If you need to replace missing teeth dental implants are the most popular and industry standard treatment option within dentistry today. Dental implants offer benefits for your health, wallet, lifestyle, and Smile. No other treatment method of replacing missing teeth compares to them!
Learn more about their benefits below from Phoenix Periodontist, Dr. Ariel Trujillo, and see how dental implants can completely change your life!
Dental Implants Ensure Your Health
If you have lost a tooth and decide to let your tooth socket remain empty, it can be dangerous to your oral health for multiple reasons.
First, without proper stimulation from a tooth, the jawbone in that section of your mouth will start to deteriorate. The blood capillaries that had surrounded your tooth will begin to fade and that area of the jaw will start to receive fewer nutrients. This causes your jaw to become weaker and brittle. This weak jaw bone compromises your other teeth, which potentially can start lead to you losing even more teeth!
Deciding to fill the empty space left by your tooth with a dental implant will stimulate new bone growth and help maintain your jawbone’s strength. Dental implants will assist in preserving and strengthening your jaw, and ensure your other teeth stay healthy.
Your natural teeth will gain additional support from your new dental implant. Your other teeth have a better chance of not becoming compromised and falling out. When you have an empty space in your mouth for a long period of time your natural teeth begin to shift, filling the gaps left behind. They also begin to deteriorate even more from foods that take more work to digest.
With dental implants in place, you can keep your other teeth as they are. They won’t shift to fill in the empty space that otherwise would have been left by your missing teeth. The reason is that dental implants act just like your normal teeth, and it will feel like you haven’t lost a tooth at all!
Dental Implants Save You Money
When a trained periodontist, like Dr., places a dental implant, and they are properly cared for, they are a one-time purchase. They’ll last a lifetime! Other tooth replacement techniques, like dentures, often last about a decade. With dentures, you may eventually need to come back to your dentist to make adjustments and replace them.
When compared to other methods, dental implants are the most durable with a very high success rate! When properly maintained, it’s very unlikely they will ever have to be repaired or replaced.
Feel More Attractive
Compared to other tooth-replacement methods, dental implants look and feel natural, and blend in with your natural teeth. Most people will never have any idea that you have an implant.
Not only do they blend in well with your other teeth, but they also maintain your face and mouth shape as already mentioned. With missing teeth, your cheeks start to sag into the spaces left behind. This causes a shrunken, wrinkled, almost skeletal appearance. This is another reason why you should choose dental implants. They will perfectly fill those empty spaces left by your missing teeth. They help keep your face looking as it should.
Live Life the Way You Should
Finally, dental implants don’t just look natural, but they function like your teeth. It is simple and easy to take care of your new teeth; maintain good oral hygiene habits — brushing and flossing your teeth.
Because the implants are fixed in your mouth permanently, you don’t have to worry when you bite into an apple. You can eat what you want since your new implants aren’t going anywhere. You can completely forget the list of foods you couldn’t enjoy before your implants!
Don’t be surprised if you forget which of your teeth are natural and which ones are implants. Dental implants feel and look so natural that it is effortless to adjust to them. You will be able to smile and speak easily, with no lisp, just as you always did.
