Having dental implants is probably the best thing you could do not just for your oral health but your overall heath in general. This will include your emotional health too. Having a set of perfectly looking teeth will make you feel more confident about your smile and yourself.
We will discuss top 5 benefits of dental implants in this article.
1. Restore Self-Esteem and Renew Your Self-Confidence
Dental implants help you feel better about yourself because they allow you to eat, laugh and smile without reservations, and be pain-free and worry-free. Because dental implants look and feel like real teeth, your mouth no longer has to dictate how you live your life.
2. Improve your Appearance
A major benefit to dental implants is that they preserve bone and prevent further deterioration of the facial structure, and therefore improve appearance. When most or all the natural teeth are severely compromised or missing, there is nothing left in the jawbone to stimulate bone growth. The human body can sense that the jawbone is no longer necessary to support teeth and it begins to dissolve away. This results in rapid deterioration of the facial structure: lips fold in, the lower face shrivels up to create a witch-like chin, and wrinkles also develop around the mouth to create “marionette lines.” This makes the person look much older than they actually are. With dental implants, wrinkles and facial structure collapse is eliminated and you can take up to 20 years off your smile!
Even when only one tooth is missing, long-term aesthetics are usually much better with an implant-supported replacement tooth than with a traditional tooth-supported bridge. This is particularly important in the front of your mouth, where preventing a visible bone defect is critical for natural appearance.
3. Get Immediate Results
At Dental Associates, we can replace your missing or failing teeth with new, beautiful implant-supported restorations in as little as one procedure. Our dental implant team will give you a lifelong solution for a smile compromised by missing teeth, and you will experience a dramatic improvement in chewing ability, teeth stability and overall comfort. Keep in mind that each case is different, so we will be able to give you a more accurate timeframe for how long replacement teeth will take at your free consultation.
4. Be Comfortable in Everyday Situations
Unlike dentures, you never have to take out implant-supported replacement teeth. You can brush, floss, eat, drink and sleep with your dental implants because they are completely permanent.
5. Restore Your Mouth to its Most Natural State
Dental implants are the closest thing to natural teeth. When the entire tooth – including the root – is replaced, your smile will feel and function like natural teeth. Everything in your mouth will look natural, and no one will know you have a new implant-supported smile unless you tell them.
Implants = Investment
Getting an implant is very costly but it is one of the best investments you can make for yourself and your dental health. Imagine getting your smile back along with your confidence.
