When to Consider Dental Implants

Posted by SOOS CREEK DENTAL on Dec 15 2021, 07:51 AM

The dental implant procedure is a treatment in which the root portion of a missing tooth is replaced with a metal post. A dentist inserts these artificial structures into the patient’s jawbone. Implants act as the root of artificial teeth.

When Is It Necessary?

Dental implants become important when a patient shows some of these signs and symptoms:

  • When You Have a Missing or Chipped Tooth

Replacing the missing teeth with dental implants is one of the most durable options. It allows people to chew, bite and eat as normal. It provides security and looks natural. 

  • When Dentures Do Not Properly Fit 

Dentures cause pain and discomfort in the teeth when they do not fit properly. Implants help such patients to get rid of the pain by staying in place. They reduce the discomfort and also prevent gum irritation.

  • When Infection Strikes a Tooth

Infection in a tooth arises due to periodontal disease, injury, or some other factors. Dental implants help in preventing serious health problems that are caused due to untreated infection. It serves as an important remedy to be taken when the infection ruins the integrity of the tooth.

  • When the Jawbone Starts Deteriorating

The jawbone starts to recede when you have a missing tooth for a while. Dental implants help to replace the structure of teeth not just by filling in for missing teeth but also by stimulating the jaw and stopping bone loss.

  • The Face Starts to Sink In

When bone loss is caused by missing teeth, the face starts to sink. Implants help to give the face a natural lift and promote the means to chew and speak.

What Are Its Benefits?

Dental implants offer great advantages that other tooth replacement options can't provide. Some of them are:

  • Dental implants are more comfortable as their strength and stability make them feel like natural teeth.
  • Dental implants make it easier to speak.
  • They boost one's self-confidence.
  • They prevent bone loss as implants are anchored directly in the jaw.

Dental implants give your teeth a natural look and enhance your appearance apart from getting a tooth that functions the same as the normal one.
