If you have a missing or damaged tooth, you have several replacement options, including dentures
, flippers, bridges
, and implants. Dental implants
are one of the most effective tooth replacement options that are considered the standard care for prosthetic replacement of missing and damaged teeth.
are artificial tooth roots placed into the jawbone below your gums with metal posts. The three most common types of dental implants are Endosteal, Subperiosteal, and Zygomatic. With dental implants, you don’t need to be conscious about your smile and cover your mouth. Here are the lifelong benefits of dental implants:
Easy to Care for
You don’t require special flossers or mouthwashes to care for your implants. Flossing and brushing daily will keep them squeaky-clean. Treat your dental implants the way you treat your natural teeth, but don’t forget to see your dental hygienist once every six months.
Improve Your Appearance
Dental Implants match your natural teeth and improve appearance by preserving bone and preventing deterioration of the facial structure. Thus, they are custom-designed and don’t look different from your natural teeth, giving you an insta-ready smile.
Missing teeth can cause a difference in your speech. Tooth replacement options like dentures or overdentures
can slip within the mouth, causing you to mumble. They also affect how you pronounce certain words. With dental implants, you won’t mumble or slur.
Can Last You a Lifetime
Dental implants can last for decades. With proper dental hygiene and maintenance, they can last you a lifetime as well. It doesn’t mean that you won’t be required to see your dentist; you might have to get your crown replaced every 10 to 15 years.
If you have a missing tooth, you probably understand how conscious and embarrassed it can make you feel. With dental implants, you wouldn’t be conscious about smiling with your mouth open and eating in public.
Improved Oral Health
||Dental implants don’t decay, so you don’t have to worry about getting infections and cavities in your implants.
||Unlike bridges, dental implants don’t require altering the nearby teeth—improving overall oral health.
||Dental implants also prevent bone loss by replacing jaw bone stimulation.
Unlike removable dentures, dental implants are embedded directly into your jaw bone—eliminating the inconvenience of removing dentures. Dental implants become a part of you; they feel and look natural—ensuring utmost comfort and security. If you have a misaligned jaw, we may recommend corrective jaw surgery
to perfect the alignment.
Enjoy Your Favorite Foods
Missing teeth don’t let you enjoy food, but that stops with dental implants. Unlike dentures and bridges, chewing food with dental implants doesn’t feel disturbingly uncomfortable and difficult. Implants don’t carry food restrictions that dentures and bridges do. From soft foods to crunchy foods, you can eat everything. Check out our Dental Bridges vs Dentures
