from Shifting


By adding an implant or implants in the space or spaces of a lost tooth or teeth, you can also prevent any problems with shifting. Shifting can misalign the bite, which can lead to TMJ problems or extra wear-and-tear on the teeth. Therefore, balancing out the smile is one of the major benefits of having implants. When a dental implant is added to a space, it fills the void for better dental functioning. Also, if you wear traditional dentures, you can avoid slippage by getting implants and fixed dentures. With fixed dentures, you can eat more of the foods you like without concern.

As you can see, implants can work wonders when it comes to your oral health. Again, you need to ensure they will last by practicing good oral hygiene. Give us a call to set an appointment if you would like to know more about dental implants. We can tell you about the process as well as what restorations we can include to improve and balance out your smile.
