Physical Health Benefits with Dental Implants
Dental implants help reduce and prevent further bone loss. When you lose a tooth, the bone around the tooth begins to deteriorate. Like a muscle, the bone needs to have constant stimulation.
A dental implant replaces the tooth root, which helps stimulate the bone in the jaw and encourages natural bone growth. This can also reduce the risk of gum recession because of tooth loss.
Furthermore, without treatment, missing teeth can result in serious and complex health concerns. The permanent nature of dental implants helps reduce the risk of further dental and overall health concerns. For example, they can help decrease your risk of developing gum disease.
Serious health conditions such as heart attack and cardiovascular disease have links to gum disease. They can also prevent other systemic diseases associated with poor oral hygiene.
Additionally, dental implants can improve your speech and the way you speak. When you lose one or more teeth, it can affect the way you pronounce certain sounds and words. The gaps that missing teeth create can lead to a slipping tongue, a lisp, or changes in airflow.
So, it can be hard to effectively talk clearly. Dental implants can restore proper tongue placement and airflow by filling in the gaps. Finally, you will speak much more clearly and sound more successful.
Psychological and Aesthetic Benefits of Dental Implants
Losing teeth may lower self-esteem because it affects how one looks. Dental implants help to maintain the structure of your profile and jawline. By supporting the natural growth and strength of the bone, dental implants can help create a more youthful appearance. Dental Implants can also secure dentures or bridges, reducing slippage and restoring personal confidence in daily life.
Dental implants look and function like your natural teeth. Dental implants help improve the chewing function of your bite. With a stable bite, they improve the ability to chew comfortably and eat a balanced diet. Patients won’t need to worry about slippage and can speak, eat, and drink without restriction.
Best of all, dental implants can prevent premature facial sagging! Facial sagging may occur when you lose bone density in the jaw. Dental implants can help encourage natural bone growth and prevent facial sagging. By supporting neighboring teeth, dental implants help avoid damage or removal of remaining healthy teeth.
Cost-effectiveness of Dental Implants
Dental implants are a long-term investment in your overall well-being and oral health. They help prevent the need for further advanced dental care. Avoiding tooth replacement because of treatment cost often leads to more expensive treatment down the road.
Yes, dental implants can be more expensive upfront when comparing them to other tooth replacement options. This is mainly because of the surgical procedure and using the highest-quality of materials. However, think about the longevity, benefits and durability of dental implants. They can last a lifetime with proper care versus dentures or dental bridges, and improve your quality of life!
The longevity and Durability of Dental Implants
Dental implants have a 99% long-term success rate! That means that they surpass alternative treatments when you evaluate the long-term benefits. Dental implants require no additional care other than normal oral hygiene routine.
For example, dentures often require frequent adjustments and relining. You will also need new dentures every couple of years because of changes in the mouth’s structure over time. The additional costs can quickly add-up, making traditional dentures a less cost-effective option in the long run.
Similarly, dental bridges often require damaging adjacent healthy teeth to support them. The dentist will need to grind down and adjust adjacent teeth to use them as support for the bridge. Because of this, the longevity of a dental bridge greatly depends on the health of the adjusted teeth. In turn, this increases the chances of future dental work and additional expenses.
