In the past decade the technology and treatments available to dentists have advanced considerably. This has allowed patients that have missing teeth to use some brilliant solutions. Due to the fact that the number of treatments has increased with these advances means that is can be a little overwhelming when you’re choosing which to have. The best option is to talk to your dentist to work out the best way forward.
More often than not, dental implants are top of the list when it comes to restoring missing teeth. In my opinion it’s the best way to replace any teeth that are missing. Here are the three main reasons why I would always advise people to consider implants as a treatment.
Implants have the great benefit of being just the same as your original tooth. You will be able to eat, chat, and go about your day to day life without having to worry about things like dentures or other treatments that can be removed. Implants are a popular choice because they get rid of the hassle of removable treatments, that’s due to the fact they are a permanent solution.
Many people don’t realise that when you lose a tooth the jaw bone in that area will start to deteriorate. Each tooth has a root that is attached inside the jaw bone, so when the tooth is lost it results in a space being created in the bone. As time goes by the bone will slowly deteriorate if there is nothing to replace the root. An implant will have a post attached to the bone, this will act just as the root did – therefore it will strengthen the jaw bone once the post and bone bond.
Implants have the great benefit of looking and acting just like a natural tooth does, so it will give you a very natural appearance. Even when you smile your friends will not be able to tell that you have a fake tooth in your mouth. I have had two myself and I had to tell my friends because there was no way they could tell.
