If you have multiple missing teeth or teeth that are deteriorating, dental implants might be the right choice for you. Unlike regular dentures, a benefit of dental implants is that they are fixed to the jaw. During the procedure, the artificial root is embedded in each side of the jaw bone, and the denture is fixed on top, creating a stable dental structure. Implants are permanent teeth that don’t need to be taken out and are safe and secure when chewing, talking, and brushing.
Are dental implants worth it? Well, they’re much more comfortable than regular dentures and don’t require adhesives to stay in place. Speech will be improved as well as overall functionality. The implants prevent jaw bone from deteriorating, which prevents disease and damage. If taken care of properly, the implants can last a lifetime. Simply brush and floss daily as you would with your natural teeth and you should be set for life. Since they don’t require removal like dentures they are easier to get used to and take care of, if these appeal to you they might be worth the time to investigate.
