Benefits of dental implants
Do you have missing teeth? If you are suffering from tooth loss, you know how difficult it is to go about with your daily activities without a complete smile in place. Your smile looks unhealthy and incomplete if you have missing teeth. Dental implants are an ideal solution for missing teeth providing long lasting permanent false teeth that can give you life-changing benefits. Read some of the benefits below.
There is no easier or better way to say this: a missing tooth makes your smile unattractive. It is like looking at a fence with missing planks, or a bridge with missing pillars. Even a single tooth missing makes your smile look unhealthy and awkward-looking, even if the rest of your teeth look healthy. A dental implant treatment takes care of this aesthetic problem by replacing the natural tooth roots, and providing a firm anchor to which the false tooth can be attached. Replacing the tooth roots also prevents the hollow, sunken appearance which can make you look older, as a result of long-term missing teeth problems. This will be plumped out with the help of the implant treatment.
Prevention of bone deterioration
The healthy structure of the jaw bone is greatly affected when tooth loss is not addressed as soon as possible. The loss of the natural tooth root causes the jaw bone to slowly deteriorate and become thinner (and weaker) with the passage of time. Dental implants help prevent the onset – or the progression – of bone deterioration by replacing the function of the lost natural tooth root. The health and structure of your jaw bone will be preserved, and you will enjoy better oral health with the help of a dental implant treatment.
Speaking with even one tooth missing can be very challenging. It is often difficult to understand what is being said by a person with missing teeth, because pronouncing words take on a different sound especially when the lost teeth are located in the front portion of the mouth. Dental implants make it possible once again for you to speak clearly and in a normal way, since the implants and teeth restorations replace both the form and the function of lost natural teeth.
