The Benefits of Implants
Dental implants have completely revolutionized what happens when a person suffers from missing teeth. It used to be that people had no choice but to have a false tooth that either floated on the gums thanks to a removable bridge, or use a denture. Now, people can have secure teeth that look and feel exactly the same as the original tooth did. Plus, it allows you to keep your oral health intact, whereas dentures and bridges were a bit lacking. To find out if dental implants would be a good fit for you, give us a call here at Smith Dental and schedule a consultation with Dr. Smith.
Why You Want Dental Implants
Dental implants can give you nearly every benefit that you would hope for after you lose any tooth in your mouth. Instead of having to suffer from a gap in your mouth, you can have an implant placed and feel normal. They work in your jaw the same way that your tooth did when it was there, and they continually cause the bone to remain fortified and growing. When you lose a tooth, your jaw bone starts to reabsorb since it is not being used, but thanks to the titanium abutment that holds the implant in place, your jaw is being worked exactly as it would for a traditional tooth.
When you have missing teeth, your self-confidence can waver a bit. Instead of feeling as though you can openly smile when you are happy, most people begin to hide their smiles, some stop smiling altogether. When you get a dental implant placed in that gap, you can go back to smiling with confidence. It allows you to feel good about your mouth, since no one is realistically going to be able to tell the difference.
Dental implants allow you the same benefits your traditional teeth do
You can speak without it moving, eat all of your favorite foods, and chew without the tooth slipping around inside your mouth. You can even go so far as to have entire arches replaced by dental implants instead of dentures, with the same confidences that a single implant has to offer. Did you know that dental implants also allow you to look younger? When you lose teeth, that reabsorption can make it to where your jaw sinks in, giving your face an older appearance. By using implants, the jaw stays strong, and your cheeks stay fuller, allowing you to remain more youthful looking.
