What Teeth can Dental Implants Replace?


Posted on 6/30/2016 by Tessa Smith-Greisch
A diagram of a dental implant inside a patients jaw.If you are facing tooth loss you have probably heard of dental implants by now. Dental implants offer the most impressive tooth replacement option available on the market today.

Prosthetics of the past can't offer the same robust features and benefits of dental implants because implants mimic a tooth in nearly every way. Dental implants can be used to replace any tooth in the mouth!

What Make an Implant a Superior Tooth Replacement Option?

Your tooth has a root structure that keeps it firmly held in place in your mouth. Prosthetics are usually anchored in your mouth by the surrounding teeth instead of a root structure.

When a prosthesis is not supported by the bone under the gums the bone can deteriorate over time and lead to further tooth loss. A dental implant is held in place by a titanium screw that acts almost exactly as the root of your tooth would.

A dental implant is also able to give you all the function that your natural tooth would. When faced with removable prosthetics you would need to take the prosthesis out to eat food or sleep, which means you still need to deal with the discomfort of having to chew without a tooth or teeth.

Proper Implant Care

Compared to prosthesis, dental implants are easy to take good care of. There is no auxiliary care needed. Just continue to take care of your teeth with regular brushing and flossing.

It's important to stay vigilant in your oral healthcare routine when you have a dental implant due to the fact that gum disease and other oral maladies can cause dental implants to fail.
