Modern dentistry offers several ways to replace missing teeth. All such treatments can provide patients with improved aesthetics and increased dental function. However, they are not all equal when it comes to overall value and their impact on oral and overall well-being. Dental implants stand out as the gold standard in tooth replacement. On this page, you will learn about some of their benefits that make them the undisputed champion of smile restoration.
Traditional dentures might slip out of place during eating and speaking, especially if they do not fit well. Dental implants, on the other hand, are extremely secure. They won’t ever embarrass you while you are chatting with friends, and they are sturdy enough to tackle virtually any food, whether it is a crunchy apple, a juicy steak, or your favorite movie time snack. Plus, because dental implants are integrated with the jawbone, you will not have to worry about their fit changing over time.
A few of the benefits that dental implants provide for oral and overall health include:
Dental implants are dark in color, but they usually disappear once they are placed into the jawbone and a restoration is attached to their top. The restorations themselves are gorgeous. The porcelain used to craft them bears a strong resemblance to real tooth enamel; it even reflects light like real teeth. Plus, your dentist will pay great attention to detail as they design your restoration. Its shape, color, and size should all be an ideal complement for your natural facial aesthetics.
Dental implants also benefit your facial shape. Because they prevent the jawbone from deteriorating, they can help your face to avoid the “sunken” look that often occurs after tooth loss.
Most types of dental implant restorations are permanently fixed in the mouth, and you can care for them just as you would care for natural teeth. Excellent oral hygiene habits, along with periodic dental checkups with our team, should be all that is necessary to make sure your renewed smile lasts for decades.
