5 Ways Dental Implants Benefit Your Smile

Dental implants offer patients with tooth loss a unique and advanced solution. We often recommend them for our Omaha, NE, patients suffering from one or more missing teeth. What benefits do they offer smiles and why should one consider dental implants?

Benefits of Dental Implants

  1. Natural Appearance: Each one will be topped with a dental crown, which we custom-make based on impressions we take of your smile. We use a natural looking material to create them, such as ceramic, which mimics the translucent nature of tooth enamel and can be shaded to match your smile.
  2. Stop Jawbone Loss: When we lose a tooth, the body’s response is to suspend the flow of calcium and phosphorus to the jawbone. Denied these crucial nutrients, the bone tissue deteriorates and patients develop an aged appearance, as well as further tooth loss. However, since they’re made from biocompatible titanium, they act as new tooth roots and stimulate the growth of jawbone tissue.
  3. Long Lasting: Since they stimulate the growth of jawbone tissue and act as new tooth roots, bonding with the jawbone itself, they last much longer that bridges or dentures. In fact, with proper care and attention, one could potentially enjoy a new tooth that lasts decades.
  4. Address Minor and Advanced Tooth Loss: We’ve placed them to address a single missing tooth, or used multiple dental implants to secure a bridge or denture. Again, the prosthetic will be created from impressions and made with lifelike materials.
  5. Restore Your Ability to Enjoy Your Favorite Foods: Since dental implants offer strong and reliable tooth replacement, they also restore your ability to eat your favorite foods once again. If you have any questions about tooth loss, then contact our team today.
