Rochester Hills dentist explains the benefits and cost of an implant-supported dental crown
Everyone hopes their smiles will last a lifetime. The good news is that even after suffering tooth loss, a beautiful smile is still possible with dental implants and crowns. The team at Dr. Aurelia’s office has taken the time to give patients a quick rundown on dental implants and their benefits.
Whenever there is loss of natural teeth, whether to trauma, injury, or disease, it can have a major impact on a person’s oral health and appearance. Even the loss of a single tooth can impact the ability to bite and chew properly. In addition, without a tooth root, there is the possibility that nearby teeth can shift out of place, wreaking havoc on the smile.
When left untreated, the issues caused by a missing tooth will continue to progress. With a dental implant and crown, you can regain your confidence, your oral health, and feel better about the way you look.
Some of the biggest benefits of implant-supported crowns include:
- Improved appearance. Dental implants stimulate and preserve the jawbone. This helps sustain facial structure and prevent the look of “facial collapse” that can occur without teeth.
- Improved comfort. Implant-supported crowns are as close as you can get to natural teeth. This gives you the comfort of performing daily tasks without fear of your restoration moving or shifting.
- No impact on nearby teeth. Unlike other restorations, when you opt for implant supported crowns there is no alteration or damage to natural teeth.
- Cost Effective. While implants do cost more up front than other restorations, they also last much longer, making them an economical restoration. In addition, they help preserve oral health, which means less money spent on restorative dental care.
