The main advantage of implants is that we no longer have to choose dentures. We will always have a beautiful smile. Implants are not only good for your overall health, but also for the health of other teeth. If we lack natural teeth, not only do we lose the functionality of the oral cavity, but we also face a number of problems.
Remember that the lack of teeth is not only troublesome, but can also cause a sharp deterioration in the condition of the oral cavity. Dental implants help us look and feel better, regain our self-esteem and improve our quality of life. For over 50 years, dental implants have successfully replaced missing teeth and are now standard in restoring functionality to the deteriorating condition of the oral cavity. We deserve to have a beautiful smile, and dental implants can significantly help with that.
Most of all, they help to improve the appearance. They preserve the bone and prevent further deterioration of the facial structure. When most or all of the natural teeth are damaged or simply missing, bone stimulation is not possible. The body senses that the jaw no longer needs to support the teeth and is starting to relax. Facial structure deteriorates over time. The lips become narrow, the lower part of the face begins to contract to form a pointed chin, wrinkles appear around the mouth and “marionette lines” appear. It can make us look older than we really are. Thanks to dental implants, wrinkles and collapse of the facial structure are eliminated, and a smile can rejuvenate us by up to 20 years.
If we are missing only one tooth, it is always better to choose an implant than a traditional bridge – it looks much more aesthetic. It is particularly useful in the front part of the mouth where preventing visible bone loss is critical to a natural appearance.
In a professional office, the dentist can replace missing or damaged teeth with new, beautiful implants in one procedure. Thanks to this, we will have a beautiful smile right away. In addition, much better chewing ability, tooth stability and overall comfort will return. However, we should also remember that each case is different, therefore, during the first, free consultation, we will receive information on a more precise time frame of the procedure.
Greater self-esteem and confidence
Dental implants help you feel better. Thanks to them, we can eat, laugh and smile without any problems. Nothing will hurt us and we will not be afraid that they will fall out. The implants look and behave like real teeth – they do not limit our lives in any way.
Convenience in everyday situations
Unlike dentures, we don’t have to take out our implants. We can brush, floss, eat, drink and sleep with dental implants as they are permanent.
Dental implants are very similar to natural teeth. When the entire tooth – including the root – is replaced, it will look very natural. No one will know we have implants unless we tell them.
Restoring a smile
Replacing teeth with traditional bridges often requires the dentist to grind adjacent teeth. Then the bridge can be fixed and it will hold on. The natural lost tooth structure, however, can never be replaced. Partial dentures have attachments that stick to adjacent teeth, so they apply pressure to them as the metal structure moves back and forth as you move your jaw daily. These clamps also damage the gums, causing wounds. Replacing missing teeth with crowns / bridges based on implants does not interfere with the natural teeth. Therefore, the remaining teeth will not be damaged.
Greater overall quality of life
Dental implants allow for a more natural smile. Thanks to this, our comfort and self-confidence increase when we smile, speak and eat. The quality of life will improve as we can eat everything unhindered. We will also be able to smile and talk nicely.
Immediate improvement in eating habits
We no longer have to use adhesives that support dentures. We no longer have to remove dentures and bridges. We will also eliminate health problems related to the lack of teeth. If oral health improves, it will have a positive effect on our overall health and well-being. Dental implants eliminate the risk of periodontal disease, chronic infection and inflammatory disease caused by bacteria. Implant care is similar to the one we use for natural teeth. Thanks to brushing, flossing and regular checks, we will have a beautiful smile for the rest of our lives. Let’s brush and floss our teeth every day and remember to visit a professional dentist at least twice a year to check the condition of our mouth.
