Top 5 reasons to have oral implants fitted today!
Regardless of your age, having a gap in your smile can seriously impact on your self-confidence and well-being, especially if the gap is closer to the front of your mouth than you would like.
While it is possible to have a dental bridge fitted to correct the gap aesthetically, many people seek something a bit more permanent and reliable. If this sounds like you, having a dental implant around Milton Keynes could be just what you are looking for!
In this article, the top 5 benefits of dental implants in Milton Keynes will be explored and provide a bit more insight into the long term benefits of implants.
Since ancient Egypt, dentures have been the gold standard in replacing missing teeth and are still common in restorative dentistry today.
Implants, however, are more reliable than dentures as they are fitted; you cannot lose your prostheses (teeth), they cannot fall out while you are talking, and you do not have to be wary of certain foods due to the vulnerability of the teeth.
Although implants do not last forever, with correct dental care, they can last up to 20 years; that’s a very long time!
When they come to the end of their functionality, you may be able to have new ones fitted in a different part of your mouth, depending on the overall condition of your jaw and you remaining natural teeth, but this will need to be discussed with your dentist.
Do you like taking a bite out of an apple? Or are you a fan of seaside rock?
Implants offer you a significantly improved bite, not only in being better aligned but also in strength. No need to worry about putting excess pressure on your new teeth, as they are attached firmly to your jaw, you can bite into as many tough foods as you like without worrying about causing damage.
In life, confidence is always key. When you have your implants fitted, your new tooth or teeth will be matched perfectly in colour and shape to your surrounding teeth and will provide a more natural appearance to your smile.
Also, lack of movement or slipping will have an enormous impact on your confidence, leading you to grin like a cheshire cat at every opportunity.
No more deterioration
When we lose teeth, our jawbone recedes, due to having nothing to hold in place anymore.
This impacts on your remaining natural teeth, causing them to lose stability and move into unusual and sometimes uncomfortable positions. Implants promote bone regrowth and therefore, provide more support for any remaining natural teeth you may have.
There are many more benefits to having implants fitted, but the overall aim of this cosmetic procedure is to improve your smile, your confidence and allow you to have a set of fully functioning (non-moveable) teeth that won’t fall out. What more could you ask for?
