Dental implants effectively replace the form and function of missing natural teeth. The loss of natural teeth has a significant impact on one’s life, and can affect how a person feels about different aspects of his or her social and personal life. Implants make it possible for a missing teeth sufferer to once again enjoy the pleasures of an improved quality of life, even after losing some or all of the natural teeth.
What are Problems Solved by Dental Implants?
Unattractive Smile – Losing even one tooth can greatly affect the appearance of a smile. If a person loses several or all natural teeth, then the effect is even more unattractive. Tooth loss causes the face of a patient to change shape; the face takes on a shrunken, hollow appearance which makes the person seem much older and unhealthy-looking. The implants effectively replace the form of missing natural teeth, stimulating the jawbone to retain its good structure to prevent jawbone thinning. The dental restorations attached to the implants, on the other hand, make the smile aesthetically complete and attractive once more.
Bone Deterioration – Bone deterioration occurs when the tooth root is lost with the missing teeth. Without the stimulation from the tooth roots, the jawbone thins and deteriorates with time. Dental implants replace the function of the tooth roots and stimulate the jawbone continuously, preventing the onset of jawbone deterioration, or stopping the further thinning of the bone.
Speech Difficulty – Speaking clearly is a challenge for those with missing teeth. Even the simplest words can be difficult to pronounce, especially if consonants such as “r” or “s” are involved. Implants and the teeth restorations close the gaps caused by missing teeth which make it challenging to speak clearly. As the gaps are closed, and the teeth are complete once again, clear speech is again easily manager in a normal way.
Difficulty in Eating – Eating with no teeth, or with loose dentures, is difficult and painful to do. The gums are used as teeth substitutes to cut and grind the food; this task can injure the gums especially if done for a long time. Loose dentures, on the other hand, rub painfully against the gums and mouth tissue when chewing or eating is done. Implants make it possible for a person to enjoy eating meals again without pain and difficulties.
Embarrassment – Tooth loss has a negative impact on one’s confidence. It will be hard to smile if one knows that his or her smile is incomplete and unattractive. The use of awkward-looking and loose dentures can also decrease a person’s confidence. Dental implants are firmly attached to the jawbone so there are no worries about the teeth restorations moving uncontrollably inside the mouth, and the teeth restorations close the gaps caused by missing teeth for more confident smiles.
