If you’ve been considering dental implants, then there are a host of reasons why you’ll be glad you are. We’re about to outline five of the most prominent perks. Namely, they’re secure, they function and feel like real teeth, and they can last the rest of your life.
If the process itself sounds a little scary, fear not. Did you know 130,000 dental implants are placed in the UK every year? Here in East London, we’ve had the joy of bringing back thousands of those smiles.
So, it’s something many who have gone before us were able to not only endure but also benefit from. Here are five of the top reasons you’ll be glad you sank your teeth into this process.
1. They’re Secure
This is, by far, one of the best benefits of dental implants. It’s nearly impossible for them to slip out the way dentures do because they’re securely fastened to the jawbone.
There are three components to a dental implant:
- The implant
- The abutment (which attaches to the implant)
- The crown (which looks like a real tooth)
The implant is titanium, zirconium, or ceramic screw that is fastened to the bone. It replaces the root of the missing tooth and the surrounding bone fuses to the implant. This is about as secure as it gets, topped off by a beautiful, white crown.
2. You Can Eat With Confidence
If you’ve ever suffered the embarrassment of a loose denture while eating, then you’ll quickly embrace all the remaining dental implant benefits.
Given its secure fastening to the bone, there’s no bagel or steak strong enough to remove a fused screw from the bone.
3. They Feel Natural
We hate to beat up on dentures so much, but let’s consider this. Dentures are one, large component. Implants, however, are inserted one at a time. You will brush and floss them the way you do natural teeth.
You don’t have to pull them out at night to soak them; you don’t have to apply special creams or adhesives. In the end, they will look, feel, and function like your natural teeth.
4. Say Goodbye to Root Canals
Since implants replace the former root, you’ll never have to have another root canal again, wherever there’s an implant.
That strikes out fillings and other common dental procedures, including the need for whitening treatments.
5. They’re Durable
Knowing an implant fuses to the bone in your jawline, they have a certain level of durability that can’t be beaten.
If you floss and brush as you should with natural teeth, then you might be able to make your beautiful implant and crown last a lifetime.
