Why Dentists Recommend Dental Implants to Replace Missing Teeth

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dentists offer a variety of solutions, each with its unique advantages and considerations. Among these options, dental implants stand out as the gold standard for tooth replacement. Dentists frequently recommend dental implants over other alternatives, and for good reason. Let’s explore the many compelling reasons why dentists prefer dental implants as the ideal solution for replacing missing teeth over other options.

Stability and Security of Dental Implants

When you need a tooth replacement option that is permanent and will last a lifetime, dental implants are the way to go. Dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone, where they fuse with the surrounding bone through a process called osseointegration. This integration provides a rock-solid foundation for the replacement tooth or teeth. Unlike removable dentures that may slip or move during eating or speaking, dental implants offer unparalleled stability and security, allowing individuals to enjoy their favorite foods and communicate with confidence.

Bone Preservation With Dental Implants

When a tooth is lost, the underlying jawbone can gradually deteriorate due to lack of stimulation in a process called resorption. Dental implants serve as artificial tooth roots, stimulating the jawbone and preventing bone resorption. This essential bone preservation ensures the facial structure remains intact and reduces the risk of additional dental problems associated with bone loss. Tooth-supported dental bridges, on the other hand, will have bone loss occur underneath them which can result in an unaesthetic result in long run as a gap develops between the bridge and the gums.

With full dentures the bone loss is even worse, since it happens across the entire mouth. This bone loss can lead to a change in the appearance of the mouth as well as require adjustments to the dentures as the gums change shape and the dentures no longer fit.

Maintenance of Adjacent Teeth

Unlike dental bridges, which require the preparation and reduction of adjacent healthy teeth to support the bridge, dental implants stand independently. They do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. This preserves the integrity of surrounding healthy teeth and reduces the risk of damage or decay.

Enhanced Chewing Efficiency

Dental implants enable individuals to enjoy a diverse and nutritious diet without restrictions. The stability and strength of dental implants allow for efficient chewing of various foods, promoting better digestion and overall health. On the other hand, traditional dentures can be restrictive in terms of food choices and may lead to suboptimal nutrition.

Improved Oral Health

Dental implants and crowns are made from inorganic, yet bio-compatible, materials. This means they are unaffected by the bacteria in the mouth. A dental implant crown cannot get a cavity and a dental implant will never need a root canal. Traditional dental bridges on the other hand are reliant on the health of the teeth that are supporting the bridge. Since these teeth are still natural teeth they are susceptible to decay.

Speech Improvement

Missing teeth, especially in the front region of the mouth, can impact speech clarity. Dental implants fill the gaps, helping individuals regain proper pronunciation and speech confidence. Traditional full dentures on the other hand can impact speech.

If you are seeking a reliable, long-lasting, and natural-looking tooth replacement option, dental implants come highly recommended by dentists. Dental implant specialists like the ones at Nashua Dental Group have decades of experience placing dental implants and have seen the positive impact they can have on patients’ lives over the years.
