You might be thinking about how will dental implants improve your life and what makes them better than other options. Dental implants are installed into your jawbone surgically, and they are a permanent solution for replacing a missing tooth or teeth. In the dental world, there are various types of dental implants. One of the types of dental implant is All-on-4®. All-on-4®implants are used to replace an entire row of teeth. Other dental implants are the ones that replace a single tooth. All of these dental implants improve your life in various ways, such as:
- It makes eating, drinking and talking much easier
Activities such as chewing and talking are affected when a tooth or several teeth are missing for a prolonged period. You leave certain foods from your diet due to the need for too much chewing. For instance, if you lose your premolars, grinding becomes a bit difficult, so you will always choose soft foods over your favourite hard meals. When you get dental implants, it becomes easy to chew. Your speaking becomes more apparent, and there is no difficulty when drinking.
- Improves your confidence
When you have missing teeth, it might be hard to smile in front of people. You become self-conscious. With dental implants installed, your genuine faith is restored. They give you that natural look and restore your facial structure and smile.
- Restores and protects your oral health
Dental implants restore your oral health. When you have missing teeth, your jawbone is prone to degeneration and loss due to the lack of tooth for support. As bone loss occurs, your oral health deteriorates. Dental implants provide the jawbone with the help it needs, protecting your oral health. The gaps left by missing teeth are also susceptible to infection, and implants safeguard the gum against bacteria.
- More comfortable
Dentures, bridges and other dental options are effective. However, they can be uncomfortable. Their maintenance is also strict as they are removable. After every meal, you need to clean them by removing them, which can be painful. Dentures can also poke or inch you. Dental implants, on the other hand, are not removable and are very comfortable.
