Dental implants offer a number of advantages over other forms of tooth replacement. Due to their placement, dental implants offer unique advantages including:
- Security – Dental implants will not slip or fall out
- Aesthetics – Dental implants allow for completely natural looking restorations
- Functions – Dental implants restore 100 percent of your tooth’s function
- Preservation – Dental implants do not negatively impact adjacent teeth
Unlike dentures that are held in place with adhesives or dental bridges that rely on adjacent teeth for support, dental implants are placed directly into your jawbone to ensure maximum restoration of strength and function. During your tooth replacement consultation with Bergenfield cosmetic dentist Dr. Howard Perlmutter, the advantages of dental implants can be discussed in full.
The loss of a tooth allows your body to reabsorb minerals in the jaw, ultimately leading to jaw shrinkage and changes to the structure of your face. Because mineralization in the jaw is dependent on the roots of your teeth, unless the missing root is replaced, these changes are inevitable.
Dental implants replace missing tooth roots, a function not served by any other tooth replacement option. Due to this, dental implants are the only tooth replacement that can prevent jaw shrinkage and preserve the natural structure of your face.
