7 Reasons to get dental implants:
Many people who are missing teeth experience many problems and are often embarrassed to go out to eat with their friends. There are many different reasons that our patients choose dental implants and here are some of the top reasons why:
1. Permanent fixed teeth
Implants are fixed into your mouth, which means that you don’t have to remove them like dentures. Unlike dentures, they are fixed and don’t move around.
2. Best success rates
If you look at all the different types of treatments available in dentistry, implants always top the list for the highest success rates. What’s more, they generally last the longest out of all treatment options that involve replacing missing teeth.
3. They can be used to help secure dentures
If you suffer from loose dentures, you will understand how much it can affect your quality of life. Placing just two implants in the bottom can help secure your loose fitting dentures. It’s a simple solution that will increase your quality of life.
4. They can increase your life expectancy
People who are missing teeth, or have poorly fitting dentures, end up eating less healthy foods, leading to a less nutritious diet,which can reduce life expectancy. Dental implants are a great alternative to missing natural teeth and can restore your bite.
5. They maintain bone
As soon as you have teeth taken out, your jawbone will start shrinking away. If this is left for a long time, your cheeks will start sinking inwards, creating a sunken in look. As soon as dental implants are placed, they maintain bone, preventing the bone from shrinking.
6. They are healthier for your mouth
Compared to other options for replacing missing teeth, implants are the healthiest for your mouth. Bridges often involve the removal of large qualities of tooth structure and dentures can strip your gums away due to support issues along with the increased plaque accumulation associated with them, which causes gum disease.
7. You can eat whatever you like
With dental implants, you can eat whatever you like so all those foods you have been missing, you can enjoy once again.
