Why Choose Dental Implants

Why Choose Dental Implants

Many patients wonder why dentists always advise implants over other replacement options. Here, we have laid down the top reasons dental implants are the best for replacing missing teeth.

1. Similar to natural teeth:

Natural teeth have roots that keep them fixed to the jawbone. Similarly, implants form an attachment (slightly different from teeth’ roots) with the bone in your jaw. Dental implants are made of titanium. This metal is biocompatible and can fuse or integrate with the bone. After an implant is inserted in the jaw, it will become solidly fused to the bone over several months. Dental implants are the most similar to natural teeth of all the current replacement options.

2. The longest-lasting tooth replacements:

Because dental implants become part of your jawbone, they provide the longest-lasting solution to missing teeth. Whereas other methods of tooth replacement (including removable dentures and dental bridges) usually need to be replaced or remade more often.

3. Able to preserve bone:

After a tooth is lost or extracted, bone loss is seen in the surrounding area. Bone can rebuild and stay healthy when it receives constant stimulation. In the case of the jawbone, this stimulation comes from the teeth. Once a tooth is lost or extracted, the bone around and below it begins to resorb. When multiple teeth are lost, and bone loss happens, the face can get a prematurely aged appearance. Dental implants halt this process by integrating into the jawbone. No other tooth replacement technique offers this advantage.

4. Prevents discomfort related to removable dentures:

Instability, hooks, deterioration of neighbouring natural teeth, painful chewing, and disrupted speech are some of the difficulties faced when using removable dentures.

A complete upper removable denture covers the palate or the roof of the mouth. This is a little comfortable and makes it difficult to taste food. These problems can be avoided with implant-supported prostheses.

5. Prevents damage to neighbouring healthy teeth:

Dental implants do not affect the health of adjacent natural teeth, which is not the case with other tooth-replacement methods. With the dental bridge, for example, the natural teeth on either side of the gap need to be trimmed (cut). A partial denture relies on adjacent natural teeth for support and may cause those teeth to loosen over time. Dental implants are fused to the bone, so they don’t require any support from the adjacent teeth.

6. Easy to maintain:

Caring for implant teeth is usually not significantly different than caring for your natural teeth. You must brush them and floss them daily. But you’ll never have to apply special creams and adhesives or soak them in a glass overnight, as you would with dentures.

They’ll also never need a filling or a root canal, as the natural teeth supporting a dental bridge might. Implants never decay. However, they can be weakened by gum diseases.

Good oral hygiene and regular visits to the dental office for professional cleanings and check-ups are the best way to prevent gum disease and ensure your dental implants last a lifetime, as they’re designed to do.
