Teeth implants can quickly and efficiently bring back that beautiful, bright & white smile and you will be able to laugh and eat just like you did when you had all of your teeth in place.
Moreover, yet another huge advantage of dental implants is that the self esteem of the patient is being restored. You will not feel anymore embarrassed of speaking in public, of laughing, or of talking to people.
The dental implants also offer protection for the gums and for the bones in your jaw. Unlike crowns and other kinds of dentures, the implants will never slip from the mouth while eating or speaking. Perhaps the best thing about the dental implants is that they look and feel 100% natural. Nobody will ever be able to tell that you actually have “prosthetic teeth”, that they are not natural.
The old style dentures are usually anchored to your teeth (or to what has remained of them!), while the dental implants are anchored to the natural bone in your jaw. They are fixated there extremely securely, and they will never move around, or give you the feeling that you have a strange material in your mouth.
The lifespan of the dental implants is anywhere between 20 and 30 years, and even more. This fact of course depends on many factors, such as the state of health of the patient, and whether he/she respects the daily dental cleaning regimen.
Implants should be treated just like natural teeth. Once they are in your mouth, it is important to brush and floss them regularly, exactly like you would do with your natural teeth. On the other hand, the lifespan of a traditional fixed bridge is only 10-15 years.
The dental implant is made up of two parts: the root and the crown. The root is actually the titanium screw that is anchored to your natural bone in the jaw, and the bone will nicely grow around this fixture, so that it will anchor it properly. Then, the crown is the actual tooth shaped part, which is usually made of porcelain. The color, look and feel of the crown part is that of a natural tooth.
Even though dental implants require a slightly bigger investment that the traditional crowns, bridges and prosthetic teeth, it is definitely worth the effort. They are both functionally and aesthetically behaving exactly like a set of natural teeth.
