Discover Dental Implant Benefits for Yourself
Dental implants not only prevent bone loss by stimulating the jawbone, they also restore function in cases of damaged or missing teeth and provide lasting aesthetic benefits when secured with a restoration. Dr. Teddi Olszewski will discuss dental implant benefits with you during a consultation at her Northampton, MA, office, and develop a treatment plan to address your unique needs.
Choosing dental implants means opting for the most secure and durable restoration available. Do not hesitate to talk with your dentist about this lasting solution for damaged and missing teeth.
Bone Loss Prevention
Natural tooth roots extend to the jawbone and help fortify the jaw with stimulation from chewing. When tooth roots are missing, the bone can recede, damaging the jaw and adversely affecting the structure and appearance of the face. Dental implants are widely used by dentists to stimulate the bone in place of tooth roots. The implant post is surgically placed in the jawbone, providing stimulation through the natural pressure of chewing.
For patients with several missing teeth, multiple dental implants are placed and can be used as a base for dental bridges, partial dentures, and full dentures. Dentists strongly recommend that patients support their dentures with implants in order to maintain proper jawbone stimulation.
Appealing Aesthetics and Restored Function
Implant-supported restorations can renew the aesthetics of your smile by closing gaps and replacing damaged teeth. There is a wide array of strong, beautiful restorative material available from which you may choose. Restorations will be matched to the shade, size, and shape of your teeth, making them virtually indistinguishable. Patients often experience renewed self-confidence when dental implant restorations replace missing teeth and provide a stunning, rejuvenated smile.
Many patients feel that receiving dental implants is life-changing, and we want you to experience and enjoy these benefits as well.
Dental implants also restore dental function to patients with missing teeth, allowing them to once again speak and eat normally. Many patients enjoy a renewed ability to chew without pain or an uneven bite. Replacing damaged teeth with implant-supported restorations can also make teeth much easier to brush and floss.
An Investment to Last a Lifetime
With proper care, dental implants can last for the rest of your life. Dental implant maintenance is no different from maintaining your own teeth, and simply requires daily brushing and flossing, and regular dental cleanings. Professional dental cleanings can prevent periodontal concerns, as dental implants do not eliminate the possibility of gum disease.
Dental implants represent a single, elegant solution to a variety of dental issues. Implants can prevent future oral health concerns associated with broken or missing teeth. Patients experience dramatic improvements in their oral health when they choose dental implants, and enjoy restored smiles without the hassle of traditional denture maintenance.
