Dental Implants will help to restore your natural smile
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots that are designed to function in the exact same way your natural roots would. They provide a permanent solution to missing teeth or removable dentures that both can be annoying to live with; the idea being that an implant replicates almost identically to a real tooth.
There are many advantages to having an implant fitted; the first being appearance, of course. The implants both look and feel real and following thorough consultation are designed so that they match up with the rest of your teeth and look as natural as possible. The design allows for the implant to fuse with your jawbone and means that the implant is permanent and can’t move once it is fitted.
People that use dentures will know how uncomfortable dentures are and how annoying it can be to take them in and out constantly, whether you are eating or sleeping. A denture is designed so that you feel as comfortable as possible and allows for you to live a normal life without the worry the denture could dislodge or fall out of your mouth. The implant becomes a part of you just like any other part of your body.
Speak freely and without worry
Speech is a huge factor as to why people look to having an implant fitted. Dentures can often result in the user either slurring or mumbling if the fixture even slightly moves out of position and can again be something that holds you back. Implants provide the security they should and lifts a huge burden off your shoulders, giving a new confidence to the user.
There is nothing worse than going out for a meal or having family and friends around when it gets to that time where you have to remove a denture to eat. If you don’t have to remove your denture to eat, you are still aware of it and still know that it can slide and dislodge at any point and this can be something that again holds you back. An implant will function exactly like your real teeth and will allow for you to enjoy your food in peace and eat without any pain or anxiety.
You shouldn’t allow for dentures to be holding you back in any way shape or form. If you are concerned or anxious about a denture, you should be making the change right away. Self-esteem and confidence is pretty much the main reason as to why people go ahead and have the fixtures implanted. It can make you feel so much better about yourself and removes the worry you may have had with a sliding denture.
Improve overall oral hygiene
Your overall oral health will improve as a result of having an implant fitted. The fixtures do not rely on the support of your natural teeth and any of your good teeth remain intact, whereas if you were to have a denture fitted, it would mean having teeth altered to make room for the bridge that runs across the roof of your mouth.
The main reason as to why you should go ahead and have implants fitted is purely down to convenience. A removable denture is just that… Removable. It takes away any embarrassment you may have had and saved you having to leave a denture lying about when you are sleeping when it could potentially be picking up a lot of harmful bacteria. The technology is now improving and the success rates of dental implants are near perfect and with the right care and maintenance of the implanted teeth, they can last you a lifetime. Why wait? You should be acting on this now. Get your smile and your confidence back today!
