Cosmetic dentures were for long time the only option to replace missing teeth.
However, dental implants are becoming the mainstream treatment option to replace missing teeth.
This exciting procedure is exactly what it sounds like:
Tooth implant is a special screw made of commercially pure titanium to replaces the root of the missing tooth. Dental implants are surgically placed in the jawbone where teeth are missing. Usually, dental implants need few months to fuse to the jawbone and to “integrate”. This provides a strong foundation for a replacement tooth or bridge that matches the natural teeth. The definitive tooth looks and feel like your own teeth.
Although modern cosmetic dentures are a perfectly fine solution to the problem of missing teeth, dental implants offer several key advantages including:
Better function in chewing your food and speech:
Dental implants can allow you to chew your food better, and speak more clearly than with dentures, which can slip and slide.
Many studies that compared dental implant prostheses to full dentures. The results showed dental implants can improve a person’s chewing efficiency, and speaking. Patient’s satisfaction was significantly better with dental implants.
They’re More Aesthetically Appealing.
Dental implants are far more aesthetically pleasing than dentures are. In other words, they look better. Tooth implants look more natural than dentures. This help in boosting your confidence.
Furthermore, dental implants preserve the jawbone from resorbing which can prevent aging changes made to your face from missing teeth.
In addition, teeth surrounding missing tooth space slowly move in the gap, which makes them harder to clean and increases the risk of some oral diseases including gum disease, dental decay and bite and TMJ problems.
Dental Implants can provide same day teeth replacement
This technique allows the fit of a cosmetic fixed bridge to only 4-6 instant placed dental implants in one day.
Life service of dental implant is significantly longer than removable dentures.
Best of all, dental implants last longer than dentures. With proper care, dental implants can last for more than two decades, and won’t need to be replaced. Long-term data also suggests that implants last for a much longer time than conventional dental restoration. Just be sure to take care of them, that is.
Dental implants, which have a success rate of up to 98% according to scientific literature, are the replacement teeth of the future.
