Considering the latest technology and advances in dentistry, there is now a better and more permanent alternative than dentures and bridges if you have lost a few or all of their teeth - dental implants.
A dental implant consists of surgically implanting a screw made from titanium into the jawbone so that it can be used as a support for a crown, bridge, or dentures.
Although costlier than dentures, dental implants, however, can last for the rest of your life, provided that the procedure had been carried out successfully and you were able to maintain good oral hygiene habits.
Benefits of Having Dental ImplantsThere are many advantages to opting for dental implants, especially if you are concerned about looking and feeling good.
Unlike dentures that can fall, slip, slide and feel artificial, dental implants appear and feel like your real teeth. Since the screws were designed to eventually fuse with your jawbone they are also permanent.
With dental implants, you don't have to be worried or feel conscious when eating because you wouldn't have difficulty chewing all types of food and you are assured that your teeth will remain in place. You can also smile, talk, and interact with confidence because nobody will think that your teeth are actually implants.
Having dental implants also means that you can carry on with your usual oral care habits. You can brush, floss, and gargle without having to remove your dentures and be embarrassed by doing so. Moreover, you won't be needing messy and inconvenient adhesives anymore just to keep your dentures in place.
Given the above-mentioned benefits of having dental implants, it is evident that its advantages, when taken altogether, far outweigh its expensive cost. If you want to learn more about dental implant procedures including its many advantages, you can call or visit our office today.
