You may wonder: Why do you hear little mentions here and there about switching from traditionally supported prosthetics to those offered support by dental implants? Is there really a reason to take the time to consider a new device to complete your smile? Well, for some, sticking with the traditional approach is perfectly wonderful! However, our Overland Park, KS team reminds you that if you’re dealing with problems that you simply assumed you had to learn to “live with,” then implants might be your key to improvement. Learn more!
You’re Going To Get Absolute Stability
One of the major reasons patients start to consider switching from prosthetics with traditional support to those with the support of dental implants? It’s the stability. We encourage you to ask yourself how you feel about your stability at the moment in terms of your prosthetic. Are you wearing a denture or partial and worry frequently about it moving? Do you worry about damaging your bridge? When this is the case, remember that implants anchor the prosthetic all the way down into your jawbone, so nothing moves!
Those Implants Aren’t Going Anywhere
We remind you that, since dental implants are placed in your jaw, where they basically become one with your jaw tissue, there’s no movement, as mentioned. Since there’s no movement, these posts are really not going anywhere and that generally means for life! If you are worried about the longevity of your treatment or its ability to shift, changing to implants may be worth it.
You Want To Prevent Jaw Tissue Loss
Are you aware that the only way to really prevent jaw tissue loss, once you have dealt with tooth loss, is to replace the missing tooth or teeth with dental implants? This is because your jaw needs that pressure that your roots once gave it, in order to “know” that it’s supporting teeth. Otherwise, your body will absorb the tissue over time. This is something to consider!
You Want Improved Esthetics!
It’s also very possible that you’re not thrilled with the esthetics associated with your tooth replacement at the moment. Do you feel worried that people will see the clasps of your partial denture? Perhaps you have an older bridge and it’s not natural looking. You may simply worry about what it will look like if your denture slips or falls out. When it’s your appearance concerning you, consider dental implants. The finished result will look beautifully natural.
