Some excellent information from Dr Wilson at stokebishop-dentalcentre.com , delivered in a relaxed and understandable way.
Do you have damaged teeth or one or more that are missing? Have you decided it’s time to do something about it? If so, the good news is that there is a whole industry dedicated to helping you get the help you want. However, the bad news is that, with so many options to choose from, you could wind up picking the wrong one. To help with your decision, think about the following reasons so many people love dental implants. You can also watch the Youtube video below which is an excellent introduction .
Second Only to the Real Thing
In just about every way that matters, dental implants are basically the best option besides actual teeth. Dental implants are stable, strong and durable. Best of all, though, it looks and feels the part perfectly. No one will notice your implant is fake and you’ll quickly start treating it like the real thing: talking, eating, laughing, etc. without issue. You can find out plenty more information about implants on the Association of Dental Implantologists website here
Dental implants need very little maintenance from you. Every once in a while, they may need an adjustment, but that’s hard from an emergency procedure and the same dentist who helped with the implant can take care of it for you. However, with proper care, your implants will be with you for your entire life.
Now compare that to some of the best alternatives. For example, traditional bridges that rely on your other teeth need to be replaced ever five years or so. If you take great care of them, they may make it closer to seven to 10, but that’s it.
Stay in Place
No matter how good they look or real they feel, no one wants to deal with fake teeth that are going to run the risk of exposing themselves at some point. Most of us have heard horror stories from people who had their teeth fall out or click around while they were in a social situation. This is embarrassing in the moment and sometimes lasts for minutes until you can get them back into place.
You’ll never have to worry about dental implants causing this kind of problem for you though. Once they’re in place, they literally become a part of your body. It’s virtually impossible for them to come loose. In fact, if you did decided you wanted them removed, you’d have to have a professional do the procedure for you.
As a result, people with dental implants tend to be far more confident. They don’t dodge social situations or have problems being outgoing and expressing themselves.
Stay in the Entire Time
Along the same lines, you’re never needing to take out dental implants to drop them in a cup at night so you can wake up to a fresh smile. Never again worry about running out of solution to keep your teeth in or the fact that you knocked the glass over at night. Don’t ever worry that someone will notice the utensils in your room and realize your smile isn’t real.
When you go to sleep at night, the dental implants join you.
Protect the Rest of Your Mouth
Going with dental implants ensures that the hole in your mouth where the other tooth used to be is now covered. This helps in a big way by ensuring that diseases like gingivitis can no longer sneak in and cause serious problems for you.
Plus, as implants don’t depend on other teeth in your mouth like dental bridges, you don’t have to worry about a real tooth having to get ground down or otherwise adjusted to prepare them for the procedure.
For all these reasons and more, dental implants make a great solution for those who would like a smile free of missing teeth.
