Permanent tooth replacement

As mentioned, dental implants are a permanent solution for tooth loss. Once you undergo implant surgery, your implant will be fixed in place for as long as you live. To make sure of this it is important that you maintain excellent dental hygiene and that you visit the dentist at least once every six months and more often if possible. You need to avoid dangerous lifestyle choices, for example smoking or excessive drinking. You also need to maintain good health as certain medical conditions can affect your dental implants. If you have dental implants at a young age then there is always a risk of developing certain medical conditions as you get older for example cardiovascular issues, diabetes and even more complicated diseases for example cancer. In this case the dental implant may fail therefore you need to maintain a healthy lifestyle, a healthy diet and refrain from poor lifestyle choices so that you can enjoy good dental health and overall well_being for the rest of your life.

Restore your mouth health and appearance

Dental implants restore the appearance and function of your mouth as well as preventing further dental health complications. This is a huge advantage of dental implants in comparison to other restorative dental treatment options. They strengthen your remaining teeth as well as your jawbone preventing further tooth loss. They also restore the shape of your mouth and prevent sagging and drooping which can make you look a lot older than you are after you lose a tooth. With dental implants you will be able to smile happily and confidently, restoring your self-confidence and self-esteem. You will also be able to eat all your favourite foods as you did before losing a tooth. Your replacement tooth will be strong and sturdy as the implant is fixed in place whereas natural teeth are slightly mobile. This means your teeth will feel stronger than ever before.

Maintain your remaining teeth

Another advantage of dental implants is that they are a standalone procedure and do not affect your adjacent teeth unlike other restorative treatments for example bridges. Your adjacent teeth remain intact rather the implant provides support for the adjacent teeth helping them to last longer and hopefully last for the rest of your life.
