Now that you have lost or are about to lose some teeth, you are wondering whether you really want to invest all that money in dental implants in Erskineville. It seems such an expense. Is it really worth it when there are so many other things that need your financial attention? At Healthy Smile Centre, we think that if you can have dental implants in Erskineville, they offer so many great benefits that they are more than worth the investment.
Keep your diet varied, interesting and nutritious
The main thing about dental implants in Erskineville is that they give a firm anchoring for the teeth. The implants are embedded into the jawbone and because of this they give as much chewing power as natural teeth, which can be about 97kg in an adult male. Dentures give about a quarter of this, and while fixed bridgework offers more, they do so at the expense of neighbouring teeth, which are ground down to act as buttresses for the bridgework. Dental implants allow you to eat a wide, varied and nutritious diet including chewy, crunchy and bitty foods like meat, raw vegetables, and nuts.
Maintain the health of your jaw
Having dental implants embedded in your jaw means that your jawbone will continue to renew itself. The jawbone needs constant stimulation to do so. This is naturally provided by tooth roots trembling gently in their sockets every time they meet with their opposite partners. Tooth restorations that don’t provide this result in the jawbone shrinking in size and density over a fairly short space of time.
Dental implants in Erskineville are easy to maintain. They just need careful twice-daily brushing and flossing to get rid of plaque, combined with regular hygienist deep cleanings.
Dental implants last for at least 15 years. The porcelain crowns may well need replacing but the implants themselves can last for a lifetime.
Value for money
They may cost a lot to start with, but the long lifetimes of dental implants mean that, compared with other restoration methods, over the years, they can work out to be the same price or even cheaper.
