Increase Your Quality of Life with Dental Implants
Missing teeth can have major effects on your quality of life. You may be self-conscious about the way you look, and your nutrition will be compromised if you can’t chew properly. Your speech may be affected, and the other teeth may shift over to fill the open space, throwing your bite out of whack.
Dental implants can replace absent teeth, whether it’s just a single tooth or an entire mouthful, and address all of the above issues.
Patients have a number of choices when it comes to tooth replacement, but only an implant dentist can use a method that replicates a complete missing tooth, including its root. A dental implant fuses with the jaw, and it stands alone without supporting elements, like crowns, attached to adjoining teeth.
Dental implants offer patients a number of conveniences and advantages that improve their day-to-day routines in addition to their long-term oral health.
Because of its structure, the dental implant is able to preserve surrounding teeth and the underlying bone that supports them. Dental implants prevent the jawbone atrophy that occurs in the absence of the teeth’s roots. This also helps to stabilize the remaining teeth.
Dental implants offer patients a number of conveniences and advantages that improve their day-to-day routines in addition to their long-term oral health. Patients who choose dental implants get to enjoy a diverse diet without the worry that they have to limit their options to things they can chew readily, as denture wearers often do.
Oral hygiene is a breeze with dental implants, which can be maintained just like your natural teeth without the use of any special tools or techniques. Regular brushing—twice a day!—and flossing and semiannual trips to your dentist will keep the implants in good shape and help them reach their maximum lifespan, which can be decades with proper care.
Appearance is also a major concern for patients in need of a tooth replacement, and dental implants perform well in this aspect, too. Often, the implant is indistinguishable from the biological tooth right next to it.
