|If you are missing a tooth (or teeth) and want it replaced, you have options to choose from, such as fixed bridges, implants and dentures. But there are things that you should consider such as cost, process and cosmetic value.
Most people choose implants other than dental procedures because of many reasons. Of course, one reason is, it is very natural looking, and even celebrities like Tom Cruise, Morgan Freeman and Miley Cyrus have implants. Although it is quite costly, this procedure will surely get you smiling like never before.
Even Better Than Normal Teeth
Dental implants look so much like normal teeth and for some, even better. Some have their normal teeth replaced with implants to increase their face value.
Unlike dentures, implants are deeply rooted in the gums so it will not slip off or fall off that easily. And you do not have to remove it every time you sleep.
Since it is man-made, it can be custom designed depending on the size, shape and space where it is going to be implanted. Unlike dental bridges, the implants do not affect the nearby teeth. It also keeps the integrity of your jaw bone, preventing shrinkage from tooth loss.
The procedure will involve implanting a root on the jawbone, and once it is fused, the tooth is placed. The healing process may take awhile because bone needs to grow around the implant to hold it.
Dental implants are a minor procedure and may take longer to heal. This procedure is not applicable for everyone, such as those with healing problems, for children and those who have habits that may damage the implant, like tooth clenching and grinding.
Are you dreaming of having sparkling white teeth and a smile that turns heads? Are you considering having implants to look better, feel better and improve your self esteem?
