Dental implants are the next best thing to original teeth. They greatly enhance your oral health and are a reliable alternative to traditional methods of replacing missing teeth. By taking the place of the roots of teeth, dental implants keep the bone of your jaw stimulated and healthy. If you are missing teeth, and want a secure replacement that will keep your smile healthy and attractive for years to come, schedule a consultation with Dr. Colin A. Forde to discuss the benefits of dental implants at his Albuquerque, NM, dental practice.
When we lose teeth, the jawbone begins to weaken and shrink, since there are no tooth roots to stimulate the bone. The only way to remedy this problem is by having implant posts placed in the jawbone.
When you lose teeth, your body determines that the jawbone is no longer needed to hold teeth in place. As a result, the body diverts the nutrients required for good jawbone health to other areas of your body, and your jaw begins to shrink and become fragile. Dental implants fuse with the jawbone, alerting the body to keep the jawbone in good health to support your new implants. Once the dental implant posts fuse with jawbone, they can support dental crowns, a bridge, or dentures. Implant-supported prosthetics are secure, and do not require clasps, adhesives, or crowns for stability.
