From time to time, we all notice imperfections in our appearance. While insecurities are common, flawed teeth don’t have to be! Having a shiny and welcoming smile is an attribute that makes you memorable. If you are one of the many adults who are missing teeth – your struggles are not to be taken lightly. A missing tooth can cause you to miss out on things you once enjoyed, such as eating your favourite foods, attending big social gatherings, or smiling in photos. Thankfully, there’s a solution: dental implants.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a common and permanent way to improve the stability of your mouth. Whether you wear removable dentures or have missing teeth, dental implants can provide you with a long-term, stable, and strong smile. Their impressive quality and durability has made them popular in the field of dentistry. Losing natural teeth can slowly weaken your natural jawbone and your ability to chew. Additionally, it can negatively impact the way your face and smile look. If you’re searching for a smile-saver, dental implants may be your answer.
What Do They Do?
The main goal of dental implants is to replace your teeth with new ones. Unlike dentures and bridges, dental implants do not need to be replaced as they are designed to last a lifetime. Dental implants are typically made of a metal that fuses with your jawbone, otherwise known as titanium. They are bonded to your jawbone and are extremely strong. Implants will function and look just like your natural teeth; however, they will help prevent bone loss in your jaw. Dental implants will also:
Provide a permanent anchor for any replacement teeth
Help maintain bone density
Improve stability of your mouth
Enhance and secure partial/full dentures
Save you bone structure
Why Should You Get Them?
It is common to believe that the best part about dental implants is the aesthetic appeal they will have on your smile. It is true that dental implants are the perfect way to improve your teeth without making any dramatic changes. In fact, we can almost guarantee that no one will be able to notice that you got them. Although replacing missing teeth may seem to be a mere cosmetic procedure, we can assure you that there are many other benefits that come with dental implants. For instance, tooth replacement is a great reason to choose a dental implants procedure, but it isn’t the only one. Did you know that preserving the health of your jawbone can be done by having dental implants? Choosing to leave a gap in your mouth can result in painful and severe oral problems. Each tooth plays a significant role in a patient’s dental health, meaning that it is important to have a full set. Not only can missing teeth make it hard to chew and bite, but it can also harm your jaw and change the look of your face. Your underlying jawbone can diminish due to missing teeth, which will cause adjacent teeth to shift. This results in larger gaps, making it hard to floss and brush that area of your mouth. Failing to clean areas of your mouth can lead to gum disease and additional tooth loss. In order to maintain it’s density and form, the bone structure underneath your gums needs constant stimulation. While there are many other tooth replacement options, such as dentures and bridges, dental implants are the only procedure that offers bone stimulation. Unfortunately, none of the other tooth replacement options, namely bridges and dentures, offer bone stimulation. So, your bone tissue will continue to wear away, distorting your facial structure and smile.
