Living with missing teeth can have a serious impact on the quality of your life. No one likes having to think about what impact their smile has on other people, especially if you feel the gaps in your teeth look ugly. Your smile plays such a big part in your self-confidence it’s no wonder we get asked constantly about what dental solutions are available to deliver a beautiful smile and confident bite. Dentures offer a solution but more and more patients want a more stable and permanent solution for their missing or loose teeth. Dental implants provide the best option for many patients and we’ve compiled a top 10 list of reasons why.
Reduce Bone Loss
Missing teeth can lead to losing bone mass in your jaw. When your teeth connect to the jawbone, the bone is stimulated to prevent bone loss. Dental implants can prevent that bone loss, and currently they’re the only and best option for this.
Dental implants are anchored into your jaw, which means that you can bite with the same force as with natural teeth. This anchorage keeps everything secure, allowing you to eat everything from apples to steaks, secure in the knowledge you’ll have no mishaps.
A dental implant can be any shape or size and colour to fit the look of your surrounding teeth. This means that no one but you will know that it’s not one of your natural teeth.
Missing teeth can change the way you talk as your tongue moves differently due to the gaps. Dental implants feel and function like your original teeth, so your speech is unaffected.
Your teeth play a part in the overall structure of your face. When you lose teeth, the shape of your face changes and you lose the support of that structure. Dental implants provide structural support and stop your face from changing shape.
You need to look after your dental implants as you would your natural teeth, but, due to the hard-wearing material they’re made from, they will never decay.
Dentures sometimes slip or move unexpectedly when you eat or speak because they’re not anchored into the mouth. Dental implants are screwed into the jaw bone, so they’re totally secure and stable at all times so you never have to worry while you eat, smile, speak, or laugh. Peace of mind plays a big part in improving your overall confidence.
Gaps in your teeth often lead to movement in your remaining teeth that causes misalignment throughout your mouth. With a dental implant, your teeth remain supported, and your smile remains even.
Easy To Look After
There are no special products necessary to keep your implants clean and looking beautiful. You brush and floss in the same way that you do your natural teeth to keep them looking good.
A Great Solution
Dental implants are designed to be a permanent solution for your teeth and smile. Eventually they may need repairs or replacing but you can have temporary teeth while this is done so you’ll never need to have missing teeth again.
