Find out what dental implants can do for your smile.
If you’ve been doing a little research into the different ways to replace missing teeth you may be curious as to whether or not dental implants may be the right choice. Dental implants are artificial teeth that replace the entire tooth from the roots to the crown. Getting implant dentistry from our South Orange, NJ, dentist Dr. Fariba Farrokhi offers many benefits. Here are just some of the reasons people choose dental implants,
You Want to Prevent Bone Loss
With tooth loss comes bone loss, and the one and the only way to prevent additional bone loss is by placing a dental implant. A dental implant is the only tooth replacement that actually stimulates the jawbone in the same way as natural tooth roots, promoting new bone cells.
You Want to Make Biting Easier
Anyone with tooth loss knows the challenges of being able to eat. If you find yourself having a tough time eating some of the foods you once loved dental implants can restore strength back into your bite. Mealtimes don’t have to be challenging. Dental implants can help.
You Want to Restore Natural Speech
Tooth loss also has its impact on speech, making it difficult to pronounce certain words. If you’re dealing with altered speech due to tooth loss, you’ll also be relieved to know that dental implants can restore speech and make speaking feel natural again. That’s because the dental implants that our South Orange, NJ family dentist offers feel and act just like a real tooth.
You Want to Provide Support to the Face
You might not realize this until you deal with tooth loss, but your teeth help to fill out and support your natural facial structure. Tooth loss results in a loss of support, which also causes the face to change shape. As the face changes shape, the skin also starts to sag and create lines and wrinkles. Getting dental implants as soon as possible after tooth loss can prevent these signs of premature aging.
