5 Great Reasons to Choose Dental Implants
article by Raha Sepehrara
Smiles are so easily taken for granted. A subtle flex of a few muscles communicates so much to the people around you. But when your teeth are failing, you might not want to smile so brightly. The loss of teeth can also leave you mindful of your eating habits.
The great news is that missing or severely damaged teeth are replaceable. With natural-looking replacements supported by dental implants, you can smile, chew, and speak easily and confidently.
Before you opt for dental implants, you’ll probably want to know more about them —what are they? And why are they the best choice for smile restoration?
Here are five amazing benefits of dental implants.
1. Dental Implants Replace the Tooth’s Natural Root
When you smile, you only ever see half of the tooth. Under your gums, your teeth have roots that lock into the jaw. These roots make biting and chewing easy and stop your teeth from falling out.
When replacing a tooth, we can use dental implants. Small, titanium posts mimic the root, supporting a realistic tooth above the surface. Once placed, your dental implant won’t be visible. It’ll remain below the gum line, working hard to stabilise a life-like crown above.
2. You Can Bite Confidently Again
When you’ve lost teeth, the menu shrinks. Eating becomes a chore —even with dentures. Because dental implants are strong and stable, you can enjoy all your favourite food - steak, jacket potatoes, or even toffee.
But it’s not just biting that becomes easier. Missing teeth can also affect your speech. Replacing lost teeth with ill-fitting dentures will also cause problems in conversation too. Dentures can work loose, often at the worst time. The rigid foundation of dental implants lets you talk with ease too.
3. Your Teeth Will Look Amazing
If your smile has gaps, it can harm your self-esteem. You might not want to show your teeth while smiling. You may become so self-conscious you find it hard to relax.
The replacement teeth used to cap the titanium implants look exactly like the real thing. We’ll take digital scans of your mouth to get the shape and size of the tooth exactly right. We can also colour-match your new crown, so it blends in with your natural teeth.
4. There’s No Great Trick to Dental Implant Care
If you’re worried that getting dental implants means a life-long commitment to their upkeep, think again. Dental implants look and act like your regular teeth, and they can be cleaned and cared for in the same way.
As long as you’re brushing thoroughly twice daily, flossing and using mouthwash, and visiting us often for a checkup, you’ll be able to keep serious dental issues at bay.
5. Dental Implants Are for Life
The last thing you’d want is for your newfound confidence to be temporary. The great news is that the strong titanium implants will stay in place for life. Because they bind to your jaw, there’s no danger that they’ll slip out. The extremely durable materials used won’t break down either.
The replacement teeth supported by your implants will gradually wear down through use. But because they’re just fitted to the implants, we can eventually replace them without needing a surgical procedure. But, if well-cared-for, the replacement teeth themselves will last for many years.
