The words ‘dental implants’ may strike fear in some, but they really aren’t as scary as they sound. Dental implants are a great option to replace damaged or missing teeth while also serving many benefits to your oral health. The following are just a few of the additional benefits of dental implants:
Comparable to natural teeth. Dental implants are quite similar to your natural teeth in both looks and durability. They are very durable and have a natural appearance, while also functioning as your natural teeth would.
Long-lasting. Due to the durability of dental implants, they can last a lifetime if you take care of them properly. Care for your dental implants the same way you would your very own natural teeth.
Bone preservation. When you having missing teeth, it results in empty spaces that can eventually lead to additional health problems, like jawbone deterioration. Dental implants are the only dental restoration that can maintain and stimulate bone growth.
Facial retention. When you have several missing teeth, it can result a sunken in or saggy facial profile. Replacing those missing teeth with dental implants can restore your natural facial profile.
Speech improvement. Missing several teeth, it can cause for slurred speech or pronunciation problems. Dental implants can help improve speech.
Regular eating. Unlike the alternative options for missing teeth, your dental implants won’t be going anywhere when you bite into your favorite meals.
Confidence booster. Replacing your missing teeth with dental implants can help boost your self-esteem by restoring your smile.
