Dental Implants – Winchester VA
Let us help you maintain your youth with our advanced dental implants. Your teeth play an important role in the way you look because your profile depends on your jawbone. However, when you lose teeth, your jawbone begins to lose mass, which leads to sunken cheeks and thin lips. Dental implants stimulate the jawbone so that it doesn’t lose mass after your natural teeth are gone, and you are left with your youthful look!
Dental implants are stronger and more durable than their restorative counterparts bridges and dentures. Implants offer a permanent solution to tooth loss. Additionally, implants may be used in conjunction with other restorative procedures for maximum effectiveness. For example, a single implant can serve to support a crown replacing a single missing tooth. Implants can also be used to support a dental bridge for the replacement of multiple missing teeth, and can be used with dentures to increase stability and reduce gum tissue irritation. Procedural advancements, including the development of narrow implants, mean that more people are finding themselves candidates for implantation.
Dental Implants vs Dentures
While dentures are a good option to get back that complete set of teeth and beautiful smile, dental implants is considered a popular choice because of its benefits. Dental Implants provide a more natural teeth-like effect or function. It looks like a screw or cylinder, placed in your jaw and is used to substitute your tooth root. It will then fuse with your natural bone to become a strong and sturdy foundation for your tooth replacement.
You’ll look younger. Study shows that as we age and loose teeth, we also lose bone structures. This cause the skin around our mouth, cheeks, and eyes to appear more wrinkled. Dental Implants replace teeth and effectively help our patients look younger. It also gives them the confidence for that happy youthful smile.
Dental implants won’t slip or click when you talk, eat, or laugh so you can party and dine without any worry. You can brush, floss, and care for the teeth replaced using dental implants just like you would on your natural teeth. You don’t need to remove it at night and place it in a cup. Most importantly, they are built to last. Dental implants may need periodical adjustments but they can last a lifetime when properly placed and cared for.
