Not to mention they are a more attractive and comfortable alternative to bridges and dentures.
Here are some of the other advantages you can expect from dental implants:
Prevent the Loss of Other Teeth
A dental implant permanently replaces a missing tooth. Dental implants stimulate the growth of new bone, which benefits your jawbone and your remaining teeth.
The patient will feel no discomfort at all from having implants in the bone. This is because the titanium screw becomes a part of the bone through the osseointegration process. The bone ends up fusing with the titanium post.
The tooth implant will eventually become part of the jawbone, so there will no discomfort.
(Titanium is a noble material that usually blends well with human bone and is rarely rejected by human tissue.)
Low Risk of Gum Disease
Unlike dental implants, dentures and bridges can be detrimental to oral health and its risks. They make it harder for the patient to remove food and bacteria through brushing and flossing. This may lead to poor oral hygiene which leads to gum diseases such as gingivitis or periodontitis. Dental implants can make brushing and floss so much easier. This is because the implanted teeth feel like natural teeth, so the patient can brush and floss thoroughly.
Improve your Appearance and Confidence
Dental implants’ final result will look and feel like natural teeth. The patient will not have to worry about losing it while eating or speaking since the implant will fuse to the jawbone.
Preservation of Bone Density
Dental implants are suggested as a replacement for the missing tooth to protect the bone. After tooth loss, the bone surrounding the empty tooth socket begins to deteriorate and weaken, causing the jawbone to lose its volume and density. Inserting implants into the jawbone ensures that the bone continues to get the stimulation necessary to preserve its structure.
With dentures and bridges, there is a long list of foods to avoid, including some very healthy ones like nuts, seeds, or vegetables. Dental implants do not bring any of these food restrictions, as they will recover your chewing process.
Patients will not need to change their oral hygiene routine due to the structure of dental implants. Practicing oral hygiene with dental implants is easier!
Choosing dental implants can improve your oral health and overall well-being.
If you have missing teeth, or bridgework that causes pain, this can interfere with your self-confidence and health. Over time, this will impact directly your overall well-being.
