Self-confidence is a very important aspect of a persons life; the lack of, or diminished, self-confidence can profoundly affect how a person conducts his/her daily life. Ones relationships with loved ones, and the people around, can also be affected by the lack of self-confidence. The inability to display confident smiles because of missing teeth or bad teeth can be a huge blow to a persons confidence level; this is the reason why we feel the need to provide as much valuable information about missing teeth solutions (through dental implants) as possible in the process, helping as many people as possible as well to overcome this particular challenge.
A person with no teeth will think twice (or even more!) before smiling, or even opening his or her mouth; this is due to the fear of being embarrassed by the state of ones teeth which is not something that can be easily discussed or shared with others. The prolonged absence of teeth will have a significant impact on a persons self-confidence, and can prevent a person from completely enjoying his or her daily life. Missing teeth solutions, such as dental implants, can bring back the confidence and enjoyment that a person has with his life and can bring back the sheer happiness of being able to smile confidently, once again.
Lets discuss first what dental implants are, before we proceed on their importance. In the field of dentistry, a dental implant made of strong titanium or titanium alloy is commonly a screw that in its simplest form takes the place of a root of a natural tooth. Implants are used to support a variety of restorations in the mouth. These can be fixed single teeth (crown) or groups of missing teeth (bridges). Implants can also be used to provide strong support and stability for removable appliances such as dentures so that the dentures are more stable, easier to manage and can provide more biting force and enjoyment. Dental implants involve a surgical placement phase and after a healing phase the teeth are made (Dental Crowns) and secured onto the dental implants.
Dental Implants can have many benefits which may include but is not limited to:
Replacing a single tooth without using adjacent teeth for support and thereby damaging them.
The above also applies to multiple missing teeth.
Restoration of function and therefore increase in pleasure of eating and socialising.
Having fixed teeth instead of removable dentures.
Eliminating dentures and therefore the problems associated with them e.g. loose and ill-fitting dentures, sore mouth, and personal relationship issues.
Enhanced confidence, self-image and self-esteem.
Enhanced aesthetics and smile.
