Tooth Loss Leads to Bone Loss
Tooth loss has consequences that go far beyond the appearance of your smile. The jaw bone and bones that support your facial structures need stimulation to maintain their form and density. Bone resorption is a normal and inevitable process in which bone is lost when it is no longer supporting or connected to teeth. The alveolar bone which directly surrounds and supports your teeth operates this way. When a tooth is lost the lack of stimulation causes loss of alveolar bone. In fact, there is a 25% decrease in bone width almost immediately. Therefore, the more teeth you lose the more bone you lose. Bone loss in the face can cause premature aging, a sunken in facial appearance, decreased bite force, and bite misalignment among many other oral health problems.
Dental Implants Preserve Healthy Bone
The primary reason to choose dental implants, instead of bridgework or dentures, is because only dental implants can replace your missing teeth and preserve healthy bone structures. Because dental implants can fully fuse to your bone, they stabilize it and prevent any further loss. Only dental implants can stop the bone resorption process and protect your natural appearance and dental health.
Are Dental Implants Safe?
Absolutely. Titanium dental implants have been placed extensively since the 1970’s. Titanium is used because of its biocompatibility, light weight, and strength. It is in fact the most widely used material of all orthopedic joint replacement surgeries, and titanium dental implants have the highest success rate of any implanted surgical device.
