How dental implants can change your life
Dental implants can transform your life in more ways than one. An implant is a highly realistic, replacement tooth root, which is positioned into the jawbone to hold a replacement tooth, crown or bridge. Over time the bone and implant bond together, forming a strong and permanent base.
The natural look
Dental implants are strong and stable and therefore look and feel like your natural teeth. For this reason, implants are a popular choice compared to other treatments such as removable dentures. Removable dentures can be a hassle in everyday life, and can sometimes be embarrassing on some occasions due to slipping while eating or speaking.
Smile with confidence
After losing a tooth due to gum disease, tooth decay or injury, you may be feeling feel less confident socially and find yourself constantly hiding your teeth when speaking and reluctant to smile. However, having natural-looking permanent dental implants can have you feeling content with your appearance and boost your self-esteem.
Implants can take years off
Missing teeth affect more than just the appearance of your smile – they can also make you look older, as your cheeks may appear sunken which can change the shape of your face. Dental implants give you the chance to restore your natural face shape; with this treatment you will see a huge transformation that will make you feel like yourself again.
Feel comfortable when having a natter
Having missing teeth or dentures that don’t fit properly may have you experiencing problems with your speech and mumbling or slurring words.
As dental implants are fixed in place, you won’t have to worry about your teeth slipping and can speak without difficulty.
Dine without distress
Just as speaking may be difficult with missing teeth, so is eating, and this may mean that you’re missing out on your favourite dishes, which just isn’t a way to live! Even if you have dentures, some foods may be tricky to eat such as hard fruits and breads, but as dental implants act as natural teeth, you can carry on just like you would with your natural teeth.
Protect your remaining teeth
Having empty spaces in your mouth, can lead to oral health issues such as the deterioration of the jawbone and further tooth loss.
