The Benefits of Dental Implants
When people hear the words dental implants, their initial reaction may be fear, but they really 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 they blend in perfectly with the rest of your teeth. Here are additional benefits that stem from dental implants:
Natural-looking. Dental implants are quite similar to your natural teeth in the terms of looks and durability. They are very durable and have a natural appearance, while also functioning as your natural teeth would.
Lasts a lifetime. Dental implants 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 natural teeth.
Preserves bone. When you have missing teeth, the empty spaces between your teeth can eventually lead to additional health problems, such as jawbone deterioration. Dental implants are the only dental restoration that can maintain and stimulate bone growth.
Retain facial profile. When you have several missing teeth, it can result in 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 can cause slurred speech or pronunciation problems. Dental implants can help improve speech.
Eat regularly. Unlike like the alternative options for missing teeth your dental implants won’t being 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.
