Restore your missing teeth
Dental implants are a great way to replace your missing teeth. They are fixed like bridges (see crowns and bridges) so when you chew, they don’t rock around. Implants can greatly mimic a natural tooth in both function and aesthetics. Replacing a single tooth with an implant also allows you to floss in between teeth unlike that of a bridge.
Dental Implants are also able to be used in a combination of multiple procedures allowing replacement of multiple teeth or being able to fix your denture (see hybrids).
How do they work? Well the dental implant is a titanium root that is placed in the jaw bone and either crowns, bridges or dentures are placed on top of the implant.
There are a lot of benefits when it comes to choosing dental implants over other types of tooth replacement options.
Preserve Your Jawbone Structure
When you lose your natural teeth, your jawbone structure will begin to shrink to help close any gaps that were left behind by the missing roots. This deterioration of the jawbone will then cause your face to age and sink in. Dental implants help fill these gaps using artificial titanium roots, which act mimic natural tooth roots and preserve the structure and appearance of your jawbone.
Increase Your Comfort
Dentures can slip while eating or sleeping, and this can make them uncomfortable and a little embarrassing. However, you won’t need to worry about those issues with dental implants since they are secured right into your jawbone. You will be able to perform your regular everyday tasks with no problems, such as eating, drinking and talking just like you would with your natural teeth.
Have Better Oral Health
Having poorly fitted dentures or bridges will create new areas for plaque to begin to collect, resulting in gum disease or tooth decay for neighbouring teeth. This problem can be reduced and eliminated using dental implants, since like natural teeth, implants give you easy access to the spaces between your teeth, allowing you to clean them properly every day.
Durability that Lasts a Lifetime
As long as you correctly care for your dental implants, they can last a whole lifetime. The initial costs can be higher for dental implants, however, in the long run, it can be more cost-efficient than the replacement costs associated with other options such as dentures or bridges.
Boost Your Confidence Level
By using dental implants, you will be able to preserve the appearance of your smile, and you will also be able to speak and chew without any difficulties and properly take care of your oral hygiene. This long-lasting solution for tooth loss will not only feel the most natural, but it will also help you restore the confidence that you had before you experienced tooth loss.
