Dr. James Kiehl, cosmetic dentist in Nashua, NH is encouraging his patients with missing or failing teeth to discover the benefits that permanent dental implants can provide beyond just improved aesthetics. In addition to improving the look of a smile after tooth loss, dental implants are proven to provide a variety of crucial health benefits as well.
Most adults who experience tooth loss rely on bridges, dentures, or partial dentures to conceal the void and partially restore function to their mouth. This solution not only leads to sub-par aesthetics, but can also lead to bone resorption, pain and discomfort, and insufficient biting force which can restrict the patient from having a well rounded diet. Dental implants, however, provide a near-natural solution for patients that perform and feel just like a natural tooth.
“Dental implants offer a whole host of benefits for our patients who are currently living with missing teeth or other traditional restorative appliances,’ said Dr. Kiehl. “We tell our patients that dental implants are in most cases even better than their natural teeth before they were lost—implants are stronger, require minimal maintenance, and can be designed to look exactly how the patient wants them.”
Dental implants are completed by surgically installing a small metal screw in the jawbone where the patient has lost a permanent tooth or series of teeth. After the metal screw is inserted, it is given several weeks to heal before an artificial crown is attached to it. Because the design of an implant mimics that of a natural tooth, it provides just as much, or even more biting force, than natural teeth. Because of that, patients can enjoy eating virtually any food they want, ensuring that they have a well rounded diet of fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, and meat.
The implanted root of the permanent implant also helps to keep the jawbone from shrinking once the original tooth has fallen out. The metal implant acts just like the natural tooth root, giving the tissues of the jawbone material to support and bond to, keeping it in a viable state. Otherwise, jawbone resorption can lead to the tooth loss of surrounding teeth, or can even alter the patient’s face shape in the case of entire top and bottom arches of missing teeth.
