Dental Implants the Best Choice for Tooth Replacement

Dental Implants the Best Choice for Tooth Replacement

If you have one or more missing teeth, it can be very challenging. Still there are many people who take it for granted. A missing tooth can affect your life in many ways. You may have to put restrictions on the kind of food you can order at the restaurant. A missing tooth not only hampers your smile but also your confidence.

Here’s a look at some reasons that make dental implants worth it:

Dangers of Missing Teeth

When you lose a tooth you also lose the root located in the jaw. The jaw bone starts deteriorating without a root. Because of the space created by the missing tooth, the remaining teeth begin to shift putting teeth at risk of wear, fracture, and periodontal diseases.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are different from other tooth replacement options as they are a long-term solution which not only replaces the tooth but also the roots. A titanium post is fused in the jawbone and allowed to heal as well as bond with the bone around it. This offers a stable foundation for the new tooth, i.e. your porcelain crown.

What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the only tooth replacement options which are as functional as your natural teeth and look just like your natural teeth. This means you can chew, bite, floss, brush and smile just like you did with your natural teeth. They don’t just look natural but also act as natural teeth.

Advantages of Dental Implants:

  • They are a superior option as far as aesthetics are concerned.
  • They protect the adjacent teeth.
  • They help in building confidence.
  • The implants are more reliable and durable.

What to Expect?

You will first undergo a dental examination depending on which line of treatment will be decided. It may take anywhere around 6 to 9 months for the procedure to go through.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

You can be a good candidate for implants if you have overall good health and enough healthy bone structure for supporting the procedure.
