Our team at Comfort Dental Spa receives questions regarding dental implants on a steady basis. Life without teeth can be a lower quality, no question about it. The challenges of basic functions like eating and speaking could really make your life unpleasant. If you go without replacing missing teeth, you can end up giving the wrong impression to people that you interact with on a daily basis. Dr. Aziza Askari, your Farmington Hills dentist, has changed patients’ lives through the form and function of dental implants.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are comprised of titanium posts that are inserted directly into your jaw. This may sound extreme, but these biocompatible root replacements are as close as you can get to real teeth. Your body will accept dental implants as a part of your physiology. This will provide signals to your body to continue sending minerals and nutrients to the jawbone, which will keep your bone density healthy. Dental implants provide a strong attachment point for realistic-looking prosthetic teeth.
What about Dentures?
Traditional dentures might seem a bit more financially reasonable, and maybe more familiar. While they may be a great solution for some, if you want your teeth to most closely mimic nature, dental implants are the way to go. Removable dentures tend to have disadvantages such as affecting speech, chewing satisfaction, sense of taste, and slipping from time to time. Certain foods like apples, steak, and corn on the cob are generally completely out with dentures. Dental implants allow you the freedom to live life just as you did before you lost your teeth. So if you have plenty of jawbone density, you may want to consider this great opportunity in teeth replacement, so talk to Dr. Askari about your options.
