3 Ways Dental Implants Prevent Damage Due to Missing Teeth

If you are missing one or more teeth, it can affect much more than your appearance. In fact, patients who suffer from tooth loss are at an increased risk for tooth decay, jaw deterioration, and even poor nutrition.

To prevent any serious oral health issues, you must talk to your denturist about tooth replacement options such as dental implants or traditional dentures.

Here are three ways dental implants help prevent damage due to missing teeth:

1. They Improve Your Nutrition

When you are missing one or more teeth, it can become difficult to eat, as you may restrict your diet to only those foods that are least painful and cumbersome to eat. Sometimes, this means that patients aren’t able to eat the foods they need to stay healthy.

Tooth implants look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth, and allow patients to easily eat the foods they love, and ensure they get the nutrients they need for a good quality of life.


2. They Prevent Further Tooth Loss

Your teeth are held in place by the roots just under the surface of your gums and from the support of your surrounding teeth. This means that when you lose a tooth, you also lose support for the nearby teeth. This will cause your remaining teeth to shift and even become loose over time.

Shifting teeth are more vulnerable to tooth decay, which can lead to further tooth loss. To prevent any subsequent damage to your teeth, you should talk to your denturist about whether or not dental implants are right for you.

Are you a good candidate for dental implants?

Dental implants are an excellent tooth replacement option, but they are not the right choice for everyone. The ideal candidate for dental implants is someone who:

  • Is in good oral and overall general health
  • Doesn’t smoke
  • Has healthy gum tissue that is free of periodontal disease
  • Has adequate bone in their jaw to support the implant

3. They Prevent Jaw Deterioration

Your jawbone needs pressure from your tooth roots to remain healthy, and when you suffer from tooth loss, the jaw bone loses this stimulation and begins to deteriorate. By filling up this empty space with a dental implant, you can help your jaw bone remain healthy.

Remember: The longer you wait to start the dental implant process, the harder it will be to repair your smile. In many cases, loss of jawbone can lead to shrinkage and facial collapse.
