Millions of Americans experience tooth loss despite improvements in dental care. This is mostly due to periodontal disease, tooth decay, and injury. Bridges and dentures were the only options for missing teeth for many years. Today, however, dental implants are now available.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the replacement roots for missing teeth. Implants are a solid foundation for permanent or removable replacement teeth. They can be made to match your natural teeth.
What are the advantages of dental implants?
Dental implants offer many benefits, including:
You will have a more attractive appearance. Implants look and feel just like natural teeth. Implants can fuse with bone to become permanent.
Improved speech. Poor-fitting dentures can cause your teeth to slip inside the mouth, causing you to stumble or mumble. Dental implants make it possible to speak with confidence without worrying about your teeth falling out.
Comfortable. Implants are a permanent part of your body and eliminate the discomfort associated with removable dentures.
It’s easier to eat. Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants work just like natural teeth and allow you to enjoy your favorite foods without any pain.
Increased self-esteem Implants can restore your smile and make you feel more confident about yourself.
Better oral health. Implants don’t need to be removed from other teeth like a tooth-supported bridge. Nearby teeth don’t have to be altered in order to support the implant. This allows for more healthy teeth, which can lead long-term improvements in oral health. Individual implants allow for easier access between the teeth, which improves oral hygiene.
Durability. Implants last many years and are extremely durable. Implants can last a lifetime if taken care of properly.
Convenience. Removable dentures can be removed for any reason. Dental implants remove the embarrassment of having to take out dentures and the need for messy adhesives that will keep them in their place.
