When determining how you want to restore your smile and replace your missing teeth, we know you have options. At Transcendent Smiles, we want you to feel good about the way you look and will go above and beyond to produce results that are far beyond your expectations. This is why dental implants in Severna Park are proven to be one of the most effective ways to repair your smile. With an abundance of benefits surrounding these unique restorations, our team is pleased to provide further explanation as to what you will receive that no other tooth replacement solution can offer.
Unlike dentures that can accidentally slip or fall out, dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone, creating greater stability and functionality, especially when eating, speaking, or chewing. The last thing you want to experience is a dental crisis during a dinner date or a work-related lunch meeting. By opting for a more permanent tooth replacement solution, your teeth will function just like before, giving you greater peace of mind along the way.
Dental implants are designed to restore your natural tooth structure from the root up. Since the implants must fuse to the bone and surrounding tissue in order to remain in place, this creates stimulation for your jawbone, which prevents deterioration and weakening over the years. Dentures or a fixed bridge only sit on top of the gums, never providing your jaw with the stimulation it needs to remain strong, whereas dental implants do.
Your dentist in Severna Park knows you want a smile that looks and feels completely natural. Fortunately, your custom restoration, whether it is a crown, implant bridge, or implant-retained denture will be matched to your natural tooth color, size, and shape, creating a seamless and blended smile aesthetic. Apart from its appearance, your replacement teeth will feel just like your regular teeth, so there are no awkward or bulky additions to your smile.
If the idea of having your prosthetic replaced or relined every few years sounds unappealing, you’re in luck. With dental implants, the actual post can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance. While your restoration will likely need replacing along the way due to normal daily wear and tear, the post itself lives beneath the gum line and is not exposed to the elements like your restoration. The fact that you can potentially go your entire life without needing a replacement post is enough for most people to justify the costly upfront price tag because of its cost-effectiveness in the long run.
One of the great aspects of dental implants is that they require no special tools or products to keep them clean. Since they act just like regular teeth, all you need is a toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss, and mouthwash to ensure your implants remain healthy. Of course, it is necessary to maintain a good oral hygiene routine, limit (or avoid) hard, crunchy foods to prevent possible damage, quit smoking, and be mindful of your overall diet, as the foods you eat can have a negative impact on your natural teeth that can, in turn, affect your dental implants.
