If the hair is the crowning glory of the head, then the teeth are the crowning glories of the mouth. After all, each of the teeth’s surfaces is referred to as the ‘crown’. Isn’t that interesting? Known to be the hardest structures in the physical body, the teeth play a big role in our lives, which is why proper and regular dental care and maintenance are important. However, accidents happen sometimes, and whether you like it or not, a tooth or two may get compromised, leading to tooth loss! A lack of proper dental hygiene practices contributes as well due to the development of tooth decay and other potential dental diseases.
Luckily, due to improvements and advancements in dental care (thanks to science!), teeth restoration through dental implants is now possible! It’s a surgical procedure where artificial support frames and teeth are inserted in either the upper or lower jaw, or where deemed necessary.
We understand how some may be hesitant to undergo this procedure because of the surgical procedure, but as experts on this matter, we can guarantee that we always take our patient’s comfort into consideration as we work on a treatment plan to achieve that gorgeous smile!
Through the rest of this article, we hope we can convince you why getting dental implants can be greatly advantageous!
Of course, we all want that dazzling gorgeous smile, and one of the surefire ways to achieve this is when you have a complete set of healthy teeth! However, if you have been injured and a tooth or two have been compromised, having dental implants can help you restore what was lost! These artificial teeth are made to look and feel like natural teeth, so when you start wearing them, it’s almost like you have a set of brand new ones!
The teeth contribute greatly to the quality of our speech. They allow us to speak clearly and more comfortably. With dental implants, you can still speak clearly and with ease, and unlike poorly made dentures, you won’t have to worry about your implants slipping out because they are attached to your gum bone permanently.
Having a lost tooth or two can make you feel self-conscious, which may make it harder for you to smile and speak, or basically do anything that will have to show your teeth! As dental practitioners, of course, we want you to have healthy teeth while at the same time, you are feeling your best. Through dental implants, because of their overall natural feel and comfort, you probably won’t even remember about your missing teeth. As we restore what was lost, you can feel more confident about flashing your pearly whites!
Your overall oral health can improve even more with dental implants. You can still reach between teeth and clean them effectively as you would normally and regularly. Moreover, your natural teeth are not impacted by your implants, leaving them perfectly intact and healthy where they are.
Because they are meant to be permanent, dental implants are made to be durable, long-lasting, and convenient. Remember that they act and look like a replica of your natural teeth, so they are made of durable materials like stainless gold, steel, and cobalt-chromium, as well as premium materials like titanium and zirconia. These make your implants resistant to corrosion, which makes them long-lasting for the years to come. Moreover, they are easy to maintain because you won’t need to take them out for cleaning; you just need to brush regularly and take regular trips to the dentist.
