This permanent tooth replacement offers many unique advantages for your smile.
If you are missing one more permanent teeth then you may be trying to figure out the best tooth replacement option to fit your needs. Maybe you’ve already done some research on the subject and are wondering whether dental implants are right for you. Our Tampa, FL, dentist Dr. Dana Cuculici can restore your smile with the help of dental implants. A dental implant is a small metal post that functions just like real tooth roots. If you are a good candidate for dental implants, you can have an implant placed by an oral surgeon or a periodontist and return to Dr. Cuculici to finish the restoration with an implant crown. Here are the many ways in which dental implants can benefit you.
Improve Your Appearance
Dental implants both look and function just like real teeth so no one will even know that you have dental implants. Nothing resembles a real tooth as much as a dental implant, since the implant is designed to take the place of tooth roots. This means that you’ll have a replacement tooth that blends right in with the rest of your smile.
Who doesn’t love noshing on their favorite foods? Well, if you are missing one or more teeth you may find it more than a little difficult to eat your favorite foods with ease. Since dental implants stay firmly in place and don’t move around you don't have to worry about having trouble eating again. So go ahead and enjoy the foods you love with full confidence.
If you don’t replace your missing tooth or teeth, the rest of your natural teeth will begin to move toward the open gap in your smile. As you might imagine, this can result in crooked teeth, gaps between teeth and other alignment problems that can’t be corrected without braces. Dental implants fill smile gaps and prevent teeth from shifting out of place.
Prevent Bone Loss
Once you lose a tooth the jawbone will begin to deteriorate because it’s not getting the full stimulation it needs. Luckily, dental implants are the only tooth replacement that actually replaces tooth roots and provides the jawbone with the stimulation it needs to prevent it from breaking down. A dental implant can preserve the natural structure and strength of your jawbone.
