Benefits of Implant-Supported Crowns

Are you looking for a more natural-looking, natural-acting, and natural-feeling tooth replacement option? Then, it is time to consult with Dr. Jin Cho, Dr. Sopanis Cho, or Dr. Darlene Vaughan, at Glendale Dental Associates II, located in Indianapolis, IN, about dental implants and how they can help your smile.

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a titanium post screwed into your jawbone at the location of your missing tooth. As the implant is positioned into the jaw, it will start to integrate with the jaw bone and go through the healing process. When healed, the implant is topped with a dental crown that looks like your natural tooth.

Unlike other teeth replacements such as dentures and bridges, implants have a long life span and are very durable with proper care.

Benefits of Implant-Supported Crowns

Dentists Dr. Cho, Dr. Cho, and Dr. Vaughn, Indianapolis, IN, agree that dental implants offer many advantages and benefits.

Dental Implants Act Like Natural Teeth

Most patients do not notice the difference between their regular teeth and their implants. Furthermore, dental implants offer exceptional chewing power allowing you to eat the foods you love.

To care for your dental implants, you will brush and floss them just like your natural teeth.

Dental Implant-Supported Crowns Can Last A Lifetime

Since dental implants are made of titanium, they are biocompatible to the body. In addition, they are custom-fitted to fully integrate with your jawbone, which gives them permanent stability while enabling them to support replacement teeth like crowns. With proper oral care and routine dental visits, your implants can last a lifetime.

Dental Implants Can Prevent Bone Loss

When you have all of your teeth, your jawbone is strengthened and restored by the stimulation of chewing and biting. However, if you have a missing tooth, the bone is not stimulated and gets reabsorbed into the body leading to bone loss. As a result, your jawbone may lose a quarter of its volume in the first year and continue to lose volume in the following years.

Suppose you have considered dentures as a tooth replacement. In that case, it is best to consider that they can accelerate bone loss since they rub against the jaw's bony ridge and fail to prevent healthy stimulation to the jawbone.

Dental implants function like your natural tooth and provide the necessary stimulation to keep your jaw healthy and strong.

Other benefits of implant-supported crowns include:

  • Dental implants prevent adjacent teeth from slipping out of alignment.
  • Dental implants can help you fight gum disease.
  • Dental implants prevent facial sagging and premature aging.

Implant-supported crowns allow you to preserve the health of your smile and last a lifetime. If you are ready to learn more about dental implants, call Glendale Dental Associates II and meet with Dr. Cho, Dr. Cho, or Dr. Vaughan and their office in Indianapolis, IN, at (317) 251-0085.
