Missing teeth not only create unsightly gaps in your dental chain, but can also create ongoing, lasting implications for your dental health. When teeth are lost, the integrity of your jawbone and gum health are undermined and due to jawbone shrinkage, other teeth maybe lost later on in life. In Glasgow, dental implants are the only long-term solution for missing teeth that maintains the integrity of your jawbone and therefore your overall oral health. Here at Tiwari Watson Dental Care, dental implants are providing great solutions for lost teeth. As with all procedures, it’s good to understand how dental implants work and the positive impact they can have on your health.
Why will my jawbone deteriorate?
Our jawbone grows around the roots of our teeth, providing strength and stability. The roots of our teeth, in a reciprocal synergy of support, promote the healthy growth of our jawbone and blood vessels. When teeth are lost, the jawbone no longer has the roots to promote growth and therefore starts to lose density and eventually shrinks back.
In Glasgow, dental implants promote jawbone growth
Implants are made from titanium, which is a highly biocompatible metal. Not only is it incredibly strong and non-corrosive, it also promotes the grow of the jawbone. It does this by being non-reactive to the tissues as they grow, providing a stable structure to grow onto and around. The dental implant is then held in place, creating a strong, durable and long-lasting anchor for your crown or denture to be fixed to.
