Despite breakthroughs with dental care, many still suffer from tooth loss, tooth decay and even injury. Treatment options include dentures and bridges for people with missing teeth. Luckily, dental implants are an alternative solution and a key discovery, as they act as replacement for tooth roots. They serve a crucial role by providing a robust foundation for removable or permanent (fixed) teeth that’s made to match the patient’s natural teeth. Dental implants are also important due to the fact that they provide many benefits to a patient, including:
Improvement of speech
With the possibility of being poor fitting, dentures can cause teeth to slip. Consequently, this leads to mumbling or even slurring, such that dentures can be a hindrance to speech. Fortunately, dental implants make it possible to speak without any worries of teeth slipping.
Improvement of appearance and self-esteem
Dental implants are praised for feeling and looking like natural teeth. They are designed to fuse with bone and will eventually be a comfortable fit to your mouth. Dental implants can help to restore your confidence and boost self-esteem by helping you to achieve a natural smile once again.
Ease of eating
Dental implants are also made to function like natural teeth. With implants firmly fixed to your jaw, they provide the strength of natural teeth, allowing for an easier chew of food than dentures. You are still able to enjoy your favourite foods painlessly with confidence.
Likewise, by fusing with bone, dental implants can help you to avoid all the discomforts one would receive from the usual removable dentures.
Since dental implants are not removable, this prevent inconveniences usually associated with removing dentures every once in a while or using adhesives to keep them in place.
Better oral health
Dental implants eliminate the need for adjacent teeth preparation unlike conventional teeth replacement options using fixed bridges or removable dentures. Since it is not necessary to alter surrounding teeth, natural teeth are preserved, which helps to maintain oral healh in the long run. Furthermore, there is an ease of access between teeth with individual implants, allowing for better oral hygiene.
Dental implants are also comparable or even superior to other forms of teeth replacement in terms of its durability. Given the proper care, dental implants can even last a lifetime.
