Can I Get Dental Implants If I’m Suffering From Gum Disease?

If you’re considering full mouth dental implants, it’s likely that you have many questions. Will they limit what you can eat? Are they easy to care for? Will they look natural?

To answer these questions and more, we’ve put together a list of the top seven benefits of dental implants, so you know what to expect if you decide to go ahead with the procedure.

What are the top benefits of dental implants?

1.    Dental implants look like natural teeth

If you choose EvoDental for your full mouth dental implants, your teeth will look completely natural. It’s the closest you’ll get, both aesthetically and functionally, to having your natural teeth back.

This is because dental implants are screwed into the jawbone in just the same way as your natural teeth would be positioned. They sit entirely flush with the gumline, making it practically impossible to tell the difference between dental implants and natural teeth.

2.    Dental implants act and feel like real teeth

Not only do dental implants look just like natural teeth, but they behave like them, too. Because they are firmly secured to your jawbone, this gives strength and function that other options, such as dentures, simply cannot compete with.

Because they are so secure, you will be able to eat all the foods you’ve been craving after your mouth is fully healed. Fancy a crisp, juicy apple? Go for it! A prime, tender steak? No problem!

3.    Dental implants are low maintenance

It’s important to note that dental implants can still attract plaque and tartar, so without proper care you could end up with gum disease. Luckily, they’re very easy to care for. Just brush thoroughly twice a day and floss your dental implants in exactly the same way as you would with natural teeth.

4.    Dental implants are more cost-effective than other options

They may seem expensive, but when compared to other tooth restoration options, dental implants are surprisingly cost-effective.

Unlike some alternatives that may need to be regularly replaced, dental implants should last you for the rest of your life if you look after them properly. Therefore, they’ll actually cost you less in the long run.

5.    You can still get full mouth dental implants if you’ve not got much jawbone

When you’ve lost some teeth, the bone around the area begins to degrade. If you’ve lost several teeth, this degradation is the reason why your dentist may have told you that you don’t have enough jawbone for dental implants.

However, here at EvoDental, we have developed a pioneering technique called the EvoSolution. This technique, which is unique to us, allows us to help patients whose jawbone has degraded significantly.

It is an advanced alternative to all-on-four dental implants, and it works for those with little bone because we add a further two implants in the upper jaw. These can be placed in the nasalus, zygomatic and pterygoid areas, depending upon the needs of the patient.

6.    Dental implants can actually help to restore lost bone mass

The reason that you start to lose bone mass when you’ve lost a tooth, or multiple teeth, is because there is no root in place to encourage the strengthening of the jawbone.

Dental implants are screwed directly into the bone, taking the place of your lost teeth. This stimulates bone growth in the same way that a natural tooth root would. The process is called osseointegration and can help to prevent future bone loss as well as growing new bone.

7.    Full mouth dental implants restore your self-confidence

By far, the best benefit of full mouth dental implants is the impact that they will have on your self-confidence. Imagine being able to eat, speak and laugh without covering your mouth or worrying about your dentures moving about.

That dream could become a reality. Here at EvoDental, we’re firm believers that cost should not stand in the way of anyone’s self-confidence, or their ability to eat and speak effectively. That’s why we have a range of finance options available, to ensure that our EvoSolution is affordable for all.
