How Dental Implants Can Improve Your Smile

For those with missing teeth or facing tooth extractions, restoring their smile is an essential next step. There are many ways to replace a missing tooth, including dental bridges and dentures, but dental implants are the most popular and highly recommended by experienced periodontists in Oshawa. The innovative technology and low-risk periodontal surgery offer many benefits, from durability to unmatched functionality, resulting in a long-lasting smile enhancement. 

If you're exploring tooth replacement options that elevate your smile, read on to learn why you should choose dental implants with a trusted periodontist like Dr. Adam Ohayon and The Perio Centre team. 

A Realistic Tooth Replacement

The number one factor to consider when choosing between bridges, dentures, and implants is how well each option mimics the look, feel, and function of a healthy natural tooth. Periodontists in Oshawa recommend dental implants because of their ability to seamlessly blend with natural neighbouring teeth without sticking out. When choosing the crown, the team will match the colour of your teeth and the shape and size to maximize smile aesthetics. 

Reduce Shifting Teeth

When there is a space between one or more of your teeth after an extraction or a tooth is lost, it can trigger movement of the remaining teeth. Over time, this slight movement can cause your teeth to become crooked or shifted, which not only changes the appearance of your smile, but the altered alignment can also affect your bite, which can cause trouble with speech and digestion while also increasing TMJ pain as well as tooth damage. Replacing a missing tooth with dental implants prevents teeth from shifting drastically, preserving your healthy bite for more comfort in day-to-day life. 

Preserve Your Facial Structure

When a tooth root is completely extracted from the bone or missing, the jaw bone can lose density because it is no longer stimulated by a tooth. As time passes, the changes to the bone can result in an altered facial structure. As the jaw bone shrinks, the face shape will begin to flatten, which can create the appearance of aging. Dental implants are the most effective way to avoid facial collapse from missing teeth because they are designed to stimulate the jaw bone. The prosthetic tooth root is inserted directly into the jaw bone by skilled periodontists. The periodontal surgery is done carefully and skillfully to ensure that the bone will not degenerate because it detects a tooth's presence. Ultimately, this will preserve facial structure for longer and extend the lifespan of your smile.
