A healthy smile is one of the first and most important things we notice about a person. Consequently, this often makes missing teeth all the more noticeable. Dental implants are one of the most viable replacements available for your teeth. The benefits of dental implants are numerous: they look and function like normal teeth, allowing you to bite, chew, and speak with complete ease, while also stimulating the growth of jawbone tissue.
Benefitting Your Oral Health
When we lose our teeth, we also lose the regenerative signals that our tooth roots send to the jaw. When these signals stop, bone recession begins. The shape of your face will often change dramatically as your jawbone weakens. Implants are unique in that they replace both the tooth and its root so that the jaw receives restorative signals once more.
As a result, implants are often recommended over restorative options like dental crowns because they can:
- Promote healthy tissue regeneration
- Prevent jawbone atrophy and structural changes in the face
- Protect surrounding teeth from shifting out of alignment
Most patients notice a considerable improvement in their oral health after receiving implants.
Providing Stability and Comfort
Dentures can easily slip while you eat or talk, creating uncomfortable sores, speech impediments, and awkward social interactions. Because implant-supported restorations are securely attached to your jawbone, you can enjoy all your favorite foods and activities without worry of your restoration shifting out of place.
While dental bridges and dentures typically last about 10 years, dental implants are permanently attached to your bone and can last a lifetime with proper care. Implants are made from titanium, a durable and biocompatible material designed to securely bond with your soft and hard tissues. With your implant-supported restoration in place, you can enjoy restored dental function and realistic results.
Easy care makes it much easier to reduce the risk of periodontal disease.
Easy to Clean and Maintain
Dental implants are designed to function just like your natural teeth. Therefore, you can care for them in the same manner. Easy care makes it much easier to reduce the risk of periodontal disease, which is a bacterial infection and inflammatory disease that can lead to gum loss and other conditions such as heart attacks and diabetes.
Be sure to brush your teeth and implant-supported restoration at least twice a day. It is recommended that you floss daily, paying close attention to the base of the restoration. You may want to invest in a specialized water flosser to prevent food and debris from collecting.
Improving Smile Aesthetics
An implant-supported restoration is fashioned from realistic materials intended to match the natural aesthetics of your smile. They are designed to:
- Fit tightly against the gums and nearby teeth
- Blend in with your smile
- Prevent facial sagging
- Improve speech
- Match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth
With your customized dental implant restoration in place, you can once again laugh freely, eat your favorite foods, and take greater confidence in your smile.
