5 Benefits of Dental Implants
At Lion Dental Centre in Stourbridge, we offer cosmetic treatments as well as general dentistry and routine appointments. Dental implants are usually considered an aesthetic treatment, but there are also lots of great health benefits that come with having this treatment.
In this post, we’ll outline 5 of the top benefits of dental implants, whilst detailing the actual procedure itself.
They’re just like your real teeth
Tooth implants in Stourbridge are made of high-quality porcelain and fixed into place with an aluminium rod, making them highly durable. What’s more, they also look very realistic – they’re designed to blend in perfectly with your smile, and no one will be able to tell you to have them in!
Just like real teeth, your dental implants will need regular care to keep them looking their best. Ensure that you brush and floss twice a day, and visit us for regular check-ups.
They can improve your oral health
Far more than negatively affecting your appearance and eating abilities, missing teeth can also lead to bone loss. Without the support of a full set of teeth, your jawbone fails to function properly, and this can lead it to gradually erode. Dental implants, being rooted to your jawbone via a titanium post, can negate this by providing vital support.
They can improve your appearance
Being unable to support the jawbone properly, missing teeth can cause the skin around the mouth to hollow or sag. Dental implants offer this support, and can greatly improve the structure, and therefore appearance, of your face. They’ll also greatly improve the functioning of your jaw and teeth.
Dental implants don’t affect eating or speaking
Because dental implants are fixed in place, and function just as your natural teeth do, you shouldn’t experience any restrictions on your eating or speaking. In order to keep your smile looking its best, it’s always best to avoid staining foods or drinks (e.g. red wine), whether you have dental implants or not! However, you won’t need to avoid eating crunchy or sticky foods.
The treatment process is incredibly simple
At Lion Dental Centre in Stourbridge, we always offer an initial consultation in which we’ll assess your situation and answer any questions you might have. We’ll also offer a detailed outline of the treatment process so you remain fully informed every step of the way.
