Why choose dental implants?
Did you know that dental implants are the next best thing to your healthy, natural teeth! Dental implants have been used for more than 30 years and have an incredibly high success rate.
Implants are an excellent option to replace one or more missing teeth. Strong and stable, a dental implant restores a lost tooth so that it looks, feels, fits and functions like a natural tooth when implanted by an experienced dentist.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is structured on a thin, metal rod, usually made from titanium; this is buried in the bone and acts an artificial tooth root by forming an attachment for a replacement tooth.
Below we discuss some of the benefits of choosing dental implants:
Improved appearance – Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth. They preserve surrounding bone and support your lip and facial profile.
Easier speech – Poor fitting dentures can slip deeper into your mouth and cause your speech to slur. Dental implants allow you to speak easily with no embarrassment as they function like natural teeth.
Enhanced function – Implants can withstand a higher bite force and do not move while eating.
Greater comfort and enjoyment when eating –with dental implants you can taste and enjoy the foods you love without hesitation. You can bite naturally and eat virtually anything you want with dental implants. Unlike removable dentures that can feel uncomfortable.
Better oral hygiene – Cavities can’t occur in an implant-restored crown, or replacement tooth; however, you will need to visit your dentist as scheduled and clean and care for it and your gums and mouth every day, the same as you would if it were a natural tooth.
Increased longevity – Dental implants can last many years, often longer than bridges or dentures, if properly maintained.
Enhance your appearance – Dental implants help retain your natural face shape, and smile. A face without teeth can sag and appear sunken and sad. Dental implants allow you to maintain the natural shape and beauty of your face and smile.
