Despite advances in dental care, millions of Indians suffer tooth loss – mostly due to the cavity, gum disease, or injury. For many years, the only treatment options available for people with missing teeth were dentures and bridges. But, today, dental implants are possible!
Why should I consider Implants?
If you have lost a tooth or teeth you might have recognized the importance of your natural tooth. Every replacement has its own advantage and disadvantage. The replacement options need some supporting factors.
On the other hand, Dental Implants tries to give the most natural lookalike and almost feels like a natural tooth.
What are Dental Implants?
Implants are replacement tooth roots. Implants give a sturdy foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.
What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?
There are many advantages to implants, including:
Dental implants look and feel like your original teeth. And because they are designed to join with bone, they become permanent.
With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble your words. Implants allow you to speak without difficulty. It eliminates the worry that teeth might slip.
Because they become part of you, implants reduce the discomfort of removable dentures.
Moving dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your original teeth, allowing you to eat your preferred foods with confidence and without pain.
Implants can help your beautiful smile and help you feel better about yourself.
Improved oral health
Dental implants don’t need preparing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are safe, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving hygiene in your mouth.
Implants are very long-lasting and will last many years. With regular care, many implants last a lifetime.
Removable dentures are just that; removable. Implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures, as entirely as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.
How Successful Are Dental Implants?
Success rates of implants differ, depending on where in the jaw the implants are placed but, in general, implants have a success rate of up to 98%. With regular care implants can last for a lifetime.
Is it worth the money and risk?
Yes. It saves your other teeth by preventing it from drifting from the position. And unlike bridges, it doesn’t require supporting teeth preparation. However, not everyone is the right candidate for Implants. It requires good bone health.
How can I consult the dentist?
