It’s important to pursue some form of tooth replacement if you have missing teeth. When you leave gaps in your smile, your remaining natural teeth can begin to move, drifting into the open spaces in your gums.
When your teeth move out of place, it can cause bite problems, leading to jaw and facial pain, difficulty with chewing and talking, and other issues. Implant-supported dentures fill the gaps left by missing teeth, providing patients with a comfortable feel and natural look while helping them preserve their oral health.
A dental implant also offers patients a unique benefit that other tooth replacement options do not. Dental implants act similarly to a natural tooth’s root, actually growing into the jaw bone, which gives the jaw bone needed stimulation. The jaw bone stimulation provided by dental implants encourages healthy bone growth, which is a benefit you won’t receive from other tooth replacement solutions.
Additionally, implant-supported dentures give patients outstanding stability, so they can socialize freely without wondering if their tooth replacement is going to come loose, shift, or fall out. If you’ve been considering dentures but are afraid they won’t be stable enough, implant-supported dentures may be a perfect choice.
