There are several different concerns that come with tooth loss. When it comes to replacing your lost teeth, the best way to do so is to ensure that all of those concerns are effectively addressed. For instance, most dental bridges and dentures today are crafted from highly lifelike dental porcelain, which not only addresses the gaps in your bite but also the lifelike appearance of your smile. However, addressing the unseen problems that arise from losing one or more teeth roots requires something more – such as one or more dental implant posts. For patients in Oxnard, CA, who have lost one or more teeth, dental implants are a popular and comprehensive way to address those concerns as well as the more visible effects of tooth loss.
What Implants Are Meant to Do
Modern dental prostheses are meant to rebuild your smile in as many ways possible. Dental implants are specifically designed to rebuild your teeth’s support system, including implanted anchors that mimic healthy, natural teeth roots. The posts are implanted into your jawbone, which fuses to their biocompatible titanium surfaces. Once you’ve healed, your dentist can attach your customized dental crown, bridge, or denture to the posts, recreating the root-and-crown structures that make your healthy teeth so strong and durable.
How They Improve Other Dental Prostheses
By improving the foundation of your replacement teeth, dental implant posts provide a more stable and comfortable solution for supporting your lifelike dental crown, bridge, or denture. This means your prosthesis won’t lose its grip and shift along your dental ridge uncomfortably over time. The implant posts also help ensure that your prosthesis lasts longer by keeping your jawbone properly stimulated. This stops your jawbone from changing shape due to a loss of stimulation, which is common following the loss of your teeth roots.
