Dental Implants Explained
Unlike dentures, dental implants are inserted into your jawbone and will physically become part of your body over time. They create a durable anchor because they don’t just rest on top of your gums like old-school dentures. Plus, they don’t rely on other teeth to stay in place, like ordinary bridges. When restored with crowns, bridges, or dentures, they have the capacity to look and function like real teeth.
Great For Eating And Speaking
Importantly, once you have received dental implants, you can eat whatever foods you want again, not just the softer stuff that is easiest to chew. With implants, your teeth won’t come out, either, while eating your food or drinking your cocktail! They’ll stay right where they’re supposed to. And you won’t need adhesives to keep them there. You’ll also be able to speak clearly again. You won’t have to mumble your words or worry that your dentures will fly out when you talk.
Boosting Your Health
Studies suggest that since implants are designed to bond right to your bone, they transfer the pressure of chewing to that bone, just like natural, healthy teeth would do. In turn, that pressure stimulates the bone and keeps it strong. That’s a huge benefit for people who are missing teeth. Also, if you are living without a full set of teeth, you will likely fall prey to carb-heavy diets and skip crunchy, nutritious foods, like fruits and vegetables. A diet lacking the right nutrients can lead to diminished health in the end. And not being able to chew food properly because of dental problems can lead to digestion problems. The bottom line is that dental implants can help you eat the foods you need for the nutrition your body needs.
Enhance Your Looks
Missing teeth makes a patient look older because tooth loss is associated with aging. But that’s not the only reason. To make matters worse, wrinkles will start to develop around your face, and your cheeks will take on a collapsed appearance. That’s in part because the teeth aren’t physically there to fill out the mouth, and also because the bone is slowly dissolving. However, implants can give you back a more youthful appearance, allowing you to regain your confidence in the process.
