Are Dental Implants All They’re Cracked Up To Be?
What is all the hype about anyway? Why can’t people stop talking about implant dentistry? Let’s explore some of the key reasons implant dentistry has become so popular among Crown Council patients with missing teeth.
If you have missing teeth you know how frustrating it can be to try to eat certain foods. Even with dentures eating isn’t the same. It becomes difficult to chew and even thinking about taking a bite out of an apple is a pain. This is one of the many reasons implants have become so popular. Dental implants bring back the function and feel of your natural teeth and you’ll find yourself enjoying foods you thought you’d given up for good.
How do implants make this possible? The key is that implants restore not only the visible part of the tooth, but they actually restore the root as well. This anchors them into place and at the same time helps to stimulate your jaw bone. This stimulation mimics that of an actual tooth’s root and helps prevent the deterioration of bone which happens when a tooth is missing.
Not only do dental implants restore function, and health but another reason that makes them so appealing is their versatility. Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth or a whole mouth full of missing teeth with something called implant support dentures.
