Studies Prove That Dental Implants Improve Quality of Life
It’s not just our opinion that dental implants improve quality of life, it’s also proven in studies.
It’s no surprise that when it comes to tooth replacement options, dental implants are better than any other choice. A study published in the Journal of International Dentistry shows that people with dental implants report a higher quality of life than those with any other restoration.
The new study compares the satisfaction people had with different treatments used following tooth loss. The study population consisted of 237 women who had lost one or more adjacent teeth. 64 got dental implants for the missing teeth, 60 got dental bridges, 47 got removable dentures, and 66 got no replacement. The women were given a 23-question survey that rated satisfaction with many aspects of their life. These included their work, health, emotional state, and sex lives.
Overall, women with dental implants reported the highest satisfaction with their lives, while those with dental bridges reported the second highest satisfaction. Dentures led to better satisfaction than getting no restoration.
Women with dental implants also reported the highest satisfaction in the emotional and sexual area while those with no restorations were the lowest in this area. Researchers also noted that satisfaction with the aesthetic results is as important as chewing function.
