The Benefits and Importance of Dental Implants
Implants are the best way to recreate the look, feel, and function of natural teeth. In addition to replacing missing teeth, dental implants also protect the neighboring natural teeth by preserving bone. Dental implants provide the ability to chew healthy food, and give patients the confidence to smile.
By generating bone growth in the area around the implant (a process called "osseointegration"), dental implants strengthen the bone and build support, reducing the sunken look that occurs with bone loss in the jaw. Osseointegration is a significant benefit of implant placement because it also helps prevent future bone loss.
