Are dental implants a healthy tooth replacement?
Dental implants are probably the healthiest way to replace missing teeth.
Most dentists, including the dentists at our Tacoma, WA dental office, will tell you that dental implants are considered the gold standard when it comes to tooth replacement. Not only do dental implants look and feel most like your natural teeth, but there is another advantage that many people don’t realize. Dental implants will protect your bone health.
Why Choose a Dental Implant?
When a tooth root is present in your jaw, the area is regenerated because of the stimulating acts of chewing and biting. When the tooth is missing, this no longer happens, so the jawbone starts to break down. If a person is missing many teeth, often their face will develop a sunken-in appearance, making them look much older than they are. This is a byproduct of having dentures for tooth replacement.
With a dental implant, the titanium portion takes the place of the tooth root and signals the body to continue regenerating the area. The jawbone stays healthy and strong.
