The Benefits of Implants
Are you tired of ill-fitting dentures? Do missing teeth cause you to avoid smiling or speaking in public? There is a dental solution that can free you from issues like these. If you would like a permanent and effective treatment for missing or damaged teeth, read on to learn more about it.
That solution is dental implants. Here are several advantages that have people choosing this dental treatment as the best possible solution to their missing or damaged teeth.
Sense of Freedom
Once your implants are in, they become a permanent part of your mouth. You don’t have to worry about taking them out to clean, like you do with dentures. Properly installed, they are comfortable and you won’t even notice them.
You’ll also be able to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. No need to think about implants slipping or moving around.
Protect Your Facial Bones & Healthy Teeth
Implants can have a larger role to play in your overall oral health. Empty spaces in your mouth due to tooth loss can lead to jawbone deterioration. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement treatment that stimulates bone growth and help prevent bone loss.
They also keep adjacent teeth stable. Gaps left from missing teeth can cause adjacent teeth to shift, pulling them out of position. Moreso, this can cause bite misalignment and even temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues that cause head and neck pains.
When properly cared for, implants can last for many decades. Implants are placed in your jawbone and bond with your natural bone. A crown, or replacement tooth, is then placed on the implant. It’s one of the safest procedures in dental surgery.
With advancements in dental technology and techniques, implants are now a common solution to replacing missing teeth or damaged teeth that are beyond repair.
