Dental Implants in Fargo, North Dakota
Having missing teeth not only affects your smile but it also hinders you from daily tasks such as chewing and eating. Dental implants can restore the natural appearance of your smile, and allow you to return to proper chewing, eating, and speaking functionality. Aside from these benefits they can also have a positive impact on your oral health.
Protect Bone Density - Teeth put pressure on the jawbone, and it is this pressure that keeps your underlying bone mass healthy and strong. After a tooth loss, bone matter gradually resorbs into your body. Implants stimulate the jaw and preserve bone density, preventing your facial structure from collapsing and preserving your appearance for many years to come.
Improve Periodontal Health – Gums are delicate, and the problem of cleaning around dentures or bridges will affect gum health as it does tooth health. With implants, you can easily clean around the tooth, just like all your other teeth.
Stop Teeth from Shifting (Malocclusion) – Losing a tooth creates a gap,and the surrounding teeth will begin to shift to fill in the space. This can potentially harm your bite, causing excessive tooth wear, teeth grinding, or even TMJ disorder. Crowded or crooked teeth which have shifted are more difficult to keep clean and disease free. Besides affecting your oral hygiene, drifting teeth could require braces or other corrective measures.
Dental implants artificially replace natural tooth roots with posts that are inserted into the jawbone to support a restorative or replacement crown, bridge or denture. There is minimal maintenance required other than good oral hygiene and regular checkups and cleaning by the dentist. Implants feel natural and comfortable, providing the best visual appeal. Implants can last for many years, even decades with propercare.
