Beautiful smiles make life more beautiful is true for people whose smiles are beautiful. But what decides the beauty of smile? The first and foremost thing is to start sharing your smile. And for this one needs immense courage especially when the smile reveals your imperfection in the denture.
Dental implants are exactly what treats and conceals your imperfection in the smile. This treatment will ensure that your smile looks pleasing, healthier and confident.
What exactly are Dental Implants?
Simply put, Dental Implants are artificial tooth roots on which you can have a long-term solution for your missing tooth or many other dental problems. These dental implants become a permanent base for the fixed or replacement teeth. The reason for the rising popularity of dental implants lies in the way they fit, feel and function which is exactly the same as a natural tooth would feel. The technical aspect of this high level of ease and comfort is that these metallic medical-grade implant fixtures gradually get settled like completely natural part of denture and get fused with the living bone cells of the jaw. This provides strength and durability to the new teeth and brings the eating problems to an end. This also has no scope for slippage which typically happens in case of dentures.
In terms of structure of a dental implant, it consists of three main parts –
i. The implant which is like a screw that serves the role of a root for the new teeth. This portion remains permanently attached to the jaw.
ii. The abutment which is a permanent connector to support and hold a tooth or a set of teeth. This needs a dentist to be removed.
iii. The crown is the visible portion of the tooth which is made of different materials like porcelain or zirconium. These crowns are durable and offer the perfect look to your smile. This is also known as prosthetic tooth.
Why go for Dental Implants?
Some reasons for having dental implants for perfect smile fixation are:
Use of dental implants can be done for replacement of a single tooth, multiple teeth or a full upper or lower set of teeth.
The complete natural looks that these dental implants offer by getting fixed to your jawbone is yet another reason to get them fixed to your jaw.
These implants not just feel like natural teeth but they also require minimal maintenance as is the case with natural teeth. Regular brushing routine and flossing, as and when needed, is all that is required as maintenance.
Unlike dentures and bridges, dental implants offer a permanent solution which lasts for long. Furthermore it adds to your beauty and youthfulness. Since the gaps in between the teeth gradually affects the jawbone which starts shrinking over time. With such sunken appearance, one starts to look older than the age. By filling the gap with dental implants, the gradual fusion of the implant in the jaw bone adds to firmness adding youthful beauty to the perfect smile.
