Dental Implants are the most advanced treatment to replace missing teeth. Here at Dr. Austin Roberts Family and Implant Dentistry, we are highly trained in this procedure at our Ooltewah dental practice. Dental implants are complete artificial teeth, along with their own post acting at the root replacement for the missing tooth. The implant is inserted into the mouth and is permanently fixed to the jaw.
General Benefits of Dental Implants
There are a lot of great benefits to dental implants. Below are some of the key benefits:
- Dental Implants are very sturdy and can last decades, making them a great investment. This allows dental implants to last several years longer than dentures or bridges.
- Dental Implants have a more natural feeling. Dental implants bring back almost all of the natural function of real teeth, allowing for chewing, smiling, and talking without any slippage or movement.
- Dental Implants stabilize the jawbone and help maintain the natural shape of your face.
Health Benefit of Dental Implants
Maybe one of the best benefits and a key motivation to invest in dental implants is the health potential oral health benefits effect that can result. One of these health benefits is the maintaining your overall facial structure with a dental implant. When you lose a tooth, your jawbone starts to break down, and your remaining teeth start to shift. This shift of your remaining teeth can negatively affect your overall facial structure.
