Attractive, healthy teeth pay an important role in our general health and well-being. You look and feel confident when smiling and laughing with friends and family, anytime and anywhere. Strong teeth enable you to eat favorite foods; so important when maintaining a healthy diet. Dental implants are an ideal solution for those who have lost multiple teeth due to trauma, or because of periodontal disease or decay.
Even with good dental care, many older people face the loss of multiple teeth as they age. Having many missing teeth is not only a problem for how you look and feel, but can also be detrimental your health. Replacing these teeth is very important. The three basic options to replace several missing teeth are Implants, Dental Bridges and Dentures.
Implant supported teeth are permanently fixed in the mouth, unlike removable appliances like dentures. They don’t slip or click, and there is no worry about them moving or falling out when speaking, eating, or participating in activities. And because dental implants are placed directly into the bone, they help preserve the jawbone and prevent bone deterioration. Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth, and can last a lifetime.
In the past, traditional tooth supported bridges have been a primary method for replacing several missing teeth. However, using a bridge has several drawbacks:
Another traditional approach to treating multiple missing teeth has been to use partial dentures. These are appliances made of plastic and metal that clip to adjacent healthy teeth in order to fill the gaps created by missing teeth.
Dental implants are a better solution. They are fixed in place, do not move, and eliminate the need to worry about your teeth. They are the closest thing possible to natural teeth. People with dental implants say they look better, feel better, and have more confidence. And they can finally eat what they want, and participate in all the activities they desire. It’s not uncommon to hear the comment “I feel like I got my life back!”
