Should You Get Implants to Replace Lost Teeth?

If you’ve lost one or more teeth due to an injury or decay, you have several options for replacing them. Dental implants are among those options. Implants from David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Philadelphia offer a long-term solution to replacing lost teeth. These structures are resilient, long-lasting, and can be made to blend in perfectly with your natural teeth to revive the beauty of your smile. Here are a few reasons to consider implants for replacing lost teeth.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Missing teeth can change how you look, how you chew, and the health of surrounding teeth and gums. After evaluating your situation, your Philadelphia dentist may recommend implants to improve your smile, restore tooth function, and protect surrounding natural teeth. Here are some of the benefits of selecting implants to replace lost teeth:

  • Implants look and function like natural teeth.
  • Implants are durable and won’t come loose when chewing.
  • Implants stimulate bone growth to protect the shape of your jaw.
  • Implants keep teeth from shifting.
  • Implants beautify your smile.

Teeth stimulate the growth of bone cells to support the shape of your jawbone. When teeth go missing, bone growth deteriorates, causing your jawbone to sag. Implants act like natural teeth in providing the stimulation your bone cells need to keep your jaw firm and defined.

When you lose a tooth, it leaves an unsightly gap behind. Over time, surrounding teeth may start to shift to fill in that gap. That can significantly alter your smile and ability to chew. Implants prevent teeth from moving to protect your smile and improve tooth function.
