What Can Dental Implants Do For Your Smile?
Patients who may need dental implants are often indecisive regarding the differences between implants, crowns and bridges. To follow are some of the important facts regarding dental implants and what they can do to improve your smile. Dental implants are more permanent than bridges or crowns, which many patients consider when it comes to repairing their smile.
CAN DENTAL IMPLANTS IMPROVE The Appearance of My Smile?
When an individual is missing a tooth or multiple teeth, the jawbone adjusts accordingly, resulting in lips receding. This often results in an individual looking older. Dental implants are surgically attached to the jawbone. The process of the jaw adjusting slows down considerably, resulting in a more aesthetically-pleasing smile.
ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS COMFORTABLE?
Any pain or gum irritation associated with dentures is removed when using a dental implant. Bridges are not a permanent solution, as they are connected to the surrounding teeth, however, they can be less costly. Dental implants, as they are surgically attached, are a permanent, more natural-feeling solution.
CAN DENTAL IMPLANTS IMPROVE SPEECH?
When dentures aren’t properly secured, they may click and shift around in the mouth. Sometimes this results in slurred speech. Since dental implants are actually connected, there’s nothing moving around inside the mouth.
CAN OVERALL DENTAL HEALTH BE IMPROVED BY IMPLANTS?
Dentures only allow for a minor percentage of eating efficiency, while those with dental implants are able to function as anyone with their natural teeth would. Crowns and bridges often require the teeth surrounding the bridge or crown to be filed down, but with implants, your natural teeth don’t have to be adjusted to accommodate the implant.
