Dental Implants - Worth The Investment!
Your smile is always worth investing in. Not only is your smile one of the first features others see, but it’s health and comfort also have a powerful influence on your quality of life. When it comes to replacing missing teeth, it becomes even more important to put your money towards the highest quality option. After all, these are your teeth we are talking about. They help you chew your food and allow you to smile with confidence.
If you need to replace missing teeth (one tooth or a full arch of teeth), you’ll be offered a variety of options, including a partial, denture or bridge. While traditional dentures may be the most cost-effective solution to replace multiple teeth, dental implants offer far more for your investment. Here’s why:
Dental implants offer a significant advantage that no other method of teeth replacement can provide. They replace the missing tooth as well as the missing tooth root. Why is this important? Without a tooth root, your jawbone doesn’t get proper stimulation to retain its density. Therefore, even with traditional dentures, you may suffer from bone loss over time. This leads to a sunken appearance in your lower face, which is frequently termed “premature facial aging.” No one wants to look older than they really are!
The ability to provide an artificial tooth root also means that your replacement teeth will have maximum stability. Knowing your prosthetic teeth are as secure as they possibly can be means that you can have confidence eating the foods you love and speaking in front of others. This is an invaluable benefit towards your quality of life.
How do dental implants work? Dental implants involve a surgical procedure that places a titanium screw into the jawbone. Over time, this implant fuses to the bone during a process called osseointegration. The implant has an abutment piece above the gum line, which holds a crown, bridge or denture. Dental implants are a highly versatile solution that gives the most long-term return on your investment!
