Time to Consider Dental Implants

Posted by Dr. Bird on Jan 28 2022, 02:08 AM

Even while we maintain an excellent oral regimen and take sufficient dental care, there are times that anyone can suffer periodontal disease, decay, and dental injury in the most unexpected way. Earlier treatment for these instances was either dentures or bridges. Nowadays, there are dental implants that are more effective.

Dental Implants are tooth root replacements that provide a strong groundwork for your prosthetic tooth. This prosthetic could be either permanent or removable teeth specifically designed to match your natural tooth structure.

Advantages of Getting Dental Implants

When it comes to dental implant treatment, there are many questions everyone who undergoes has in mind. One of them is, “How is it better than bridges or dentures?” 

Here are some answers: 

  • It improves the appearance since it is designed to align with our dental structure. The prosthetic looks and feels like our own teeth.
  • It improves the teeth's durability. If it is well cared for, they last a lifetime.
  • A dental implant can improve your speech, unlike ill-fitting dentures, which often seem to slip or cause a slur while talking. 
  • It improves confidence and self-esteem.
  • One of the best parts of getting a dental implant is that the treatment doesn't require reducing teeth. It improves the overall oral health as the teeth near the implants are not altered and are left undamaged.
  • It is pretty convenient, as the structure is similar to natural teeth. There is little pain after the treatment is completed compared to getting dentures.

Another crucial question every patient has is, “Is it painful?” Well, expect the treatment to cause some discomfort. But during the procedure, the dentist will provide local anesthetics to numb the pain. And compared to removing a tooth, there is a bit less hassle.

When Should You Consider Dental Implants?

When it comes to getting a dental implant, there is no specific time. It is up to the patient's comfort, urgency, and condition of the teeth. Any person with healthy gums and no oral problems can undergo a dental implant. Once the dental implant is completed, you have to maintain good oral hygiene, including brushing, flossing, and mouthwash. Also, make sure to take a regular dental checkup to maintain the longevity of the implant.
