Most people want a beautiful smile, but for a number of reasons, it’s not always possible without a little help from cosmetic dentistry. If you’ve experienced dental health issues and aren’t currently achieving your optimal smile, dental implants may be the right solution for you.
Let’s take a look at some benefits of dental implants:
Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. If you’re missing a tooth or several teeth, dental implants can fill in the gaps and give you a full smile again. Our patients’ confidence and self-esteem often improve the moment they look in the mirror after their implants have been put into place.
Missing or loose teeth can impair your speech. While you may have gotten used to impaired speech over time, it may actually be impeding your ability to communicate with people optimally. Dental implants remove the worry associated with poorly fitting dentures or missing teeth, enabling you to speak freely and confidently to anyone you come into contact with.
Enhanced Oral Health
Unlike some other cosmetic dentistry options, dental implants don’t require the removal or alteration of other teeth. This means the teeth surrounding your implant will be unaffected. Once your implant is put into place, you can go about brushing and flossing as you normally would.
Dental implants are designed to last for a very long time—sometimes, they even last an entire lifetime. They become a part of you, so you don’t have to worry about replacing or repairing them on a regular basis. You can simply consider your dental implants as your own teeth.
With removable dentures, there’s a lot of upkeep (and often, discomfort) involved. With dental implants, you don’t have to worry about removing them, cleaning them, or caring for them (beyond standard brushing and flossing).
Prevention of Bone Loss
Empty spaces in your mouth after tooth loss can cause your jawbone to deteriorate. Because dental implants adhere to your bone structure, they replace lost teeth in a way that dentures can’t, enabling your jaw to sustain or stimulate bone growth.
