Losing a tooth or set of teeth due to periodontal infections or accidents or injury can be traumatizing since missing teeth takes away the confidence to smile. Smile Mint Studio, a dental clinic in Delhi provides dental implant placement since it is considered one of the top dental replacement services due to its longevity and normalizing the functioning of the teeth structure. 

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are medically certified devices that are surgically placed to restore the ability to chew and speak and also enhance the appearance of the teeth’ structure. Implants act as a supporting anchor for dental restorations such as dentures, crowns or bridges. 

Implants surgery increases the overall health of the person since the missing tooth takes away the ability to chew the favorite foods and also resolves the speech issues that occur due to the missing tooth. The dental implants consist of medically approved titanium screws accompanied by an abutment that holds the dental crown attached to the top layer of the implants. 

When Do You Need Dental Implants?

Missing Tooth or Teeth

The loss of a tooth or teeth may happen due to many reasons such as bad oral health, accidents or injuries. The implant does not look fake so it is one of the best options for tooth replacement. 

Loosened Dentures 

The dentures are at risk of falling off their place most of the time making it embarrassing to the one wearing it and also to the onlookers since it may hinder even talking and eating also. Implants are a better option since they do not hinder speech and eating habits.

Removal of Infected Tooth 

When the infection spread is too severe the tooth cannot be saved and have to be surgically extracted making the space empty. The implants are a stronger and more durable option in such a situation. 

Loosened Dental Bridge 

At times the dental bridges become loose due to different reasons causing problems for the teeth activities. Replacing bridges with implants will be one of the best decisions for oral health. 

The Facial Appearance is Sunk 

The dentures or bridges do not stimulate the growth of the jawbone making the nerves of the jaws regress causing the face to look sunken. The jawbone is stimulated due to the presence of implants that help in regrowing the jaw bone keeping the facial bones intact and appearance also beautiful. 

Messed up with Adhesives 

If you are opting for dentures then each time they have to be removed for cleaning and at times the adhesives have to be used again to place them properly. Using adhesives often and sticking and removing can be time-consuming and makes the task messier. Implants are neither removed nor need any adhesives to keep them in their place making it an easier option. 

Cracked or Broken Tooth 

Due to any injuries or accidents the tooth can be severely cracked or broken and retaining them can be impossible. If the damages are extended to the tooth pulp then the infected pulp also has to be removed from the tooth. Under such situations replacing it with implants will be advantageous. 

Biting and Chewing Issues

Missing tooth leads to various issues and a prominent issue includes biting and chewing issues since you have to avoid many foods since the missing tooth area does not support some of the consumption of the food. Implants will restore the chewing ability that gives the freedom to enjoy all types of food.
