Replacing missing teeth with dental implants from your Bellbrook, OH dentist aids in function and beauty

Tooth replacement is not something that we often think about. That is, until a situation arises in which this form of restorative care becomes necessary. Through the past several years in dental history, implants have taken center stage as a highly effective form of tooth replacement. In fact, there is archeological evidence that various forms of implants have been used throughout history, dating back to ancient times.

The beauty of this restorative treatment is that missing teeth are replaced with implants, as well as the roots lost along with natural tooth structure. In our dental office near Bellbrook, OH, we recommend tooth replacement with dental implants for several reasons. Quite significant is the fact that implants are the only treatment that addresses both the missing tooth and its root.

The effects of tooth loss

When a natural tooth is lost or must be removed, there are consequences within the bone tissue of the jaw. This bone relies on stimulation from natural teeth roots to remain strong and intact. In the absence of teeth roots, the calcium contained in jawbone tissue becomes depleted, bone degeneration occurs. The rate of bone resorption varies from person to person. In everyone, however, the gradual process is persistent. In time, the effects of bone loss result in a facial transformation that implies age.

Dental implants to the rescue

Dental implants are prosthetics that are situated within healthy jaw bone. Once in place, the process of osseointegration occurs. Broken down, this term equates to ‘bone’ (osseo), and ‘to make whole’ (from the Latin integrate). In osseointegration, healthy bone becomes fused around the implant just as it does with natural teeth roots.

Through osseointration, dental implants become as stable as natural teeth, making this form of restorative care the most successful to date. Replacing a missing tooth, or all teeth, with dental implants or an implant-supported denture, results in superior comfort and function. In addition to sustaining natural jawbone structure for beautiful facial contours, implants allow you to eat, speak, laugh, and smile with total confidence.
