Benefits of Dental Implants
Williston Park NY

Dentist Examining Smile after Dental Implant was placed at Long Island Smile, Williston Park NY Dentist.At Long Island Smile, we offer dental implants as a treatment for tooth loss. Dental implants consist of small titanium rods that are surgically implanted into the jawbone. Your bone then gradually fuses to the implants, securing them in place. They essentially become stable roots that are used to support your new teeth. Dental implants are a unique treatment that has gained significant popularity, providing you with numerous benefits.

Eat All of Your Favorite Foods

When you lose your teeth, chewing food becomes more challenging. The more teeth you lose, the more difficult it becomes. You may even be unable to enjoy a lot of the foods you love. Along with missing out on many of your favorite foods, the inability to chew can interfere greatly with your digestion. This can lead to malnutrition. Dental implants are strong and stable, restoring your ability to enjoy all of your favorite foods once again. Moreover, when you can properly chew again, you can completely break down the foods you eat, allowing your body to absorb essential nutrients.

Your Speech is Restored

Your teeth control airflow when you speak, making it possible to communicate effectively with spoken words. Control over airflow enables you to form a wide variety of words and sounds. Tooth loss affects this control, making it more difficult to say certain words. You may also develop a lisp. Replacing teeth with dentures requires a bit of work to learn how to speak again, as you need to learn how to speak with a foreign object in your mouth. Dental implants feel just like your natural teeth, restoring your speech instantly.

Ease of Care

One of the biggest issues that many people have with dentures is that they require a tedious care routine. Every night, they need to be removed, brushed with a denture paste and soaked while you sleep. After finishing with your dentures, then you need to brush your natural teeth and gums. With dental implants, they can, and should, be brushed and flossed just like your natural teeth. The crowns are fixed in place on the Implants and do not ever need to be removed.

Comfortable and Natural

Another common issue that many people have with dentures is that they are uncomfortable. The base of dentures rests directly on your gum tissue, which was never meant to support the pressures that are exerted on them by this restoration. Moreover, while they are made from molds of your mouth, they will not always fit properly. Eventually, your jaw begins to change shape. When this happens, the dentures can slip out of place and rub against the gums, leading to painful sores. With dental implants, the implants provide the support for your teeth. They are also stable in the jaw, so there is no worrying about them slipping out of place.

Preventing Bone Loss in the Jaw

The teeth provide stimulation for the jawbone, which triggers the body to send the nutrients the jaw needs to remain strong and healthy. When you lose your teeth, the stimulation lessens. As a result, fewer nutrients are sent. Over time, the jawbone begins to grow weak and starts to change shape. Dental implants are implanted directly into the jawbone. They mimic the roots of your teeth and stimulate the bone in the same manner. Because of this, they prevent bone loss in the jaw, allowing it to maintain its strength and integrity.

Dental implants are a very popular treatment for restoring the functions and appearance of your missing teeth, giving you back your quality of life. For more information, and to find out if dental implants are right for you, call Long Island Smile today at (516) 243-7473.
