When it comes to the variety of options in tooth replacement, most patients want to know one thing — what’s the very best investment they can make? It’s actually simple if you look at the facts. Dr. James Merriman wants you to know that nothing replaces missing teeth as well as dental implants in Marietta. Keep reading to learn about the tooth replacement option that’s best for your smile… and your wallet.
Dental Implants Are a Comprehensive Replacement Option
Some of the most common options for dealing with missing teeth are fixed bridges, non-implant supported dentures or an implant-supported prosthesis. The first two, unfortunately, just do half the job of replacement — they only give you back the visible portion of your missing tooth. But when you’ve lost a tooth, you’re also lacking its root. So why would you replace only half? By providing a prosthetic root for the replacement that sits on top, dental implants are the only comprehensive replacement option available.
TOOTH ROOT PROVIDES NECESSARY STIMULATION
The whole-tooth replacement provided by dental implants is crucial for more than simple stability. Our bones require constant stimulation to stay healthy, and the tooth’s root provides this necessary activity for the jawbone. Without it, your mouth will slowly degenerate and lose its shape due to tooth loss — and that means non-implant supported options will need to be refitted as the years pass. Dental implants, on the other hand, keep your jawbone healthy and whole for years to come.
EVEN MORE BENEFITS OF DENTAL IMPLANTS
Aside from being the best financial investment you can make, dental implants also provide wonderful benefits for a comfortable lifestyle — far more than other replacement options. Some of these added advantages include:
- Dental implants restore your ability to eat, speak and smile with confidence.
- A stable tooth replacement gives you freedom from messy denture adhesives.
- You’ll never have to worry about your teeth slipping out while you’re laughing, or moving around while you enjoy your favorite meals.
- Because your mouth stays healthy and whole, you’ll never experience that sunken, aged look that can result from missing teeth.
- When cared for properly, dental implants can last a lifetime.
