What Benefits Can Implant-Supported Prosthetics Offer?
Posted January 29, 2018 by Wager-Evans Dental
Is an implant-supported prosthetic the right way to help rebuild your smile? Implants have offered amazing benefits to patients with a range of different issues caused by tooth loss. You can use an implant to support a single replacement tooth, but they can also be counted on to hold dentures in place. An initial evaluation with your dentist can determine if you are a good candidate. If you are, you can move forward with placement. Implants make it easier to practice standard dental functions, and they can feel more comfortable. There are also benefits for your oral health in the long term, particularly where it concerns the health of your jaw.
Dentures can help you feel better about how you look, but they can offer little functional support. This means patients who have suffered serious tooth loss often find themselves restricted in what they can eat. Implant support can make you more capable of biting and chewing, so you can return to a fuller diet. Of course, even one tooth may make it difficult to enjoy certain foods – implants have functional benefits for isolated tooth loss, too.
Implants are able to emulate the functions provided by the roots of your teeth. They serve to anchor your restoration to your jawbone, and can limit movement of neighboring natural teeth. One important form of support comes from an implant’s ability to stimulate your jawbone, and provide a healthy flow of nutrients. Without that stimulation, you can suffer a deterioration of your jawbone, which can lead to issues with your appearance, as well as with your general well-being.
