Teeth, just like our skin are so conspicuous that any fault in them is noticeable with the first glance. Cracked teeth and missing teeth is particularly very embarrassing. Having natural right-shaped teeth not only aids in speech and eating but also gives one the confidence to talk and smile.
Dental implants are superior to dentures. Dentures are bulky plastic replacement teeth that are not anchored in place. The dentures must be removed at night and for cleaning. Dental implants on the other hand are securely implanted in the jawbone and are not removed at night or after meals for cleaning. Implants are considered the gold standard for tooth replacement.
The advantages of dental implants over dentures are that, 1) dental implants are a true mimic of a natural tooth. Anyone seeing the implanted tooth will mistake it for a real tooth. 2) Dental implants are used on persons of all ages. Age is not a limiting factor. Dental implants are very comfortable because they feel like natural teeth. More so, as opposed to dentures, dental implants function the same way as natural teeth, one can thus chew the hardest of foods. People wearing dentures are limited in what they can eat. Dental implants are vastly superior in chewing forces generated as compared to dentures.
Another advantage is that dental implants stimulate and preserve the jawbone. This prevents the appearance of premature aging because facial contours are maintained. Finally, because dental implants are made of titanium, there is no risk of decay.
