Have you lost several teeth over the years? Missing one natural tooth didn’t seem too bad since it wasn’t in the front of your mouth. As time went along, you noticed the neighboring teeth become loose as well and fall out. Now, you find it hard to chew your favorite foods and it’s embarrassing to even open your mouth to laugh. What you need is an effective, permanent tooth replacement to solve your dental problems. Luckily, Orban Family Dental offers dental implants in Coeur d’Alene, solving mild to severe tooth loss for local patients.
Why should I choose dental implants as my tooth replacement?
1. Dental implants keep your jawbone strong and healthy.
You may think the only important part of your teeth is what others can see when you smile. In actuality, there’s a vital part of your tooth that is buried within your jawbone. The visible portion of your tooth merely protects it: your tooth root. The root of your tooth is full of nerve endings and stimulate blood flow in your jawbone when you chew. This keeps your jawbone healthy and strong.
When you lose a tooth, you also lose your vital tooth root. This causes your jawbone to deteriorate and created a premature sagging facial appearance. Dental implants are equipped with a biocompatible titanium tooth root that naturally fuses with your jawbone, continuing to keep your jawbone healthy.
2. You don’t have to worry about your neighboring teeth anymore.
Your teeth work together and support each other. When one goes missing, they start to shift and change positions—not only that but the surrounding tooth roots will begin to weaken. Not only will your smile look crooked overtime, but you could face additional tooth loss.
3. Maintaining your dental implants is just as easy as maintaining natural teeth.
There are other great tooth replacement options that mimic your natural teeth—up until it comes to maintenance. This can turn patients off to the idea of replacing their teeth—or parallelly patients may replace their teeth and end up with dental problems in the future because they’re not properly maintaining their prosthetics. With dental implants, all you need to do is brush twice a day, floss regularly, and visit Dr. Orban for comprehensive checkups and professional cleanings.
4. You’ll love your improved, healthier smile.
If you saw someone with dental implants, you would never know! It doesn’t matter how many teeth you have replaced. Our dental prosthetics that are attached to your implant post are completely seamless amongst your natural teeth. Even if you must replace full arches of teeth, we can formulate custom dentures that will be anchored to your jawbone for a permanent, natural looking and feeling solution.
