Teeth should last a lifetime, but sometimes they just don’t. when a tooth is damaged, decayed or falls out it is important that you get it replaced. It is important for your health and your self-confidence. Whilst you obviously lose chewing ability, a lost tooth can also create problems leading to tooth loss.
Dental implants should be considered as a primary replacement for lost teeth. Dental implants have been a successful and popular treatment for damaged or lost teeth for over 50 years. The treatment is considered more predictable than bridgework.
Dental implants quite simply substitute the roots of the missing teeth. They work as an anchor for replacement teeth or crowns.
So, what actually are the benefits of dental implants?
Firstly, and commonly the most important benefit of dental implants is self-esteem. Having a tooth missing is far more noticeable than you would expect for something just a centimeter big. But the gap it leaves can be emotionally devastating. For some people, it is so bad that the person cannot look in the mirror or even leave the house.
Secondly, and in some ways more important than the first is our health. Our health should be the main priority of our lives and dental implants provide just that. If your leave a gap in your teeth instead of getting an implant then this could lead to further infection or more teeth falling out.
Dental implants will usually rid you of the problem of poor speech. Having a missing tooth or poorly fitted dentures can cause you to slur your words or have a lisp
