Try Dental Implants For A Healthy Jawbone [BLOG]

Meet Dr. James Dores at Dores Dental in East Longmeadow, MA

Having a less than complete smile is embarassing enough, especially given the social demands that typically come up around this time of year. But that is not the worst of it when you are living with the aftermath of adult tooth loss. You see, missing any number of teeth can ravage your jawbone. That’s what we’re going to talk about today. So, keep reading and then call Dr. Dores today at 413-241-3995 and request your initial consultation appointment for dental implants in East Longmeadow, MA. Not only will this help keep your jawbone healthy, it will restore your smile, boosting your chewing power and confidence in the process.

How Your Jawbone Functions

Here’s the deal: your teeth each contain roots that go deep down into your jaw. This is what anchors your teeth in proper position. Whenever you chew, there are certain vibrations that reach that the bone tissue and stimulate it. This essentially keeps your jawbone strong and healthy. 

The bad news is that if you’ve lost a tooth, you will have also lost some of that important stimulation. The bone tissue where the tooth’s roots used to be starts to degrade and disappear. The longer you go without that stimulation from the tooth, the more bone loss you experience. Eventually, this can weaken your jawbone and make it unhealthy. 

The good news is that through a restorative dentistry treatment, like a dental implants procedure, Dr. Dores can get your smile back on track fast. He can start by placing an implant in the jawbone. Then you simply wait a while the bone tissue there grows around the implant and secures it in place. Then you will get a replacement tooth crown connected to that implant. After that, you will be good to go. And as you chew, that same old vibration travels down the implant and stimulates the bone tissue like normal. This helps your jawbone stay strong and will prevent bone loss

What Dental Implants Can Do

Modern dental implants are far better than the options a patient would have had in earlier eras of dentistry. In fact, keeping your jawbone healthy is just one of the many benefits of dental implants. In addition to that, you can enjoy more confidence on account of your more youthful looks. Plus, you can actually enjoy healthy fiber-rich meals again. And, if you’ve been wearing conventional dentures, you won’t have to worry about any more slipping and sliding at the worst possible moments.
