The Benefits of Having Dental Implants
Having missing teeth doesn’t just detract from your appearance, it can also make you more susceptible to gum disease and other oral health conditions. Dental implants have long been considered the optimal solution for tooth replacement, as they are a straightforward way to restore your smile and provide protection against disease. Dental implants closely replicate the appearance of real teeth, have a more than 95% success rate and are designed to last a lifetime. If you’ve been thinking about having dental implants and need a push over the edge, consider the following benefits.
Instantly Restore Your Smile
It doesn’t matter if you have a single gap or multiple, dental implants will provide an instant boost in self confidence by restoring your smile. If you were to leave the gaps as they are, you will be at an elevated risk of infection and periodontal disease. The other great thing about implants is that you can have some control over the width, length and overall appearance. This will all be discussed during your consultation, and we’re here to help you achieve an aesthetically pleasing outcome.
Implants have a realistic appearance, and provided you keep up with your oral hygiene they can last a lifetime. Implants are a long-lasting tooth replacement solution which is well worth exploring.
Supports Bone Growth
Dental implants are designed to replicate your natural teeth, right down to the root. This means your jawbone gets the support and stimulation it needs to stay healthy and support natural bone growth. Without an implant, your jaw may continue to deteriorate, and you may experience changes to your facial structure.
Protection Against Tooth Decay
Because implants are placed directly into your jawbone, they help to support improved oral health outcomes. If you opt for bridges, you may experience sensitivity and tooth decay because the tooth preparation/planning process is more involved and dental bridges are more difficult to clean.
Enjoy Your Favourite Food Once Again
Missing teeth can make it difficult to enjoy your favourite foods, and in some cases you might be limited to soft foods due to the discomfort. Imagine experiencing the crisp crunch of biting into an apple after years of being not able to. With implants you can enjoy harder/crunchier foods without any concern, as it’s just like having your natural teeth back.
The initial cost of dental implants may seem high, but you should remember that this is a lifetime solution and will prove to be more cost-effective than dentures and bridges in the long run. Whilst sometimes crowns need to be replaced (generally after around 15 years), you can expect your implant to last a lifetime.
Improvement in Speech
Missing teeth can make it difficult to talk naturally, and it may also give your voice a “lisp” sound. This can cause people to lose confidence in their speaking ability, but implants will rectify these concerns and restore your normal voice.
