Dental implants: rebuilding your smile after tooth loss
Whether you have lost one, several or all of your teeth, there are consequences for your dental health and often your confidence too. You may find yourself hesitant to smile for fear of people noticing unsightly gaps in your teeth. You may also notice changes in your speech or difficulty chewing your food. If dentures or bridges don’t appeal, you’re in luck because at Elite Perio we offer dental implants in Perth.
Dental implants are the most reliable way to restore missing teeth. Here’s why:
They mimic what you’ve lost
Dental implants act as artificial tooth roots, unlike dentures or bridges that only replace the lost crown of your tooth. This means you get the most complete restoration of your lost tooth, from top to bottom.
They work with your body
Dental implants in Perth and elsewhere are made of titanium, which is a biocompatible metal. This means when the implants are placed into your jaw they encourage the growth of new bone around them, working with your body to secure themselves into position.
They protect your dental health
When tooth loss goes untreated or is remedied with dentures or bridges, the underlying jawbone starts to deteriorate. This is because it no longer receives vital stimulation from the clashing together of your teeth. Dental implants prevent jawbone degeneration as they sit within the jawbone, ensuring it gets the stimulation it needs. This means you won’t have to deal with a loss in facial structure and the sunken-cheeked appearance often seen in long-term denture users.
They provide superior stability
Dentures sit on top of your gums, relying on suction and sometimes denture adhesives to stay put. However a tough steak or crunchy apple can still cause them to shift about. Dental implants are firmly rooted within the jawbone giving you the freedom to eat what you like, without worrying about your replacement teeth coming loose.
