Dental Implants: Are They The Best Solution for Your Missing Teeth?

Home > Dental Implants

Smiling gives others a good first impression of you. However, nobody should have to worry about not enjoying their smile to the fullest. We have options to make anyone happy with their smile, whether being photographed or socializing with friends. While brushing two times a day and flossing can go a long way, sometimes there really is no way to prevent tooth loss due to several factors. While having missing teeth may be embarrassing, there are more serious problems that could arise if it is left untreated. Lucky for you, if you have experienced losing a tooth, or even a few of them, we can replace them with dental implants to restore that beautiful smile.

Dental Implants

What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a synthetic tooth root, which is surgically placed in the jawbone. The root is usually made of titanium which is well suited to pairing with the human bone. The implant serves as a strong foundation to a permanent or removable replacement tooth that would then be fixed to the post. These replacement teeth are made to match and look like your natural teeth.

Advantages of Dental Implants

The foremost advantage of dental implants is that they are versatile. If you are missing one tooth, then one dental implant and one replacement tooth will suffice. On the other hand, if you are missing a lot of teeth in one row, a few strategically located dental implants could support a set of replacement teeth. In line with this, if all your teeth are lost, a number of strategically placed dental implants can support the fixing of a full denture.

As compared to other conventional bridges and dentures, dental implants not only feel more natural but are more stable, making it a lot easier to eat properly or smile with confidence. Unlike bridges and dentures, which rely on their neighboring teeth for support, dental implants will not compromise your healthy natural teeth. Further, dental implants are expected to last a lifetime as compared to bridges, which are expected only to last seven to ten years.

Why Get Dental Implants?

Improved Appearance

Dental implants not only replace your missing teeth, they also preserve your bone structure and prevent further deterioration of your facial structure, thereby improving your appearance. When you lose natural teeth, your body can sense that your jawbone is no longer needed to support teeth and it begins to dissolve away resulting in the rapid deterioration of your face structure. With dental implants, the possibility of facial structure collapse, as well as wrinkles resulting from this, is avoided if not eliminated, giving you that perfect smile with completely natural-looking teeth.

Improved Speech and Easier Eating

Unlike bridges, dental implants are incredibly stable, and as such, your replacement teeth will not slip within your mouth every time you speak, making your words clearer and more understandable.
