Improve your smile and your health with dental implants

Improve your smile and your health with dental implants

It used to be that the only option for those with missing teeth was to get a partial denture. The biggest problem with partials is that they wear on the adjoining teeth. As the damage increases, more teeth end up being lost. Successive partials to fill in the growing gaps get quite costly. Advances in dentistry have made dental implants a viable option when one is missing just one or two teeth.

Dental implants consist of titanium posts that are inserted into the jaw where there is a missing tooth. This implant is then covered with a crown which is crafted to blend in with the natural teeth. The implant does far more than just restore a beautiful smile. It also helps to retain the underlying bone and gum tissue, which recedes when there is a tooth missing.

Since dental implants are fused to the jaw, they feel just like natural teeth. There isn’t any slippage like there often is with a partial denture. That can make partials quite uncomfortable, plus this slippage is the cause of most of the damage to adjacent teeth. Patients with partials often find their speech is affected but with dental implants the speech remains the same.

Patients with partial or full dentures often have issues with maintaining optimal nutrition as they can’t chew with the same efficiency as with natural teeth. This problem is totally eliminated with implants as these do not hinder chewing efficiency at all.

Implants also help to keep patients looking younger in the face. Partials and full dentures affect the face muscles differently than natural teeth. Once teeth are lost, gum tissue shrinks and the underlying bone begins to recede. The facial tissue around the jaw eventually begins to sink in and results in lines and even wrinkles that would not be there if the teeth were still present.
