Benefits of dental implants

Dental implants improve oral health and aesthetics. They are an effective and safe solution in terms of replacing teeth that have been lost (the pieces fulfill all the necessary functions just as natural teeth do. And they provide a perfect aesthetic appearance)

 

Here are some of its benefits:

- Dental implants can last between 20 and 25 years and, with good care, even accompany you for a lifetime.

- They are an excellent option to replace lost parts.

- The new teeth are firmly in the jawbone, ready to give you a perfect smile and help you keep your breath fresh.

- They are generally made with titanium, a material that adapts very well to the structure of the jaw.

              However, thanks to new technologies, Zirconium implants have begun to be developed, a material with a very high biological compatibility, which repels the accumulation of bacteria even more than titanium and is excellent for patients who do not tolerate the metal.

-They provide you with a perfect and healthy smile that goes far beyond aesthetics, since they considerably improve your quality of life.

 

And it is for all this that this procedure is considered the best advance in dental medicine in recent times.

Minimally invasive surgery techniques without discomfort allow a recovery in the shortest possible time with exceptional results.

Reasons why dental implants are the best option to restore lost parts

The most traditional treatments go through the placement of removable prostheses or bridges. However, dental implants offer countless advantages

.

 

Advantages of dental implants

 

1. Full integration
Implants are not natural teeth, but they are very similar. They behave, look and feel like they are.
The implant fuses with the bone, thus achieving great stability. And the crown perfectly mimics the tooth both in shape, size and color as well as in hardness, so that its functionality and appearance is the same as the missing piece had.

2. They protect the rest of the mouth
In this sense, dental implants offer a triple benefit. On the one hand, they prevent the disappearance of bone. When a piece is missing, the absence of stimulation in the area causes the body to stop regenerating and rebuilding the bone tissue, this implies not only functional but also aesthetic affectation, since the loss of bone causes the lips to retract.
On the other hand, the implants prevent the rest of the pieces from moving to occupy the gap generated. In this way, they will stay in place, thus avoiding mispositions that, in the long run, generate countless problems: premature wear of parts, jaw tension, etc.
And, thirdly, implants do not damage the rest of the teeth, as bridges do, since it is necessary to carve healthy pieces to hold them.

3. They are durable
Dental implants are made of particularly resistant materials. Following the guidelines given by the implantologist, following correct dental hygiene and attending the essential periodic check-ups, they will remain in perfect condition for many years.
In addition, no retouching will be necessary, even if another tooth is lost. This is not the case in removable prostheses, in which the deterioration of any of the teeth that serves as a support may force the appliance to be rectified or even replaced.

4. They are safe
Techniques in dental implantology have advanced a lot in recent years, so that the possibility of rejections or problems in dental implants is minimal if you go to a good specialist and follow the recommendations indicated. The implant success rate is very close to 100%.

 5. Solutions tailored to the patient.

Medical and technological advances, as well as the use of new materials, currently allow dental implant techniques to be very minimally invasive and to generate little discomfort after their placement.
