Importance of Dental Implants
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots and are metal posts or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums. Implants are a safe, well-established treatment. It is not wrong to say that implants, much like natural teeth, will last for as long as you care for them. Implants can also get coating similar to neglected natural teeth. Left untreated, this can lead to gum infection, bleeding, soreness and general discomfort.
Advantages of Dental Implants:-
Appearance: Dental Implant are designed to fuse with the jawbone, they become permanent and look and feel just like your own teeth.
Speech: dental implants allow you to keep your teeth where they belong and not in a cup. And no more worrying that your dentures might slip within the mouth or fall out. Dental implants allow you to speak, smile and cough without the worry that teeth might slip.
Comfort: Dentures may slip when you eat, talk, smile, laugh, kiss, yawn or cough, so that you have to “reposition” them back into the mouth. Dental implants are fixed in place and fuse naturally with your jawbone, meaning your replacement teeth won’t move, click or shift.
Because implants become part of you, they eliminate the discomfort and can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
Protect your healthy teeth. Placing a tooth-supported bridge requires grinding away the teeth on one or both sides of the missing tooth or teeth – thereby damaging healthy teeth to restore those that are missing. The modified healthy teeth are attached to, and support, the bridge. Dental implants go in the jawbone, in the spot where your missing tooth root was, without impacting healthy teeth. They also help prevent healthy, adjacent teeth from shifting as they would if an empty space were left for an extended period of time.
Easier eating: Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants functions like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favourite foods with confidence and without pain. You can bite naturally, eat virtually anything you want, unlike removable dentures that can feel uncomfortable.
Durability. Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.
