When people replace their extracted teeth with dental implants in Columbia, MD, the beauty and functionality of their smile is restored.
Here is more on why those who have tooth extractions should get treated with dental implants.
Why Do I Need My Teeth Extracted Before Getting Treated With Dental Implants In Columbia, MD?
People may need one or more of their teeth extracted before getting treated with dental implants for a number of reasons. Teeth that have severe decay or damage, for example, will need to be extracted.
Once the tooth extraction has happened however, the patient will want to replace that missing tooth as soon as possible before it starts causing additional problems. When people have missing teeth for a long period of time, their jawbone will start losing density. This is because the patients natural tooth root is no longer stimulating their jawbone to keep it healthy and strong.
The longer a tooth root is not stimulating a jawbone, the more jawbone density loss the patient will experience. With extensive jawbone density loss, the patient will experience jawbone resorption, giving them a sunken in looking jaw and an aged facial appearance.
How Do Dental Implants Restore My Smile After Tooth Extractions?
Dental implants are the best tooth replacement option for extracted teeth because they are designed to act like natural teeth. The dental implant post is made to act like a natural tooth root. When the dental implant post is placed in the patient’s jawbone, it not only fuses with the jawbone so patients have a permanent smile, it also stimulates the jawbone.
When the jawbone is stimulated by a dental implant post, it keeps it healthy and strong so it can dependably support the patient’s new smile. Dental implants can replace one or more extracted teeth with various types of dental implant options. These state-of-the-art tooth replacement options include single dental implants, implant supported dentures, and full mouth dental implants.
