As we age, we not only lose the sensitivity in our teeth but also the nerves in our teeth become smaller, meaning we rarely feel any tooth pain.
A popular way teeth drop out is owing to a lack of pain or discomfort that usually warns us to go to the dentist for anything we need fixing.
The options for missing teeth vary in complexity, cost and suitability, so it’s not surprising patients feel overwhelmed by choice.
Here are 5 reasons why dental implants are the best option for you;
Dental implants look the most realistic
For the most natural look, dental implants are an excellent choice.They look exactly like real teeth! Dental implants have superior aesthetic appearances, so when you smile you can be confident they look completely natural. The implants are ideal for replacing teeth in prominent positions in your mouth, the front teeth, for their realistic look.
Dental implants are completely safe
Because of the way implants are fitted, there is no risk at all of your dental implants falling out. The treatment process offers no damage to the adjacent teeth, so there is no compromise to the function of the healthy teeth in your mouth. The procedure can be done under sedation to completely remove any anxiety.
Dental implants are permanent
Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth, unlike dentures that come loose over time and can often fall out at the least convenient times. The implants are screwed into the bone during surgery, making them very stable from the structure they have in your mouth. It takes around 2-3 months for your mouth to heal and for the implant to permanently fuse to the bone. They don’t decay like regular teeth and often perform just as well after 20 years.
The most comfortable
The structure of dental implants is designed to not only keep the teeth permanently fixed in place but also to give the ultimate comfort. It gives people confidence to eat whatever they want without worrying about their dentures falling out. There is no wearing on the gums, unlike dentures. Denture wearers often lack self confidence in talking, smiling and eating certain foods. Having dental implants is one of the best things you can do for your self confidence.
No compromise to oral health
Dental implants give structure to your jaw bone. Missing teeth leave empty spaces in your mouth which leads to the natural deterioration of your jawbone over time. It deteriorates because it loses the firmness of not being used to support the tooth lost.
Implants need cleaning as much as your other teeth to prevent gum disease and poor oral health. They are much easier to take care of compared with dentures which are much harder to keep clean with them being handled a lot more.
