Thanks to the advancements in dentistry, full mouth implants in Leesburg are gaining popularity as another option for replacing missing teeth. Before full mouth implants, people only chose to use partial or full bridges or dentures to fill in those annoying gaps. Not sure what option is the best choice for you? Consider these benefits to full mouth implants.
Better Success Rate
One of the things we have discovered at Cascades Center for Dental Health is a higher patient success rate. With an implant, the titanium screw gets its strength from being anchored into the jawbone. During the healing process, the gum grows up around the implant giving it additional strength.
As a stronger alternative to bridges and dentures, implants rarely require replacing as long as proper hygiene is practiced. Full mouth implants can last up to 30 years or more.
Preservation of Natural Teeth
There is no risk of the remaining teeth shifting or becoming misaligned with full mouth implants in Leesburg. Full mouth implants also help protect wear and tear of the remaining teeth as they preserve your natural bite.
You also won’t have to worry about trimming your natural teeth to comfortably fit bridges or dentures. Weakening of your natural teeth is less common than with dentures and bridges because your teeth aren’t working overtime in terms of bite pressure.
No Change to Bone Structure
As the implants are anchored into your jawbone and the gum heals around the implant, there is no change to your facial bone structure. Often with dentures and bridges, you notice many structural changes as the jawbone shrinks in height and corners of the cheeks or mouth start to sag.
