What Are Some of the Dental Implants Benefits?
Dental Implants improve the overall quality of life
With implant-supported replacement teeth, the appearance of the smile is more natural and the teeth function more like natural teeth. The result is increased comfort and confidence when smiling, speaking, and eating.
If dentures and partials are replaced with implant-supported teeth, the overall enhancement in quality of life is even more significant, with an ability to eat all types of foods, elimination of messy adhesives, and improved speech, comfort and appearance.
Preserves the integrity of facial structures
By preventing the bone resorption than would normally occur with the loss of teeth, the facial structures remain intact. This is particularly important when all of the teeth are missing, as the lower one-third of the face collapses if implants are not placed to preserve the bone.
Better health due to improved nutrition and proper digestion
People with dentures usually have problems eating certain foods, such as fresh vegetables and fruits, which can compromise their nutrition. Additionally, since it is difficult to chew properly with dentures, digestion is often compromised!
Adjacent teeth are not compromised to replace missing teeth
Tooth replacement with traditional tooth-supported bridges requires grinding down the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth/teeth so that the bridge can be cemented onto them. This tooth structure can never be replaced and the long-term health of these teeth is compromised. Partial dentures have clasps that hook onto adjacent teeth, putting pressure on them as the partial rocks back and forth.
Eventually, these teeth can loosen and come out as a result of this pressure. Replacing missing teeth with implant-supported crowns/bridges does not involve the adjacent natural teeth, so they are not compromised, or damaged.
Convenience of hygiene
It is much easier to care for an implant-supported crown, which can be cleaned like a natural tooth. In comparison, a tooth-supported bridge requires the use of a floss threader for proper cleaning. It is also more convenient to clean implant-supported replacement teeth than a denture. It’s crucial to maintain good oral hygiene, whether you have natural teeth or dental implants. If you have braces, be sure to read about oral hygiene for braces to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Elimination of denture adhesives
Since implant-supported teeth are securely attached to the implants, there is no need for messy denture adhesives, which are often needed to keep dentures from falling out.
The mouth is restored as closely as possible to its natural state
By replacing the entire tooth, including the root, it is possible to replicate the function of natural teeth, with a strong, stable foundation that allows comfortable biting and chewing. In addition, nothing in the mouth looks or feels artificial. While dental implants bring a more natural look, if you’re looking to brighten your natural teeth’s appearance, discover the various tooth whitening options we have to offer.
Increased stability and a sense of security that teeth will not fall out when eating, laughing or sneezing
People who wear dentures often worry that their dentures will fall out when they laugh, sneeze and sometimes even when they eat. Since the bone bonds to the implants, replacement teeth have a stable foundation and are securely attached to the implants, so there is no fear that teeth will fall out.
Since implants preserve bone, preventing deterioration of the facial structures, appearance is improved. The collapse of the lower one-third of the face caused by complete tooth loss can be visually corrected and the remaining bone preserved.
The appearance of wrinkles around the mouth caused by posterior bite collapse, or complete facial structure collapse is virtually eliminated. Your smile is improved when replacement teeth look more like natural teeth.
Even when only one tooth is missing, long-term esthetics are usually much better with an implant-supported replacement tooth than with a traditional tooth-supported bridge. This is particularly important in the front of your mouth, where preventing a visible bone defect is critical for a natural appearance.
Restored self-esteem and renewed self-confidence
Many of the people who now enjoy the benefits of implant-supported replacement teeth state that their self-esteem and self-confidence have been restored as a result of improved appearance, function, comfort, and health. Restoring your smile can do wonders for your confidence. If fear or anxiety has held you back from seeking dental treatments, learn how to overcome your fear of the dentist and prioritize your oral health.
Improved ability to taste foods
This benefit is provided by Dr. Wang, the chief dentist at Vancouver Deerwater Dental, This is her observation of her dental implant patients. According to the patients, wearing an upper denture can prevent someone from really tasting food, as the roof of the mouth is covered.
With implant-supported replacement teeth, it is not necessary to cover the roof of the mouth, so it is possible to enjoy the taste of foods. Enjoying the taste of foods is vital, and maintaining fresh breath enhances this experience. Check out our tips on how to maintain fresh breath to further complement your dining moments.
