Why Replace Missing Teeth with Dental Implants

Tooth loss is an undesirable experience. It can take away a person’s confidence to face and smile at other people. Even worse, it may affect that person’s speech and eating abilities. Fortunately, there are ways to restore the smile and oral functions of tooth loss sufferers.

reviously, tooth loss can only be fixed by installing dentures, which are removable prosthetic teeth that fill toothless gaps. However, due to their lack of permanence and the way they are attached to the gums, these prosthetic devices cannot provide long term and sufficient teeth restoration solutions. Eventually, dentures will need to be replaced or readjusted; otherwise, they may also cause gum diseases.

One of the most recent teeth replacement methods is dental implants. Unlike dentures, an implant, or a tiny post typically made of titanium, is inserted into the gum and allowed to integrate with the jawbones. It functions very much like natural tooth root, which gives the tooth its strength to munch and bite. An artificial crown is then attached to the implant, and the entire set of implant and crown functions very much like natural tooth.

>Because of its construction, a dental implant is much more permanent than a denture. It can, therefore, fully restore a person’s oral functions. Also, the result is much more natural looking and comfortable than dentures. Unlike dentures, there is very little chance of dental implants falling off, saving wearers from potential embarrassment.
