Your smile is probably the first thing someone notices about your appearance. Studies show a strong link between dental aesthetics and your psycho-social wellbeing.
Fortunately, dental implants provide a long-term solution for missing teeth and help you regain your confidence, enhancing your social and psychological wellbeing. Here’s how.
Statistics show that approximately 30 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. Dental implants fill any gaps in your teeth caused by tooth loss. Tooth decay, gum disease, poor oral hygiene are some of the reasons why this might happen.
A dentist places a metal implant where the gap is during the procedure and drills it into the bone. After a few months, the implant integrates into the bone, and a dental crown is attached to the top. As a result, you get perfectly aligned, realistic-looking teeth.
Who Qualifies for Dental Implants?
There are several reasons why you might need dental implants.
Missing Teeth or Tooth
If you’re suffering from a missing tooth or teeth, it not only affects your appearance but can also gradually deteriorate the entire structure of your teeth. Dental implants boost your confidence and support and enhance your oral health.
Loose Dentures of Bridge
Dental implants offer a more permanent and convenient solution if your dentures are loose or keep slipping out since they won’t slip out when you talk or eat. You won’t even need to take them out before eating every time.
If you have an infected tooth that is beyond repair, it can be extracted and replaced with an implant to maintain the structure of your teeth.
Dentures or missing teeth can make your facial appearance look sunken in due to a regressed jawbone. Dental implants help stimulate the jawbone and will not result in such a problem.
If you’re suffering from any of these conditions and it’s affecting your oral health and your social life, then it’s time to visit your dentist and discuss the possibilities of a dental implant.
