The Major Benefits of Dental Implants

September 28, 2019, Langley Dental Practice

There are several options at your disposal when you want to get your damaged or missing teeth replaced. One such option is dental implants, which stands out from the rest of the options. This is due to the fact that it provides some major benefits that you will not see in other treatments, such as bridges or dentures.

If you are still unsure, here are some of the major benefits of getting dental implants:

-Prevents bone loss
The problem with losing teeth is that you also end up losing the bone mass that exists in your jaw. In order to maintain its mass, your jawbone requires the stimulation it gets when the teeth are connected to it. The only tooth replacement option that can also provide the jaw bone simulation is none other than dental implants and this can help in preventing bone loss.

-Matches your natural teeth
The good thing about dental implants is that you can find them in a wide variety of sizes and shapes. Once you have made up your mind to undergo the dental implants procedure, your dentist will work with you for designing implants that a perfect match to your surrounding teeth and also fit in the gap. No one will be able to tell which your real teeth are and which are implants, except for you and the dentist.

-Restore bite force
As a titanium post is used for replacing the tooth root and anchoring dental implants into your jaw, they enable you to bite with almost the same force as you would with your natural teeth. There is no other tooth replacement option that will be able to restore this much bite force as they sit on top of your gums and are not anchored in place.

-No changes in the shape of your face
Your teeth play a vital role in supporting your face structure. Losing teeth means you lose the support as well and this can change your face shape, thereby making you appear older. On the other hand, with a dental implants procedure , your face will not change shape because they provide the same support as your natural teeth.

-Enable you to speak naturally
Your ability to speak and pronounce words can be affected by some tooth replacement options, such as dentures. Your speech is also altered if you lose your teeth. As dental implants function and feel the same way as your natural teeth, you will have no problem in speaking naturally and easily.

-No cavities
You still need to care for artificial teeth in order to prevent the buildup of bacteria in your mouth and leading to infections. The best part about the material used for building dental implants is that it doesn’t decay. This means you will not have to worry about getting any cavities.

-No embarrassing slippage
If you go for dentures, you will feel conscious when you are speaking, eating in public or laughing because the dentures visibly slip or shift in your mouth. Dental implants will not embarrass you since they are anchored in place.
