The science of dentistry and orthodontics has progressed an astounding amount over the last fifteen to twenty years, from things like invisible braces (such as Invisalign) and coatings that dental professionals can now apply directly to the teeth to an array of other technologies and techniques which allow more freedom to the health provider and the patient alike when it comes to preserving the health of your teeth.
Perhaps one of the greatest advances in dental technology has to do, not with saving a patient's original teeth but replacing them with permanent implants.
These are far superior to any type of denture system from a variety of viewpoints, including appearance, comfort, durability and most of all performance.
While keeping your natural teeth healthy should be every person's goal, there are circumstances in life that we cannot control, and modern dental implants now give an opportunity to anyone who has lost one or more of their teeth, for nearly any reason, the ability to replace those teeth with a permanent solution.
The first impression and perhaps the biggest benefit is improved self-esteem as dental implants look, feel and perform as close to natural teeth as it is possible to get. The teeth are even designed to match your other teeth perfectly, unlike many denture options.
Also unlike dentures, dental implants eliminate the chance of slippage that many people experience with dentures. This makes both eating and speaking something that the patient no longer has to think about, as there is no slippage (which can interfere with both speech and eating). Dentures are attached with an adhesive, the best of which does not work perfectly, but dental implants are placed permanently within the mouth.
With proper care, implants can often last the lifetime of a patient, and the success rate of dental implants is extremely high - they have up to a 98% success rate. Unlike dentures, implants are permanently installed by inserting a titanium post into the bone where the missing tooth was. The bone then grows around the titanium post, anchoring it securely.
The new tooth is then mounted on this post after being designed specifically to match the other teeth in the patient's mouth. This is the biggest reason that the appearance of implants is so much better than dentures.
Tooth implants do require a solid regime of dental hygiene and care if they are to last as long as possible. Like teeth, they must be cleaned by using a variety of methods, from brushing to flossing, and attending the dentist regularly is essential.
If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants should be at the top of your list of considerations. With modern dental implants, Implantologia Verona and Impianti Dentali Verona, make your smile new again!
