If you have teeth that are badly broken or decayed, or if you have
gaps left by missing teeth, you may find that the function of your
mouth is compromised. Alternatively, you may have perfectly
efficient teeth but are unhappy with their appearance. Dental
implants can provide a functional and cosmetic transformation,
making them an extremely popular choice for patients who want or
need to improve their teeth and smile.
Let’s find out more about the benefits of dental implants, several of
which are unique to their innovative design.
One of the biggest benefits of dental implants is their durability.
Titanium is an ultra-strong, biocompatible material that, once fused
with your jaw bone, creates an impeccably strong and secure
foundation for the implant. Patients with dental implants can enjoy
whatever foods they like with virtually no risk of their implant
becoming loose – a common problem for those who wear dentures or
With regular brushing to keep them looking as good as new, and
flossing and attending your scheduled dental check-ups to keep your
mouth and natural teeth healthy, your dental implants could last you
Another primary reason that many people choose dental implants is
because the discretion that they afford. Their permanence ensures
that there is no need to remove them for eating, sneezing or
kissing, making them a much more convenient solution than
conventional dentures. There are none of the embarrassing slips that
are so commonplace for denture patients.
Better still, the crown portion of the implant can be created in
varying shades of whiteness. This means that they can be made to
blend in discreetly with your other teeth, no one ever needs to know
that they aren’t natural. Some patients who are choosing dental
implants for a total smile transformation (and are having all or
most of their natural teeth replaced with dental implants) can
choose their preferred shade and create a brighter, whiter smile for
Traditional dental restorations such as bridgework and dentures are
well known for being more than a little uncomfortable, especially in
the early days of wearing them. In contrast, patients who are fitted
with dental implants usually report that they feel completely normal
within just a few days of them being put in place.
Many other dental solutions, including whitening procedures, dentures
and bridges, often need some maintenance due to wear and tear. In
the case of whitening, this may mean sitting through multiple
whitening sessions at least once a year to maintain your original
result. Dental implants are virtually zero-maintenance compared to
alternatives, their durability meaning that they can be a lifelong
investment in your teeth.
If you have a dental implant then you can quit worrying that that
specific tooth will ever develop a cavity – it’s simply not
possible. In addition, implants can close the gap left by missing
teeth, ensuring that any remaining natural teeth cannot shift into
the space that has been left, causing misalignment, decay and other
