Dental implants function similarly to natural teeth.
One of the most significant benefits of a dental implant is that it restores full chewing
ability. The majority of patients are unable to distinguish between their natural teeth and
the implant tooth. They can eat regularly with it, and they can even brush and floss
normally with it.
Dental implants have a long lifespan.
Dental implants can last a lifetime, however a dental bridge may only last 10 years or
so. The titanium implant is designed to blend in with the jawbone. It’s biocompatible,
which means it’s not harmful and doesn’t cause the body to reject it. Overall, it’s a
capable replacement tooth.
Dental Implants prevent bone loss
Because there is no tooth to stimulate the jaw bone in the empty region, it deteriorates.
If a tooth is lost and no implant is implanted during the first year, the bone area loses
25% of its volume, and bone loss continues over time.
Dentures can also hasten bone loss because they often become loose and grind on the
bony ridge, eroding it away over time. Because an implant replaces both the root and
the tooth, and chewing is restored, it offers the stimulation for natural bone formation.
The stability of neighbouring teeth is maintained with dental implants.
A lost tooth can cause neighbouring teeth to shift crookedly in the direction of the gap.
This causes your teeth to shift out of place, affecting your bite, chewing abilities, and
attractiveness. It may cause interference, making tooth replacement more difficult in the
future. A bad bite can cause problems with your TMJ (temporomandibular joint), which
can cause pain and headaches.
