Five Key Advantages of Dental Implants
If you’ve experienced broken or missing teeth either through an accident or bad oral hygiene it’s fair to say that not only is it going to prove difficult to eat or speak clearly it can also cause you to lose your self-confidence. As a result you may well wish to do something about it. This being the case, then you might want to opt for dental implants. In Richmond, here at Sheen Dental we’ve been fitting implants for many years and this post will explain 5 key advantages to having implants.
The main difference between other forms of prosthetic teeth such as dentures, crowns and dental implants is that in the majority of cases, as long as good oral hygiene is maintained, implants can last you for a lifetime. When you consider that at best, dentures and crowns will last you 15-20 years, then depending on how late in life you have implants fitted, you may decide that they are the better option.
No maintenance problems
When it comes to maintenance, unlike dentures you don’t have to spend time taking them out and cleaning them. Instead with implants, you treat them as you would your normal teeth, so brushing and flossing two or three times a day is all you need to do. Here at Sheen Dental we know that after care is as important as the actual fitting of the dental implant. In Richmond, our highly skilled team of professionals will show you exactly how you can care for your implants, post surgery. This way you know that you are giving your new teeth every chance of success.
Rapid recovery process
As with any surgical procedure there may well be some post operative pain associated with it, but it generally only lasts for a couple of days and should easily be taken care of just by taking a common-or-garden pain reliever such as a Paracetamol or an Aspirin. Once the implants are in and settled then you shouldn’t feel any pain at all.
Easy to get used to
Unlike dentures which can take some time to get used to, implants act like your normal teeth so once fitted they’re extremely user-friendly and practical.
Bring back your self-confidence
Because implants look and feel so real, it’s hard to notice any type of difference. This means that you can smile with confidence knowing that you’ve got a great set of new teeth that are going to last.
