How Implantology Can Improve Your Oral Health


Posted on 7/13/2019 by Palisades Surgical Arts
How Implantology Can Improve Your Oral HealthThere was a time when people had two options if they lost a tooth or teeth. They could live with the loss, or they could get dentures. Neither of these solutions are ideal. Technology has added a new way to deal with this problem. That solution is dental implants. It is an option that offers many benefits and can help improve oral health.

Problems with Lost Teeth and Dentures

When you lose a tooth, many things will happen. If you lost the tooth due to disease, it could lead to problems with other teeth and the gums. Losing the tooth does not always make the disease go away. The space where the tooth was also means the surrounding tooth have lost their support and they can move or become loose.

The solution for entire arches of missing teeth is often dentures, but dentures have their own problems. They provide some support, but they require care. Removing them at night and cleaning them are necessary steps.

Even if dentures are in place or if the rest of the teeth are healthy, lost teeth lead to receding gums and bone loss. This is normal but is not good for overall oral health.

Turning to Dental Implants

Implants involve replacing natural teeth with the implant. The implant provides the same support that natural teeth do. They help keep the gums and the jaw healthy. Caring for implants is no different than caring for natural teeth. As long as a person takes the necessary steps, they will keep all of their teeth healthy.

The most common reason people give for not getting dental implants is the cost. When you think about the cost of not replacing the tooth or having to get several sets of dentures and caring for the dentures over the years, the cost is not as high as people think. Implantology is the best option to maintain good oral health when you lose a tooth or teeth.
