Whether you’re missing one tooth, several teeth, or both of your arches, dental implants are a great tooth replacement solution for many patients, offering benefits that set them apart from other traditional restorative treatments, like dentures. Due to their unique structure and ability to restore the root portion of teeth, you’ll be able to enjoy the best aesthetic and health advantages when you rebuild your grin. Read on for a non-exhaustive list of three ways that dental implants will be able to improve your health and daily life.
Their Natural Look & Feel is a Confidence-Booster
While confidence may seem to go hand-in-hand with aesthetic, it also impacts your mental health and how you feel interacting with others. Many people who have one or more gaps in their smiles don’t feel comfortable letting their mouth show, which is inevitable if you’re speaking to someone. Plus, expressing your emotions can involve showing your teeth, so if your smile isn’t complete, it could cause you to withhold reactions and how you feel. With natural looking and feeling dental implants that are anchored to your jawbone, just like your home-grown pearly whites once were, you can rest-assured that your smile not only feels natural, but also looks the part!
Unmatched Stability Helps Make Your Daily Life Easier
The placement of dental implants below the gumline and into the jawbone provides a strong and sturdy foundation for your prosthetics to be attached to. For traditional bridges, alteration of your natural tooth structure is necessary to secure the replacement teeth in your mouth, and for dentures, you’ll need to rely on natural suction and adhesive so they stay in place whenever you eat or speak. With dental implants, you can complete basic daily tasks without having to worry about embarrassing unstable replacement teeth.
Reduce Your Risk of Oral Problems Connected to Medical Conditions
Gum disease, which is one of the most common oral health problems in the nation, affecting an estimated one out of every two adults, has been linked to serious medical conditions, like heart disease and diabetes. The best way to prevent gum disease is to thoroughly brush and floss, removing any plaque and food debris build-up that could attract harmful oral bacteria. Missing teeth can provide nooks and crannies for bacteria to hide out in, putting you at a higher risk of developing these problems. With a complete smile that’s easier to clean, you’ll be able to minimize your risk of developing gum disease and other medical conditions that are associated with it.
The day that you get to enjoy a restored smile again will be incredibly special, but as time goes on, you’ll learn about more and more benefits that you’ll get to enjoy with your new dental implants.
