Using dental implants for any age can be considered as a smart option for tooth restoration. The person may have been born without teeth from the beginning, or the tooth problem may have been caused by an injury and, during an accident, decay, and so on. Sometimes it is the changes and developments during development (especially childhood) that cause the need to repair and replace teeth.
Children lose their baby teeth by the age of about 6 years. If the baby does not have a permanent replacement tooth for any reason, the baby tooth will remain empty and a replacement will be needed.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
There are many benefits to using dental implants, the most important of which are as follows. Advantages that make dental implants preferable to other methods:
1. Dental implants have a beautiful appearance and high efficiency
The implant has a very natural and beautiful appearance. Plus, it sits well in place of the tooth you lost and works just like a natural tooth. Dental implants are in most cases so hassle-free and comfortable that you completely forget that the implant is placed in your mouth. The way you treat a dental implant will be just like a regular tooth.
This means, for example, that you use a toothbrush and floss to take care of it, like a normal tooth. There is no need to open and clean it like a denture. In addition to its natural function, the natural appearance of the implant allows you to smile as safely as other people. It also preserves the natural appearance of your face and the structure of your jawbone
2. They are durable and have a long life
Dental implants are generally designed to stay in the mouth for a long time and are somewhat lifelong. If a dental implant is well cared for, it will remain in the mouth for decades without any particular problem and will not cause any problems. But other methods of tooth restoration are not like this. For example, dentures or bridges need to be replaced after a few years (for example, every 5 or 10 years). Of course, as long as you take good care of it. Replacing it requires both more time and money and has its own problems.
3. Increases your self-confidence
Dental implants work in such a way that they stand firmly in place. This means that you will no longer have trouble moving or making noise when talking or laughing or eating. Problems that you are constantly dealing with when using dentures or bridges. In addition, the way you talk does not change with a dental implant. In fact, most people who use bridges or dentures have difficulty pronouncing different letters.
4. Dental implants protect facial bones and other teeth
When one or more of your teeth fall out and become empty, there may not seem to be much of a problem, but the truth is that this empty space can damage other teeth as well as other problems such as jaw bone loss.
Becomes. There is only one solution that can prevent the jaw bone tissue from degenerating and disturbing the position of the adjacent teeth, and that is the dental implant. Dental implants stimulate bone tissue and thus prevent it from growing and degenerating.
Therefore, it should be said that after the loss of your tooth, you should have an implant as soon as possible to prevent the loss of bone tissue under the lost tooth. Another advantage of using an implant is that the implant does not work on adjacent teeth. In the method of using a dental bridge or denture, adjacent teeth must be shaved and shaped so that the bases of the bridge or denture are placed on them. This is while the implant is placed directly in the jawbone itself and the adjacent teeth no longer need to be involved.
5. High success rate
If the use of dental implants is done in a planned manner and then good care measures are taken, the probability of success of this method will be very high.
The issue of success rate may not be a categorical method that you should keep in mind as a criterion when choosing a repair method, but you should know that with the advances that are made every day and the pervasiveness of various technologies, implant success rate is higher and In fact, it is less likely to cause further complications and problems than other methods.
