Dental implants are a great choice for patients with missing teeth because they renew your natural, beautiful smile. Unlike traditional dental bridges, dental implants replace missing teeth without affecting your remaining teeth. If you live with tooth loss, dental implants are a viable solution.
Missing teeth pose more than a cosmetic concern; missing teeth can also impact how you chew, speak, and socialize with others. We understand missing teeth can affect every aspect of your daily life, which is why we proudly offer dental implants. When it comes to dental implants, choosing the right placement is essential. Dental implants in Springfield, MO are designed to last a lifetime, so you and your dentist must choose the best options for fit and function.
Here are four reasons why dental implants are a great choice for replacing missing teeth:
1. Dental implants prevent bone loss.
One of the main benefits of dental implants is that they can prevent bone loss. When you lose a tooth, the body no longer sends regenerative resources to that area, resulting in bone loss. With a dental implant, Drs. Preston and Shannon White surgically place a titanium post into your jawbone to strengthen and regenerate bone tissue.
2. Dental implants maintain structural integrity.
Dental implants also prevent your remaining teeth from shifting in the empty spaces in your mouth. Ultimately, dental implants preserve your teeth’s integrity, giving you a new and improved healthy smile.
3. Dental implants promote full integration.
Once we place the post into your jawbone, your jawbone will naturally fuse to it over the next several months. Not only does this stimulate bone growth, but it also creates a sturdy, long-lasting replacement tooth that’s integrated into your jawline.
4. Dental implants are customized for a natural fit.
Another benefit of dental implants is that they are designed to look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth. Our replacements are fashioned to fit seamlessly alongside your existing teeth, matching your teeth’s natural color and shape.
