Benefits of Getting Dental Implants Placed

Benefits of Getting Dental Implants PlacedDental implants allow individuals, adults and adolescents with complete facial growth, to enjoy a quality of life they would otherwise miss because of missing teeth. Dental implants are popular because of the advantages they offer over other tooth-replacement alternatives.

What are the Benefits of Getting Dental Implants Placed?

Dental implants allow you to chew food just as you would have with natural teeth. The crown and bridge look and perform like a real tooth. The titanium root fitted into the bone is very sturdy. Taking care of dental implants is similar to caring for regular teeth; brush and floss.

A dental bridge may last for a decade or so, after which it needs to be replaced. Dental implants can last a long time, even for as long as you live. You only need to undergo the procedure once. The entire dental implant unit, including the titanium root is bio-compatible. It does not compromise the body's immunity.

A dental implant prevents bone loss and helps the gumline retain its shape and structural integrity. Without a tooth's root to stimulate it, the surrounding bone begins to deteriorate and may lose up to a fourth of its volume in the very first year after a tooth loss.

Dentures may be a cheaper alternative to implants, but they may become loose and friction between the dentures and the bone can wear away the ridge. An implant does not come with such issues attached. The titanium root stimulates the bone and aids natural growth and regeneration.

Once a tooth is lost or extracted, adjacent teeth begin to move toward the gap. This affects your bite and also your appearance. Crooked teeth interfere with any dental treatment that you may have to undergo later on. Dental implants, because they plug the gap, keep stuck food particles and bacteria from triggering gum disease.
