Dental Implants: Combining Cosmetics With Function
Dental Implants are not often associated with cosmetic dentistry and are more commonly linked to restorative dentistry because they restore a patient’s missing teeth. However, dental implants also can be used for cosmetic dental benefits because they work to create a smile for the patient that is more aesthetically pleasing. Also, dental implants while cosmetically appealing can improve function.
Cosmetic Advantages of Dental Implants
There are quite a few cosmetic advantages of dental implants. The first advantage of dental implants is that the material they are made out of is a good quality. The second is that your dental implants work to prevent the jawbone from wearing down. These cosmetic advantages are important because they allow the patient to maintain the bone in their mouth and in turn prevent their facial structure from altering. Also, if needed patients can have bone grafting provided to help support their dental implants.
In terms of function when a patient has missing teeth, they often experience difficulty with performing basic tasks such as chewing or biting. However, with dental implants because they are designed to fit, feel, and function just like your natural teeth the patient no longer has these issues. Even more so the patient is able to regain full functionality and enjoy the foods they once were unable to chew or bite.
