The Advantages of Dental Implants
With proper care and regular oral hygiene, your implants can last a lifetime. The titanium implants form a permanent bond with the bone in your jaw, allowing your implants to function just like natural teeth with healthy gums.
In the long run a properly placed and maintained dental implant can actually help save you money, time and aggravation.
It is much easier to care for a dental implant supported crown, which can be cleaned like a natural tooth.
Because dental implants are easier to brush and keep clean than dentures or bridges, they may reduce your risk of developing gum disease in the future.
The human jaw bone maintains its integrity through proper stimulation from the roots of the teeth. When a tooth is missing, that portion of the jaw bone atrophies and wastes away.
Implants can help preserve the integrity of your mouth and face by supporting gum and jawbone structure, stimulating the jaw bone, preventing it from deteriorating, and help avoid serious bone loss and oral health problems.
The appearance of your smile will be more natural and your new teeth will function just like natural teeth. This not only increases comfort, but it also boosts self-confidence when smiling, speaking, and eating. In fact, if dentures or partials are replaced with dental implant supported teeth, the overall boost in quality of life is even more significant thanks to expanded food options, the elimination of messy adhesives, and improved speech, comfort and appearance.
Traditional replacements, like dental bridges, or removable partial dentures, permanently damage the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth space. Dental implants are independent of the neighbouring teeth and will not damage or affect your natural teeth.
