The answer is yes! And this is also one of the most significant advantages of choosing dental implants for your smile is that they also protect your jawbone and your dental health.
When you lose a tooth, you also lose the root. Believe it or not, your tooth root plays an integral role in keeping your jawbone healthy through the stimulation provided by chewing. Without that stimulation, your bone begins to deteriorate, and it becomes weakened.
Dental implants in Twelve Oaks protect your bone because they are placed directly into it, just like your tooth root. Since tooth implants are made of biocompatible titanium, they naturally integrate with your bone over time and actually become part of your dental anatomy. So, now your implant works just like your root did to keep your jawbone healthy.
There is no other tooth-replacement option that offers the benefits of replacing both your root and your bone. And since dental implants are so reliable and act just like a natural tooth, you can typically rely on them for a lifetime, making them a very cost-effective tooth replacement option.
