5 Great Benefits of Dental Implants
If you’re contemplating undergoing surgery for dental implants in Richmond, but haven’t quite made up your mind, then here are 5 great benefits that just might sway your decision.
The first thing you’ll notice when you’re wearing dental implants is that they are the nearest thing to natural looking teeth and therefore aesthetically, they look and feel fantastic. Friends and family will be hard pushed to notice the difference, whereas with many forms of denture it can be quite the opposite.
Doesn’t harm or cause stress to adjacent teeth
One of the benefits of dental implants is that because they are secured firmly into the jaw bone, they support themselves. This means that adjacent healthy teeth don’t have to be ground down or act as supports for bridges or dentures.
If you are looking for a hassle-free way to experience prosthetic teeth, then with dental implants it couldn’t be easier. Because they look, feel, and act just like your normal teeth all you have to do to take care of them is give them a good brushing and flossing several times a day. In contrast, with dentures you have to make sure that they are taken out daily and thoroughly sterilised. You also need to make sure that they’re fixed in place with denture cream or bonding glue which will have to be purchased on a regular basis. With implants you should be able to pretty much eat what you like as the titanium base provides a super-strong platform for the prosthetic tooth. Whereas you may need to be careful with extremely chewy or crunchy foods such as toffees, sweets and apples when wearing dentures. All in all it’s fair to say that dental implants provide a hassle-free experience.
Whether you opt for a dental implant in Richmond or anywhere else in the country, one thing’s for sure…if cared for properly and osseointegration (bone fusion) is successful, then they can last a lifetime. When you compare this to the shelf life of standard dentures which are 10-15 years on average, then it’s easy to see why implants are becoming more and more popular.
Gives them back their self-confidence
Often people with missing teeth are incredibly self-conscious and tend to become introvert. A dental implant will not only restore a natural smile but more importantly will restore confidence levels as the wearer starts to interact with people again.
