Why dental implants over dentures

Improved Appearance When teeth are lost, there is ongoing shrinkage of the jawbone making the face look older in terms of facial structure. Dental implants can slow or stop this process in preserving the underlying jawbone and overlying facial structures. Dental implant supported bridges do also provide improved natural esthetics simliar to that of natural teeth.

Improved Comfort Dental implants eliminate the pain of exposed nerves, irritation of the gum tissue and discomfort of removable full or partial dentures. Implant secured or stabilised replacement teeth or overdentures are more comfortable than conventional dentures because there is no slipping or movement. Implant supported replacement teeth are like natural teeth because they are anchored securely to your jawbone.

Improved Speech Teeth slip and slide around the mouth with ill-fitting dentures. The facial muscles become tense in an attempt to hold the teeth in place often resulting in mumbling, slurred speech or clicking noises. Replacement teeth allow you to speak with confidence in a relaxed and natural tone.

Eat Better The average denture patient with a well-fitting denture eats at 15-20% efficiency when compared to a person with natural teeth. As the jawbone shrinks, your chewing efficiency is reduced even more, making it difficult to eat certain foods. Dental implants can restore chewing efficiency and enable individuals to eat properly instead of limiting diets to easily chewed foods for poorly fitting dentures. A full upper denture covers the palate of the mouth and reduces the ability to taste foods. With dental implants, you can have the palate removed from your upper denture so you can taste and enjoy your food.

Convenience Dental implants can eliminate the numerous embarrassing inconveniences of removable partial and full dentures. There would also be no need for the use of denture adhesives that may be applied and re-applied throughout the day. Implants provide your with the confidence to laugh or smile and not in fear that teeth will pop out or fall down.

Stimulate bone growth and preserve oral health Unlike dentures, dental implants can stimulate bone growth and help preserve oral health as your jaw bones with the dental implants are constantly used and exercised in preventing bone shrinkages. Dental implants can help to maintain the shape and structure of the jaw bone
