5 Benefits of Dental Implants for Healthy Teeth

Dental implants are an effective way of replacing missing teeth. The implant itself consists of a small titanium screw placed into the jawbone to support bridges, crowns or dentures, depending on how many teeth need replacing. If you are considering this treatment to improve the appearance of your smile here are five benefits of dental implants to help you decide. Why not contribute your own items to this list? If you have benefited from dental implants please let us know what you love about this treatment.

1

Long term solution

Dental implants are one of the most durable and long lasting solutions to replace missing teeth. They provide a stable tooth that will last a lifetime, if looked after properly.

2

Protection

Protection

Not only do dental implants help to retain the natural shape of your face, but they can also protect your jawbone from further deterioration. Without teeth to support, jawbone loss can be exacerbated, so dental implants will help to preserve and stimulate natural bone. As well as protecting the jawbone, implants may also help protect your surrounding teeth as there is no need to grind down healthy adjacent teeth to place a traditional bridge.

3

Food freedom

As dental implants feel, look and function like normal teeth, you will have the freedom to eat and drink whatever you like once implants have been fitted. You will certainly notice the difference after coping with tooth loss as you’ll be able to chew and eat more effectively and comfortably than before.

4

Easy cleaning

The great thing about implants is you clean them just as you would any other tooth, which should keep your dental health routine straightforward. Simply brush twice a day and floss at least once to keep your dental implants, teeth and gums healthy. There are no special cleaning solutions required and unlike traditional bridges, you won’t need to spend time dislodging food particles that have become trapped.

5

Improved confidence and self-esteem

Improved confidence and self-esteem

Many people who have dental implants comment on how much younger they look and feel and how much more confident they feel on being able to smile normally again. The lips, cheek and skin are naturally more taut and firmer when covering teeth so any tooth loss can result in a sagging, sunken appearance.
