Smile and the world smiles with you- but what good is a smile without the very thing that makes it shine – the teeth?!
We aren’t quite sure why and when these honest servants leave us. Just that the gap will deface your beauty, add unnecessary ventilation that cause whistling sounds, and tongue twisting. You only rescue in that case will be a dental implant from your dentist or orthodontist.
While it may sound dangerous, it really is not. It is a simple method that has been devised to restore the beauty of your teeth in case you need to undergo a surgery.
Dental implants and why you need them:
This dental cave usually appears due to tooth decay, periodontal diseases or injury. Previously, the only options available were bridges and dentures for this issue. Now those remedies have been replaced by dentals implant of the very teeth that are missing. They are every bit as efficient as your normal teeth in chewing food. The only difference is they are artificial and that is something you will not even remember after you get accustomed to them.
Dental implant is the replacement of tooth-root to provide a solid foundation for the fixed or removable synthetic teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.
Once you get the life-like teeth replicas your appearance changes dramatically. Implants have a lot of advantages, such as:
- Enhancing your appearance;
- Improving your speech;
- Providing comfort;
- Easy eating with a proper bite;
- Increased self-esteem;
- Improvement in oral health;
- Life long duration (provided you care for them properly);
- No more removable dentures! Also, no need for messy adhesive to keep them in place.
- Dental implants don’t need a removal of neighboring teeth as in tooth-supported bridges. But carelessness will cost you with gum infection, bleeding soreness and general discomfort.
Why and what care should be taken to keep dental implants healthy?
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically positioned into the jaw bone beneath the gums. After the implant procedure, the bone in your jaws needs to grow onto them and fuse with them. Unlike dentures, dental implants don’t loosen up. You don’t need to remove them for cleaning, as they can be brushed like natural teeth. The thing is, even after implant procedure, the natural shape of your face remains intact. Awesome, huh?
When you loose one or more teeth your jaw bone does not have any work to do; so it starts deteriorating. If you get dental implants it actually helps natural growth of your jaw bone and prevents further loss.
Is this the future?
Perhaps! Implants give you a natural way of laughing and speaking. You can eat whatever you want with full taste and a natural bite. Now here’s the amazing part – there are no cavities to worry about! The age of replacements is upon us and we should be ready to embrace it. If you are worried that the restoration process will be as painful as the extraction process, you are wrong. Implants will become your best friend when you go out and you will feel much more confident while smiling in public. Better than keeping an infected tooth to avoid embarrassment, right?
