Why should I receive Dental Implants?
In the past, when someone lost one or more of their teeth, there was no sustainable long-term replacement measure aside from dentures or dental bridges. Since the addition of dental implant technology, there is now a way to replace missing teeth using a natural looking and permanent alternative.
What are dental implants?
A dental implant has two separate parts:
• A titanium tooth root replacement
• A dental crown made from porcelain
The dental implant treatment involves the removal of the defective tooth and the placement of the dental implant followed by the fitting of the crown.
What makes them the best tooth replacement treatment?
Dental implants have some benefits for the patient. including:
• Restoring functionality and speech
• Rejuvenating your oral health
• Stopping adjacent teeth from shifting
• Assisting with bone density
• Long-term durability
Compared to bridges and dentures, dental implants assist in maintaining healthy gums and jaw bone which otherwise can start to shrink in size with time.
Why do you need to replace missing teeth?
The jaw bone, like other bones in the body, requires stimulation to keep it healthy otherwise, the bone feels it is unused and shrinks over time. This can lead to further tooth loss and may lead to periodontal disease if left untreated.
Does the gap in your smile cause you to feel embarrassed?
Sharing your smile has a range of benefits that can impact your overall health and wellbeing.
How smiling can help you?
When it comes to improving your health and well-being, smiling can benefit you in some ways. Research has shown that people who smile and laugh more are less likely to develop heart disease. Smiling is known to help the body to relax, consequently lowering the heart rate.
Smiling has also been proven to reduce stress levels, countering stress hormones with the release of endorphins.
