5 Reasons to Choose Dental Implants over other Tooth Replacement Procedures
So you’re in dire need of a tooth replacement—and you’re unsure which route to take. With a variety of options (including bridges, partial and complete dentures, and dental implants) available, we understand that this choice can feel overwhelming. To help narrow things down for you, our team of Toronto dentists has compiled information on our top pick: dental implants.
Here are 5 reasons to go with implants:
1. They’re comfortable
While speaking or eating, dentures have been known to slip and slide. Because of this, they can make their wearer generally quite uncomfortable—on both the physical and aesthetic levels. Meanwhile, dental implants are attached directly to your jawbone, preventing movement of any kind. With their added security, you’ll feel comfortable no matter what activity you’re partaking in.
2. They’re easy to care for
Because they look, feel, and operate like natural teeth, implant care is extremely simple: you can brush and floss regularly, with no issues accessing the spaces between the teeth. Conversely, dentures or bridges can cause areas of plaque accumulation when poorly fitted. If improperly cared for, this excess plaque and bacteria can result in gum disease or decay in nearby teeth.
What’s more, implants don’t require the use of an adhesive, which is notoriously difficult to clean from dentures. When leftover glue remains on these dental appliances, it allows bacteria to grow, which may lead to poor gum health or bad breath.
3. They prevent jawbone deterioration
When the natural teeth are lost, the jawbone naturally begins to shrink to compensate for any missing roots. By filling these spaces with titanium alternatives, implants preserve the jawbone’s structure. This halts the rapid aging effect that shrinkage can cause.
4. They’re resilient
If cared for properly, dental implants can last indefinitely. While this option is immediately more costly than dentures or bridges, it prevents the need for later upkeep and replacement—which can become incredibly expensive.
5. They’ll keep you looking fabulous—and feeling confident!
All in all, implants let you chew and speak easily, care properly for your overall health, and preserve the youth of your face in the long run. Further, with the perfect set of pearly whites they provide, they’re sure to leave you smiling from ear to ear!
