If you are missing teeth or have experienced considerable damage to your teeth, you may feel self conscious about your smile. Fortunately, dental implants can restore both the appearance and function of your teeth, providing a number of life-changing benefits.
A Permanent and Durable Solution
Unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants provide a long-lasting solution for tooth loss. Dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone, where they fuse with the bone and become a part of your natural dental anatomy. This provides a stable foundation for replacement teeth, ensuring they will not shift or slip out of place while you eat or speak. According to a study published in BMC Oral Health, the long-term survival rates of dental implants are between 93.3 and 98%, indicating that dental implants are an effective and reliable long-term solution for tooth loss.
Transforming Oral Health
Dental implants not only improve the appearance of your smile, but they also transform your oral health and quality of life. Implants help to maintain the integrity of your jawbone, preserving the contours of your face allowing you avoid an accelerated aging effect of bone loss. Additionally, they allow you to eat and speak with confidence, without worrying about slipping dentures or uncomfortable bridges.
According to an article published by the FDA, dental implants not only provide these benefits, but also reduce the risk of further tooth loss.
The Psychological Benefits of a Beautiful Smile
In addition to the physical benefits, dental implants can also have a significant impact on your psychological well-being. A study published on PubMed, found that patients faced a period of fear, shame and denial upon learning that they could no longer keep their teeth. However, the same study found that once these same patients received their dental implants, they experienced highly improved self-esteem and a more active social life. A beautiful smile also enhances your professional image, which often impacts your overall quality of life.
