Why Should I Choose Dental Implants to Replace Missing Teeth?

Pittsburgh Dental ImplantsWhen someone loses a tooth, their first concern is usually focused on how it will impact their appearance. While no one wants to look or feel like their smile isn’t up to par, there are also serious health concerns when it comes to missing teeth.

When missing teeth are not replaced, a chain reaction occurs:

  • The Alveolar bone, which holds your teeth, is not stimulated and therefore becomes weak.
  • As the Alveolar bone deteriorates, gum tissue is lost as well.
  • Your chewing and speech become impaired due to the gum loss.
  • The Basal bone (jawbone) depletes, causing the distance between your nose and chin to decrease.

If you are missing teeth, they need to be replaced. Dental implants are by far the most effective and long lasting tooth replacement option available. There are many benefits of dental implants, including:

  • Restoring the look and function of your missing teeth. With dental implants, there’s no need to worry about how your smile looks.
  • Dental implants are the only option that replaces your missing root along with your missing tooth.
  • Dental implants are built to last. While dental hygiene is still important, you do not have to worry about your implants getting cavities.
  • Chewing with implants stimulates your jawbone, keeping it strong.
  • Unlike dentures, with implants you can continue to eating your favorite foods without worry. Also implants stay in place, unlike dentures which may fall out and need to be removed at night.
  • Implants also do not have the adjustment time that dentures have so you can continue to speak, chew, kiss, smile, eat, and cough as normal.
  • Implants have a track record of reliability.

It’s important that you replace your missing teeth to preserve your dental health. During your initial consultation, Dr. Frye will perform a thorough evaluation to determine whether you’re a suitable dental implant candidate.
