Rebuilding your smile is a unique process, tailored to your individual needs and goals. Nevertheless, some needs are universal to every smile, such as the need to replace a tooth that has been lost or is rendered ineffective by damage or disease. As a dedicated dental expert, Dr. Engelberg takes pride in expertly restoring patients’ smiles, even in the midst of the most destructive dental issues. Today, we explain why dental implants can be a vital part of your smile makeover if you’ve lost one or more teeth, and how they improve your oral health long-term.
Attention to Detail
The purpose of a smile makeover is to improve your smile’s health, beauty, and function through a select combination of procedures. If you’ve lost one or more teeth, than your smile’s future integrity may depend on replacing the entire structures of your lost teeth, which means more than just the visible portions. For the most effective teeth replacement results, Dr. Engelberg may recommend one or more dental implants. These are surgically inserted into your jawbone and act as prosthetic teeth roots.
A Lifelong Solution
By mimicking the design of your natural teeth, including its root, implant-supported dental prostheses offer unmatched stability when you bite and chew. Eliminating clasps and dental adhesives helps ensure that your partial or full denture won’t slip or shift while in use. Replacing lost roots also helps preserve the health and strength of your jawbone by inviting a healthy supply of nutrients. When teeth roots and dental implants are stimulated, they signal your body to send the appropriate amount of nutrients for your jaw to support and sustain your teeth, promoting a healthier, stronger smile for life.
