Dental Implants: 5 Reasons Why They Could Work For You

Losing a permanent tooth can be very traumatic, and research shows that it can have an effect on the way you are perceived by others, too. Many people who lose teeth through accidents or illness report that they feel less confident in social and working environments as a result of this, and believe that finding a solution to the problem will make a big difference to their lives.

If you've never heard of dental implants, you may be surprised to find that they are a common treatment for missing teeth, and that, unlike bridges or dentures, they are usually indistinguishable from your own teeth. Dental implants are titanium posts which are inserted into the jawbone, designed to fuse with the surrounding tissues to create a secure base for a crown or denture.

The benefits of dental implants are just beginning to be realized by the public, and here at Guiney Dental Clinic, we're very impressed with the results we've seen.

How Dental Implants Can Benefit You:

  1. They don't affect healthy teeth. Many methods of replacing lost teeth involve filing down or capping healthy teeth, but dental implants stand alone and do not cause any damage to the teeth around them. Dental implants can also hold bridges if necessary.
  2. They look great. A dental implant looks like a real tooth - and, more importantly, it feels like a real tooth, too. Patients with implants love the natural look they achieve, and many report a feeling of having got their smile back.
  3. They're reliable. With dental implants, there's no need to worry about your teeth moving or sliding in your mouth as you speak or eat. Implants are comfortable and feel natural, and since they are attached to your jawbone, they won't move around.
  4. They last. Dental implants can last for the rest of your life, and don't need replacing every five or ten years, as other tooth replacement solutions do. This can save you a great deal of time and money, and means you'll have a smile you can rely on.
  5. They don't hinder your lifestyle. You may have heard people with false teeth or bridges explaining that they cannot eat certain foods, or even having to remove their teeth before they eat. Eating a varied and balanced diet is essential for oral health as well as general wellness, and dental implants mean that you don't need to restrict your diet because of your teeth - they are anchored in your jaw, so you can eat whatever you like! You're also free to take part in sports and other activities without the worry that your teeth will let you down.
