Having missing teeth can create many problems. Your appearance, the ability to talk and chew, and dental and overall health are affected. Many people who have lost teeth wish to get new teeth that are visually appealing and comfortable. Another desire would be to have the security of fixed teeth. Dental implants make all of this possible. Within the past 30 years, dental implants have proven themselves to be an effective and reliable means for replacing missing teeth and securing a smile. Dental implants are a notable procedure that has improved the lives of many. In this article, we will dive into the many ways dental implants can enhance your life.
Dental implants will improve your appearance. When you have a missing tooth, a dental implant can fill in the missing spot flawlessly. They look and feel like your own teeth and they are designed to merge with bone so they become permanent.
When missing a tooth, some people opt to get dentures. With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can move around in the mouth causing you to mumble or slip up words. On the contrary, dental implants do not move in your mouth. Therefore, they allow you to speak without worrying about your teeth moving around.
Similar to speech, sliding dentures can affect eating. All in all, the movement of dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, so you can eat normally without restraint or pain.
Unlike dentures, your dental implants become a part of your mouth. Since they become apart of you, you don’t even feel them or realize they are there. They provide full comfort so you can go about your daily life.
Dental implants give you back your smile. There’s no inconvenience or embarrassing moments taking out a denture. No one will even know you had dental work done. When you have a healthy smile, you feel better about yourself.
Unlike other dental procedures, dental implants do not require shaving other teeth. This leaves more of your own teeth intact, which ultimately improves your long-term oral health.
