The Benefits of Dental Implants
Look and functions exactly like your natural teeth: A dental implant will look, feel, fit, and function just like your natural teeth. They are strong and stable and truly the next best thing to your real teeth.
Improves the appearance of the smile and lower face: A face without teeth will appear sunken and can add years to your appearance. Dental implants help keep the natural shape of your face and lower jaw area.
Helps avoid bone loss associated with tooth loss: If you’re missing a tooth or multiple teeth, that void can cause bone loss and deterioration in your jawbone. Dental implants are the only option for missing teeth that stimulates the jaw bone which helps stimulate bone growth. This will prevent bone loss.
Superior durability and longevity: Other options for missing teeth, such as dentures, will eventually need to be replaced. That cost can add up over a lifetime. When properly placed and cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Improves speech: Removable options for missing teeth oftentimes slip or do not fit correctly. This makes the simple task of talking hard and embarrassing. Dental implants are permanent and do not slip thus making speaking a lot easier.
Patients can eat food without restrictions: Removable options for missing teeth have dietary restrictions. With dental implants, there are no restrictions on what you can eat since they are durable, stable, and permanent.
Avoids further damage or decay of remaining healthy teeth: A tooth-supported dental bridge requires grinding down your healthy teeth in order to provide a place to attach the bridge. You’re essentially damaging your healthy teeth in order to provide a replacement for the missing tooth. A dental implant is surgically placed only space where the missing tooth is located leaving your healthy teeth alone.
No worry about dentures slipping or falling out: The constant worry that your restoration may fall out while talking or eating is taxing. This leads to feeling uncomfortable in public or around other people. Dental implants are permanent and release a person from that constant worry.
