Why do I need dental implants?

The purpose of dental implants isn’t just aesthetic. Dental implants serve to maintain and stabilize bone structure and surrounding tissue in your mouth after you’ve lost a tooth or teeth. And if that’s not a good enough reason to get dental implants to replace missing teeth, here are a few more:

 

Feel confident again - dental implants can make your smile whole again, and act and feel like natural teeth which can bring back your confidence. 

 

More comfortable than dentures or bridges - no slippage here!

 

Withstand the test of time - it’s been proven that dental implants can last a lifetime. No need for replacements like other tooth replacement options.

 

Low-maintenance - you’ll have to care for them like regular teeth meaning brushing and flossing daily but there won’t be any added extra care such as taking them out, cleaning and rinsing them.

 

Cavity resistant - because they’re fake teeth, they won’t decay.

 

Look and feel real - you and everyone else won’t even notice them.

 

Retain your facial appearance - without filling the gaps of missing teeth, your face can suffer. Your cheeks and lips especially can look sunken or droopy.

 

Protect your healthy teeth - dental implants fit into your jawbone. They don’t rely on your adjacent teeth so your healthy teeth won’t have to be ground down to support it unlike a bridge. Dental implants also maintain the structure of your healthy teeth by disabling them from shifting into those open spaces.

 

Speak and eat with ease - dental implants are more secure than dentures or bridges so you don’t have to worry about them shifting in your mouth while you eat or talk.

 

Eat whatever you want - again, considering dental implants are screwed into your jawbone, they won’t move. So, go ahead and chew on taffy, bite down on that corn on the cob, and tear into that t-bone steak.
