Teeth are very important for a variety of reasons. They help us chew our food, give us self-confidence, help with speech, and ultimately give our jaws strength. Therefore, it is crucial to our overall health to replace any missing teeth. Dental implants are in many cases the best option to replace any teeth that may be failing, infected, or broken. Additionally, replacing missing teeth can significantly improve one’s confidence and self-esteem as well as decrease incidence of further tooth loss. If you are considering dental implants, here are some of the benefits:
- Dental implants look and function extremely similarly to natural teeth.
- Dental implants may be for as little as a single tooth to as much an entire mouth of teeth.
- Dental implants are exceedingly durable — they can last you a lifetime with proper care.
- Dental implants are more structurally sound and hygienic than a bridge.
- Dental implants are far more comfortable and esthetic than traditional dentures.
Dentures are artificial teeth formed to your mouth. However, the difficulties with dentures include poor fit and function and removal for cleaning a daily basis is required. With dental implants, fit and function of your prosthesis is optimized without requiring regular removal and there is no messy, inconvenient adhesive to secure teeth within the mouth. Properly placed dental implants cause no discomfort and do not adversely affect your speech.
