At Prestipino Dental Group, our patients enjoy the benefits of dental implants whether they are replacing a single tooth or whole arches of teeth. Dental implants offer more benefits than removable restorations like dentures or dental bridges. Dr. Vincent Prestipino and Dr. Tassos Sfondouris are passionate about providing high-quality dental solutions to patients in their Bethesda, Maryland dental office. Using dental implants, they offer high rates of success with natural-looking and long-lasting benefits.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Some of the benefits that dental implants provide include:
Aesthetics and Functionality: Dental implants are long-lasting and reliable dental restorations. Implants fill in the gaps left by lost teeth while functioning like natural teeth. Dental implants are capped off with dental crowns which are made of a ceramic that mimics the look of the teeth.
No Dietary Restrictions: Removable restorative options may come with dietary restrictions. With dental implants, the soft tissues in your mouth protect the hardware of the dental implant, which means you can enjoy the foods you love without damaging your dental restoration. Dental implants restore bite functionality and make it easier to chew and speak.
Simple Oral Hygiene Routines: Restorations such as dental bridges require you to brush and floss under and around the bridge hardware. Alternatively, dental implants can be cared for like natural teeth. Brush and floss your implants and remember to schedule regular preventative care appointments to keep them in good condition.
Reduced Bone Loss: If you have one or more missing teeth, your jawbone begins to weaken in areas that lack tooth roots. Bone loss can create an unstable bite, facial sagging, and the risk of further tooth loss. However, dental implants are made of durable titanium posts that replace the tooth at the root. Regaining this tooth structure helps to reverse problems caused by missing or lost teeth.
