4 Reasons Why Dental Implants Are So Popular

If you are someone who has damaged, broken, or missing teeth, then this can generate a number of problems. It can be harder to eat food, your smile is compromised, you might feel a degree of pain, and overall it can negatively impact your levels of self-esteem. Of course, there are many solutions to these problems which include dental crowns, dentures, and, but here at DaVinci Smiles we recommend to book in a consult for dental implants.

We are not saying any of the other solutions are poor options, but simply that dental implants offer the most advantages, they are a long term solution, rather than a temporary one, and they have also proved to be extremely popular with those patients who have opted for dental implants over any other way of resolving their dental issues. Here are 4 reasons why dental implants are so popular.

How Dental Implants Can Improve Your Quality Of Life

There are many elements which combine to provide you with the quality of life which you have. These include your finances, your career, your family, your social life, and what many would consider the most important, your health. Under the umbrella of health, we should include not just your physical well-being but also your mental health and your emotional health.

Whilst not everyone would immediately think of dental issues as a source of negativity that might harm your quality of life, were you to hear some of the anguish which patients who come to see us at DaVinci Smiles have experienced as they tell us what they have been going through, you would soon accept that it does.

With teeth which are missing, damaged, decayed, and broken, there can be impacts on all three health areas, namely physical, mental, and emotional. Specific examples for physical include the pain which might be experienced from teeth which are damaged, plus the inability to properly chew food which can have an impact on a person’s digestive system.

Why Dental Implants Can Restore Your Smile To Its Former Beauty

Whether we love and need them because it is one of the first facial expressions babies make, the fact that it indicates that someone is pleased to see us, or we have one when we are happy is all open to argument, but nobody can deny a smile isn’t something positive in our lives. Every painting, photograph, or video we see where one or people are smiling is going to give us far more pleasure and good feelings than any that show frowns and scowls.

With our smiles being so cherished, it is little wonder that when our own smile is compromised because we have issues with our teeth, that our feelings can range from annoyance and disappointment at one end of the scale, through to outright embarrassment. In the worst cases, social phobias can occur which can become debilitating to the person suffering from them as they stop going out for fear that someone will see their ‘ruined’ smile.

7 Care Tips You Should Follow After Your Dental Implants Procedure

Whether you are considering dental implants or already have appointments booked with DaVinci Smiles for your dental implant procedures, it is important to know what you should expect afterward. Having dental implants involves a minor surgical procedure, and whilst you will be given a mild anaesthetic so that you feel no discomfort or pain, there are several important care tips you should follow after the procedure, to aid recovery and minimise any subsequent discomfort.

Do Not Touch The Surgical Wounds

Although this might seem obvious it is important for us to emphasise the need for you to avoid touching or disturbing any of the surgical wounds after you leave our surgery, and in the hours after you get home. Apart from no touching during these first few hours do not rinse your mouth or brush your teeth, and also resist the urge to spit if you feel you have excess saliva building up.

5 Reasons Why You Should Not Be Fearful About Dental Implant Surgery

Dental implants have become an extremely popular option for many patients with this attributable, not only to the fact that dental implants look like a person’s natural teeth, but because they are also durable, and thus their longevity is greatly enhanced compared to many of the other available options that might be considered like veneers and dentures.

With dental implants being embedded in the jawbone, and the screws which hold them there being made from titanium, one of the toughest and most corrosion-resistant metals on the planet, it is little wonder they are being seen as the ideal long term solution to lost, broken, and damaged teeth.

At DaVinci Smiles, as it is the case at any reputable dental implant centre, in order for a patient to have dental implants fitted, a minor surgical procedure has to take place. It is at the point of discovering this that some patients’ emotions start to switch from glee and excitement, to dread and possibly even fear.
