Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are the ideal solution for restoring missing teeth. Whether you need to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants provide a more permanent solution than any other type of restoration. Furthermore, for patients struggling with ill-fitting or loose dentures, dental implants can literally change lives, enabling these patients to become comfortable and more confident when eating, speaking, or just smiling.
Here are the top ten reasons one would consider implants.
Dental Implants are the next best thing to healthy, natural teeth. Strong and stable, a dental implant restores a lost tooth so that it looks, feels, fits and functions like a natural tooth.
Dental Implants are built to last and are a long-term solution. Tooth-supported bridges, on average, only last five to seven years. Dental implants may need periodic adjustments but they can last a lifetime when properly placed and cared for over time.
No more embarrassment! We know how a smile can affect our self-esteem and the quality of our life. Freedom is restored with implants. There is no need to stay home or feel uncomfortable about your smile.
Retain your natural face shape, and smile. A face without teeth can sag and appear sunken and sad. Dental implants allow you to maintain the natural shape of your face and smile.
Leaving empty spaces in your mouth after losing teeth can lead to the loss and deterioration of some of your jawbone. The resulting loss of bone, will decrease the strength and firmness of the bone that can lead to further health complications. Dental implants are the only dental restoration option that preserves the bone and and helps to stimulate bone growth.
Keep your teeth in your mouth – not in a cup. ENOUGH SAID!
Clicking teeth are not appealing. Have you ever noticed that denture wearers often have a clicking sound with they speak. Not so with dental implants, which function like natural teeth.
Better nutrition and enjoyment of food. Unlike with removable dentures, with implants you can experience the full taste of food with full range of motion when chewing.
Implants stay put. Dentures may slip when you eat, talk, smile, laugh, kiss, yawn or cough, so that you have to “reposition” them back into place in the mouth. Dental implants are fixed in place and fuse naturally with your jawbone. Implants won’t move, click or shift.
Keep your existing teeth. Dental implants are placed into the spot where your missing tooth root was, without impacting healthy teeth. They also help prevent healthy, adjacent teeth from shifting as they would if an empty space were left for an extended period of time.
