Why Choose Implants?

Why choose implants to replace teeth?

Dental implants are the modern way to permanently replace dentures or teeth lost to decay, disease or trauma.  The result brings a tooth that looks natural; its placement in the gums and its function as just the same with anoriginal tooth that has been replaced. Here are the reasons why dental implants are widely chosen:

  1. Appears and functions like natural teeth

An implant is just like the original tooth you have. Its looks, the placement, and functions are completely natural that the patient who has undergone the procedure will forget that what he or she has on his gum is an implant. Because of its natural look, it is undistinguishable; people who see it will never have any idea that one of your teeth is an implant. Furthermore, eating, speaking, laughing and smiling can be boisterously displayed because you are assured that the implant will never slip or shift from your mouth like what transpires on removable dentures.

  1. The longest-lasting tooth replacements

A dental implant provides a permanent solution to tooth loss because it will become part of your jawbone. Because of this attachment to your jawbone, you are guaranteed of a durable, long-lasting tooth replacement.  Compared to other methods of tooth replacement like removable dentures and bridgework, properly maintained dental implants would last a lifetime.

  1. Able to prevent bone loss

You may not know it, but bone is a living tissue that needs continuous stimulus to rebuild itself and stay healthy. The stimulation of the jawbone comes from the teeth and anytime one tooth is lost, the bone beneath it begins to melt away resulting in the sudden change of your face into a prematurely aged appearance. If left untreated, this will leave your jaw more susceptible to fractures. A dental implant is of great advantage for it has made an end to this process by merging to the jawbone and steadying it. No other tooth replacement method has ever arrived at this double purpose result.

  1. Safe for adjacent teeth

As other tooth replacement methods can weaken adjacent teeth, dental implants cannot harm the health of the adjoining natural teeth for the reason that they are the only stand-alone tooth replacements that don’t bank on support from adjacent natural teeth.  In bridgework, the dental bridge needs support from the natural teeth on either side of a gap left by a missing tooth, which can strain those adjacent teeth and leave them more susceptible to decay. Likewise, in the case of dentures, a partial one gets its support from the adjacent natural teeth which may cause those teeth to loosen for a period.

  1. Easy to care for

Implant teeth are easy to care for because it is no different than caring for your natural teeth where it is brushed and flossed daily. It is not like dentures where there are everyday rituals like applying special creams and adhesives or soaking them in a glass overnight. As the natural teeth supporting bridgework, implants don’t need a filling or a root canal to support adjacent teeth. Implants never decay, but they can give in to gum disease in the absence of good oral hygiene and regular visits to the dental office for professional cleanings and exams.
