Dental implants are the cutting edge technology dentists use right now to restore missing teeth. The idea is practical in it's architecture, but requires an artist's touch to get it set up the right way.
A real tooth is rooted into your jawbone, and has nerve endings attached that help provide nutritional value to the tooth. Once that tooth is uprooted, a replacement must be made available, or else the jawbone begins to become weak.
An implant is a manufactured root. It doesn't have nerve endings, like a real tooth would, but nonetheless, the jawbone will receive it into the body if it is installed the right way.
This makes an implant the most ideal replacement for missing teeth ever created. They act exactly like a real tooth would. You do not need to remove them to eat and/or clean. They feel and look like your own natural teeth.
Down below are several advantages you may want to consider.
Implants have been around enough time that studies show they can last at least forty years. The only reason we don't know if they last longer is because implants have only been around for about forty years.
Many implant dentists believe implants can last a lifetime, as long you manage them properly. Studies have shown implants outlasting bridges, dentures, and other cosmetic dental solutions.
They Look Real
Dental implants look, feel and behave like your natural teeth. They can be fitted so well into your jawbone, that the vast majority of people will never know otherwise. This allows patients to eat, speak and socialize with confidence.
No Dietary Restrictions
Dentures were once the most reliable option ... but the Pros believe their time has come and gone. Dentures are not secured like implants are. This means you can not eat whatever you would like to eat because they move. Crunchy fruit and/or vegetables, hard bread, and steak are foods you can eat with no issue - when you have dental implants.
No Issues Speaking
People new to dentures will mispronounce their words, and even spit, when conversing with their new prosthetics. This is because their tongue, mouth, and brain, haven't all wired together to figure out speech yet. These issues disappear gradually, but why bother with all that when dental implants do not hinder speech at all.
Smiling and Socializing
People act very odd when they are dealing with missing teeth. They shut their mouths when smiling, or mask their mouths when talking. Whether they notice it, or not, their overall sureness has been bothered. Why go through all those hoops when dental implants work so well, not even your friends will know you have new teeth?! Dental implants can let you eat, speak and socialize without distress or humiliation.
No Bone Density and/or Tissue Problems
Dental implant treatments have a proven track record of great success. The process is now predictable and comfortable, with wonderful results.
