Introduction:Here are five advantages of dental implants. Dental implants are individual tooth replacements. They consist of a titanium base that attaches to your jaw bone. Then there is a post that comes up through your gums. A natural looking artificial tooth is placed on the post. Dental implants are an alternative to bridges and dentures as tooth replacements.
Quite often, you can tell if someone wears dentures or has bridges. With bridges, you can often see where they connect to surrounding teeth. With dentures, the teeth often just somehow don't ride right, or look fake. However,dental implants are mostly undetectable. Dental implants help you maintain confidence in your appearance.
Dentures and bridges can be uncomfortable. Dental implants, on the other hand, act very much like natural teeth, so they are quite comfortable. Dental implant care is just like real tooth care, so you don't have to mess around with adhesives or anything. Dental implants are permanent, so there's not much uncomfortable, annoying fuss or muss involved. Also, it is very comfortable to speak without slurring, which dentures sometimes cause.
If you have bridges, they are connected to surrounding teeth. The surrounding natural teeth often must be ground down, and are at risk for new problems because of being used as bridge connections. Dental implants are individually implanted, so they do not affect surrounding natural teeth.
Permanent dental implants let you eat anything you want, because they behave like natural teeth. However, if you have dentures, you can't chew as well, so you might not eat steak and other chewy foods anymore. With dentures and bridges, you need to avoid seeds and things that can get caught under them.
Dental implants promote a healthy jawbone by stimulating bone growth when the titanium base pushes on the bone while chewing. If you have dentures or bridges, your jaw bone may start to lose bone density, and will actually shrink.
