Dental Implant Benefits
Nothing makes our Wisconsin Dental Solutions team happier than the testimonial of a satisfied patient — and one of the best kinds of feedback that we receive is that a patient wishes they had sought dental implant treatment earlier. That's a testament to how much better life can be with dental implants.
Here are a few reasons these tooth restorations are so well loved amongst our dental implant patients.
Dental implants restore the look of a normal, healthy smile. They relieve any kind of discomfort and/or embarrassment that you might experience while talking, eating or smiling. You can eliminate any distracting gaps in your mouth and gain a beautiful smile and a healthy set of teeth with dental implants.
The implant post is hidden below the gum line, so it is not noticeable, and. the restoration is affixed to the top of the post. This restoration may be a single-tooth crown, a bridge, partial denture or full set of dentures. All of these restorations are designed to mimic the appearance of natural teeth. They are crafted with high-quality materials and customized to blend in with the surrounding teeth, and complement your facial appearance.
The other aesthetic benefit to dental implants is that they prevent the face from appearing sunken-in or wrinkled (as can eventually happen to the face when teeth fall out). Implants help the face maintain its natural shape, structure and vitality.
Implants don't simply look great — they also function just as well as natural teeth. Implants will give you the comfort and stability you need to eat and speak normally, without interference. Since the posts are placed securely in the jawbone, the implants won't slip or slide around in the mouth. They are carefully adjusted for a comfortable fit. Unlike dentures, implants don't need to be removed every day for cleaning and soaking.
Missing teeth are detrimental to oral health for several reasons. First, the underlying jawbone can start to deteriorate if it is no longer being used to support a tooth. Second, the gaps can breed bacteria and increase the chances of periodontal disease. Also, teeth adjacent to a gap or space can suffer from premature wear, or start to shift around in the mouth. Implants are good for the jawbone, the gums, the adjacent teeth and overall oral health.
With the proper care implants will reliably last for many years. Your dental implants will be customized to your unique needs and goals for the best, most long-lasting results.
