Over the past few years there has been tremendous growth in the number of people turning to dental implants to replace missing teeth. In this article we look at the reasons for this.
Next best thing to natural teeth
Dental implants provide the closest possible replacement, currently available within the dental industry, to your natural teeth. As the field develops and evolves new treatments are introduced to help combat many of the problem’s patients face when trying to maintain their natural smile.
Long lasting and hard wearing!
Dental implants are strong and stable and if cared for properly should last for at least 10 years. Other restorations if looked after properly should last for 5-10 years, however after time they will need to be replaced and so overtime this may mean that they can work out more expensive than the initial outlay on a dental implant.
Enjoy life with no need to worry about your teeth!
Other options such as bridges or dentures can interfere with eating, smiling, speaking and other activities but with implants you do not need to worry. Once in place they should be indistinguishable from your natural teeth. They will function in the same way as your natural teeth so there is no need to worry about struggling to pronounce everyday words.
Retain your natural teeth
Bridges require that the teeth on either side of the missing tooth are prepared and crowns put on them. This means damaging healthy teeth. Dental implants are totally self-supporting and this means that there will be no effect on the teeth on either side of the gap. Dental implants will also help to prevent the remaining teeth from moving or shifting into the gap caused by the missing tooth which in the long term can lead to complications with your bite.
Feel full of confidence and ready to take on the world!
Dental implants can give you your confidence back. There will no longer be any need to worry about missing teeth or worry about moving dentures. You will be able to join in the fun, with dental implants you will be able to get on with life and not let your teeth rule your decisions.
Eat a full and varied diet
You will no longer need to worry about the food you eat. With dental implants you will be able to eat a full and varied diet. You will not need to worry about the menu when invited to a friend’s for dinner or when you are out celebrating a special occasion, you can have your pick of the dishes.
Protect your healthy bone
When teeth are extracted there is a risk of loss of bone or deterioration of your jawbone. When not being used your jawbone loses its strength and firmness. Dental implants are the only restoration that help to preserve and stimulate bone growth, helping to keep your jaw in tip top condition for many years to come.
High success rate
Dental implants have be tried, tested and adapted over many years and can now show a long track record of being reliable and providing long term successful outcomes. Dental implants can often give more guaranteed results than bridgework, removable appliances or retreatment of root canals.
