Benefits of Implant-Retained Restorations
Traditional prosthetics restore some function but do not positively impact long-term oral health. However, dental implants provide an array of benefits, such as:
Restored Dental Structure
Missing teeth not only impact aesthetics but bone health as well. The jaw bone utilizes the roots of teeth for support, but when a whole tooth is missing, the bone begins to resorb. Bridges, dentures, and partials serve as the visible portions of teeth, but not their roots. Dental implant treatment replaces the entire tooth; implant posts are placed into the jaw, serving as a stable foundation for restorations.
For patients missing one or both arches of teeth, traditional dentures are typically the recommended restoration. However, many patients find their dentures require adjustments over time to maintain a comfortable fit. When affixed by dental implants, dentures will not slide out of place or prevent you from chewing and speaking normally.
Preserved Natural Teeth
Non-implant bridges replace one or several missing teeth. During this treatment, otherwise healthy teeth are altered and crowned to support the false tooth that sits above the gum tissue. Placing implant-retained bridges does not require the adjustment of neighboring teeth.
