What is a Dental Implant?
If you are currently suffering from missing teeth and it is affecting the confidence in your smile, now is the perfect time to consider a Dental Implant.
A Dental Implant is an artificial tooth that is implanted into the jawbone to replace a missing tooth. The surgery consists of inserting a titanium screw into the bone in the jaw which will support the artificial tooth. This part is called the implant. Having a Dental Implant is a long-term solution for missing teeth that replicates your natural smile.
The Benefits Of Dental Implants
There are many benefits to dental implants such as:
Improved Oral Health
Having a dental implant can hugely improve your oral health. When a tooth is lost, the jawbone in that area can start to deteriorate due to lack of stimulation. Dental implants mimic the stimulation of natural teeth, helping to prevent bone loss and preserve the jaw’s structure.
We understand that missing teeth can make you extremely self-conscious. With a dental implant, you can solve that problem as the implants are designed to look, feel and function like natural teeth.
Dental implants can help to realign teeth that have shifted over time due to missing teeth. Not only can make your teeth look crooked, but it can also affect your bite.
Dental implants are designed to match the natural colour, shape and size of your existing teeth. This means that they can be used to fill in any gaps and spaces giving your teeth an overall more uniform appearance.
Dental implants are made of materials designed to mimic the colour of natural teeth. This means your dental implant can be matched to the colour of your existing teeth to ensure you get that natural smile.
Having missing teeth can take a hit on your confidence. Dental implants can help to restore your smile and give you the confidence to show it off once again.
When you have missing teeth your remaining teeth may shift to fill the gap, leading your bite to become misaligned. This misalignment can cause issues such as jaw pain and difficulty chewing, but can also lead to problems with speech, especially if the missing tooth is from the front of your mouth.
Dental implants are an excellent solution for people with these problems, by restoring your natural bite and improving your ability to pronounce words.
Durability & Longevity
Dental implants are a long-term solution for tooth loss because they are designed to be durable and long-lasting. Made from durable materials such as titanium, they are known for strength and durability and are designed to withstand the forces of biting and chewing and can last for many years.
As the implants are anchored directly into your jawbone, it allows them to integrate with the surrounding bone tissue which provides a stable foundation for your replacement teeth and can help to prevent bone loss, which can lead to further tooth loss.
What also makes them a great long-term solution, is that they require minimal maintenance. Because dental implants are designed to act like natural teeth, they need the same brushing and flossing routine you do with your natural teeth.
With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. While the crowns (the visible part of the implant) may need to be replaced every 10-15 years due to wear and tear, the implant itself can last for decades.
Dental implants are a popular tooth replacement option that can be a cost-effective option in the long run for several reasons. The fact that Dental implants are designed to last for many years means they are considered a permanent solution for tooth loss. With the right care, implants can last a lifetime, which means you won’t keep needing frequent repairs or replacements, therefore saving you money.
They can also help prevent further dental problems such as further tooth loss, gum disease and tooth decay which would be additional dental expenses. White dental implants may have a higher upfront cost compared to other options such as dentures or bridges, but their long-term benefits make them a much more cost-effective option over time.
