Dental implants have become the predominant choice for those who need replacement teeth. They are literally life changing! Patients with dental implants have discovered that they once again feel confident to smile, laugh, eat, and speak in public.
Dental implants last longer than dentures. Bridges and dentures can potentially damage otherwise healthy teeth. They also fail to provide any support for the jawbone. Once teeth are missing, the bone that supported those teeth begins to dissolve away. Eventually, there are serious issues with bone structure, jaw alignment, and facial structure. These factors add up to necessitate the replacement of bridges and dentures at certain intervals. However, dental implants maintain the integrity of the bone because of the rods that are implanted in the bone. As the bone bonds with the titanium rods, a strong foundation is created for artificial teeth. Because the bone structure is retained, dental implants will normally last for a lifetime.
Dental implants are also more comfortable than dentures. Bridges and dentures have a tendency to be bulky. This makes them uncomfortable. Because dental implants are attached directly to titanium rods that are embedded in the jawbone, they feel like real teeth. There are no clumsy attachments in your mouth to hold the teeth in place. The patient with dental implants can also feel comfortable eating practically any food. They feel and function like real teeth. This increased comfort level produces an increased level of confidence.
FInally, dental implants are much more aesthetically pleasing than dentures. They look exactly like your real teeth. They are attached to the titanium rods in such a way that they look completely natural. It is highly unlikely that anyone would be able to tell that they are not real.
