Dental implants in Green Bay are unlike any other prosthesis because they replicate the entire structure of the tooth, including the root. As a result, they offer unmatched benefits and closely mimic your natural teeth. Although you’re excited to enjoy them for yourself, it’s normal to have some concerns, like what they will feel like. There isn’t any reason to fret. Here’s what you can expect when treating your tooth loss with dental implants.
1. Feel Like a Real Tooth
Traditional treatments for missing teeth only replace the portion visible above the gum line. A dental implant recreates the entire tooth. A titanium post is surgically placed into your jawbone to serve as a root. An abutment is placed onto the post to connect your custom-made restoration. It’s normal to have some discomfort after your placement surgery; however, you can manage it using an over-the-counter pain reliever. After your mouth has healed, your dental implant will feel just like your natural tooth.
2. Improved Stability and Comfort
The implant post stimulates new bone growth through a process called osseointegration. As a result, your jaw will fuse to the post to provide a stable foundation for your restoration. Since it doesn’t rely on other teeth, suction, or an adhesive to hold it in place, you’ll benefit from superior comfort. You’ll never need to worry about any irritation because your restoration will stay securely in place.
3. Enhanced Biting Force
Replacing both the root and the crown will restore your biting force. In fact, you can regain as much as 70% of your natural biting force to enjoy many of your favorite foods again. Dental implants eliminate slipping and irritation because you’ll have the support of your jawbone. You can bite and chew without any worry to maintain a healthy, balanced diet; however, it’s best to stick to soft foods until after your mouth has healed to avoid any unnecessary discomfort.
4. Improved Speaking Ability
Whether replacing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or an entire arch, dental implants don’t feel bulky. You won’t need to be concerned about developing a lisp or slurred speech because your replacement teeth will feel real. You can carry on conversations without any hesitation knowing your new smile looks natural and will stay securely in place.
Enjoy a Comfortable, Functional Solution
If traditional treatments for tooth loss didn’t give you the results you wanted, don’t settle for anything less than the best. Dental implants offer over a 95% success rate and can last for decades with the right aftercare, like maintaining your oral hygiene. You’ll invest in a lasting solution that is a nearly perfect replica of your natural smile.
