Dentures are not the ideal solution to missing teeth. Initially, they may be cheaper than dental implants; however, they will become more costly in the long-run. Over time our gums shrink, and new dentures have to be made to fit properly. Dental implants are more natural-looking and are more comfortable than dentures. The implants never have to be changed out and replaced because they are permanently anchored into the jawbone. They provide a better ability for chewing, and they create a natural smile.
Dental implants have proven to be very durable and strong. They will last for many years. Dental implants also prevent bone loss. Patients are able to have a better quality of life with implants because they help them be able to eat the foods that they are accustomed to, thus preventing malnutrition from occurring due to being incapable of eating foods that require chewing. On a psycho-social level, implants help people feel more confident about their appearance.
Here are a number of reasons why people should consider getting dental implants.
- The implants are a solid component without loose parts. Thus, the patient does not have to worry about loss or damage to multiple components.
- Once the implants are in place, no further adjustments are needed.
- In most cases, these implants are there for life.
- The jawbone will shrink without the root structure of a natural tooth being present. This creates a gaunt, sunken-in look on the face which makes the person appear to look older.
You are probably wondering how dental implants work.
The teeth attached to the implants appear to be very natural looking which often restores and enhances a patient’s smile. Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth which are usually made out of titanium. They are surgically placed in the upper or lower jawbone by a Periodontist.
Once a person starts losing their teeth, it is best to have implants inserted as soon as possible. The longer the person waits, there is the greater chance for further bone loss and root decay. Don’t wait any longer to take advantage of the opportunity for a perfectly fitting dental implant that will look as good as or even better than your original teeth.
