Dental implants can be one of the best solutions for people with one or more missing teeth. Although dental implants require a few visits to the dentist to have the full procedure completed, getting this done can be an excellent choice for someone to replace their teeth.
Although there are many different tooth replacement options for someone to get teeth replaced, dental implants have become one of the top choices for many various reasons. Not only how they look, but their benefits to other aspects of the mouth and jaw.
In this article, we will go over some of these benefits and help you understand why they are one of the top choices for both general dentists and cosmetic dentists for tooth replacement.
Dental implants function like normal teeth
Dental implants look and work just like a person's natural teeth do. Although it may seem too good to be true, not only do they look like natural teeth but the cleaning and care a person gives them is equally the same. Brushing and flossing should be done the same way and helps keep the implants in the best shape possible for years to come.
When dentists say these are just like teeth, they mean it!
Implants help the jawbone in many ways
When someone loses a tooth or multiple teeth, one thing can happen that they may not have realized. The jawbone can begin deteriorating and causing issues with how a person looks. The jawline can start to sag, and it can make someone look older than they are.
However, when someone has dental implants inserted, the spoke is positioned and put into the jawbone. When someone chews and goes about their usual typical day, this stimulates the jawbone and works just like a tooth root would. By having this stimulation, a person will avoid the jawbones health going down, and any outside issues with sagging jawlines and such will be avoided.
This is another factor that makes dental implants an excellent choice for someone looking to replace missing teeth.
Dental implants last a long time
The average time dental implants last is 10 years. Of course, this will depend on how well someone keeps their oral hygiene routine and continues visiting the dentist twice per year. If someone is diligent in keeping these things a priority, implants will last them for many years to come!
