Dental implants are surgical components, which are used as artificial replacements for the roots of teeth. These can directly fit into a patient’s jawbone to hold false teeth or crowns in place. If taken care of, regularly and adequately, dental implants can last for the rest of a patient’s life.
Crowns, bridges and dentures are only short-term solutions to dental problems. In fact, crowns and bridges also lead to a greater risk of tooth failure and cavities since fitting them requires grinding of the teeth. Unlike other measures, implants can be fixed into your mouth with isolation from the rest of your teeth. Keeping in mind such factors, dental implants are considered to be the safest and most comfortable long-term solution currently available.
Other Advantages of Dental Implants:
- Improved lifestyle by restoration of your self-esteem, comfort, nutrition, speech, appearance, oral health as well as the freedom to enjoy all kinds of food items.
- Preservation of bones
- Reduction in bone deterioration and resorption, which may result in loss of jawbone height.
- Unlike in case of dentures where teeth need to be removed at night, your teeth are within your mouth in case of implants.
