Melrose Dental Implants: Restore Your Smile

Melrose Dental Implants

Melrose dental implants restore smiles with missing teeth. They are versatile and will work in many different situations. They are also popular in restorative dentistry and cosmetic procedures allowing patients to feel and look great. Here are a few simple ways in which your dentist can improve your smile using dental implants.

What Are Melrose Dental Implants?

The first thing you need to do is understand what dental implants are. These can best be defined as surgically inserted titanium posts that are fixed on your underlying bone. They help increase the stability of the jaw bone that can be rivaled by the roots of your natural teeth. They are often used by patients who have lost one or more teeth and need them replaced. The titanium post usually carries a prosthetic tooth made of tooth-shaped porcelain. There is an abutment that is used to connect the implant to the tooth.

Types of Dental Implants Available

Single-Tooth Implant

Here, the procedure will replace one missing tooth. This implant will stand on its own and will not need the help of the surrounding natural teeth to keep it in place. 

Multiple Tooth Implant

This is one will also stand on its own. Unlike the single one, it uses two implants on either of the sides for restoration that is somewhat bridge-like. This bridge will fit onto the implant and will replace a considerable number of teeth in a row. 

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are great because they use more implants that are spread over the arch to stay in place. With these dentures, you are certain that they will remain permanent in the mouth without having to be removed for an overnight soak.

Benefits of Melrose Dental Implants

Provides Healthy Tension

When there isn’t enough tension created by the roots of the teeth which are pressing against each other, there is a chance that you will suffer bone loss. With these implants, however, this is a thing of the past. These will press on each other and subsequent teeth in a symbiotic and healthy way. 

Maintains Facial Structure

Once you have lost several teeth and have not had them replaced, you will experience premature wrinkling because the facial skin is not being pulled as tightly as it ought to. You can prevent this premature aging by getting Melrose dental implants. They will provide the stability you need to maintain the correct bone mass and allow your facial muscles to remain tight for as long as possible.

Improves Chewing

When you have missing teeth, you have trouble chewing food the number of times that is recommended. In fact, sometimes, you may have an issue eating certain foods. However, with Melrose dental implants and permanent crowns, you will be able to chew your food and enjoy your meals. You will also go back to those foods you may have foregone in the past. You also will not have to worry about issues like slippage and sliding.
