Improving your appearance is certainly one benefit of dental implants, but it's far from the only advantage of this tooth restoration option. Dental implants offered by your Dayton, OH, dentists, Drs. James and Jamie Shepler of North Main Dental, also provide a few benefits that may surprise you—read on to learn more!

The Various Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants restore both the root and crown (top) of your tooth. Titanium posts are implanted in your jawbone during minor oral surgery at our Dayton office. The posts soon begin to bond to your jawbone, becoming firmly rooted to the bone in just three to six months.

Implants are topped with dental crowns that look just the visible part of your natural teeth. The crowns are made from an impression of your mouth to ensure that your new teeth look and feel natural.

Dental implants offer these advantages:

  • Improved Appearance: No matter how strong your self-esteem is, your confidence is bound to take a hit after you lose a tooth. Implants fill the gap in your smile, allowing you to focus on other things besides the way your smile looks.
  • Long-Term Solution: Thanks to the bone-bonding capabilities of titanium, your dental implants will likely never need to be replaced.
  • Easy Care: You'll treat your dental implants just like your natural teeth. Daily brushing and flossing, as well as twice-a-year visits to our Dayton dental practice, are all that you need to do to keep your implants healthy.
  • Strong Jawbone: Your tooth roots press on your jawbone, keeping it strong and healthy. Resorption, a condition that occurs when the bone begins to shrink after tooth loss, can lead to loose teeth and sagging facial muscles. Dental implants constantly stimulate the jawbone, helping you to avoid these consequences.
  • Excellent Biting Power: Dental implants won't affect your ability to chew and bite. In fact, you'll be able to easily chew hard and tough foods.
  • Versatility: Dental implants aren't just used for single missing teeth. Thanks to implant-supported dentures, it's possible to replace all of your teeth.
