5 Amazing Facts About Dental Implants
When you’ve got missing teeth, it can affect you so much. Not only will eating become a challenge, but keeping the gap between your teeth clean isn’t easy either. Added to this, losing teeth can lead to a loss of confidence.
There are quite a few options for replacing your teeth including dentures and bridges, but the most effective are dental implants.
How do dental implants differ from other types of restorations? And why should you consider this type of treatment?
Here are some of the amazing benefits of dental implants.
1. Dental Implants Replace Your Tooth’s Root
Typically, dentures and bridges are supported by neighbouring teeth or they rest on your gums. While they may look like your natural teeth and provide reasonable functionality, they’ll never give you quite the same level of reassurance in your bite as a dental implant might.
Dental implants are small titanium screws that fuse with your jaw bone through a process called osseointegration. They are capped with realistic-looking dental crowns and mimic the root of your teeth.
Because of the rigidity of the fusion between bone and implant coupled with the strength of the biocompatible material used, you’ll be able to bite and chew with confidence.
2. Implants Prevent Bone Loss
When you completely lose a tooth, the underlying jaw bone no longer needs to support it. Gradually, the bone will deteriorate. When resorption occurs, your facial structure changes and it may make you look prematurely old.
Dental implants stimulate the bone and prevent its loss.
3. Implant Surgery Is Safe and Has a High Success Rate
Having a major dental procedure such as implants is a big decision and you may have several worries or reservations. The great news is that implant surgery is very safe. We’ve carried out countless implant placements, and the results are always good.
4. Dental Implants May Give You a Confidence Boost
We know it’s easy to lose confidence when you have missing teeth. Smiling isn’t the same anymore, and you may not want to show your gap to the world.
Even if you have a restoration, you may still be conscious about it and have to avoid certain foods because you just haven’t got the confidence to chew with that tooth.
Implants look and feel very close to your natural teeth. That means you can smile and chew with renewed confidence.
5. Dental Implants Can Last a Lifetime
Titanium has all types of uses in industry because of its strength – it’s even used on spaceships. Its durability is one of the main reasons why it’s the perfect choice for use in dental implants.
Not only will your implant not break down when it’s in place, but it could even last a lifetime as long as you look after your oral health.
