Why Are Dental Implants So Effective?

January 31, 2014

You may have heard about dental implants
and how effective they are, but do you know why they’re so effective? It’s
because of how they’re structured and how they interact with your smile.
Natural teeth are made up of two parts: the tooth itself,
which is what everyone sees, and the root underneath that anchors each tooth to
the jaw. A full row of healthy teeth is important for smiling, speaking clearly
and enjoying a nutritious diet. Meanwhile, your tooth roots have the very
important job of holding those teeth in place and keeping the jaw healthy
throughout life.
What happens when you lose one or more teeth? You not only
lose what’s on top, you also lose the root underneath. As a result, you’ll
eventually lose bone tissue where the root was. Traditional bridges, partials
and dentures replace what you’ve lost but don’t replace the part of your smile
responsible for keeping the rest of your jaw strong and healthy.
The only service that replaces missing roots is dental implants. Using small posts made
of titanium—a biocompatible metal—this restorative service can help you achieve
results that look natural and functional naturally as well. Imagine smiling
with confidence and enjoying all your favorite foods again. With dental implants from Smile by Design, Dr. Santos and Dr. Folck
can help.
Do you want to know if you’re a candidate for dental implants? Call us today for a
