While tooth loss is still a problem for many patients, and its effects can be disastrous for your smile, there are several options for addressing it and rebuilding your smile. Only one of those options, however, can offer the complete restorative benefits that come with replacing your teeth’s roots as well as their visible crowns. For many patients in Olathe, KS, dental implants are ideal for not only rebuilding smiles, but also ensuring their optimal health long after experiencing tooth loss.
They support replacement teeth better
Dental implants are small posts designed to support replacement teeth such as dental bridges and dentures. Traditionally, these prostheses relied on solutions like hidden clasps, adhesives, and/or the natural curvature of your dental ridge to remain in place. While adequate, these solutions don’t offer the comfort, stability, and security that implant posts provide. Like natural teeth roots, they anchor your replacement teeth in place.
They work for most tooth loss patients
Because dental implant posts are made from biocompatible titanium, they’re safe and effective for most adult patients who’ve lost one or more teeth. Each post is also implanted individually, meaning one or a combination of posts can replace as many teeth as necessary, from a single lost tooth to entire row of teeth.
They keep the rest of your smile healthy
The point of your teeth roots, as well as dental implant posts, is to help keep your teeth and the rest of your smile healthy for life. They do this by stimulating your jawbone when you bite and chew, which is necessary for telling your body to send your jawbone and teeth a healthy supply of essential nutrients.
