dental implantsNow, dental implants are the preferred form of tooth replacement when compared to dentures. While both are effective forms of tooth replacement, the benefits of implants far exceed those of dentures. With implants, you’ll not only benefit from a permanent solution, but an amazing smile the functions and acts natural. Not to mention, you’ll help stimulate new bone growth to promote your oral health while protecting your facial structures. At West End Dental Group, we have the information you need to know about implants in Beaumont, TX.

Permanent Solution

Unlike other forms of false teeth, implants are a permanent solution that stay anchored in place. Titanium posts are surgically inserted into the jawbone to act as the tooth root. Then, abutments are used to hold a prosthetic tooth in place. This allows the implants to be securely held in place so there’s no slipping or discomfort.

Looks Natural

Implants are the only form of prosthetic teeth to mimic your natural teeth the closest in terms of appearance. No matter if you’re replacing one tooth or all of your teeth, your implants will look and feel natural so no one will ever be able to tell they aren’t your real teeth.

Improved Function

Implants offer an increased biting force of over 70 percent when compared to dentures. They will stay firmly in place so you’re able to eat what you like and speak clearly without fearing slipping or discomfort.

Protects Oral Health

Implants increase your oral health when compared to other forms of tooth replacement because they provide your surrounding teeth and facial structures with the support they need. When dentures are used, overtime your surrounding teeth will begin to shift, leading to gum disease and tooth decay. You’re also likely to experience gum irritation, which can lead to infection. Implants, on the other hand, prevent additional damage to the teeth and gums by providing adequate support and no irritation to the gums.

Reduces and Prevents Bone Loss

When you lose teeth, your bones and surrounding structures begin to deteriorate due to lack of stimulation. Because a titanium post is inserted into the jawbone with an implant, your bones become stimulated. This not only helps prevent additional bone loss, but even encourages new bone growth.

Increased Convenience

Since implants aren’t removable, you care for them just as you care for natural teeth. There’s no need to worry about extra cleaning products or messy adhesives. Instead, just spend a few more minutes every day caring for your teeth to keep bacteria levels to a minimum. With the right care, you’ll have a successful implant procedure to allow your implants to last a lifetime.
