Missing teeth can affect your confidence and image. Good thing you can now replace your missing ones with a natural-looking one with dental implants.

A tooth implant is an artificial tooth root that dentists embed in the jaw to replace the missing one. The procedure is done by a dentist, specifically a periodontist specializing in dental implant surgery. Meanwhile, a prosthodontist takes charge of the crowns needed for the visible part.

Advantages of dental implants in the long run

A dental implant procedure is a permanent solution to your broken or missing teeth. Here are some of the notable benefits that make people consider getting one. 

Tooth implants have a long lifespan

In creating the implants, dentists would choose between titanium and zirconia. These materials have impressive durability that can withstand corrosion. This means that you don’t need teeth extractions and replacements often when you have them.

In the long run, you save a lot of money by reducing or preventing future oral problems. Tooth implants that are regularly maintained can last for a lifetime. 

It prevents teeth damage and bone loss

A tooth implant process will involve fusing the titanium or zirconia material into the bone over time. Once this process succeeds, implants alone provide excellent support to the replacement tooth. Unlike tooth bridges, this option needs an existing tooth as support. 

It is more beneficial if you opt for all on 4 implants. This dental implant can replace all the natural teeth on one jaw. You prevent bone loss as the material acts as the teeth and roots. Missing teeth weaken the jawbone since it causes no pressure once you chew.

Improvement in speech 

It’s a known fact that missing teeth affect how your words sound. A dental implant prevents speech defects once it permanently replaces missing teeth, making it a better option than dentures.

Ill-fitting dentures may slip from their placement at the slightest movement, which can make your words unclear even when you try to articulate them.

Improves self-esteem

Other teeth replacement options like dentures can make you feel conscious. But with dental implants, you feel great because they go unnoticed as artificial teeth. You can smile and eat without worrying about breaking your dentures anytime.

Indeed, implants are an excellent investment compared to other dental replacement procedures. Ask your Toronto dentist to know more about the advantages of this dental treatment.
