How Dental Implants Can Restore Your SmileAugust 10th, 2017 | by Riverside Dental | in Dental Health | 0
The newest technology available to replace loose or missing teeth is dental implants. Getting implants is a big decision, but it’s also a smart decision, and here are some reasons why.
Overall Strength and Health of Teeth
Your teeth work together in relationship to one another, when there is a missing tooth, the other teeth shift and pressure is then transferred to the remaining teeth, which can cause weakness in the overall structure of your bite. Over time, without repair, the shift in the teeth can affect one’s ability to chew, bite, and talk.
Dental implants act as “substitute roots” made of titanium, which has been proven to be able to meld biochemically to bone. This means that your implant(s) will be very strong, as strong as your original teeth, and will help to stabilize the bone into which they are embedded.
Dental implants are also easier to clean than bridges and partial or full dentures, which require their removal, soaking, and regular cleaning. You don’t have to do any of that with dental implants. Just brush your teeth like normal.
Dental implants have a very high success rating. Titanium’s durability ensures that your implants will last up to 20 years or more, whereas dentures and bridges need to be replaced about every 5 years.
Getting dental implants is not cheap, and nor should it be, after all, this is your mouth we’re talking about. You want the best, because ongoing problems with your teeth can affect your heart and your overall health in general. Over time, your titanium dental implants are the most cost-effective route delivering the best option for your smile and your well being.
The low maintenance, superior support and sturdy durability of dental implants is a wise investment thoroughly worth the cost.
