Dental Implants Bryan TX dentist Dr. Majors wants to share five major reasons that patients with poor dental health should consider dental implants.
Now, we can think of several reasons that patients missing teeth should replace them with dental implants, but we have narrowed it down to the five most important. Once patients have finished reading this article, they will understand why dental implants are the leading tooth loss solution in the dental industry.
The first advantage that dental implants bring to patients’ lives is their ability to function just as well, if not better, than their original teeth. Thanks to a process called osseointegration, the dental implants are able to naturally and permanently fuse into patients’ jawbones over time to allow their fully functioning ability to perform as real teeth in the mouth. This process generally requires 4-6 months for the patient to heal and recover from, in which time, patients must strictly adhere to the dentist’s instructions regarding cleaning, resting, drinking and eating. This grants comfortable and easy masticating and biting experiences that allow the density of the teeth to strengthen over time. No other tooth replacement solution offers this property or even comes close to building future dental density.
The second reason that we love dental implants so much is due to their ability to prevent gum disease and infection with the non decay material in which they are comprised. Patients tend to underestimate the danger that gum disease can pose and the life- threatening effects it can have on our heart and brain. The inflamed blood vessels can travel through the mouth to these vital organs and cause hazardous blockage in the ventricles and tissues and cause patients to develop diseases that can lead to heart attacks, strokes and severe brain damage. By protecting the spaces in the mouth, dental implants are able to conceal tissue from being exposed to harmful and deadly inflammation that can develop above and below the gum line.
Our third advantage was influenced by the good dental bridge device that we have said goodbye to. Did you know that in order for a patient to receive a dental bridge, they must subject their remaining and “healthy” teeth to a dangerous filing down process that can ensure a comfortable fit for the device? Well, we are here to happily report that dental implants require no such filing, and, in fact, as we mentioned earlier, can actually work to strengthen the density in the teeth over time. As if it could not get any worse, dental bridges actually require replacement every 5-10 years so patients that are committing to this dental travesty only foresee a future of further dental destruction.
The fourth and most visual benefit of dental implants is how they can help patients prevent facial deformation Unfortunately, missing teeth can accelerate the destruction of the patient’s gum tissue and eventually jawbone, which in turn can affect their physical appearance significantly. However, dental implants can not only help the patient to achieve a realigned smile again, but they can also initiate the restrengthening process of the teeth and jawbone with the process of osseointegration with every bite. The dental implants and remaining teeth receive the proper exercise movement that allows them to rebuild their structure, durability and power as the patient continues to use them.
The last, but obviously not least, benefit of dental implants is their ability to complete healthy smiles. Having a missing tooth or teeth can be detrimental to patients’ confidence, especially in the corporate world, where this may even have the ability to hold someone back from their dreams. Dental implants are sized, matched and compared to the patient’s natural teeth to ensure the look, fit and feel of their new smile. Patients all over the world are completing their lacking smiles with these healthy looking, artificial teeth and changing their lives.
