Why Dental Implants Might Be the Right Choice for You

Dental implants are unquestionably one of the best assets in modern dentistry. There are many reasons to take a serious look at dental implants when it comes to replacing your missing teeth:

Dental Implants Are An Ideal Tooth Replacement

Why Dental Implants Might Be the Right Choice for You

Anytime a tooth falls out or you have one pulled, the encircling bone will collapse and shrinks away after a while. A dental implant is the nearest substitute there is to an actual tooth replacement. Similar to a live, healthy tooth, the implant is designed to absorb routine impact and transfer it to the neighboring bone, which helps your mouth preserve its bone levels.

Dental Implants are Titanium and Will Not Rot

Dental implants are crafted from titanium and the crown that winds into the dental implant is made from high-quality metal or sometimes ceramic. Unlike your real teeth, both of these materials are not vulnerable to degradation or corrosion from the bacteria, sugar, and acid in your mouth. In spite of being cavity-resistant, however, dental implants must still be cleaned and cared for as though they were real teeth due to the fact that recipients are prone to bone loss near the implant along with gum disease if the implants are not thoroughly cleaned and taken care of.

Dental Implants Offer More Reliable Results

Traditional dentures rest on top of your gums and are primarily supported by the bone that lies underneath your gums. The way pressure is put on the bone does is not penetrating as it would be with an implant or, of course, a natural tooth. As a result, the bone erodes over time and after many years of wearing a denture, it will start to feel loose and new ones will have to be made in order for them to properly fit. The denture itself has remained exactly the same, but the surrounding bone and gums on which the denture relies for support break down over time.
