6 Fascinating Benefits of Dental Implants

September 9th, 2020

Did you know that dental implant treatments have a success rate of 97 percent?

If you’re considering dental implants, you’re fairly guaranteed to see results.  However, if you’re wondering how implants can actually help restore your teeth, here are some of the improvements that dental implants can provide.  

1. Aesthetic Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are dental fixtures that can replace missing teeth.  While implants are strong dental replacements, they are also fitted to your existing teeth to help support their structures.  

Since implants can come in a variety of color options you can easily have them blend in with your existing teeth. 

These are major aesthetic benefits to dental implants to help improve your smile, but they also provide key health benefits that improve the health and comfort of your teeth.  

2. Bone Loss Prevention

In order to maintain its mass, your jaw requires stimulation from your teeth through biting and chewing.  This is why you may lose bone shape and density in your jaw when you lose your teeth. 

Since implants replace your tooth altogether, you can continue to bite and chew regularly to restore this stimulation for your jaw.  After your jawbone undergoes osseointegration and grows around the implant, your jaw and the implant will be properly attached to continue stimulation.  

3. No Cavities

One of the best qualities of dental implants is their cavity resistance.  Dental implants are made of artificial material instead of organic material, which means that bacteria won’t be able to eat away at the implants.  

However, implants still require regular maintenance to prevent bacteria from collecting and causing an infection in your mouth.  While you don’t have to worry about implant decay, the gums that surround the implant should be regularly cleaned and maintained. If you’re wondering how you can maintain healthy gums with implants, keep reading.

4. Convenient Care

Dental implants are convenient options because they act like normal teeth. You can brush and floss regularly just like you would with organic teeth.  

In addition to regular cleaning on your own, you should also have your dentist perform deep cleaning so you can maintain the health of your gums.

5. Durability

Other tooth replacement options like dentures are prone to slipping and dislocation, so they require periodic removal or repair.  

However, implants are designed to hold in place as permanent fixtures so that you don’t have to replace them again.

6. Bite Force Improvement

While alternative tooth fixtures are only installed on top of your gums, dental implants replace the actual root of your tooth.  The implant fits snugly inside your gums at the base of your jawbone.  Naturally, this allows for more stability and strength.  

In addition to having better placement, implants are also installed with strong materials, such as titanium or zirconia.  Your tooth root is replaced by a post made with these metals, which hold the implant fully in place.  

Poor bite force can lead to problems with your temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which can lead to headaches and migraines.  Not only can implants fix your teeth, but they can prevent the headaches and migraines that result from issues with your TMJ.
