Most Houston residents will lose a tooth at some point in their lives, but that doesn’t mean your smile has to suffer. There are numerous ways to fix a lost tooth, but today, Dr. Meghna Dassani would like to educate you about the best option for a healthy smile that will last a lifetime: dental implants. Here are some facts about dental implants. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation, don’t hesitate to give us at Dassani Dentistry a call.
Implants function just like real teeth
If you are looking for a solution that will preserve and improve the health of your mouth, implants are the way to go. Although dentures and bridges can help simulate the function of real teeth, they do not stimulate the jawbone. Implants are placed directly in the jawbone, just like the root of a tooth. As a result, they can put a stop to painful, damaging reabsorption, so that you never have to deal with that “sunken in” look. On top of that, implants are sturdier than any other form of dental appliance.
Implants stabilize other appliances
If you already have bridges, crowns, or dentures and are considering implants, listen to this – implants add stability to other appliances. Because they are rooted in the jawbone like real teeth, they serve as excellent support systems for appliances and help to maintain the natural structure of your face.
Implants can last a lifetime
It is common to hear about dental appliances needing to be adjusted, fixed or replaced altogether. Houston residents with dentures, bridges, and/or crowns may find that they can wear out and require attention. However, implants have the potential to last as long as you do. There is no way to be certain, but the odd are in your favor. If cared for with good dental hygiene and regular visits to Dr. Meghna Dassani, your implant will likely stick with you forever.
