People who had had tooth replacement will usually have concerns over dietary changes. Those who have dentures will have to avoid certain food items because they are hard to eat or it might cause the dentures to loosen up because of uneven pressure, which can be too big of a compromise for some. But those who have Dental Implants will not have any of these concerns at all.
Since its introduction, Dental implants have become very popular, primarily because they allow you to eat practically whatever you want without any discomfort. The roots of dental implants are directly set into the jawbone so it stays secure. Thus, you can bite down with your front teeth or chew on either side without having to worry about the new teeth dislodging or moving to the opposite side.
Food items that are usually difficult to eat or even avoided with dentures – such as fresh apples or corns on the cob – are very easy to eat with dental implants. Because of the way that they were set, implants look, feel and work like natural teeth. You might even find yourself forgetting that you have them at all. They are stationary, natural-looking and permanent replacement option for missing teeth.
Another advantage of dental implants is that their installation will not disturb any adjacent teeth, whether you are replacing just one missing tooth or an entire mouthful of teeth. This is very different from the traditional crown and bridge placement which can affect adjacent teeth as they will have to be fitted with crowns which can involve extensive restructuring and adjustments.
Dental implants also allow your jawbone to continue to grow. The root of natural teeth stimulates the regeneration of bone tissue to ensure a healthy and strong jawbone, maintaining the natural shape of the face. Dentures do not have a root, which causes the jawbone to atrophy and lead to dramatic changes in the look of the face over time as the lower jaw moves closer to the upper jaw.
Indeed, it cannot be denied that dental implants is the best option for teeth replacement today. Still, it is important that you first talk to a reputable dentist before you get them because they might not be the best option for you considering your specific circumstances. It is good to know, though, that there are still other options for teeth replacement should you not quality for implants.
