What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants ?
The next best thing to real teeth, dental implants are designed to look, feel, and function like your natural teeth so you can be confident in your smile. And, dental implants may actually provide better long-term value than conventional teeth replacement options. Here are some of the top benefits of dental implants :
1. Restore Your Mouth
By replacing your entire tooth, including the root, we can replicate the function of your natural teeth. A dental implant, a strong, stable foundation, allows comfortable biting and chewing. In addition, nothing in your mouth looks or feels artificial. Dental implants will also allow you to speak more clearly.
2. Preserve Your Facial Structures
By preventing the bone resorption or thinning of the jaw that would normally occur with the loss of teeth, your facial structures remain intact. This is particularly important when all of your teeth are missing. The lower one-third of your face may collapse if a dental implant is not placed to preserve your bone. When this happens, wrinkles form around your mouth and your chin re-positions itself closer to your nose. Implants, however, guard against this and can reverse it if it has already occurred.
3. Improve Your Smile
In terms of aesthetics, dental implants are designed to look more natural than a traditional tooth-supported bridge. This is particularly important for your frontal teeth. Preventing a visible bone defect is critical for a beautiful, healthy smile and an improved overall appearance.
“I am not joking when I say my life changed in one single day. I have had no problems with my new implants, and they look completely natural and real. I can’t thank EON Clinics enough for making me a confident person, and I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!”
Donal Scrivner, EON Clinics Patient
4. Don’t Compromise Adjacent Teeth
Traditional tooth-supported bridges require grinding down the teeth on either side of the gap so that the bridge can be cemented onto them. The tooth structure can never be replaced and the long-term health of these teeth is compromised. Partial dentures have clasps that hook onto adjacent teeth, putting pressure on them as the partial rocks back and forth. Eventually, these teeth can loosen and fall out as a result of this constant pressure. Replacing missing teeth with dental implant-supported crowns or bridges does not involve the adjacent natural teeth, so they are not compromised or damaged.
The overall quality of life will improve with replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. With implant-supported replacement teeth, you have a more natural-looking smile, and your teeth function more like natural teeth. You will experience increased comfort and confidence when smiling, speaking, and eating. By replacing dentures and partials with implant-supported teeth, you will be able to eat all types of foods without worrying about messy adhesives.
5. Make Oral Hygiene Easy
It is much easier to care for dental implants, which can be cleaned like a natural tooth. In comparison, a tooth-supported bridge requires the use of a floss threader for proper cleaning. It is also more convenient to clean a full set of implant-supported replacement teeth than a traditional denture.
6. Renew Self-Confidence
Many of the people who now enjoy the benefits of dental implants agree that their self-esteem and self-confidence have been restored. This is due to their improved comfort and appearance, and the improved functionality and health of their mouths.
Because of all these reasons, many people realize that dental implants provide superior long-term lifetime value and can be a fantastic investment in long-term oral health.
