Dental implants are artificial teeth roots which are normally placed into the jaws to hold bridges or replacement teeth. These are the best options for individuals who have lost teeth or a tooth due to an injury and periodontal disease among other reasons. As the technology improves and becomes cheaper, implants are an increasingly affordable option for people who are missing teeth. The other main reasons why a dental implant an ideal choice for people with damaged or missing teeth include:
Retain Your Natural Smile
A face with some missing teeth can seem sunken, sad and sagging. In fact you might end up looking way older, but with a dental implant your face will retain its natural shape and appear younger with a beautiful smile.
Keep Your Tooth In Place
Dentures can easily slip off when you are talking, laughing, coughing, yawning or eating, so you will always have to reposition it every time it slips off, which can be very uncomfortable. A dental implant is fixed in place & fused naturally into your jaw bone, so you will never have to worry about it moving, shifting or clicking.
Protect Your Healthy Bone
Leaving some empty spaces in the mouth after losing some teeth can result in various additional problems like the loss & deterioration of your jawbone. When a part of your jaw isn’t being used for supporting a natural tooth, it tends to lose its firmness and strength.
Restoring Your Self-Esteem and Renewing Your Self Confidence
Missing teeth affect your beautiful smile and this always ends up affecting your self-esteem. But dental implants can help you regain your self-esteem and confidence especially when in public. A dental implant can improve your overall comfort, function and health.
Convenient Oral Hygiene
Actually its way easier for you to care for the implant supported crown, since it can be cleaned naturally just that the other teeth. Plus cleaning a full set of dental implants is way more convenient than the traditional denture. A tooth that is supported by a bridge also requires flossing too.
