What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
No diet restrictions –there are dietary restrictions with other missing teeth options like dentures. With dental implants, there are no restrictions on what you can eat since they are durable, stable, and permanent.
Closest thing to 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.
Dental implants are durable and can last a lifetime – other options for missing teeth, such as dentures, will eventually need replaced or repaired. That cost can add up over a lifetime. When properly placed and cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime.
No need to damage healthy teeth to get dental implants – 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 in the space where the missing tooth is located leaving your healthy teeth alone.
Removes embarrassment from social situations – removable options for missing teeth oftentimes slip or do not fit correctly. 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 do not slip thus making speaking a lot easier.
Improves shape of your 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.
Avoids bone loss and gum recession – if you’re missing a tooth or multiple teeth, that void can cause bone loss and deterioration in your jawbone as well as gum recession. Dental implants are the only option for missing teeth that stimulates the jaw bone which helps stimulate bone growth. This will prevent bone loss.
