implants sound great on paper, but how do they compare to regular teeth?
you’re considering full-arch dental implants, one of the most important but
often overlooked factors is how they feel daily. After all, you can read all the
statistics about them you want, but none of that matters in comparison to the
experience you have with your new smile.
dig deeper into this, let’s look at three of the most important things to
consider when comparing them to regular teeth:
they’re put into place, full-arch dental implants look and feel like regular
teeth. Unlike other teeth replacement solutions that can become loose or fall
out over time, full-arch implants remain securely fixed in place.
means that you never have to worry about the embarrassment of losing your
teeth—which you’ll appreciate especially if you’ve worn or currently wear
dentures! It also means that they’ll feel great in use. To put it simply, they
are made to feel so natural in the mouth that no one will be able to tell that
you have a full-arch implant. In fact, they feel so real that you’ll likely
forget you have them yourself!
implants are simple in their design, only consisting of three major parts—the
post, the abutment, and the crown. To properly understand how implants can
effectively function like natural teeth, let’s look more closely at what each
of these components do.
Post: You can think of the post like the
foundation of a house. It keeps your implant securely in place and is
painlessly and securely inserted to support the crown.
Abutment: The abutment is the screw that connects
the post to the crown. You can think of them as the scaffolding of a house that
is built off the posts, which provide a solid foundation. The abutments ensure
that your teeth remain secure and aligned just like natural teeth.
Crown: The crown is like the tooth itself.
They are generally made from either ceramic or porcelain fused to metal and let
you chew naturally without the fear of cavities (although maintenance around
the implants is still necessary).
of the most exciting parts about full-arch implants is how closely they mimic
the day-to-day performance of natural teeth. Full-arch implants increase
confidence and allow you to do the everyday things that people with full sets
of teeth take for granted, such as:
the full range of foods, you love— be it the tangy-sweet crispness of an apple,
a warm, tender bite of steak, or the satisfying, salty crunch of pretzels. No
more sacrificing the food you love!
you communicate more clearly to your friends and family without having to make
hand gestures to cover your mouth, so you never have to repeat yourself or feel
like you’re burdening your loved ones in everyday conversations.
of course, restoring your smile and your reason to smile with the freedom to
live unashamed with a full mouth of terrific teeth!
it is because of the feel they have, the function they provide, or the fulfilment
they give you, full-arch implants are a safe and effective way to restore the
beauty and utility of your missing teeth now and for the rest of your life.
