Dental implants instead of a lost tooth or teeth!
Typical side effects of loosing teeth are:
- discomfort as remaining teeth shift
- inability to chew some foods
- inability to speak clearly
- headaches or unease in situations at work or home
- self-conscious about your teeth and mouth
Dental implants are a good investment
As dental implant treatment may initially be more expensive than other treatment methods it often turns out the best investment in your dental and health situation. Because most patients can expect them to last a life time. Other treatment methods like bridges and dentures require alterations and adjustments over time.
Dental implants improve self esteem
Considering all other benefits, chances are that dental implants will improve your overall self-esteem and you will feel better about yourself. At least that is what many of those people who have already been treated with dental implants have told us. You can regain nearly all the capabilities you had with your natural teeth, giving you renewed confidence, and allowing you to enjoy life, do all the things everyone else is doing and not think twice about it.
Dental implants save your natural smile
The effect of tooth loss varies from person to person and depends on what exactly has been lost. If you've lost the crown, you've lost the visible part of your tooth. But if you've lost the root as well, you've lost the unseen part of your tooth.
The root anchors the tooth in your jawbone, providing stable support for the crown. Without the root, the bone around the lost tooth may gradually recede, remaining teeth may shift and chewing may become more difficult with time.
You can choose from a number of ways to replace your tooth crowns. But if you're interested in replacing your entire tooth - crown and root - your only option is dental implants.
Dental implants improve appearance
There are two parts to every tooth: the crown and the root. The crown is the visible part and the root is the unseen part which anchors the tooth in your jawbone, providing stable
support for your crown.
When an entire tooth is lost – crown and root - shrinkage of the jawbone may occur making the face look older. Dental implants can stop this process.
There are many ways to replace tooth crowns, but only dental implants can replace the entire tooth including both crown and root. dental implants look, feel and function like your own natural teeth.
Dental implants improve comfort
Dental implants eliminate the pain and discomfort of removable full or partial dentures. Since dentures sit on top of the jawbone and gums, continuous shrinkage of the jaw bone alters the fit of the denture resulting in slipping or rocking of the dentures. Exposed nerves and irritation of the gum tissue may add to the discomfort.
Implant supported replacement teeth are like natural teeth because they are anchored securely to your jawbone. Gum irritation and the pain of exposed nerves associated with conventional full or partial dentures are eliminated.
Dental implants improve speech
With ill fitting dentures, the teeth slip and slide around the mouth. The facial muscles become tense in an attempt to hold the teeth in place. This often results in mumbling, slurred speech or clicking noises. Implant supported replacement teeth allow you to speak with confidence in a relaxed and natural tone.
Eat Better with dental implants
Dental implants restore chewing efficiency of teeth. This allows you to eat your favourite foods with confidence and without pain. You can enjoy what everyone is eating and you don't have to think twice about it.
A full upper denture covers the palate of the mouth and reduces the ability to taste foods. With dental implants, you can have the palate removed from your upper denture so you can taste and enjoy your food.
Convenience of dental implants
Dental implants save from the embarrassing inconveniences of removable partial and full dentures. You will eliminate the use of gooey denture adhesives that must be re-applied throughout the day. You will no longer need to cover your mouth when you laugh or smile, for fear that your teeth will pop out or fall down.
Patients who are treated with dental implants should to expect a lifelong replacement for their lost teeth.
