The Benefits of Dental Implants
Prevent Bone Loss
When a tooth goes missing, the underlying bone will begin to atrophy. A dental implant is the only solution available to replace a missing tooth root. It will provide the bone with enough stimulation to prevent the jaw bone from deteriorating. With dental implants, you will not need to worry about your facial features changing or wrinkles forming due to bone loss in the jaw.
A dental restoration that is secured to dental implants, which are firmly implanted into the bone, creates a more comfortable fit. This essentially simulates how natural teeth are held in place. Dental implants are the only teeth replacement solution that mimics the fit of real teeth! They are not bulky in the mouth nor do they take months to get used to like dentures. They do not require metal clasps that attach to remaining health teeth like partial dentures. They do not attached to neighboring teeth causing unnecessary damage to healthy teeth to replace 1-2 teeth.
Easier to speak
Dentures have a bad reputation of slipping around in the mouth. This is notorious for causing slurred speech and can become a great embarrassment. Simply leaving the gaps in between your teeth will make it difficult to make certain sounds. Your best bet to avoid talking funny is to replace your teeth with dental implants. There is zero risk of the restoration slipping around in your mouth and your words will sounds completely normal.
Allow you to eat a variety of foods
Dental implants are rooted firmly into the jaw bone which allows for a greater chewing force. This will allow you to chew and consume a greater variety of food. Missing teeth or teeth replaced with dentures will make it very difficult to chew foods that are not soft. Dentures alone come with many food restrictions including eliminating chewy, tough or crunchy foods from your diet.
Better for your oral health
Dental implants are actually better for your oral health because they do not impact other teeth. This replacement method hold teeth in place the same way natural teeth are, by being anchored in the bone. With fixed dental bridges, the adjacent teeth are grinded down to support the fixture. Then they have to endure the extra pressure. Partial dentures also use healthy, remaining teeth to hold them in place. These otherwise health teeth will become weakened to replace other teeth.
No other tooth replacement solution is as durable as dental implants. Since the implant post will literally become one with the surrounding jaw bone, they will be able to withstand daily wear and tear. While the restoration will need replaced, they will last much longer than traditional bridges and dentures. If cared for properly, implants will last a lifetime.
Have a high success rate
Dental implants have been used for years in the dental field. However, thanks to advances in dentistry, they have only improved. Placing implants is now considered a routine procedure. They yield a 95% success rate and have improved many people lives.
