8 Amazing Dental Implants Benefits You’ll Love


It’s easy to take your teeth for granted. But it’s not until you lose one or more teeth that you realise what they do for you. They’re part of your smile, help you break down food, make digestion easy, and help you form words. 

If you lose teeth and choose to replace them, you will have a few choices — dentures, bridges, and the ultimate restoration, dental implants.

You may ask, “What’s so good about dental implants?” —why should you choose dental implants over the other options?

Let’s look at some of the leading benefits of dental implants so you can make a more informed decision about the future of your smile. 

What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that acts as a new root for a replacement tooth. 

Typically, a single implant will support a dental crown, or we can use more to support implant-retained dentures. 

1. Dental Implants Complete Your Smile

If you’ve lost a prominent tooth, it can leave you feeling self-conscious about the appearance of your smile. If you’ve found you keep your mouth closed more since losing your tooth, you can enjoy smiling again after a dental implant procedure. 

2. Dental Implants Restore Your Bite

Losing a tooth isn’t just an anaesthetic concern. You may find chewing or biting your food difficult when you have a gap in your mouth. Crunchy or chewy food can easily become trapped or cause discomfort around the exposed area of the gum. 

Unlike every other option for replacing missing teeth, implants provide a firm foundation for biting and chewing. This gives you the confidence to eat whatever you like. From steak to jacket potato, nothing will be too difficult to chew. And because your new tooth will be firmly anchored to your jaw, there’s no need to worry about it moving in your mouth as you eat. 

3. Dental Implants Bring Confidence

It’s not just smiling you will feel self-conscious about when you lose teeth. The loss of a tooth can make you weary about laughing and speaking. Depending on your lost tooth, you may have developed slight speech problems. Additionally, your gap may be more visible while talking.

When you have a dental implant, your tooth will stay securely in place when laughing, smiling, speaking, or singing. There’s no chance it’ll come loose. 

4. Dental Implants Improve Oral Health

Gaps cause problems for your dental hygiene and oral health. It’s not always easy to clean inside a gap left by a missing tooth, and this can cause a buildup of food debris and bacteria. This increases the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. 

Filling the gap with a dental implant and crown will make it easier to maintain a higher dental hygiene standard while improving oral health. 

Another way dental implants benefit your oral health is by preventing neighbouring teeth from sliding out of position and stimulating the jaw bone. After you lose teeth, your jaw will gradually deteriorate, and the remaining teeth will slide toward the gap. Teeth can become misaligned, and the jawbone loss will alter your facial structure. Dental implants prevent these issues. 

5. Dental Implants Are Low Maintenance

The maintenance is simple once we’ve placed your dental implant and your new crown is in position. All you need to do is:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day
  • Floss and use mouthwash
  • Visit us for checkups and hygiene appointments

As these are things you should do to maintain the health of your natural teeth, it makes caring for implants very easy! 

6. Dental Implants Look Completely Natural

We use tooth-coloured porcelain that matches the texture, shape, and size of your teeth. The teeth we make are impeccable and indistinguishable from the real thing. 

7. Dental Implants Are Durable

Dental implants are made from titanium. This biocompatible material is lightweight and chosen for its ability to fuse with your jawbone. Additionally, titanium won’t corrode or degrade. This material has a range of uses. As well as its use in repairing broken bones, titanium is used in vehicle manufacturing and aerospace applications. 

The high-quality porcelain used in the dental crowns we produce is also hardwearing. Although not as durable as natural tooth enamel, your crowns should last ten or more years. 

8. Dental Implants Are for Life

While you will need to replace your dental crown eventually, the titanium implant should last for life. Even though your new tooth is made from titanium and porcelain, it’s important to come for regular checkups. Oral health problems like gum disease could affect it if left untreated.
