How We Can Use Implantology to Improve Your Oral Health
Posted on 11/15/2018 by Doctor Haigney
No one plans to struggle with their oral health. They want to do the right thing for their teeth and gums. Despite this, things happen.
Statistics show that almost everyone will lose at least one tooth during their adult lifetime. Fortunately, there are solutions to this problem. Implantology is one of those solutions and it does many things to improve oral health.
Supporting Other Teeth
When you are missing a tooth or teeth, the remaining teeth lack some of the support they need. Missing teeth allows other teeth to move around. It can lead to bone loss and that can lead to losing more teeth. Dental implants help resolve this issue. The other option many turn to when they are missing teeth is a bridge or dentures. While these are effective, they often require work done to the surrounding teeth to support the bridge.
Other Ways Implantology Helps
One of the biggest downsides that people talk about with dentures and bridges is that they have to adjust the way they do things. They have to avoid eating certain foods. While it is possible to do this, it could mean not getting the nutrition needed for good oral health. Dentures and bridges also require different types of care. Over time they can damage the gums.
Implants are like natural teeth. You care for them in the same way and they function like natural teeth. If you follow good oral hygiene habits, you will maintain good oral health. If the reason for the implants is because you did not have good habits in the past, the implants give you a chance to change that and help the rest of your natural teeth.
When you combine the physical benefits of implants and the emotional benefits that you get from having a great smile, it is easy to see how Implantology helps your oral health.
