9 out of 10 patients don’t seem to know why dental implants are a better route than other dental procedures. So, we came up with a list of reasons why dental implants are often a first choice when it comes to restoring missing or damaged teeth.
Similar to your natural teeth
Dental implants are very similar to your natural teeth. They are stable and strong, not to mention, that a dental implant can boost up your self-esteem as no one will notice that isn’t your natural tooth.
Built to last
By choosing dental implants you are looking at a long-term solution. Of course, dental bridges seem to last patients between five to 10 years, depending on the proper hygiene care you do, but nonetheless, at some point in the future they the dental bridge will need replacing. However, with dental implants once in a while you may need an adjustment, but other than that, you don’t have to worry about going through the implantation procedure again.
No more worrying
You no longer have to worry about your removable dentures from falling out when you smile, eat, or laugh. You will feel confident enough to let loose and enjoy yourself and your new teeth.
Protect healthy bone
After your tooth falls out, if you leave that space empty, it can lead to a few different health issues, such as deterioration and loss of some of your jawbone. All because it is no longer supporting the natural tooth, so the jawbone slowly deteriorates. Dental implants will help you preserve the natural bone, helping reduce bone loss.
Keep your teeth in your mouth
Unlike dentures, dental implants are kept in your mouth at all times. Not more worrying about your dentures falling out when maintaining proper oral hygiene, because you can floss and brush your teeth the same way you would take care of your natural teeth
When choosing dental implants, you no longer have to worry about cavities. Cavities cannot occur in a dental implant; however, it is vital that you still see your dentist for a cleaning, so you keep your gums healthy as possible.
Protect your healthy teeth
When placing a tooth-supported bridge in your mouth, it slowly grinds away at the teeth on both sides of your missing tooth; therefore, damaging your healthy teeth, while trying to replace the teeth or tooth that is missing. On the other hand, dental implants, implanted in the jawbone, in the same spot that your tooth root was which won’t damage the teeth beside it.
