Our teeth form a large part of our sense of self-esteem and confidence, as we talk, smile and laugh with the people around us.
People who have lost teeth through accidents, tooth disease or simply age can feel self-conscious about the gaps in their smiles. But with modern dentistry technology, there’s no need to worry about missing teeth – dental implants can offer you a long-term solution for this issue.
Read on to learn more about dental implants and the benefits this dental technique can hold for you.
Implants: Permanent, Fixed Dental Solution
Dental implants are designed to be permanently fixed into place, offering you a long-term solution to improve your smile.
While bridges may last 5 to 10 years, at some point they will most likely need to be replaced. Dental implants, on the other hand, can last a lifetime when properly placed and cared for over time.
And unlike dentures, which are removable, you don’t ever need to worry about your replacement teeth falling out or being caught without them in place. Once your dental implant has been fitted by an experienced dentist, it’s in for life!
Natural-Looking Tooth Implants
High-quality dental implants will be impossible to differentiate from your own natural teeth. Your dental implant will look, feel and fit just like the natural tooth that it has replaced, and it will function as well as the other teeth around it.
Prevent Further Damage to Your Teeth and Jaw
As well as improving the appearance of your smile, dental implants also work to protect the healthy bone in your jaw.
Having gaps or missing teeth can be dangerous, leading to potential deterioration of your jawbone. Dental implants stimulate natural bone, helping to encourage bone growth and prevent bone loss.
You’ll also be preventing holes from forming, as cavities can’t occur in replacement teeth.
