Do you have a few empty spaces in your smile? Dental implants, the latest tooth restoration option, can fill those gaps and improve your dental implantsappearance. Franklin, WI, dentist Dr. John Olsen of Franklin Dental explains how dental implants work and shares some benefits.

Implants become a permanent addition to your smile

Dental implants are the first restoration option that rebuilds your entire missing tooth. Implants consist of tiny titanium posts that are inserted into openings made in your jawbone. Once in place, they soon fuse to the bone. This process, called osseointegration is the most essential part of the implant process. Without it, the implant wouldn't be able to support the dental crown placed on top of it.

The crown is the visible part of your tooth that you use for chewing. It's created using an impression of your mouth as a guide to ensure that the tooth looks completely natural. As a result, no one will ever know that your tooth is artificial.

Implants offer benefits that no other restoration options do

Bridges are often used to replace one or missing teeth, but the restoration option can weaken the teeth that support the bridge. Dentures are used to replace a large section of teeth or all of the teeth in your upper or lower jaw. They tend to slip if they don't fit well, which can cause painful gum irritation. Wearing dentures decreases your biting power because the restorations only rest on your gums.

Dental implants don't affect nearby teeth at all and are designed to fit the gap in your smile perfectly. They're a good solution if you've lost one tooth and an even better one if you've lost all of your teeth. Because implant-supported dentures are attached to your jawbone, unlike dentures, they offer excellent stability and don't decrease your biting power. You can eat the hard foods you've been avoiding for years if you choose this option.

Jawbone resorption, a condition that occurs when your jawbone begins to shrink, is a common problem after the loss of a tooth. Without the constant pressure provided by your roots, the bone may begin to weaken. Eventually, this can cause the loosening or loss of other teeth and even change your appearance if your facial muscles begin to sag. Dental implants stimulate your jawbone and prevent these changes.
