How Dental Implants Work
Irving Dental Implant Experts
The introduction of dental implants has transformed the way we are able to replace missing teeth, offering patients a long-term solution for restoring teeth with implant-supported crowns, bridges, and full dentures. This advanced dental technology can provide teeth that feel just as strong and as stable as natural teeth, and which are every bit as comfortable while aesthetically enhancing your smile.
If you are struggling with tooth loss or know you will soon lose teeth, contact Radiance Dentistry, Dental Implant Center to book your consultation with Dr. Mounir Iskandar. This initial appointment in our comfortable dental office will enable Dr. Iskandar to explain treatment more fully and to evaluate your suitability.
Benefits of Dental Implant Treatment
Dental implants are largely considered to be the gold standard for replacing missing teeth because of the potential benefits for patients. The most obvious of these benefits is the ability for greater enjoyment of life. This might sound bold, but anyone with a missing tooth or teeth fully understands some of the things they are having to sacrifice now: confidence, the ability to enjoy the foods they want, and the ability to laugh without embarrassment. But the benefits go far past this.
Some of these benefits include:
- The ability to halt bone loss: This is one of the most unique and important benefits of choosing dental implant treatment. A natural tooth root provides continual stimulation to the bone surrounding it through the forces created every time you bite down or chew on that tooth. When it is removed, this stimulation is lost and as a result, the bone cells that used to surround the tooth root are no longer replaced. By artificially replacing your tooth root with a dental implant post, we can restore this stimulation to your jawbone, halting further bone loss.
- A positive effect on your remaining natural teeth: Restoring missing teeth with dental implants will protect your remaining teeth, preventing them from moving out of position and maintaining your bite. Your dental implants will further protect your natural teeth by spreading the forces created during biting and chewing. Unlike other methods of tooth replacement, there is no need for healthy natural teeth to be adapted in any way.
- Enjoy having strong and stable teeth: Dental implant teeth are supported by strong dental implant posts that have fused with your jawbone, effectively becoming part of you. This ensures your dental implant teeth feel incredibly strong and stable, which can be an amazing experience for patients who have previously struggled with ill-fitting and loose dentures.
- Dental implants are long-lasting and durable: With the proper care, dental implants should last for many years. For some people, they will last a lifetime. This is why we are confident enough to provide a 10-year warranty on our dental implants and implant-supported restorations provided by Radiance Dentistry.
