5 Amazing Facts About Dental Implants

Hearing the news that you need to lose a tooth is devastating, particularly if it’s in a prominent position in your mouth. But aside from the obvious aesthetic concerns about having gaps in your mouth, there are several other problems that emerge when you have missing teeth.

Firstly there’s the risk of tooth decay in your neighbouring teeth. When you’ve got gaps, these can become a breeding ground for plaque. Then there’s the fact that without the presence of a  tooth above, the underlying bone will start to deteriorate. Finally, gaps in your teeth make chewing harder.

Fortunately, there’s a way of replacing your teeth that will address all of these issues: dental implants.

Here are five amazing facts you should know about dental implants.

1. Dental Implants Are Sturdy

A dental implant is made up of a small biocompatible titanium screw that is fixed into your jaw. After a period of a few months a process called osseointegration takes place and the implant will become fused in place.

Because dental implants mimic the function of your tooth’s root, they provide the same level of rigidity that your natural teeth would.

2.  You Can Enjoy Your Favourite Food Again

The sturdiness of your implants will allow you to bite down with confidence and know that whatever you’re eating won’t prove too challenging. There won’t be any wiggling or wobbling as you take a bite. This means nothing is off the menu!

3. Dental Implants Improve Your Oral Health

As mentioned earlier, once a tooth has been extracted or has been lost to decay or trauma, it affects your jaw and neighbouring teeth. Dental implants help by strengthening your jaw and preventing its deterioration.

You’ll also find it easier to clean your teeth, and as such, you’ll be able to prevent potential oral health issues.

4. They Look Amazing

Of course, missing teeth really affect how your mouth looks. Gaps destroy confidence. If your self-esteem has taken a hit through the loss of a tooth, getting a dental implant placed could restore it in no time.

The titanium implant will be capped off with a realistic crown. This will be custom-made to match the appearance of your natural teeth, and will seamlessly match the rest of your smile. You’ll definitely want to show off the results!

5. They Are Long-Lasting

Once they’ve been placed, dental implants could last a lifetime provided they’re well looked after. The crown that sits above may need replacing as it wears, but the implant itself is built to last.

To get the best out of your implants, carry out routine care through twice daily brushing and make sure you visit the dentist for a checkup a couple of times a year.
