Why dental implants?
The loss of natural teeth may be a devastating situation for many patients. The teeth are expected to last a lifetime, and when they don’t, it may be concerning. It can negatively impact one’s oral health and wellness, as well as the appearance and functionality of the smile. Drs. Schmitt and Oh of Schmitt Dental in Clarksville, TN encourages patients to consider the benefits of tooth replacement options such as dental implants.
There are several advantages to using dental implants for replacing missing teeth. These titanium metal restorations look like small posts that Drs. Schmitt and Oh are able to place during oral surgery. The bone of the jaw wraps around the implant through a process known as osseointegration, solidifying its place in the smile and ensuring optimum strength and functionality. Once the dental implant is firmly in place, it can be restored with crowns, bridges, or dentures, depending on the unique needs of our patients.
Dental implants are chosen because they are a permanent solution. Most patients who take good care of their smile will enjoy their dental implants over a lifetime. This cannot be said for the alternative options, including bridges and dentures. Additionally, dental implants help maintain the bone structure of the jaw. Many patients who choose restorations such as full dentures will find that the loss of bone occurs over time and can create a sunken-in appearance to the jaw. This happens due to bone loss, which can be completely avoided with the use of dental implants. Dental implants are simple to care for, natural-looking, and versatile for tooth replacements.
