Dental Implants

Solid Implant Facts

Aside from their obvious benefits, teeth are extremely important to our oral health. They not only allow us to eat and speak, but they also provide a sturdy foundation for both the top and bottom jawbones. Tooth loss not only compromises the look of your smile, but it also compromises the structure of your mouth. After a tooth is removed from the mouth, the bone around that tooth begins to reabsorb into the body. Because there is no tooth to keep it in place, the bone will continue to deteriorate. A dental implant is an incredible technological device that protects the integrity of the underlying jawbone while providing an aesthetic and fully functional prosthetic tooth to replace the one that was lost.

Each time you enjoy a meal, the bite pressure exerted as you chew is transferred from your teeth to the bone of your jaw. At the site of a lost tooth, no bite pressure is received by the bone. As a result, the jawbone atrophies. Over time, the density of the bone is reduced, making your face look older due to the lack of structural support. Also, nearby teeth may begin to loosen in their sockets from the reduction in jawbone density.
