Benefits of Dental Implants
We want you to feel confident that you are making the right decision when it comes to restoring your smile with dental implants. Below are just some of the benefits that patients enjoy when they choose dental implants:
The surgically implanted titanium post gives your dental restoration the tooth-root functionality that other restorative options lack. Once fully healed, this post provides extra-strength support for your implant. Unlike other restorative options like dental bridges, all of the hardware for your implant is protected by your own soft tissues, meaning you get all of this extra functionality without distracting from the overall appearance of your smile.
No Dietary Restrictions
Other restorative options may come with dietary restrictions to ensure the longevity of your restoration. This isn’t the case with dental implants. Your own soft tissues will protect the hardware of the dental implant, meaning you get to enjoy all of your favorite crunchy or chewy snacks without fear of damaging your dental restoration. The tooth-root functionality of your dental implant should preform just as well as all of your other natural teeth during daily tasks like chewing or speaking.
No Extra Oral Hygiene Precautions
Dental bridges often come with the added hassle of adjusting your oral hygiene routine to include brushing and flossing under and around the bridge hardware. With dental implants, you can care for your dental restoration just as you would a natural tooth. Simply brush and floss the implant along with your other dental structures at least twice a day. Continue to schedule regular preventative care appointments with your dentist, and your implant should remain in good condition.
Restored Appearance & Functionality
When you invest in a dental implant, you are investing in the overall appearance and functionality of your smile. With implants, you can look forward to a permanent and reliable solution to tooth replacement. Not only will you be filling in the gaps left behind by tooth loss, but you will also enjoy a dental restoration that functions just as well as your natural tooth once did.
Reduced Bone Loss
If you are missing one or more teeth, your jawbone density begins to weaken in those areas because of the lack of tooth roots. When you experience bone loss, this weakens the overall health of your jawbone. Additionally, patients who experience bone loss may notice sagging skin around the affected areas. With dental implants, you get the added structure of the titanium post which reduces the risk of bone loss and sagging skin over time.
