What Dental Implants Add To Your Life [BLOG]

Our team at Northwest Dental Group has good news for tooth loss patients who’ve had enough of wearing loose, slippery dentures or living with poor oral function and poor health.

Today’s blog is going to help you understand how dental implants in our Rochester, MN practice can be so valuable to your life!

What Dental Implants Add To Your Life

Along with their number of advantages, dental implants add one thing to your life that sets them apart in the world of modern dentistry.


Yes, replacing missing teeth with dental implants can add years to your life.

That’s because the problems that eventually lead to tooth loss, gum disease the leader among them, poses a serious threat to your total health.

Gum disease is an infection that can enter your bloodstream through your mouth and cause massive devastation to your body’s vital systems. Letting it go unchecked creates a domino effect of gum recession, tooth loss, and jawbone deterioration.

From there, you’re at a significant risk for malnutrition, depression, heart disease, and a number of other health problems.

Dental implants stops that process of deterioration, and as a result, can help you turn your oral health and overall health around for the rest of your life.

The Other Lasting Benefits Of Dental Implants

Dental implants are the best choice for replacing missing teeth for a reason.

That’s because they work differently than other forms of tooth replacement. Dental crowns, bridges, and traditional dentures do fill the empty spaces in your mouth, but only on the surface.

While these options restore oral function and preserve your smile’s appearance, they don’t do anything to stimulate your jawbone, encourage new growth, or strengthen the overall structure of your mouth that keep your natural teeth intact.

Dental implants, however, do all of those things.

Placed inside your jawbone to replace your missing tooth root, a dental implant is a titanium screw that fuses with the bone and provides its lasting stimulation and stability.

Crowns, bridges, and dentures replace your teeth, but they don’t replace or mimic the root, which is essential to the preservation of your jaw, gums, and teeth over the long term.

Nor do they provide the same bite strength that dental implants give you, which allows you to eat anything you want, brush and floss like normal, and give you the confidence, peace of mind, and quality of life you deserve.
