A missing tooth can be a real blow to our confidence, it becomes the focus of everything we do; smiling, eating, talking. There are many options for replacing a missing tooth, and dental implants in Billericay is a practical solution; offering several excellent benefits. If you’re fed up with your missing tooth taking over your life, in this post, we explore some of the benefits associated with dental implants.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants consist of a titanium rod on top of which sits a ceramic or porcelain tooth that offers a natural look and has been colour matched to blend with the rest of your teeth. The rod is anchored to the jaw in a procedure undertaken by a skilled dental surgeon in a sterile environment.
Enjoy the Natural Feel
One of the benefits you get from dental implants in Billericay is the natural feel. We understand that it may seem daunting to have a fake tooth in your mouth, and you may be worried about how it will feel, but the great thing is it doesn’t feel any different to any of your other teeth.
Once your dental implants in Billericay are fitted, you don’t have to worry about having a gap anymore, nor do you have to feel as though your implants are out of place; you can get on with your day with the feeling of having your own teeth.
Restore Natural functions
When something doesn’t feel right, it seems difficult to do things that would normally come naturally to you; it’s the same with teeth. Thanks to the natural feeling that dental implants in Billericay offer, tasks such as eating, laughing and speaking feel just as they did before the tooth was lost, and you don’t have to hesitate and think about what you’re doing or feel embarrassed that someone might notice something.
Revel in the Natural Appearance
And it’s not just the feel of your dental implants that are natural, but their appearance aswell. You may be worried that a replacement tooth will stand out against the others, bringing even more unwanted attention to your mouth and questions you may feel uncomfortable answering. With the tooth colour matched to your teeth and the porcelain/ceramic material, you can expect your tooth to blend in, leaving people none the wiser and even trick yourself.
Rebuild Your Self-esteem And Confidence
Our self-esteem and confidence are important, and losing this part of ourselves can impact our mental health. Everyone should be able to take pride in their appearance, and if they are unhappy, make a change that brings that confidence back. With dental implants, you can regain confidence in your smile, enjoy talking to people again, and above all, feel happy and content with your appearance and how you feel about yourself. So if you feel that your missing tooth is damaging your confidence, speak to our dentist today.
Improve Your Oral And Bone Health
Having the implant anchored to the jaw doesn’t just provide a natural feel, but it can help your bone health. When a tooth is lost, the jawbone below it can suffer as well as it doesn’t have the stimulation that the tooth provides through chewing, this lack of stimulation can lead to bone resorption, where the jaw loses mass, strength and shape.
Missing teeth can also affect the health of the remaining teeth in your mouth. Surrounding teeth can experience decay and misalignment due to the new space and teeth shifting into the gaps, which can lead to bite problems, and the spaces can also become home to more food particles and plaque, increasing the risk of decay; both problems affecting you physically and aesthetically.
