5 Facts to Choose Implants Over Conventional Teeth Loss Solutions

It is said, eyes are the windows to your soul. But it is your teeth that people notice first while meeting you. Thus, a renowned dental healthcare specialist in London suggests you to take proper care of your mouth and the teeth to cut a ‘high’ first impression with everyone.

In fact, people having damaged teeth, gaps in between adjacent molars or any other dental issues are often found to be low in confidence. If you are suffering from teeth loss, dental implants can be an excellent choice to resolve the problem.

According to the experts from a renowned London based private dental clinic, implants offer a  range of benefits over other conventional solutions to teeth loss. Let’s sum up those facts in the following paragraphs.

  • The most realistic solution to missing teeth: Implants cater to both aesthetic and functional aspects of your natural molars. Implanted elements not only look identical to the tooth or teeth you lost but also works like them. Thus, you can chew foods properly and don’t suffer from speech problem, both of which are common with dentures and bridges. The surgically implanted metal post acts as the supporting anchor of the teeth implant. Moreover, it also provides the necessary mass to your otherwise receding jawbone. The biocompatible metal fuses with the neighbouring tissues in a short time.
  • Teeth implants offer greater comfort: Conventional tooth loss solutions like bridges and dentures create sufficient discomfort and often result in sores and gagging. To install a dental bridge, you need teeth on both sides of the empty space to support it. An expert from Wimpole Dental Office points out that implants don’t have such pre-requisites. You just need to have healthy gums and maintain a sound oral hygiene to be eligible for an implants treatment. In cases where patients lack enough mass in the gums, grafting is performed to improve their gum health before implant posts are surgically fitted. 
  • Life-long solution: Implanted teeth require minimal maintenance and yet can last a life-time. Teeth-supported bridges last for 5 to 7 years on average. Dental implants are thus considered as a more cost-effective and long-term investment, which offers a much greater mileage.
  • Implants cater to your overall dental health: As compared to bridges and dentures, it is easier to maintain a sound oral health through teeth implants. Unlike the conventional treatments, it facilitates bone growth in your jaws and prevents your jaws from shrinking.  
  • Boosts self-confidence: Oral implants not only look and work just like your natural teeth but also boost up you confidence level. People with missing tooth or teeth avoid smiling to prevent exposing the gap in their jaws. Teeth implants are so realistic – both in look and performance – that it is hard to distinguish them with natural molars. Implants boost self-confidence and allow you to court success in both professional and social lives.
