Esthetically, this is achieved with advanced, lifelike materials, like dental ceramic designed to mimic even the luminescence of your tooth enamel. Functionally, however, the only way to mimic the roots of your lost teeth is with an appropriate number of dental implants. The biocompatible titanium that implant posts are made from is designed for the jawbone to fuse to each implant as it heals. Then, the posts can support your lifelike crown, dental bridge, or denture with the same comfort and stability as the roots that support your healthy teeth.
The Benefits of Implant Restorations
With the support of dental implants, your dental prosthesis won’t have to rely on hidden clasps or modified healthy teeth for support. Therefore, you can preserve more of your natural tooth structure and enjoy a more comfortable replacement for your lost teeth. For instance, implant-supported dentures won’t grow loose and shift painfully on your dental ridge as conventional dentures do over time.
However, the greatest benefit of dental implants is their ability to reestablish the functions of your lost teeth roots—mainly, the stimulation they provide, which your jawbone requires to stay strong and healthy. Stimulation from teeth roots and implant posts invites vital nutrients to your jawbone, which helps prevent the jawbone erosion that often occurs following tooth loss. In addition to replacing your lost teeth, implants also help keep your smile and surrounding facial structures healthy and youthful-looking.
