Advantages of Dental Implants
Dental Implants Function Much Like Natural Teeth , While there are other tooth replacement options, dental implants have many advantages over other treatments. They are called “implants” because an artificial tooth root is placed, or implanted, in your jawbone. It is then covered by a natural-looking tooth replacement.
Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that incorporate an artificial root, allowing them to function much like natural teeth. There Are Many Benefits To Choosing Implants when deciding between different tooth replacement options.Learn more
Dental Implants act like Natural Teeth
Once your dental implant is placed, you won’t be able to tell the difference between it and your natural teeth. You’ll be able to eat normally, with restored chewing and biting power, and you’ll be able to floss and brush.
Implant-supported bridges and dentures are lifelike in the way they look and function. The more implants that are used to support the restoration, the more natural it will look and feel.
Dental Implants prevent bone loss
A major benefit to dental implants is that they prevent bone loss. As the jawbone requires pressure from chewing in order to maintain its density, it will deteriorate in the absence of a tooth. In fact, in the first year after you lose a tooth, your bone will lose 25% of its volume, and this will continue for as long as the tooth is not replaced with a dental implant .
Regular dentures and bridges can actually worsen bone loss because there is nothing to stimulate the bone. On the other hand, implant-supported dentures and bridges act like natural teeth and provide the pressure necessary to maintain bone density.
Implants keep adjacent teeth stable
The gap from a missing tooth can cause adjacent teeth to crookedly shift towards the gap. This pulls your teeth out of position and can affect your bite, your ability to chew and your appearance. It can cause interference that makes tooth replacement difficult later. A poor bite can also lead to issues with your TMJ (temporomandibular joint) and may result in pain and headaches.
Prevent Premature Ageing
Facial sagging can be an unwanted effect of bone loss resulting from missing teeth. This is where the lower third of the face starts to collapse, gradually closing the distance between the tip of the nose and the chin. Changes can include excess wrinkles around the mouth, thinning lips and a more pointed chin, making the person look a lot older than his or her true age.
