For those of you who have lost a tooth or several teeth you should definitely consider the option of getting dental implants. Dental Implants are the most effective option for missing teeth. Needing false teeth can seem incredibly daunting and scary, but there really is no need to fret. With dental technology being so advanced, it is now possible to have prosthetic teeth that are practically indistinguishable from natural teeth. Plus dental implants function and feel like natural teeth.
This is because dental implants, unlike dentures, closely resemble the form and function of natural teeth. The dental implant is similar in form to a natural tooth in that it is composed of a titanium screw, which is just like the root of the tooth, and a restoration, which is the technical word for a false tooth. A denture or bridge on the other hand does not have a root, so it isn’t securely fitted into the mouth like an implant is. The denture or bridge kind of sits in the moth, but often becomes loose and embarrassingly, can actually fall out.
Lets face it. Bridges or dentures are not a permanent option for replacing missing teeth, whereas dental implants are. So if you have missing teeth, my advice to you is make the investment and get the dental implant. You won’t regret it. Dental Implants are painless and look feel and function like natural teeth. You will be able to eat all the food you were previously able to eat without any problems, it’s so worth it!
