One of the downsides of aging is dealing with aches and pains and a wide range of other medical conditions. However, the most challenging part of aging for most seniors is losing their teeth, both from a cosmetic and health standpoint.
If you’re battling with missing teeth, or perhaps you’ve been wearing dentures for years, the good news is that there’s a permanent solution – a dental implant. The best thing with dental implants is that it looks and feels natural and even improve your smile and facial bone structure.
The benefits of dental implants cannot be overemphasized. Such as:
- Prevent bone loss associated with missing teeth
- Sturdy and long-lasting
- It feels and looks natural
Why dental implants are desirable for seniors
You’re likely to have some issues with one or more of your teeth during your golden age. But, whether you lost them through an accident or tooth decay, the fact remains that you have a very long-lasting option that you can use.
If used well, they will last for the rest of your life. Here are some more benefits of dental implants and why you need to get them
Improves appearance and self-esteem
Your teeth are an essential component when it comes to your appearance. When you’re missing a tooth, you’re most likely to find it hard to smile for fear that people will notice. As a result, you become self-conscious, which eats away at your self-esteem and confidence.
Also, a missing tooth could make you look older than your actual age since your facial structure collapses inward due to the missing tooth. But with a dental implant, you regain your smile, self-esteem, and confidence.
Unlike dentures and temporary bridges, dental implants are permanent and can last for the rest of your life. They don’t need to be removed, realigned, or adjusted, unlike dentures and bridges.
Months after your dental implants, your implant looks and feels like your regular teeth, without any discomfort. No one would be able to tell they are implanted unless you told them, making it an excellent choice for you.
Speaking and eating improves
One of the downsides of dentures is that they tend to move in your mouth when you speak or eat your favorite meal. It’s a deal breaker. But with dental implants, you speak and eat as you usually do without any discomfort.
