12 Benefits of Dental Implants for Healthy Life

Fed up of uncomfortable or ill-fitting dentures? Dreaming of a fuller, healthier smile? Not only can missing or damaged teeth lead to serious health problems, but they can also damage self-esteem and cause a drop in quality of life. Regaining health and confidence is easy with modern and affordable dental implants in Borehamwood. The benefits of dental implants are plentiful and far-reaching, but most importantly, they can help you enjoy life and smile with confidence once again!

1. Implants feel just like natural teeth
Restoring full form and function, dental implants comfortably follow the natural curve of your jaw. Living day-to-day life is easy with strong, stable and healthy teeth.

2. Enjoy a varied diet
Naturally robust and durable, dental implants can withstand the increase in pressure needed to chew certain foods. With implants there’s no need to avoid crunchy fruits, vegetables and nuts - eat until your heart’s content!

3. Implants prevent your face from sagging
Without a full set of teeth, your face can droop and take on a sad, sunken appearance. Conversely, dental implants prevent bone loss and strengthen your facial structure. Implants reverse this unhealthy aging process and give your face a desirably full and youthful look.

4. A permanent solution
Traditional teeth replacement methods (including dentures) only last for about 5 to 10 years. Although they may need the odd adjustment, dental implants can last a lifetime or up to 40 years with correct care.

5. Speak easy
Whereas clumsy and uncomfortable dentures can inhibit speech and cause the wearer to slur their words, implants feel as natural and secure as real teeth. Speak freely and enjoy clear speech and pronunciation with dental implants.

6. Implants protect your remaining teeth
Dental implants stop any of your remaining teeth from drifting into the empty spaces created by missing teeth. This in turn prevents possible tooth crowding and further dental complications.

7. Say goodbye to cavities
It’s impossible for implants to develop cavities. However, you must clean your implants regularly to remove bacteria that could cause infection, weak gums and the eventual failure of the implants.

8. Live life to the fullest
There’s no need to be self-conscious of your teeth with dental implants. Traditional dentures pose the risk of falling out during conversations and meals, leading people to avoid engaging in social activity. Dental implants, however, allow you to go about your daily life without sparing your teeth a second thought!

9. Low maintenance
Implants don’t require any special care. Simply brush and floss your teeth daily as usual, and attend regular dentist checkups to stay in good oral health.

10. A high success rate
In comparison with other dental repair or replacement treatments, implants are a remarkably reliable and long lasting way of restoring smiles.

11. A strong and stable solution
In contrast to moveable dentures that can fall out during many necessary daily activities, implants are securely attached to the jawbone. In fact, dental implants fuse with the bone over time to become a part of your biological makeup. With implants, you won’t have to worry about your teeth shifting or falling out.

12. Implants prevent bone loss
Once a tooth is lost, the surrounding bone is gradually reabsorbed into the body and results in serious bone loss. Dental implants take the place of the tooth root and stimulate the jawbone to keep it strong and healthy.
