Think dental implants are just about appearances? Five health benefits of having implants fitted

Cosmetic dentistry is all about appearance, right?


It is a common misconception held by many dental patients that any cosmetic procedure is only going to improve a person's physical appearance; this is simply not the case.

While facial aesthetics procedures may offer temporary relief from unsightly wrinkles, cosmetic dentistry offers much more than a whiter or straighter smile.


Remarkably, there are many real health benefits to undertaking certain types of cosmetic dental work, that go far beyond simply improving your self-confidence.


At High Dental Implants Melbourne, our dentist team is all too aware of the many associated health benefits behind many of the cosmetic procedures that we can offer to our patients. One of our more common procedures, dental implants in Melbourne for example, offers much more to our patients than a simple gap filler.


Want to know what health benefits dental implants in Melbourne can offer you? Read on to find out our top five!


Better digestion


We often forget that our teeth are the starting point of our digestive system.


When we lose teeth, gaps form in our mouths and our gum lines inevitably recede, as they are no longer supporting the root of a tooth.


Gaps in teeth often cause an inadequate technique of chewing and grinding down food. While this may not sound like a big issue, it can lead to acid reflux, poor digestion, issues with absorption of nutrients and excess gas.


When you have dental implants in Melbourne, correct chewing techniques are restored, allowing for better digestion and nutrient absorption.


Lowered risk of periodontal disease


Those gaps in your teeth will not only wreak havoc with your digestion.


Gaps in your teeth are not only harder to clean effectively, but they are also a magnet for plaque and bacteria to accumulate.


Excess amounts of plaque in an area without a tooth may not seem like a problem, but it has been linked to periodontal, or gum disease, which causes inflammation, pain, and tooth loss.


Implants fill these gaps and, with correct oral hygiene, can help stave off periodontal disease.


Reduced risk of cavities


Similarly, reduced gaps equate to reduced cavities.


The backs of teeth are harder to clean at home and, if there is a large gap behind a tooth, bacteria can build up seemingly undetected, leading to cavity formation.


Once again, an implant closes the gap and stops bacteria from attaching to the back of your teeth.


Jawbone regeneration


As mentioned before, when teeth are lost, the gum line and jawbone recede, as they are no longer supporting a tooth.


This can cause destabilisation of any natural surrounding teeth, leading to protrusions, movement, and even tooth loss!


Implants promote jawbone regrowth and can help stabilise any surrounding loose or moving teeth. Perfect!


Reduction of grinding and bruxism


Do you have a row of teeth missing?


Loss of a number of teeth has been linked to nocturnal grinding, which can cause neck pain, headaches, and migraines. Implants restore correct alignment and stop these issues altogether.
