Benefits Of Dental Implants
- Bone Retention: The titanium implant post is a prosthetic root structure. The implant fuses with the jaw bone and even promotes natural bone regeneration. The dental implant helps to stabilize the jaw bone and the integrity of the facial structure.
- Natural Function & Aesthetic: Dental implants allow patients to enjoy the full function of their bite. Patients enjoy a healthy diet without restriction. The dental restoration attached to the implant will be custom designed to look and feel like a natural tooth or teeth. The dental restoration is made from high-quality dental material that is decay and stain resistant for a beautiful, natural smile.
- Low Maintenance: Dental implants can be cared for just like natural teeth. No special cleaners or methods are necessary to maintain your dental implants. With proper at-home oral hygiene and regular dental checkups, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth. A bridge can be successfully used to replace a single missing tooth but is commonly used to replace consecutively missing teeth. Also known as a partial fixed denture, the dental bridge is one treatment option Oakton Dental Center offers for lost or missing teeth.
Replacing missing teeth is necessary to prevent further deterioration of the jaw, gums, and surrounding teeth. Missing teeth can lead to bone recession, gum disease, and further tooth loss.
A dental bridge can be used to help support a stable oral foundation and to restore the aesthetics of the smile. A dental bridge will require healthy adjacent teeth to act as supporting anchors. A substantial amount of tooth material will be removed from the neighboring teeth to make room for the bridge. Dr. Ahrabi will often recommend combining dental implant technology with the traditional dental bridge to avoid using otherwise healthy teeth to secure a bridge.
