One of the most outstanding benefits of dental implants is that they allow a single missing tooth to be replaced in the mouth without working on any other teeth. In this circumstance, dental implants also allow the missing tooth to be replaced permanently in the mouth.
A crown connected to an implant does not have to be taken in and out of the mouth like a partial denture. It is custom fabricated to blend with the remaining teeth, take the place of the missing tooth, and feel and function just like a natural, healthy tooth.
In addition to restoring a missing tooth to the dental arch, dental implants have other functions. When a tooth is lost, the bone that surrounded that tooth does not have a purpose. Without needing to support a tooth, the bone begins to dissolve.
When a dental implant is placed, the implant stimulates the bone to grow more densely around the implant. In essence, the dental implant keeps the body from dissolving the jawbone. Not only does a single tooth replacement with a dental implant look great, but it will also function like a natural tooth.
With the implant fully integrated, the implant provides exceptional stability, allowing one to eat foods like the tooth was never lost in the first place.
