Dental Implants Create Beautiful Smiles

One of the most universally successful options for tooth replacement is a dental implant. Let’s look at the basics to see if they are right for your smile needs.

If you are missing multiple teeth, your jawbone will likely weaken over time. Implants can help restore your smile’s strength. Maintaining proper jaw support is a major benefit of dental implants.

Implants are placed directly into your jawbone. The bond between your implant and your jawbone will grow stronger by a process called osseointegration.

This is a large benefit for your smile, but it does require that all dental implant patients must have sufficient initial jaw strength to sustain the implant procedure. This makes it very important to talk to your doctor as soon as possible, to ensure that your jawbone maintains its strength.

Implants can last a lifetime if you take care of them, and they look and act just like your natural teeth. This improves such daily functions such as biting, chewing, and speaking.

Here’s a summary of the most common advantages and benefits of dental implants:

Boost your self-esteem. Having a missing tooth can be embarrassing to your smile. This can leave you feeling self-conscious about your appearance.

Improved speech. Having a missing tooth can affect your speech. Having loose dentures or other missing teeth can also cause your speech to sound strange. However, dental implants can correct this.

Eating. Loose dentures can make eating awkward and a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth can also make eating solid foods extremely difficult.

Positive oral health. Because dental implants are fused into your bone, this gives a strongly supporting structure and helps your jawbone stay healthy and strong improving long-term oral health.

Dental implants have thousands of successful treatment stories when it comes to dental restorations. In fact, according to a study published by the National Institutes of Health, 97% of dental implant patients were satisfied or highly satisfied by the results of their procedure 10 years later.

Dental implants can be a great asset to your smile. Thanks to modern dentistry, millions of people are able to restore their smile thanks to the strides dentistry has taken over the years in regards to dental implants.

Now, dental implants can be used for a single tooth, multiple teeth for a bridge, and even support dentures to help keep them in place.

If you have missing teeth, don’t delay talking with your doctor about dental implants.
