Retain And Expand Your Customer Base By Becoming A Dental Implant Expert

March 30, 2022

When patients come to you for the replacement of missing teeth, you can choose from several options. One option that is better than the rest is dental implants. Why is that? Here are some amazing benefits dental implants offer and what makes them the best option in the long run.

Bone Loss Prevention

When a patient loses teeth, bone mass is also lost in the jaw. To maintain its mass, the jawbone requires stimulation which it gets by connecting to the teeth. Dental implants are the only way to replace missing teeth, restoring jaw bone stimulation that helps prevent bone loss.

Prevents Changes In facial structure

A good amount of support for facial structure comes from the teeth. When teeth are lost, the support is compromised, causing changes to the face shape, and the patient may appear older. Dental implants provide facial support similar to natural teeth and prevent changes to the shape.

Bite Force Restoration

Dental implants are permanently fitted into the jaw by titanium posts that act as tooth roots. This allows the patient to bite with nearly the same amount of force as with natural teeth. No other missing tooth substitution can retain the same bite force as they aren’t anchored in the gums.

No Speech Issues

Replacement alternatives like dentures can make it difficult to pronounce words correctly. Dental implants function similarly to natural teeth, allowing patients to speak correctly and naturally.

No Embarrassing Slippage

Dentures can shift or slip inside your mouth, which can make individuals way too conscious, and they may hesitate to speak, laugh or eat when in public. This isn’t the issue with dental implants, as they are anchored in the jaw and don’t move.

No Tooth Decay

Regular care of artificial teeth is necessary to avoid bacteria buildup in the mouth that can cause infections. Dental implants are made of materials that are prone to cavities. Implants give you the freedom to enjoy your life after having your missing teeth replaced without worrying too much about the appliance in your mouth.

Prevents Misalignment Issues

A patient with a missing tooth will end up with a gap in the mouth. The teeth adjacent to the empty socket may start to move out of their positions, causing misalignment. Dental implants fill that void and help maintain a straighter smile.
