How Dental Implants Can Improve Your Oral Health - What to Know

It can be difficult to crack a smile if you constantly feel self-conscious about the state of your teeth. This is why it’s no surprise to see many people cautious of any procedures that may make drastic changes to the smile that you’re used to sharing with others. To that end, your eyes may be the window to your soul, but your mouth is the instrument that allows you to express your joy and love to others. In cases where you feel your confidence is comprised, whether it is due to fracture, cavities, gum disease, or something more, the role of a dental implant is important as it helps provide a natural, healthy, and permanent replacement to your decaying teeth so you can bring back the confidence behind your smile.

But first, what are dental implants?

Dental implants are placed into the jawbone and used to support false teeth using a titanium screw to replace tooth roots. The metal used to support the implant is safe and actually preserves bone density since it fills up an otherwise empty space that would result in degeneration and the reduction of your jawbone if left unattended. There are a few more beneficial reasons why dental implants can help maintain a longer-lasting and stronger teeth. Let's take a look.

Benefit #1: They Provide Better Comfort and Functionality

Dental implants are a permanent solution for patients with missing teeth. Compared to dentures, which are designed to fit over the gums and should be replaced regularly, dental implants are designed to function like natural teeth. Titanium is used to replace the root and placed into the jawbone for a durable anchor that is meant to last a lifetime, and since it is deeply embedded into the sockets, you don’t have to watch out for any shifting or friction as an aftereffect. Because of that, you should be able to comfortably go on with your life without any issues regarding biting, chewing food, or speaking as dental implants provide both comfort and functionality.

Benefit #2: They Do Not Require Special Maintenance

Caring for your dental implants is similar to caring for your natural teeth - all you need to do is brush them regularly and swish around a bit of mouthwash to reinforce the cleanliness. The only difference is that you will first have to consult with your doctor if you want to floss your teeth, as the cementum layer that exists between your natural teeth are absent with an implant. You will have to take caution if you plan on running your floss between your gum line.

Benefit #3: They Reduce the Risk of Tooth and Gum Disease

Empty sockets from a recently extracted tooth are hot breeding grounds for bacteria, and even dentures or dental bridges are not enough to completely fill the hard-to-reach areas where bacteria will eventually build up. On the other hand, dental implants reach deep into your jawline and fill any holes completely, and without any exposure, the chances of developing tooth or gum disease are significantly reduced.
