Human teeth were intended to last a lifetime. However, at times they don’t. Missing teeth replacement is significant not only to our general health but also health of our other teeth. When a tooth is lost, one does not only lose the ability to chew but unreplaced teeth may cause other teeth to be tipped, lost or crowded, causing other problems. In this post, we discuss the benefits of having a dental implant. Take a look.
Next best thing to healthy, natural teeth
Dental implants are not only strong but also stable. A dental implant will restore lost teeth so that they feel, appear, function and fit just like natural teeth. Other alternatives may cause deterioration of the bones. This could in turn interfere with speaking, smiling, eating as well as other everyday life activities.
A dental implant looks and appears just like natural teeth. It becomes permanent since they are intended to fuse with your bone.
Dental implants restore self-esteem and renew self-confidence
Dental implants enable you to eat what you want, where you want, when you want. After the implant, you will be able to laugh as well as smile shamelessly. You will also be free from pain and worry. The procedure has helped many people to regain lost self confidence, self esteem and self worth. Since dental implants feel and appear like natural teeth, you will have nothing to be ashamed of. You will be able to smile, laugh and feel good about whom you are as well as how you look.
Protect healthy bone.
Loosing teeth creates empty spaces in our mouths. This can lead to more health problems like deterioration or even loss of our jawbone. Jawbones are known to deteriorate when they are not being used to support natural teeth. This makes them loose firmness and strength. The only dental restoration option is dental implant. Other than preserving, it also stimulates natural bone. This helps to stimulate the growth of bone and also prevent loss of bones.
Keep your teeth in your mouth – not in a cup.
A dental implant will allow one to keep a tooth where it belongs- in the mouth. One will not worry about his dentures slipping or falling out. With dental implant, you are able to floss, brush and care for the replaced tooth just the same way you would do to your natural tooth in the mouth.
More predictable than options
A dental implant procedure is known for being reliable and also having successful, long term result. It has always been perceived as “more predictable” compared to other alternatives when replacing or repairing missing tooth, including removable appliances, bridgework and also retreating falling root canal therapy.
Improved oral health
Dental implants unlike other teeth-supported bridge don’t need reducing other teeth. Since adjacent teeth aren’t altered to support the implant, more teeth are left intact. This improves long term oral health. Single implants will also allow easy access between teeth, hence improving oral hygiene.
Removable dentures are exactly that; removable. On the other hand, dental implants can get rid of embarrassing inconvenience of having to remove dentures, and also the need of using messy adhesives to hold them in place.
Implant treatment considerably improve facial aesthetics by preventing loss of bone, often through repair and replacement of bone.
Improved psychological health
To have a dental implant is like having new set of real teeth. Your self-image will be greatly enhanced with all comfort of talking, socializing and eating without fear of being embarrassed.
Brighten your smile
Even if only one tooth is missing, long term aesthetic is normally better with implant supported tooth replacement compared to traditional tooth supported bridge. This is specifically important in front of the mouth, where preventing visible bone defect is decisive for natural appearance.
Be comfortable in everyday situations
Implant- supported replacement tooth will not come out easily-not for routine cleaning, not for flossing, not for brushing, not for medical examination or during hospital stay, not for any other reason. Make yourself comfortable while drinking, eating, sleeping as well as being intimate. A dental implant is permanent. Just like a new smile.
Dental implants are durable and can last many years, even a life time with great care.
The bottom line
A dental implant is a replacement tooth roots. Implants allow strong foundation for permanent or removable replacement tooth that are designed to match our natural teeth.
