Want to close that gap in your smile but aren’t sure if oral implants are worth it?
When you come to Dublin 18 Dental Rooms, we will ensure that the dental implants Dublin we fit look as natural as possible, while also reducing the associated health issues that accompany having missing teeth.
So, with that in mind, what are some of the physical health advantages of having dental implants Dublin fitted?
How do missing teeth cause headaches?
When you sleep at night, the teeth on your 2 jaws rest together and, if there is an issue with misalignment or a gap, they can grind together to try and correct it.
As a result, come morning, you may experience an unpleasant headache or migraine and may feel unrested. With dental implants Dublin, your jaws will rest together correctly as you sleep and as you don’t need to remove them, any associated headaches or migraines that have plagued your sleep will soon be a thing of the past! Great!
Better oral health
If you have gaps in your smile, you are running a higher risk of developing plaque in these areas. Why? Because they are less likely to be brushed and areas on the adjacent teeth are also less likely to be cleaned properly.
Excess plaque can cause an array of issues with your teeth and gums, so by having oral implants fitted, you can permanently close those gaps and bypass the issue altogether.
Improved physical health
As in the above paragraph, gaps in your mouth often lead to a higher incidence of plaque.
And with a higher occurrence of plaque, you are more likely to develop gum disease, which can lead to secondary health complications.
Some of the more serious health issues include heart disease, increased cancer risks and strokes. By having oral implants placed, you will naturally lower the level of lingering plaque in your mouth and reduce the chances of these serious medical issues occurring.
It is easy to forget when talking about oral implants that our teeth are designed primarily to bite into and chew food.
And while other restoratives like dentures and bridges can aid in this, having gaps in your mouth can cause you to chew irregularly, thus leading to larger chunks of food hitting your stomach due to missing teeth. The end result is a higher incidence of acid reflux, heartburn and even indigestion.
With oral implants, you will not only receive a physically indistinguishable prosthetic to block a gap, but an aid to breaking down foods (whether they are hard or soft), thus eliminating all of these issues and more.
Prevents bone deterioration
When you have a tooth removed, the surrounding bone that was holding it in place begins to shrink back. As a result, your surrounding teeth may become misaligned or, in severe cases, even loose due to this. As oral implants are placed into your jawbone and are designed to fuse, they will help the surrounding bone to grow back and may even reverse signs of jawbone deterioration. This in turn can help to support surrounding natural teeth to stay aligned and will help your facial structure to stay symmetrical.
