How Dental Implants Can Improve Your Life
Dental implants are preferred by most patients and recommended by most dentists because they are more reliable than bridges and removable dentures. There are different types of dental implants, and all involve similar procedures. If you don’t want to bother yourself with the hassle of removable dentures, then you are not alone. Dental implants can save your day!
Dental implants provide more than just a cosmetic solution; they can help change your life. Remember, Oral hygiene doesn’t only affect your mouth, but it affects your overall health.
Below we have compiled a list of seven advantages that come with dental implants.
Implants Reinstate Functionality
Dental implants can restore the functionality of your mouth, making it easy to speak and eat, just as you once did. Implants can also contribute to the stability of your bite and balance your smile (and yes, we consider smiling an essential function of your mouth and teeth).
Help Maintain Health
Missing teeth can have detrimental effects on your health. When you have a gap in your teeth, it can open you up to more bacteria and infections. It can even allow your remaining teeth to start shifting positions, which could change your bite and could then cause some pain as you chew or speak.
Improve Your Smile
A smile is as essential as your bite. Many people don’t acknowledge this fact. When you are not confident in your smile, you become overly conscious about it, and it hinders with how you interact with people. What seems minor to one, can impair another person’s life.
When you smile, you are deemed friendly and approachable. Replace this with ultra-consciousness, and you have lost half a chance of a meaningful communication.
When our brain senses a missing tooth, it automatically redirects mineral support to other areas of our body, resulting in deterioration of our jawbone. As our jawbone wastes away, our mouth begins to change shape; resulting in skin wrinkles and making us look older than we are.
The trouble is, denture and bridges only provide aesthetic benefits. Whereas, implants offer overhaul assistance. They replace not only the crown, but also the root, keeping our jawbone in its natural condition, firmly holding the new tooth in place. This way our facial bone structure doesn’t change, making us look younger.
Dental implants work like natural teeth as they are rooted firmly into your jawbone. You don’t have to remove anything to brush or floss. You can confidently bite without worrying how your mouth will feel afterwards. Also, some patients complain they cannot speak openly and fluently with dentures and bridges, resulting in hampered self-esteem. That is not the issue with dental implants. Your ability to communicate clearly will get even better than ever before.
In short, dental implants are a one-time investment. You don’t need to replace them as you would typically do with dentures. That allows you to be more confident, as now you don’t only have a secure set of teeth, but you also don’t have to spend a considerable time on its maintenance.
