Dental implants are a great option for anyone looking to improve their smile. However, they have more advantages other than aesthetics as they improve your overall quality of life.
Dental implants are false replacement teeth that are fitted onto the jawbone during a surgical procedure. Such a procedure can only be carried out by a licensed dentist with the required dental equipment. But why should you consider dental implants?
They resemble and feel like real teeth
It is totally expected to be wary of such a procedure since it involves surgery. When done by a competent dentist, however, you can be sure that your dental implants will be more durable compared to other dental restoration options.
Dental implants give you the feeling of natural teeth. Some of our clients who have had implants fitted cannot even tell apart the real teeth from the implants, and this makes it easy to become accustomed to them.
They effectively replace lost teeth
Since they embody the natural characteristics of teeth, your mouth will return to its normal state of function and it will be like you did not lose any teeth at all. You can expect to fully regain your bite force and handle harder foods in no time. The implants are also cleaned regularly like real teeth therefore, you do not have to change your oral hygiene practices.
They are very durable and can last decades
Implants are the most reliable tooth replacement options. With adequate maintenance, they can serve you for a lifetime without needing replacement. Other tooth replacement options like dental bridges typically last about 10 years before they need to be swapped out with dentures only being reliable for about 5-7 years.
Dental implants are a great way to regain your vibrant smile and full use of your teeth. If you feel this is the best tooth replacement option for you, schedule an appointment with us today.
