Nowadays, there are so many tooth replacement solutions available, and if can be difficult to determine which one might be right for your dental needs. If you’ve tried a restorative dentistry option and are unhappy with the results, you will be pleased to know you can improve your quality of life with dental implants in Atlanta. Read on to find out how they can give you the confidence you deserve with a smile you’ve always wanted.
What are Dental Implants?
To be explained in the easiest of terms, the implant is like a screw that is surgically placed in the jawbone, under the gum line. It is the “root” of the tooth. Then, you have the customized crown that attaches to the implant, creating a natural-looking tooth that fits in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
How Can Dental Implants Improve My Quality of Life?
Compared to more inferior methods of tooth replacement, patients with dental implants see more positive results. Here’s how:
Results that Last
Unlike other tooth replacements that must be replaced every 5 to 10 years, dental implants last for decades. As we age, our oral health changes, which can cause shifts in our jawbone, and ultimately, our facial features. More inferior restorations may not fit quite as well as they once did, which will require a replacement or additional products to help keep them in place. Dental implants are surgically placed, so they’re less likely to shift. This means, you can maintain a beautiful smile for years without worry.
Natural Look and Feel
Dental implants are made to stimulate the jaw and tissue areas of your mouth, so you are less likely to experience changes in your facial structure. They also generate a natural look and feel because of how they’re anchored into the bone. You don’t have to worry about other tooth replacements that sit only on top of the gum line or must be secured with sticky adhesive.
You no longer need to be fearful of going to dinner with your friends and dealing with accidental slippage from your restoration. Other tooth replacements do not provide the level of bite strength, which can make eating certain foods difficult or even impossible. Dental implants act just like other natural teeth. You can eat without worry because of the bite strength you will retrieve.
Overall Oral Health
Missing teeth that go untreated can result in a long list of problems, one of which is bone loss. When the bone is not being stimulated, it can deteriorate over time, leading to facial “collapse” and more. The titanium post used in dental implants allows you to maintain good oral health because of the constant stimulation the bone receives. If proper brushing and flossing are part of your daily routine, which they should be, you will also prevent bacteria from growing around the gum line.
