The top 5 benefits of dental implants

Dental implants Essex, with our dentist at Crofts Dental Practice, are a popular choice for patients with missing teeth, as they offer a number of benefits over other solutions such as dentures or dental bridges. Here we talk about the top 5 benefits. dental-implants-essex

Oral implants look and feel like natural teeth

This is because they are made to match the colour and shape of your existing teeth by our dentist. Dental implants Essex are also designed to fuse with the bone in your jaw, giving them a secure and stable base. This means that they won’t slip or move when you’re eating or talking, which can be a common problem with dentures.

When you have implants, there are no food restrictions. Implants allow you to eat whatever you wish to without worrying about your teeth slipping or moving. Our patients find this can make mealtimes much more enjoyable.

Implants can also be used to support dental bridges by our dentist if you have more than one tooth missing.

Oral implants are strong and durable

They are made from titanium, which is an extremely strong and durable material. Oral implants can last for many years with the proper care, and they’re much more resistant to wear and tear than other teeth replacement options such as dentures.

Oral implants don’t require special care

You can brush and floss your oral implants just like you would your natural teeth. There’s no need for special cleaning solutions or products. Oral implants are also resistant to tooth decay and gum disease, so you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your new teeth are less susceptible.

Implants are also less likely to develop  decay; they are impervious to cavities as they don’t have tooth enamel. However, we would advise that it’s still important to practise good oral hygiene habits such as brushing and flossing regularly.

Oral implants can help to preserve your facial structure

When you lose teeth, the bone in your jaw starts to deteriorate; the calcium is recycled from the bone and its mass reduces. This can cause your face to look sunken or aged. Oral implants help to preserve the bone in your jaw, giving you a more youthful appearance.

Oral implants can improve your overall oral health

Implants don’t just look and feel like natural teeth – they also function like them. This means that they can help to improve your bite and make it easier to eat and speak. They can also close gaps in your mouth which may have acted as areas for harmful plaque and bacteria to accumulate which would normally be problematic for your teeth and gums.

Our dental implants Essex comprise a high-quality option for replacing teeth at an affordable price. We offer a free consultation so that we can assess your individual needs and devise a treatment plan that is right for you.

While the upfront cost of implants can be higher than other tooth replacement options, it’s important to consider the long-term costs. They are a lifetime investment, and with proper care, they can last for many years. In comparison, dentures need to be replaced every few years and dental bridges also need to be replaced.
