Start 2017 Off With a Smile
How long have you been pushing your visit to the dentist to get your missing tooth examined? Weeks, months, years? Missing teeth not only cause functional problems, but cosmetic ones as well. It can be rather cumbersome to chew and eat properly with a missing tooth, leading to nutritional problems and a drop in confidence. A missing tooth is also rather noticeable, especially ones in the front that make up your smile. Make 2017 the year that you get a dental implant, and restore the smile you appreciate and love!
Why are Dental Implants Effective?
Dental implants are unlike other restorative solutions. Its uniqueness stems from replacing a missing tooth, as well as the corresponding tooth root.
One of the key reasons why dental implants are so effective is because of its ability to anchor the jawbone in place. Through a process called osseointegration, a dental implant is bonded to the jawbone and permanently fixed. This method allows the dental implant to imitate a natural tooth, both in appearance and function. A dental implant supports the jawbone much like a natural tooth, keeping the jawbone in place and preventing it from shifting or deteriorating.
We mentioned that missing teeth mess with your confidence, but dental implants are a solution. Dental implants boost your confidence in a huge way, especially if you have been without a tooth for many years. A dental implant looks, feels, and functions exactly how a natural tooth would. That means you can eat the foods you love, have no doubts when you’re taking a group selfie, and feel great about all of it at the same time. Sometimes, those with dental implants forget for months at a time that they have a dental implant because it feels that natural and requires the same daily care as natural teeth. Even if you are using another solution right now, you will see a major spike in your confidence level when you get a dental implant.
Why are Dentures Not a Good Solution?
Many things can be left hanging with last year, including dentures. Dentures are out of date, and no longer practical. They actually cause more harm than good.
Dentures do not function the same way as a dental implant. Dental implants support your jawbone, a denture does not. In fact, dentures only act as ground for you to chew your food, nothing more. Since they are not providing actual support the jawbone, those that use dentures typically experience sunken or collapsed facial appearances over time.
Dentures also cause massive nutritional problems. Even with proper maintenance and care, dentures are a breeding ground for bacteria and plaque. Food can easily get trapped underneath a denture, and gives bacteria a lot of time to multiply and spread. This can cause blisters in the mouth, periodontitis, and more problems.
