O’Fallon Dental Implant Dentist Explains Why Dental Implants Are The Stable Tooth Replacement Option

Written by Dr. Brace on Oct 7, 2014

When people are searching for replacement teeth, the usually want many of the same things:

· Replacement teeth that stay in place and allow the person to speak and eat naturally

· Replacement teeth that look natural

· Replacement teeth that are beneficial for the health of the patient’s smile

· Replacement teeth that are easy to care for

Dental implants offer all of these benefits. Our O’Fallon dentists have discussed with our patients why they choose dental implants. We have found that, above all things, dental patients love this treatment option because it is reliable and stable for years.

For example, a dental implant, once inserted (which means the dental implant has been grounded into the jawbone with a titanium root) does not come in and out of the patient’s mouth at all. So once your implant is complete, it will stay in place just like your natural teeth do. You will not have to worry about this replacement tooth moving around or shifting at inopportune times.

Dental implants further contribute to the overall health and stability of the patient’s mouth. You may not know that once you lose a tooth, your remaining teeth may actually suffer as a result. Each one of your teeth serves as placeholder along your gum line. So when one of these teeth is missing, your other teeth can become destabilized. Over time this may contribute to further tooth loss as well as bone tissue deterioration in your jawbone. That’s why the dental implant root is so vital—this root keeps your smile in place and your bone tissue stronger.

The innovative and highly effective dental implant is allowing patients suffering from tooth loss to restore and reclaim their smiles. To get even more information about what dental implants can do for you, please feel free to contact our O’Fallon dental implant dentist office by phone or online.
