If you had a dream of your teeth falling out, all you have to do is wake up and everything will go back to the way it was. But, in real life, you don’t just “wake up” once your teeth starts to fall out, you go to the dentist and are presented options.
One of the many options is to get dental implants, an expensive choice but something that most dentists recommend. Why? Not because to rip you off, but because it’s simply the better choice.
Why exactly is it the better choice?
You’ll find an answer to that question and find out more about dental implants by reading down further below.
- Dental implants are better than bridges and/or dentures
Dentures and bridges are much cheaper alternatives to dental implants. But, bridges are weaker and prone to decay because they’re just basically filing placed in between teeth. Dentures may also interfere with your taste and often have problems with fitting.
Implants, on the other hand, are pretty simple and if done correctly by a qualified dental practitioner rarely, if at all, results in complications.
- Dental implants last for a very long time
While dental implants do need to be adjusted every now and then, they do last far longer than dental bridges. In fact, dental implants are estimated to last a lifetime!
- Some dental implants may differ from others
Dental implants made by the original Swedish manufacturer are often the go-to choice by dental practitioners. They are a bit more expensive, of course. But, they’re also proven to have a very high success rate, making them a much better, not to mention, safer choice.
As such, it’s important to discuss with your dental practitioner what kind of implant he or she will be using and its particular success rate.
- Dental implants are as close as you can get to real teeth
For starters, a dental implant fits naturally with your set of teeth and as such, should allow you to retain your natural smile.
You also won’t have to worry about things such as them slipping or falling out, or having to clean them in a cup. You also won’t find it difficult to pronounce certain words when fitting with a dental implant, which is a lot to say as compared to getting dentures.
More importantly, though, you won’t have a hard time eating as dental implants are fitted directly to where your missing tooth or teeth used to be.
As you can see, dental implants are a far better option compared to other available treatments such as bridges and/or dentures.
