Advantages of Dental Implants

Posted on 12/29/2017 by Michael Bleyzer, DDS
If you're missing one or more teeth, you've likely thought about ways to replace them. You may not be looking forward to the cleaning, removal, and replacement routines associated with dentures. What you may not know is dental implants are the preferred method of tooth restoration of dentists all over the world, including Dr. Michael Bleyzer in Stony Point, New York. Here are the advantages of dental implants over other restorative methods:


Although you may learn to adapt without one or more teeth, the anatomy your mouth is constantly "searching" to fill the gaps. The remaining teeth begin to shift in an effort to find support from another tooth, and the result is loosened teeth which are at risk for falling out. Without a root structure in place, the jawbone also begins to recede. Decay and gum disease are also more common in those who are missing teeth. Fortunately, dental implants from your Stony Point dentist, Dr. Michael Bleyzer, resolve all of these problems. The post acts as the root, and the crown, when connected by the abutment, provides the support your remaining teeth need to stay firmly in place.


Other dental restorations, like crowns, partial and full dentures, have their limits in terms of longevity. The frequent removal of dentures and partials puts them at risk for breakage, and they must be reshaped by a dentist to accommodate the inevitable changes that your jawbone goes through without teeth to support it. Even with perfect care, crowns often last only a decade before needing replacement because of damage or loosening. However, from the post to the crown, dental implants have a solid structure are designed to last a lifetime with proper care. Maintaining a normal dental hygiene routine and keeping your twice-yearly appointments with your Stony Point dentist Dr. Bleyzer will help make sure your dental implants are intact and working as they should.
