Tooth loss is one of the most common problems we face today. It can be caused by age, an accident, oral infection, or just poor oral care. Often a cause for embarrassment, it can affect your overall health. While the most common treatment for missing Teeth was either cosmetic dentistry or dentures, recently there has been a shift. People are now taking to dental Implants. Small posts made of titanium that are placed in the bone and gum tissue in the jaw. These posts act as a natural substitute for missing teeth. Dental Implants are often referred to as tooth implants or posts.
NATURAL TOOTH REPLACEMENT
Dental implants hold a number of advantages over other tooth replacement treatments such as cosmetic dentistry and dentures. Dental implants stimulate your bone and gum tissue in the same way that natural tooth roots do. This is important because bone and gum tissue shrinks from lack of use which is why dentures don’t fit after several years. Tooth implants also don’t rely on other remaining teeth to anchor your new replacement teeth. This is the case in cosmetic dentistry procedures like dental bridges which can also shift natural teeth out of alignment.
A FIRM BITE
Other advantages dental implants have are longevity and firm fit. Dental implants give you a new tooth which can be cleaned and chewed with exactly like a natural tooth. Furthermore, the replacement teeth are held firmly in place. Dentures, on the other hand, needs adhesives to be held in, and slippage is a common feature. Traditional dental crowns especially those made of porcelain may easily fall off or break. Dentalimplants can firmly hold your new teeth in place whether you get full mouth dental implants to replace all of your teeth or only a couple to fix minor tooth loss. Make sure the implant is placed by an experienced dental implants dentist.
