Why replace missing teeth with dental implants

Male with Dental Bridges

Teeth are very important – and anyone living without them always mentions how their quality of life, health, relationships, and confidence are all affected.

As soon as something goes wrong with any tooth it is very important that it gets replacement.

Psychological impact of missing teeth

There are plenty of studies that have looked at the emotional effects of tooth loss.

The results of these studies have found:

  • People feel less confident about them and are more likely to feel inhibited in carrying out everyday activities.
  • People are likely to feel that the shape of their face has changed since they lost their teeth
  • People often avoid looking at themselves in the mirror
  • People often do not let their partner see them without teeth in place due to embarrassment

Oral health issues

  • When teeth are removed, it becomes harder to clean your teeth due to shifting or eruption of your teeth. This can in turn lead to more plaque or bacteria forming on your teeth which can lead to gum inflammation or periodontal disease.
  • The jaws may not bite together properly and this can affect chewing or cause jaw problems.
  • There can be difficulty in talking
  • The can be pain in the facial muscles due to an improper bite
  • Food may trap plaque, and accumulation can lead to more dental decay or gum disease

What are the advantages of dental implants?

Dental Implants have great success rates

In general dental implants have a very high success rate. Success rates are around 95 to 98% after 8 years.

Be free again

Do you always look at the mirror and wonder what you wish you could have if you didn’t have dentures in your mouth?

Have you forgotten that time when you could smile freely without your dentures wobbling up-and-down?

With implants you have the freedom to eat the type of food you want, when you want!

Protects your bone from disappearing

When you lose teeth, it is common for the jawbone to deteriorate due to a lack of stimulation. Dental implants are designed to mimic the natural truth and are able to better preserve your jawbone

No damage to surrounding teeth

Dental implants are amazing in that they do not affect your surrounding teeth like dentures and bridges do. Dentures have little clips that attach onto the surrounding teeth, which can occasionally weaken the teeth.

Bridges require removal of tooth structure from the surrounding teeth, thereby acting as an anchor.

Improved hygiene

Dental Bridges and dentures can be hard to claim and occasionally can lead to poor hygiene in the mouth compared to implants. This means you can spend less time looking after your teeth

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
