The Wide-Reaching Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are widely regarded as the optimal restorative treatment option for patients with missing teeth. At our family-friendly office in Oviedo, FL, Dr. David J. Ross and Dr. Karen M. Schmitt can explain the benefits of dental implants to help patients make an informed decision about their tooth replacement options.

Dental Implants Can Restore Jawbone Health

Missing teeth can not only impact your confidence, but they can also have negative effects on your oral health. When your jawbone is no longer receiving vital stimulation from your teeth, it can start to degenerate and lose density. If left untreated, jawbone deterioration can lead to facial collapse and sagging skin around your face that makes you appear older than you actually are. After a successful dental implant surgery, the implant posts will fuse with the surrounding jawbone and act as artificial roots through a process called osseointegration. Once the posts have fused with your jaw, they can provide the jawbone with the necessary stimulation to keep it healthy for years to come.

Dental implants effectively replace the tooth root, providing superior support for a dental restoration. 

Advantages in Function and Comfort

Although the dental implants timeline can take several months to complete, patients who receive implant-supported restorations can enjoy significant improvement in comfort and the function of their smile.

Improved Your Chewing and Speech

Missing teeth can cause you to chew irregularly and affect your speech. Dental implants can help restore the strength of your natural bite and provide a strong base for your dental crownbridge, or dentures to help you speak clearly and confidently again. If you stopped eating solid foods due to missing teeth, dental implants can help you regain a more nutritious diet and improve your overall health.

With proper care and regular examinations by your dentist, dental implants can last a lifetime.

Heightened Sense of Security

Patients who choose dentures as their restorative prosthetics are often worried about dentures slipping, falling out, or clicking while eating and speaking. Traditional dentures also require a special adhesive to keep them in place throughout the day. Patients who choose implant-supported dentures instead of removable dentures can enjoy added stability and security when eating and speaking without the use of additional adhesives.

Extreme Durability

With proper care and regular examinations by your dentist, dental implants can last a lifetime. The crowns, bridges, and dentures that are affixed to dental implants are also highly durable and impervious to decay, which can save you money on treatments like cavities and root canal therapy over time.

Confidence in Your Smile and Self

Losing teeth in adulthood can be a stressful and traumatic experience, and we are here to help you receive caring, compassionate, and effective treatment. Dental implants can help your smile look and feel complete again. Our restorations are custom-made to seamlessly match your surrounding teeth and facial features, giving your smile superior aesthetics as well as lifelike strength and function.
