Have you dealt with an uncomfortable smile for years? Are you unsatisfied about the condition and shape of your teeth? Does it prevent you from smiling and openly communicating with people? You are not alone. Many Americans are self conscious of their smiles. This can affect many aspects of your life, including your career, social relationships and confidence levels. Discolored teeth, broken or missing teeth and poorly aligned or spaced teeth all lead to people being uncomfortable with their smiles. Many adults have accepted that there is not much they can do to correct their teeth at this point. Braces last for many years and tend to not be socially acceptable on adults. However, there is a solution. Dental implants provide adults with a better looking smile and it does not require the lengthy time that braces do.
Most adults believe that a good smile is important. In fact, nearly three quarters (74%) of adults feel an unattractive smile can hurt their career success. It actually can. A poor smile often leads to a lowered amount of self confidence. You are less likely to speak when you want to, because of fear of showing your teeth. You are less like to smile and may appear to be less friendly, because of a fear to smile. People may look at you differently, all because you are simply not comfortable to smile. A full mouth of dental implants can solve that, providing you with a brand new smile that allows you to smile and speak when you want to.
About 15% of the edentulous population has dentures made each year. Dentures may not be ideal because they have to be removed and cleaned regularly. They may appear unreal and can be uncomfortable in the mouth. A full mouth of dental implants, however, can provide you with a full mouth restoration. They tend to be more comfortable than dentures, as they are specifically fitted for the shape of your mouth. A process goes into ensuring that they look real, fit your mouth and that you are comfortable with them.
Dental implants are expected to become more and more popular over the next few years, as dental patients learn about all of the benefits that they offer. In fact, the estimated US and European market for dental implants is expected to reach $4.2 billion by 2022. Dental implants are expected to be the top choice for improving the look of the entire smile. However, individual dental implants are also available. Those dental patients who are unhappy with just one or a few teeth also have the option of a dental implant.
As mentioned, a lot goes into the design of your full mouth dental implants. A dental implants doctor will do a lot of tests on your mouth. This will provide them with information about the sizing and the spacing of your teeth. The tests and the images will be sent off to the dental implant laboratory. This is where your dental implants will be made. They will mold them to fit your mouth comfortably. They will match your current teeth, as close as possible. The same process goes for individual dental implants, as well. The cost of dental implants will depend on the type of material used for the implants, the amount of teeth needing implants and the design needed from the design lab.
Dental implants have become popular for many reasons. They are also expected to be one of the top choices for correcting an entire smile. People who are unhappy with their current smiles can have dental implants done. They can have just a couple teeth implanted, or an entire mouth. The dental implants are created to specifically fit into your mouth and to match your current teeth. This improves the comfort of the implants and makes them ideal over other teeth correction options.
