The most rewarding part of my day is showing a patient the result of their new smile when I cement their crown or bridge. When I see a patient with a missing tooth, they are often embarrassed and confused about their options.
Most patients want an esthetic smile with all their teeth intact. A dental trauma shouldn’t hinder your smile. Here, we will discuss how dental implants will recharge your smile.
WHAT EXACTLY IS A DENTAL IMPLANT?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth-root that fuses to the jaw bone and secures a tooth or bridge. These implants provide a strong foundation for fixed or removable teeth that have been made to match patient’s natural teeth. Dental implants are required for people who have lost a tooth from a dental cavity, periodontal disease, dental injury etc to restore their function and smile. To know more, click here.
ADVANTAGES OF DENTAL IMPLANTS
Dental implants are the most effective way to recharge your smile and renew full oral functions such as eating, drinking, and speaking. Modern dental implant techniques at Tacoma Dental Group provide you means to natural-looking, healthy smile like no other tooth replacement options. Many people feel they have more confidence and a better self-image after they have implants.
These are its advantages:
Increases overall Oral Comfort:
As dental implants bind with the bone, they become permanent teeth and give you comfort unlike the feeling some have such as irritation with a removable denture.
Improves your Appearance:
Dental implants’ look and feel is very similar to your own teeth. And as they are designed to fuse with the bone structure around, they become permanent. And have a success rate of 98%.
Your Speech Improves:
These allow you to speak comfortably without the fear that your teeth might slip unlike a poor-fitting denture, where the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to slur your words.
You can Eat freely:
Implants are just like your own teeth, that allow you to eat your favorite foods without pain and hence with confidence and enjoyment, unlike sliding dentures which make chewing food very difficult.
Your Oral health becomes Healthy:
Unlike a dental bridge, adjacent undamaged teeth do not be prepared or ground down to hold your new replacement tooth in place. Hence, dental implants don’t require a reduction in teeth. Thus, the nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, your unaffected teeth are left intact which improves your oral health in the long-term. Individual dental implants help in easier access between teeth, improving your oral hygiene.
Very Convenient and Durable to use:
Dental implants prove advantageous over removable dentures for their convenience as they don’t require the messy adhesives to keep them in place. Coming to the lifespan of dental implants, with proper care they would be very durable as they last indefinetely.
Your Self-Esteem sky rockets:
Dental Implants recharge your smile and help you feel better about yourself. It’s said that 15 minutes of laughter can burn 10-40 calories. So, go smile happily and burn out that bottle-up negativity.
