There are a variety of options to choose from when it comes to covering up gaps in your mouth or replace missing teeth to improve your smile. Just to name a few are removable dentures, fixed bridges, and of course, dental implants. Why is it that implants are typically the first choice recommended to patients compared to the options available?
Strong and Stable, Just Like Real Teeth
Dental implants are by far the closest thing you’ll get to your natural healthy teeth. They’ll look, feel, fit, and function just like your natural teeth would, and because they’re inserted into your jawbone with titanium posts, you can be sure that they will not move or fall out.
Another great benefit is the maintenance on your implants is not much different than what you would do with your natural teeth which is brushing twice a day and flossing once a day.
Keep Your Natural Smile
Once your implants are inserted and the healing is complete, you will feel like you have natural healthy teeth. Your speech will be fine and you’ll be able to eat whatever you like.
Even when it comes to pictures or social events, you won’t have to be conscious or embarrassed that people will see anything but a big- beautiful smile. You can enjoy your everyday life with the smile you’ve always wanted.
Enjoy Your Smile With No Complications
Dental implants will be the easiest method you can choose unlike the alternatives such as removable dentures or fixed bridges because they add a level of complexity to your everyday life. When you choose implants, you get a full set of strong teeth that you can enjoy with no problems.
When you choose removable dentures, you have to get accustom to them being in your mouth which can take a few weeks and you’ll have to constantly take them out every night to allow your tissues to rest.
Your speaking may also be affected because your tongue position is different than when you had natural teeth, this may cause hissing or a whistling sound when you talk.
Due to the nature of the procedure, if you choose to go with a fixed bridge, you will have to remove enamel from the adjacent teeth that are going to support the bridge. This means you are taking perfectly healthy teeth and shaving them down in order to fit the crowns that are going to placed for the bridge.
Additionally, because the two adjacent teeth are covered by a cap, flossing and brushing your teeth under the cap becomes very difficult- which can lead to more problems such as cavities and root canals.
