Why Patients Love Hewlett NY Dental Implants
Tooth replacement has historically been about replacing missing teeth. This is logical! We need our teeth for a number of reasons, but there's more. Teeth are only one of the structures that provide valuable service. When teeth are lost, so are their roots. Conversely, conventional forms of tooth replacement have neglected the underlying structures; and this is where complaints related to treatments like bridges and dentures arise. Fortunately, we now have a solution!
In recent years, more and more consumers have been hearing about dental implants. What they may not know is that this method of tooth replacement has been in the developmental stages for several decades. In the last 10 to 20 years, the protocol has not only been pretty much perfected, it has also evolved into one of the most versatile restorative treatments to grace modern dentistry. Here are some of the reasons that dental implants are preferred by patients of our offices in Oceanside and Hewlett, NY:
- -Implants lay a firm foundation. Your natural teeth are kept stable in the jawbone by their roots. Without roots, no form of tooth replacement has been able to achieve the stability needed for comfortable chewing. Dental implants stand in for the lost roots, recreating the underlying foundation needed to facilitate chewing.
- -The oral function is reinstated. Teeth enable you to chew, so it may seem that replacing these alone would be sufficient. Not so. As clinical practice has demonstrated, roots are vital structures in the degree of oral function one enjoys. People who wear full dentures can attest to this, and often complain that they cannot chew foods that are crunchy or chewy - at least not without feeling a bit concerned about their "teeth" slipping or falling out.
- -Confidence is restored. Tooth replacement is not necessary solely because we need teeth to chew. We also want to feel good about how we look, how we speak, and how we interact with others. Implant treatment achieves such a high degree of stability that many patients say they feel like their natural teeth have been given back to them.
