Tooth loss can be disheartening and even a bit frightening. After all, it’s not as though you can -simply re-grow lost teeth. You can, however, replace your missing teeth, and today’s replacements are distinguished by the natural way that they look and feel. To learn more about these replacement teeth, read the information below about dental implants provided by your Grand Prairie dentist, Dr. Quinn Smith.
Benefits of Dental Implants
1. They’re versatile. Dental implants can aid in a variety of dental restorations ranging from a single-tooth replacement to a full denture. The function of the dental implants is to stabilize the restoration so that it can remain stable in the mouth. Based on the restoration being completed, the number of dental implants may change. For a single-tooth restoration, only a single implant is necessary for a full-mouth restoration, the number of dental implants will increase.
2. They feel natural. The roots of natural teeth anchor them into the jawbone. The same is true of dental implant restorations, giving these restorations a natural feel. Because they do not rely on surrounding teeth or suction for stability like other restorations, dental implants restorations tend to be very comfortable, and in some cases, patients forget that they are not actually their own natural teeth.
3. They require no special care. A dental implant restoration mimics a natural tooth. That mimicry continues even to homecare. Patients with dental implant restorations do not have to take any special precautions with them. Instead, they can treat and clean them like real teeth, brushing and flossing as they naturally would and allowing the restorations to integrate smoothly into their lives.
