Dental Implants are now often the preferred choice for missing or damaged teeth. Below, we examine some of the reasons why they are the first choice for so many people. But first, let’s look at what implants actually are. They are, in the most basic terms, replacement tooth roots. They provide a solid base for natural-looking replacement teeth to be attached to.
For many years, options for missing and damaged teeth were bridges and dentures, but now we also have the option of dental implants. Here we will look at some of the advantages of dental implants.
- Strong and stable – that’s right, the dental implant is the closest thing to natural, healthy teeth. It looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth.
- Great appearance – they look and feel like your own teeth, and they are designed to fuse with your bone, so they become permanent.
- Eat what you like – you can eat virtually any foods you like, biting and chewing naturally, whereas with dentures you may feel that they will slip or they can feel uncomfortable while chewing.
- Speak with confidence – as dental implants act as natural teeth, your speech will not be impeded. Adjusting to removable dentures, on the other hand, can mean you struggle to pronounce everyday words.
- Retain your natural face shape and smile – a face without teeth can tend to sag or look sad. Dental implants allow you to retain the shape of your face.
- Protect your healthy teeth – the dental implants go in the jawbone, in the spot where your missing tooth root was, without impacting healthy teeth. They also prevent the healthy teeth next to them from shifting, which affects a person’s bite.
- Long term success – implants are very durable and will last many years. With good oral care, they can last a lifetime.
There are many advantages to having dental implants to replace any missing teeth. The loss of one or more teeth can have a considerable impact on your everyday life and affect your self-confidence, but it can also affect your dental health.
Your healthy teeth naturally strengthen your jawbone when you chew food. However, if there are missing teeth, then the jawbone can start to shrink because it is no longer being stimulated. In time, this can lead to facial sagging, which can lead to premature ageing of the skin on your face, particularly if there are a number of teeth missing.
