1. Restoring confidence
Restored appearance is the most immediately obvious benefit of dental implants with your Dentist Neutral Bay. Dental implants can act as a root for crowns and fill the gaps in your teeth with a realistic tooth simulation of a colour that matches the surrounding teeth. They’re a sure way of restoring your confidence and making you comfortable to smile freely around others. We hear this feedback from many of our clients at our North Sydney Dentist. Dental implants can also help to restore speaking ability, particularly if they replace dentures, which can make it difficult to speak.
2. Preserving appearance
Dental implants from your dentist are also helpful in preserving the long-term appearance of your teeth. This is because the loss of one tooth can impact your entire dental structure. When one tooth is lost, this creates a space that the other teeth may then shift into. This can create its own functional and aesthetic problems, and make it less possible for your Invisalign North Sydney dentist to install dental implants later. Missing teeth can also affect the shape of the jaw, by making the jawbone shrink and affecting facial appearance – even when the mouth is closed.
3. Restoring mouth function
Having a gap in your teeth or multiple missing teeth can make it hard for you to chew and bite as you normally would. This can become worse if the missing tooth is not addressed, allowing the other teeth to shift into places where they shouldn’t be. By closing gaps, dental implants prevent hard foods from hitting exposed roots, making it easier to eat with confidence. If dentures are the alternative to missing teeth, then implants make it a lot easier and more efficient to eat and chew, promoting proper nutrition.
4. Improving comfort
Dental implants may be a lot more comfortable than some other dental solutions for missing teeth, such as full or partial dentures. This is particularly the case if the gumline recedes or the jaw shrinks, making dentures an imperfect fit and creating local irritation. Conversely, an implant is solidly implanted and behaves just like a normal tooth. An implant does require some care but it is less extensive care than many alternatives.
The process of having a dental implant is straightforward. The first step is to meet with your local Dental Clinic Neutral Bay for a consult. They will be able to assess your situation and provide treatment options, outlining the cost and the timeframes and what each option involves. Generally, to have a dental implant you will first need an X-ray.
