Dental implants are an excellent option if you happen to have a missing tooth. Here are some of the many advantages to choosing dental implants:
IMPROVED APPEARANCE: Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent. You won’t run the risk of forgetting your tooth, or having it fall out.
IMPROVED SPEECH: With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip. There are also no adhesives, so you won’t have to worry about the adhesive coming loose and having to reapply so your teeth stay in.
EASIER EATING: Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Adhesives can come loose and cause your dentures to move around. This is difficult to eat food while having your teeth moving around in your mouth as well. Food can also get caught up under the dentures and cause pain while eating. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
DURABILITY: Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime. If you choose dental implants for tooth replacement, be sure to work with your oral surgeon to develop a care plan to maximize their longevity.
CONVENIENCE: Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.
