Missing a tooth or two not only makes a person look less presentable, but it can also make regular habits quite challenging. It can cause a person to smile, eat, and talk less. Smiling and eating are reduced to avoid embarrassment. While eating would not be the same since tooth loss makes it harder to chew particular foods.
After some time, changes in the bone, and facial structures will also be evident. To avoid all these, it is necessary for edentulous patients to seek the ideal solution for missing teeth. At Advanced Dental Care, we offer a restoration that can provide amazing benefits compared to other options available – Dental Implants!
Reasons to Consider Dental Implants
Prevents Bone Loss
The teeth act as the stimulant for the jawbone that keeps it fully functional. When teeth are lost, the bone will eventually deteriorate, which as mentioned above, could lead to the changes in the bone and facial structures of a person. Restoring lost teeth with implants can prevent this from occurring with the added benefit of strengthening the jaws by promoting its growth – a feat that only dental implants can achieve through osseointegration (the fusion of the implant post and the jawbone).
Preserves the Adjacent Teeth
Compared to other restorative options, prostheses for implants do not rely on the surrounding structures for support. Implant posts are the ones that serve as anchors, so the teeth adjacent on the gaps will remain untouched. As a result, more of the natural teeth structures are kept healthy and strong.
While other dental restorations can last for many years, dental implants are more of a lifetime solution for tooth loss. But this is only possible if the patient observes proper oral health care with the regular attention of a dental professional.
Natural Look and Feel
Titanium which is capable of osseointegration makes dental implants build a strong and stable foundation on the jaw. As a result, patients can expect a more stable appliance that they can use when talking, eating, and smiling without worrying for slips or breaks.
Unlike the traditional solution for tooth loss, dental implants do not need any special creams or solutions for maintenance. Patients can use a soft-bristled toothbrush with a toothpaste that is not too abrasive to preserve the natural appearance of the prosthesis. Flossing is still a must to get rid of any harmful particles that can cause harm to the gums, healthy teeth, and other structures.
What’s more is, dental implants cannot be affected by cavities! However, oral care routine at home and routine visits should still be observed to get the most out of dental implants!
