One of the best options today for replacing missing teeth is dental implants. They are made of strong material such as titanium, and are surgically inserted directly into your jaw bone. This means that they are a permanent solution to restoring your smile, and look and feel completely natural. Here are some specific areas in which dental implants can improve your life.
Since they are permanently fused with your jaw bones, implants look and feel very natural. They blend right in with the rest of your smile, restoring your smile’s function and appearance.
Having implants avoids the discomforts often associated with dentures. You can chew normally, and are able to maintain the same diet as with all your natural teeth.
Implants give you back the ability to smile confidently. There are no missing, decayed, or broken teeth negatively affecting your smile. With implants, you can rest assured that your teeth are secure and attractive.
All of your remaining teeth are left intact and unaffected by having implants, so your long term oral health is improved. Also, implants are permanent so you may brush and floss your teeth normally.
Unlike with other appliances, implants do not involve any messy adhesives or cause concerns that your teeth will slip or fall out. You don’t have to be inconvenienced by taking your restoration in and out for maintenance.
Your teeth play a role in how you speak, so improperly fitting dentures are known to affect the speech of patients. When dentures slip, you might stutter or whistle when you talk. Permanently attached implants don’t slip, so your speech remains the same.
Implants typically last from 10 to 15 years with proper care, or even longer. They have one of the highest success rates of all tooth replacement options.
