The benefits of dental implants

Have you ever had missing teeth? It is quite embarrassing because you can't smile properly, and you become extra shy. Some people deal with missing teeth by using dentures and or bridges. What's truly remarkable, though, is what dental implants can do for you. Sure, it is all about filling in the missing teeth, but dental implants provide far more benefits than only cosmetics. Here are four benefits you will receive from using dental implants: 1 - Improving Overall Oral Health Missing teeth don't only mean that you will look awkward because there are many other risks that you may unknowingly face without them. First, any new tooth that grows will have a higher chance of falling. This is because your bone starts to worsen from loss of stimulation by the teeth's roots. Your face will also begin to become asymmetrical as time goes. With dental implants, chewing will stimulate teeth roots, thus upkeeping your bone. Plus, your life is much easier when you can chew your favourite food properly! Besides, implants will stop other teeth from shifting into the open space. If you leave teeth missing, neighbouring teeth will start moving to occupy the free space, creating gaps. Using the plants will not only solve this problem, but it will keep your teeth correctly aligned and your bite natural. The use of implants also helps reduce the risk of you having pains between jaw joints and muscles, known as TMJ disorder. It will also prevent bruxism (chronic teeth grinding) from occurring. 2 - Boosts your Confidence You would rather smile with a complete set of teeth than otherwise. However, this real benefit is what you get from smiling. When you can smile and laugh, you don't feel held back at expressing your emotions. Smiling comes the ability to show your friends and family how you genuinely feel. This will help boost your self-confidence and self-esteem significantly. Plus, smiling also improves your mood overall. 3 - Keeps Tooth Structure Paying for the price of a tooth bridge isn't the only cost you'll be facing when replacing missing teeth using this method. Bridges require your tooth structure to be removed because of the way it anchors on to your mouth. With dental implants, however, all you need is titanium posts to hold your teeth in place. Titanium is a solid material, capable of maintaining its structure. This means that it can keep restorations by itself, ridding the need to remove teeth structure to anchor the fixture. 4 - Skip Dentures Although dentures are a cheaper route, its benefits disappear in a few years of use. As time goes, the adhesive will deteriorate, and also the utility of the denture. With dental implants, you won't need to worry about replacing or re-lining dentures every few years to keep smiling. If you have dental implants working hand-in-hand with a denture, you can still choose to do so. If you have missing teeth, get dental implants right away! There are many benefits of doing so that you cannot miss out. Don't be afraid to spend that extra bit because it is your body, after all, and you should treat it well!
