Dental Implants: Achieving Your Best Smile
A healthy smile can be a great asset. It can give us greater confidence, improve our positivity, and make us feel happier, influencing our social lives, careers, and relationships. Because of this, it only makes sense to give our teeth the best care possible.
However, our teeth grow differently. There are people who are born missing a tooth or more teeth than the average count of 32. Some have had teeth removed due to injury, infection, or decay that happens as they age. Some experience bone loss that affects the growth of the teeth, resulting to unwanted gaps. Losing a tooth may not put you in dire straits, but these circumstances heavily alter our confidence and how we feel about ourselves.
Nobody wants to go about their daily lives with missing teeth. Maybe you instinctively put your hands in front of your mouth or avoid smiling and talking whenever possible. Fortunately, it’s not a catch-22 situation. If you’re someone who's had gaps for a long time, just recently lost a tooth, or expecting to have gaps, getting dental implants is the answer.
Dental implants do not only look natural, it also provide a strong foundation since they replace tooth roots. You don’t have to worry about dealing with the embarrassment caused by accidental denture slippages while eating or speaking, or worse, swallowing loose dentures.
According to Dr. Jerome Villanueva, Oral Surgeon and Clinical Manager of Affinity Dental Clinics, dental implants are a more conservative long-term option than dental long span bridges. They are also more resistant to disease!
“[Dental implants] will provide the necessary loads of forces to the underlying bone, which is vital to preserve that bone and ultimately gives us a fuller lip and cheek support,” Dr. Villanueva says. “Moreover, dental implants can provide back support when somebody lost all their back teeth. Removable partial dentures do not provide back support long term.”
The best part about having durable yet natural-looking dental implants is that you can still eat virtually anything. “Just more relishing!” adds Dr. Villanueva.
If you are having second thoughts on getting dental implants, Affinity assures the benefits of having them. Aside from getting your confidence back, you will also benefit from a lot of things. According to Dr. Villanueva, implants preserve tooth structure, prevents periodontal diseases, and even increase support while distributing equal help to your dentures.
Find confidence in your smile and laugh freely again with dental implants! An improved smile is followed by improved appearance, speech, comfort, self-esteem, and oral health. You no longer have to worry about gaps or poor-fitting dentures that slides and make chewing difficult, the embarrassing inconvenience of removing them, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.
And when you have decided to get implants, Affinity Dental is your best friend. Dr. Villanueva advises titanium-made implants that are resistant to dental cavities.
“Of the many different shapes and metals that have been used for dental implants, there has been a clear trend toward root-form (screw and cylinder-shaped) that is made of titanium. These are now manufactured in different thread designs, shapes, and surface modifications,” advises Dr. Villanueva.
Once you have them, you’ll never feel like they’re there. Dental implants are made to match your natural teeth. Hence, taking care of it is the same as caring for your natural teeth. Simply brush, floss, use your favourite oral antiseptic, and don’t miss your dentist recall every six months.
May it be a missing tooth or a gap that affects how you present yourself to the world, there’s always a solution. Regain your confidence, put on your best smile, and laugh freely with dental implants.
