Reasons to Choose Dental Implants

Teeth that are similar to natural teeth

Unlike dentures, dental implants are fixed to your jawbone, so they function similarly to natural teeth. They will not fall out or cause chewing or biting problems. For them to remain healthy, you must practice proper oral hygiene just like you would for your natural teeth.

Adjacent teeth need support and stabilization

Having a missing tooth can cause the adjacent teeth to shift towards the gap, causing our teeth to shift out of place. Losing the strength of our teeth affects the effectiveness of our biting and chewing abilities as well as our appearance. We can also experience problems with tooth replacement in the future when teeth move out of position. Poor bites can also lead to temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues, which can be painful and cause headaches.

Protect the teeth and gums against bone loss and gum disease

Without tooth roots or implants, the pressure of chewing can lead to bone loss in the jaw. By removing a tooth, we lose this stimulation, which leads to our bones being reabsorbed into our bodies. The loss of bone continues over time after a tooth is lost during the first year. Moreover, a gap left after losing a tooth can trap food and bacteria, resulting in gum disease.

Achieve a healthy aging process

After tooth loss and jawbone loss, facial sagging may develop. Eventually, the distance between the nose tip and the chin shrinks, causing facial sagging to occur as the lower third of the face collapses. Wrinkles around the mouth are caused by this condition. There is also a thinning of the lips and a pointier chin. The result is premature aging of people’s faces. Dental implants, however, prevent bone loss and facial sagging when extracted teeth are replaced by dental implants.
