If you are in a position where you are needing to replace a missing tooth, you may be wondering why dental implants are recommended by more and more dentists, and why more and more patients seem to prefer them. The reason why this popularity is the case? – dental implants have an extremely high success rate, and are the best way to replace missing teeth! With a dental implant, the jaw bone is aided in being restored in the area where the tooth has been lost, removed, or extracted. Under other conditions, the jaw bone will deteriorate, but dental implants – through a process called osseointegration – help to preserve the jaw bone. Need even more reasons why dental implants are the preferred solution for missing teeth?
Appearance: With dental implants, your mouth will look (and feel!) perfectly natural! This can go a long way toward keeping your comfortable in your own skin.
Speech: With missing teeth, you can deal with speech problems; with dental implants, these speech problems go away.
Eating: You will be under no restrictions on what you can and cannot eat when you have a dental implant – making it far easier for you to continue with your normal lifestyle, and to not find yourself heavily affected by the dental implant you have received.
Dental health: While dental bridges can be a great option if dental implants are not right for you, a dental bridge can require a reduction of surrounding teeth in order to be placed. Dental implants, on the other hand, are far less invasive, leaving your remaining healthy teeth alone and improving long-term oral health as a result.
Convenience: A dental implant is in your mouth to stay! This is far better than any option that would require nightly removal or special care and cleaning.
Permanency: If you take good care of your dental implants, they can remain in your mouth for a lifetime!
