The following is a list of only the top 10 reasons to get dental implants. There are more great benefits, which we encourage you to discover in a conversation with our experienced dental staff, and ultimately for yourself!
1. Dental Implant Replacements Restore More Than Just Your Teeth
Form and function together, a beautiful set of permanent teeth can take on the culinary world, send a beaming smile to your admiring fans, and ultimately prove over many different experiences that they are chompers you can depend on.
Confidence in your teeth increases your self-confidence in turn because your smile is an expression and extension of yourself. You can accept invitations to meals and social outings with confidence that you will not be put in an awkward position for want of chewing or enunciation.
2. Implants Keep Your Surrounding Teeth From Shifting
Nature hates a vacuum, and the pressure between teeth is greater where the teeth are close, compared to a gap in your gums. They will begin to spread out and wander unless they are restrained by uncomfortable hardware such as a retainer or braces, or until that gap is filled with a natural-looking permanent tooth.
3. Increased Self-Confidence In Your Smile
Many people are shy to smile when some of their front teeth are missing. This is a normal response that is shared across the world. It is not a feeling that you have to continue to live with. Dental implants will help you to feel complete and attractive when you smile again.
The emotions created by smiling alone can be powerful. Being able to share a contagious grin in a crowd or room brings a sense of belonging back to some clients who may have begun to miss it. You can do it!
4. Dental Implants Can Last For Life
With proper oral hygiene, that is! It never goes away, even with titanium tooth roots! Your bone and gums are still living matter that can get sick and infected, so they need help to stay clean and healthy. With a little bit of TLC, your new implants can go on and on and on.
5. Eat Whatever Food You Want, Speak Without Whistling
Dentures are a wonderful solution for those who have nothing else to help them chew. We have better options now. Some of the downsides of dental implants’ precursors (acrylic dentures) are corrected by securing them with implants.
Some clients may prefer to have many single-tooth dental implants for their bone health. The options are varied and the number of implants is somewhat customizable.
6. Implants Are Easy To Maintain
You can clean them with typical oral hygiene practices of brushing and flossing, like natural teeth. You can clean implants just like natural teeth. This saves time compared to dentures with adhesives and an external cleaning regimen.
7. Your Facial Structure Will Thank You
With implants stimulating your underlying bones, they will remain robust, and possibly even rejuvenate over time. The bones will grow back around the area once the body receives signals that they are being used again. This gives a youthful and attractive curve to your cheeks and face.
8. Improve Jawbone Density With Dental Implants
Your bones will not only become more voluminous, but they will also become stronger with stimulation. This will help protect your jaw from fractures.
9. Implant Dentures Are Comfortable
Being rooted in your mouth with a post, and starting somewhat under your gums, dental implants will feel like natural teeth, rather than a foreign object resting over your soft tissue.
There is no nerve for a toothache, so you will never have to worry about cavities ever again. (Only gum infections or bone infections, known as periodontal disease. Stay clean, and stay well.)
10. Live a More Relaxed and Stress-Free Life
Missing teeth can be stressful—not just physically, but mentally as well. They make you have to watch what you eat and how you eat, you may have to adjust how you speak around the gap, and they can be embarrassing. Get rid of some social anxiety and stress in your life with dental implants. You won’t be worried about your dentures slipping when you speak or eat, either.
