Dental implantology is one of the fastest-growing dental specialties that allows for the replacement of missing teeth. Dental implants are small titanium elements that are surgically implanted into the jawbone, where they fuse with the bone to create a stable foundation for the placement of a crown or bridge. The dental implant serves as the “root” of the tooth.
There are many reasons why people may choose to undergo dental implant treatment. One of the most common reasons is the replacement of missing teeth, which can improve appearance and function, and therefore, the quality of life. There are numerous health benefits of dental implant treatment, including:
Missing teeth can hinder proper chewing, which can lead to digestive issues and malnutrition. Dental implants can restore chewing function, allowing patients to enjoy a wider variety of foods and maintain better overall health.
When teeth are missing, the jawbone can begin to deteriorate. Dental implants stimulate the jawbone to maintain its density and prevent further bone loss.
Missing teeth can affect speech patterns, making it difficult to pronounce certain sounds. Dental implants can help restore speech clarity and improve communication skills.
Missing teeth can have a negative impact on self-confidence. Dental implants can help restore the natural appearance of the smile and boost self-esteem.
