With implants, the patients can talk, chew, and laugh with complete confidence without having to worry about their dentures slipping out of place. Dental implants offer highly aesthetic and natural-looking solutions for replacing missing teeth and they are also incredibly durable, usually lasting a lifetime with proper maintenance. They are also way more comfortable than traditional tooth replacements as they function just like natural teeth.
The material of the implants is titanium, a metal that is not only very strong and resistant to corrosion, but also highly biocompatible which means it is non-toxic and not rejected by the body. It is able to integrate with the bone (osseointegration) which guarantees the outstanding level of stability and durability of the implant.
Among the other benefits, dental implants can also prevent bone loss in the surrounding jaw. If a tooth is missing and is not replaced, the underlying bone starts to diminish after a while because of the lack of pressure. This happens in every case without exception, the only factor that determines the volume of bone loss is time. Bone loss is not an isolated phenomenon, but it has various effects on its environment. It can cause surrounding teeth to change their position or might even changes the shape of the face. As implants are inserted into the jawbone, they provide similar stimulation to the bone as the roots of a tooth do, preventing bone loss.
