If you’re self conscious because you have missing teeth, or you wear dentures which are messy and uncomfortable, then dental implants are the ideal solution for you. A dental implant offers numerous benefits over dentures and other cosmetic dentistry tooth replacement options. Dental implants not only look and function like the natural tooth, but they also replace the tooth without affecting or sacrificing health of the neighboring teeth. Since dental implants replace your tooth’s root, the bone will be much better preserved. They basically integrate with the jawbone, thus helping keep your bone intact and healthy. Here are some of the benefits of dental implants:
Improves your overall appearance
One of the major benefits of dental implants is they preserve bone, which prevents deterioration of your facial structure, thus improving your overall appearance. When you are missing your natural teeth or they get severely compromised, there’s nothing left in your jawbone to stimulate any bone growth. The body senses that your jawbone isn’t necessary anymore and starts dissolving it away, and moving minerals to the other body parts. This deterioration of your jawbone may quickly result in a serious facial collapse. Your lips may fold in, and your lower face may shrivel up creating a witches chin. Some wrinkles may also develop around your mouth creating marionette lines. This will make you look much older than you actually are. With dental implants, appearance of wrinkles caused by facial structure collapse will be totally eliminated.
A long term solution
Dental implants are actually a long term solution. The traditional tooth supported dental bridges will only last 5 to 7 years, but at a certain point, they will need to get replaced. However, though dental implants might need periodic adjustments, they can last for a lifetime when they are properly placed and well cared for.
Restores self esteem and renews your self confidence
With dental implants, you will be able to eat your favorite foods, you will be able to smile and laugh shamelessly which in turn restores your self esteem, self confidence and self worth. And since dental implants feel and look like your natural teeth, you will no longer have anything whatsoever to be embarrassed or ashamed of. They will allow you to smile, laugh and feel great about who you’re and the way you look.
Restores your mouth’s natural state
Dental implants are literally the closest thing possible to your natural teeth. When your entire tooth, including the root, is replaced, the function and feel of the natural teeth is replicated with a strong and stable foundation which allows comfort when speaking and eating.
Protects healthy bone
The empty spaces left in the mouth after you lose teeth may lead to other health issues, like the deterioration and loss of the jawbone. When it isn’t being used to help support the natural tooth, your jawbone will deteriorate, losing its’ strength and firmness. The dental implants are actual the only effective dental restoration option which stimulates and preserves the natural bone, which in turn helps in not only stimulating bone growth but also preventing bone loss.
Enhances the quality of life
With the dental implants, a laugh or/and a smile is much more natural, as well as the tooth function. This results in increased confidence and comfort when eating, smiling or speaking. Unlike with dentures, dental implants will allow you to eat when you want, where you want and what you want. You will even speak much better, feel much better, and look much better. In addition, you will never need to deal with the messy adhesives or even clean cups as is with other tooth replacement practices.
Eliminates health issues
Improving your oral health will also enhance your overall health. Dental implants will help in creating a much healthier mouth thus reducing the risk of having the periodontal disease, which is a bacteria induced chronic infection, and inflammatory disease. Periodontal disease doesn’t resolve on its’ own; if left untreated it may lead to stroke, heart attack, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and various other chronic diseases. The dental implants will instantly improve your mouth’s health and keep such diseases at bay. Moreover, since dental implants imitate the natural teeth, their care is similar to caring for the natural teeth. With a routine maintenance (flossing and brushing), and regular dental check ups with Cosmetic Dentist in Boca Raton, you will have a beautiful smile that will last for a lifetime.
