The decision to get dental implants may not be an easy one for some people. Some may focus only on the potential downsides. It is a surgical procedure, and that puts some folks off. It can be expensive upfront, although it’s a good investment over time. The complete procedure from the first consultation to the last visit does take time. Compare these perceived drawbacks to the potential of a lifetime of looking and feeling better. Not much of a comparison at all. Need more convincing that dental improvements increase the quality of life? Read on.
1. Eat better
We’ve all suffered from mouth pain of some sort. When it affects our chewing it can be very frustrating. And annoying. When one or more teeth are missing, due to either an accident or tooth decay, our whole diet is thrown off. Dental implants, whether single tooth, multiple teeth, or full jaw, greatly improves our ability to chew the foods we love.
2. Look better
Beauty is on the inside. True, but that inner beauty needs to be brought out and allowed to shine. For many people, having even one missing tooth is an embarrassment and missing multiple teeth makes speech difficult. For others, it prevents them from smiling or speaking in public. Relieving this fear improves self-confidence in our appearance making us feel more attractive. This increased self-confidence has its own rewards from our professional life to our personal relationships.
3. Feel better
Look better, feel better. When we have the improved self-confidence that comes with an improvement to our appearance, we feel good. When we can maintain a healthy diet, not impacted by chewing issues, we feel better too. Dental implants provide people a way to improve the appearance of their smile, their self-esteem, and their overall health.
4. Prevent future dental issues
Dental implants consist of a titanium screw inserted into the jawbone. A crown is then attached to these artificial roots. Undergoing this procedure soon after the loss of a tooth helps prevent the additional loss of both bone and gum tissue. Loss of bone and gum tissue may also lead to further tooth loss.
5. Less care than dentures
Dentures have served their purpose for many years, but they have their drawbacks. They slip and move, cause discomfort, require adjustments (or new sets), and must be removed entirely before cleaning. Dental implants are permanent and are cared for just as you would your natural teeth or fillings.
6. Save money
Unlike dentures, with proper care, including regular dental checkups and cleanings, dental implants will last indefinitely. People don’t think twice about insulating their homes to save on energy costs, so why not invest in a healthy mouth that saves money over time?
7. Stop worrying
Denture and bridge wearers often experience issues with their artificial teeth. From breaks and shifting to discoloration, there are many downsides. Patients who opt for dental implants deal with fewer hassles and enjoy their implants for decades.
