Dental Implants are the best available solution for the problem of missing teeth. Made out of titanium, and shaped to replace the root of the missing teeth.
Made out of titanium, and shaped to replace the root of the missing tooth, they offer several advantages over conventional crown, dentures, and bridgework.
So why choose dental implants? Some advantages of implants include the conserving of the adjacent teeth, they offer a longer lifespan, prevent further bone loss and provide excellent aesthetics. Let’s go into these advantages in more detail…
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are the most natural looking of all tooth replacements. The implant itself will not be seen once the gum heals. This is because the implant runs from beneath the surface of the gum to the bone tissue. Implants are designed to fuse with your bone, giving the tooth a natural look and feel.
Dental implants are a more stable replacement for missing teeth. They are made to feel like your own teeth in your mouth, not a foreign body. For this reason, they are a more comfortable option. The secure fit of dental implants means you don’t have to worry about the tooth/teeth moving or slipping in your mouth when talking and eating.
The next benefit is in relation to the adjacent teeth. Dental implants do not rely on adjacent teeth for support as they are stand alone teeth. In the case of a dental bridge or dentures, these both need support which can lead to the weakening of these teeth. Tooth decay can also be a concern as gaps can form between the teeth supporting the denture and the denture itself. Dental implants are just like your regular teeth, so once they are taken care of properly, this won’t be an issue.
Further Bone Loss Prevention
When you lose a tooth, one major impact on your mouth is bone loss due to lack of stimulation. In fact, if the missing tooth isn’t replaced by an implant in the first year after the loss, the bone area will lose up to 25% of its volume. Dental implants not only stop bone loss, they actually encourage the continued growth of bone tissue. This is due to the bone being stimulated by the force of the tooth chewing on food.
Easy to Clean
Dental implants can be cleaned just like your normal teeth. Check out our guidelines on ensuring you are cleaning your teeth correctly. You can buy special brushes for your implants, but if you have a good oral hygiene routine, you shouldn’t need any special tools, or solutions.
If the dental implant is looked after properly, the implant can last a lifetime. This is far superior to other tooth replacement solutions that need to be replaced or remade over time. The lifeline of your tooth really depends on your oral hygiene routine, and how well you look after your teeth.
The last reason to choose dental implants is increased confidence. As we have mentioned before, dental implants are just like your natural teeth. They look and feel natural, and are secure so you don’t have to worry about them slipping. Dental implants will ensure you smile with confidence again.
