Dental implant treatment provides patients with a range of benefits, from permanent tooth replacement to a restored bite. Many can improve their smile with dental implants, especially if you are unhappy with the way dentures or other restorations fit. Consider the following reasons to seek out dental implant treatment

When teeth are significantly decayed, sometimes they cannot be saved with fillings or root canal therapy. In these cases, extraction is recommended to protect the health of soft tissue and surrounding, healthy teeth. Tooth replacement should also be considered to prevent nearby teeth from shifting and affecting bite alignment.
The typical method of replacing these extracted teeth is through bridges or dentures, which are designed to replace your lost aesthetic. Dental implants and their restorations are placed into the jaw bone, reinforcing the dental structure and keeping teeth in place. If you are suffering from extensive decay, or require tooth extraction, dental implants protect your oral health.
Patients who have been missing teeth for some time will have lost bone structure in their jaw. After teeth are lost or removed, the jaw bone begins to resorb bone tissue. Dental implant posts are made of biocompatible material that supports jaw bone health, restoring its integrity and strength. After being placed into the jaw, implants fuse with the bone and replace the former tooth root. Known as osseointegration, this process is the reason dental implants last for so long. Whether you are missing a single tooth or many teeth, implants provide a foundation for permanent restorations.
Bridges and dentures, although reliable types of tooth replacement, do not offer the same benefits as dental implants. Bridges require other teeth to act as anchors, and preparing those teeth diminishes natural tooth structure. Dentures shift, fall out, or cover the palate, limiting the wearer’s ability to enjoy everyday life. Implant posts, on the other hand, utilize existing bone structure to support themselves and do not shift or move in place. Restorations attached to implants
are stable in the smile and remain resilient to wear and tear.
