When people hear the two words “dental implants” their initial reaction may be fear, but I assure you dental implants aren’t as scary as they sound. Dental implants are a great option to replace damaged or missing teeth and serve many benefits to your oral health. They’re almost like having your natural teeth back and blend right in with the rest of your teeth. The following includes additional benefits that stem from dental implants:
- Comparable to Natural Teeth- Dental implants are quite similar to your natural teeth in the terms of looks and durability. They are very durable, have a natural appearance, while also functioning just as your natural teeth would.
- Can Last a Lifetime- Due to how durable dental implants are they can last a lifetime, but only if you take care of them properly. You should care for your dental implants the same way you would your very own natural teeth.
- Preserves Bone- When you having missing teeth it results in empty spaces between your teeth which can eventually lead to additional health problems, such as jaw bone deterioration. Dental implants are the only dental restoration that can maintain and stimulate bon growth.
- Retain Facial Profile- When you have several missing teeth it can result a sad, sunken in or saggy facial profile. Replacing those missing teeth with dental implant can restore your natural facial profile.
- Improved Speech- Missing several teeth it can cause for slurred speech or pronunciation problems. Dental implants can help improve speech.
