The Benefits of Dental Implants

Compared to traditional restorations, such as dental bridges and dentures, implant-supported restorations offer unparalleled security and long-lasting results. Dental implants are the only devices that can stimulate the jawbone after tooth loss, helping to prevent bone recession. As such, this low maintenance option can improve your long-term oral health. The benefits of dental implants also include restored dental function, improved appearance, and increased self-confidence. At Implant Dental in Plattsburgh, NY, Dr. Kurt W. Kline combines the most advanced dental techniques and technology to provide patients with excellent services. 

Improved Oral Health and Lasting Results

Dental implants are surgically inserted into the jawbone and designed to mimic the natural roots of a former tooth. Made from safe and biocompatible materials, these small, yet durable, screw-like posts create a firm foundation for an implant-supported restoration, delivering lasting results.

Dental implants provide the surest solution to replacing missing teeth.

Because dental implants fuse with the jawbone, they stimulate the nerves in your jaw with every bite, preventing bone loss and jawbone recession. This process also improves your long-term oral health. Traditional restorations are supported by remaining teeth or gums and often involve extensive reshaping of healthy teeth. In addition, standard options can slip out of place or trap debris and bacteria, which can lead to periodontal disease and tooth decay.

Dental implants and implant-supported restorations provide superior stability and security.

In addition to restoring your dental health, implants can restore your smile and help you achieve greater confidence in your appearance. At Implant Dental, we use durable and realistic materials that closely blend with the look and feel of your natural teeth.

Unparalleled Security and Comfort

When tooth loss is left untreated or a restoration rests only on your remaining teeth and gums, it can lead to dental pain, a weakened jawbone, and structural changes to your face. 

Dental implants provide the surest solution to replacing missing teeth. Once the implants fuse with your jawbone, an implant-supported restoration, such as a dental crown, bridge, or denture is permanently affixed to the implant. As such, you never have to worry about your device shifting out of place when eating or speaking.

Because dental implants operate similarly to natural teeth, you can also enjoy all of your favorite foods. Healthy, crunchy foods like fruits and vegetables can be reintegrated into your diet, benefiting your overall physical health. 

Variety of Restoration Options

When replacing your missing teeth with dental implants, you have a variety of restorative options to choose from:

  • Dental Crowns: This type of restoration is often chosen for isolated tooth loss. During treatment, Dr. Kline can secure a single dental implant in your jawbone. After an allotted healing period, he can affix a customized, natural-looking crown to the implant.
  • Dental Bridges: For patients with two or more consecutive missing teeth, we can create a customized restoration from a single block of porcelain. A bridge is composed of two dental crowns on either side of a pontic (artificial tooth). The crowns will be permanently secured atop two dental implants.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures: This type of restoration is best for patients missing an entire arch of teeth in their upper and/or lower jaw. With modern technology, we can design a realistic denture that can be supported by just four to six strategically placed implants. Dr. Kline uses the latest technology to identify the most secure location for your implants.

Caring for these restorations is simple. You should follow a routine oral hygiene regimen of brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash.
