Why You Should Get Dental Implants
You would be surprised to know that a lot of people who do end up losing a tooth or two actually do not get them replaced with dental implants. Now while some people might be thinking of saving up costs, we are going to go over why even if you have to be smart with your money, you should look into getting your teeth replaced with an implant instead of leaving an open empty space in your mouth. There are a lot of benefits to having a crown put in and we will touch on some of them.
So from a medical perspective one of the biggest reasons for you to get the tooth replaced with a crown is because it can actually begin affecting your jaw bone and cause you to lose your bone density in your jaw. The reason for this is that the tooth is connected to the jaw in a way that when you bite down its helps stimulate the jaw and keeps the bone there active. Without the receptions from the tooth pressing down on the jaw and providing stimulation you will end up losing the area of jaw bone under your tooth. This will cause general weakness in your mouth and generally will feel very strange throughout. The deterioration can affect the rest of the mouth too so it is best to get an implant with a rod put in so that the chewing stimulation can be provided.
You will also be able to speak normally again. Our teeth are very important in our ability to speak and many of the sounds we make would not be possible without the tongue hitting the teeth. By replacing any missing teeth with dental implants you will be able to speak properly again.
