Why are implants so popular with celebrities?
The popularity of implants among celebrities can be attributed to the following advantages
- Highly esthetic
- I can chew like my own teeth.
- Relatively easy self-care
- No damage to healthy teeth.
- Less impact on pronunciation
- Less frequent hospital visits
An implant implants an artificial tooth root into the jaw bone, thus creating an artificial tooth as one independent tooth, just like a natural tooth. (*)
Also, because the shape and color of the teeth can be freely chosen,Can be finished to give you whiter, cleaner teeth while aligning your teethIt is.
*If the number of implants is large, the number of implant placements may be reduced and a denture with multiple teeth connected (e.g., All-on-4) may be used.
I can chew like my own teeth.
Because there is no gum covering like dentures,By far the least discomfort when chewing.It is.
Being able to chew like one's own teeth is a major benefit of implants.
Relatively easy self-care
Regular maintenance at the dentist's office is necessary to ensure the longevity of the implants.
However, care other than regular visits to the dentist's office,Basically, just brush and floss as usual.
In the case of dentures, in addition to tooth brushing, care with denture cleaners is required separately, which inevitably increases the amount of time and effort required in terms of self-care.
No damage to healthy teeth.
Implants are used to implant an artificial tooth root in the area of a missing tooth,It avoids damaging other healthy teeth.
In order to hold these in the mouth, denture bridges require the shaving of healthy teeth to make grooves for the dentures to hook into, or the shaving of a full set of teeth to cover them.
Especially in the case of bridges, the amount of cutting is large and the burden of biting tends to be concentrated on the healthy teeth, which may shorten the life of the teeth that have been removed in the future.
Less impact on pronunciation
Performers have many opportunities to speak in public, and if you are a singer, inability to pronounce a word well when singing is fatal.
Teeth have the ability to make sounds, and the placement of foreign objects such as dentures can interfere with pronunciation.
Implants can replace missing teeth in a manner similar to natural teeth,Less impact on pronunciation and less impact on workThis is considered to be the case.
Less frequent hospital visits
Implants require several months for the artificial tooth root to bond with the jawbone, which means that treatment takes longer, but requires fewer visits than orthodontic treatment, which requires monthly visits for one to three years.
In addition, the surgery to fill the artificial tooth root is completed in one or two days, and a temporary tooth is placed immediately,By far the fastest time and number of visits to the hospital to achieve a level of appearance that allows for public appearances.It is.
However, it is better to keep as many healthy teeth as possible,It is not recommended to remove all teeth and use implants to align teeth.
The celebrities introduced in this article did not pull out their healthy teeth from the beginning to get implants in order to straighten their teeth, but chose implants as a choice of ceramics done for aesthetic purposes or to replace teeth lost due to decay.
Healthy teeth are most important. Even though implants are close to natural teeth, they do not perfectly replicate natural teeth.
Dangerous to think that it is easy to pull out and use implants.So, be careful.
Implants have their share of failures.
Implants are very attractive because they are highly esthetic and allow people to chew like their own teeth, but they can also fail.
- After surgery, the implant did not bond well with the jawbone
- Periodontal infection around the implant, resulting in implant periodontitis.
- Swelling, pain, or numbness that does not go away
- Artificial tooth cracked.

Implants, popular with celebrities, are an option for missing teeth.
Implants are recommended as an option when teeth are lost for any reason because they are less uncomfortable and cause less damage to healthy teeth than dentures or bridges.
