Why Dental Implants are the Superior Tooth Replacement Option

Finding a suitable tooth replacement can be intimidating for some when you lose a tooth. There are several options available, so how do you know which one is right for you? Patients in Middletown, Indiana, can visit Dr. Jonathan Titus and the friendly team at Titus Dentistry to discuss tooth replacement options. Dr. Titus offers several options, including affordable dental implants. Dental implants hold several advantages over other tooth replacement options due to their ability to mimic the function of a tooth’s root in the jawbone. Let us look at some of these benefits now.

Keep Your Jawbone Strong and Intact

When you lose a tooth, your jawbone will lose strength and density over time. This occurs because the roots of the tooth that you lost are no longer embedded in the jawbone. Many people do not realize the role the tooth’s root plays in the long-term health of the jawbone. The tooth’s root helps keep the jawbone healthy and regenerative. When the root is lost, the jawbone can begin to lose density and start to withdraw and be re-absorbed by the body, giving your face a sunken look. A dental implant mimics the role of a healthy tooth root, keeping your jaw strong and intact because it is surgically inserted into the jawbone. Other tooth replacement options cannot replicate this critical function because they are not surgically inserted into the jaw.

Easy Oral Hygiene

Practicing good oral hygiene is easier with dental implants than with other tooth replacement options such as bridges or dentures. You will treat your dental implant like a normal, natural tooth when you receive it. Brush, floss, and rinse as usual. With a dental bridge, you may need a floss threader for the most efficient cleaning ability.  Dentures can require a multi-step cleaning process after removing them from your mouth.
