Have you lost a tooth or teeth due to an injury, accident, trauma to the mouth, or tooth decay? It can cause a lot of pain; it affects your eating habits, smile, and self-confidence. With advancements in technology and medicine in recent times, dental implants are the perfect solution to replace your missing tooth/teeth. Dental implants are designed to look and function like your natural teeth. They are the ideal alternative to bridges and dentures.
At Sapphire Dental Centre, we have done numerous dental implant procedures over the years.
Below-mentioned is five excellent benefits of implants.
It helps prevent bone loss
The bone mass in your jawbone deteriorates when you lose teeth. To maintain its mass, your jawbone needs to be stimulated. Dental implants are the only considered tooth replacement option that helps prevents bone loss.
It looks and feels natural
Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth. The procedure involves replacing the natural root with a metal post implanted in your jawbone, integrating with the bone tissue similar to the natural root. This provides a durable and permanent base that makes you speak and eat comfortably without causing any stress. This dental procedure is an ideal solution to replace missing teeth instead of dentures and bridges. Dental implants come in a range of sizes and shapes. At Sapphire Dental Centre, our professional dentist will design implants to match the color of your surrounding teeth. Only you and your dentist will know that you have implants.
Restores eating and speaking ability
A missing tooth or teeth can make it incredibly hard for an individual to chew food properly or speak clearly. An individual can develop poor eating habits due to this. Dentures and bridges may restore some of this ability, but these treatments have their limitations. With dental implants, you will be able to eat and drink all the food items that you love without worrying about experiencing any discomfort. It will also allow you to speak with confidence.
A permanent solution
Dental implants are reliable and versatile, but most importantly, they are a permanent solution to tooth loss. The way you care for your natural teeth is the same for implants as well. If you maintain a regular oral routine at home and visit your dentist regularly for check-ups, they will last way longer than other tooth-replacement methods. If you have a missing tooth and it significantly affects your life and confidence, dental implants are a long-term solution.
Oral hygiene is much easier
With dental implants, oral hygiene is much easier. The way you look after your natural tooth would be the same for dental implants; you can continue to floss and brush normally. You do not have to worry about removing your false teeth like dentures while cleaning them.
