Eat the foods you want again
Nothing is as good as your natural teeth, so keep them healthy. But, of course, sometimes we need replacement options. This is where dental implants come in. One of the most common way to treat missing teeth is dentures, but these dentures do not come close to matching the power of your natural teeth. You can eat the foods you love again without hesitation or worrying about your replacement teeth flying out of your mouth.
Your jawbone won’t recede
A big problem with tooth replacement options like dentures is that the jawbone will recede. Jawbone recession occurs naturally once the natural teeth are gone. This is a major problem because it changes the shape of the face. People with jawbone recession often develop a sunken in look or develop wrinkles around their mouth. This makes people look much older than they truly are. Dental implants are made from titanium, a material that naturally merges with the jawbone. This process is called osseointegration.
The treatment is successful
Sometimes patients come into our office and are weary of dental implants because the procedure requires oral surgery. That can sound scary, but the treatment is extremely simple. In fact, we can place dental implants with nearly a 98 percent success rate. That’s a higher success rate than you’re going to find for many medical procedures. The implant can take about three to four months to heal, but once the implant is in place, it’s there for good. An implant can last a lifetime!
Implants are versatile
Whether you have a single missing tooth, large gap in your teeth, or entire arches of missing teeth, implants can help. We often use dental implants and dental crowns to replace a missing tooth. Our office is using same-day crown technology to restore missing teeth in a single day. We can also place a few implants around the arch to stabilize your dentures.
You’ll have more confidence
Missing teeth take a toll on your health and confidence. Whenever you have missing teeth, you might constantly worry about your smile. Implants can solve all of that. When you have implants, you can smile without restraint, and you’ll never have to worry about your teeth flying out of your mouth. And because the implants prevent bone and give you a fuller smile, these treatments can make you look and feel younger! The bottom line, you’ll have a better, more functional, more youthful smile that may last you forever!
