The Amazing Advantages of Dental Implants
Dental implants are a popular cosmetic dentistry option which can be used to replace single or multiple missing teeth. They are a permanent fixture which are attached to the jawbone and are used to support replacement teeth.
Other than the obvious cosmetic advantages that come of having dental implants to improve your smile by filling any gaps, there are a number of other advantages which when it comes to this type of treatment.
Better oral health
Some dental treatments, such bridges, involve your dentist interfering with surrounding teeth. Dental implants don’t rely on any of your other teeth which means your healthy teeth are left intact and undisturbed. The implants themselves are not susceptible to issues such as decay like natural teeth and don’t rely on other teeth to support them.
One of the main issues with a number of missing teeth is the impact this can have on speech. Even if you choose to proceed with full or partial dentures, speech can still be an issue as poorly fitting dentures can lead to slurring or mumbling. Due to the secure and long-lasting nature of dental implants, many patients discover that their speech improves.
Convenient and secure
Many people don’t like the idea of dentures due to the maintenance that can be required due to constantly having to remove and re-fix them. Also, they can become poorly fitting over time which means a return trip to the dentist. For this reason, the alternative of dental implants can be an effective and convenient option given you don’t need to worry about taking them in and out.
Prevents bone loss
Bone loss is a common side effect of missing teeth and involves the bone in the jaw shrinking away. Dental implants are designed to fuse to the jaw bone, which stabilises and stimulates the area. This helps maintain the jaw bone and stops it from shrinking. The positive impact that dental implants have on preventing bone loss means that your facial structure remains stable and there is less risk of bone resorption.
High success rate
The success rate of dental implants can vary depending on a number of factors including the number of teeth that need to be replaced, the location of the implant and the level of care you provide following treatment. However, dental implants generally show a very high success rate of up to 98% and can effectively last a lifetime. This makes things easier in the long term as it means less follow up trips to the dentist.
