5 Benefits of Dental Implants

Have you lost one or more of your adult teeth? Thankfully, there are a handful of tooth replacement options. Dental implants are one of the most popular because they have many benefits!

  1. Are Stable
  2. With dental implants, a titanium post is implanted right into your jawbone. It fuses with the bone to replace the root of your missing tooth. A crown, denture, or bridge goes on top. The result is a sturdy tooth replacement that is securely anchored in your mouth.

  3. Preserve Your Jawbone
  4. Loss of jawbone density is one of the consequences of missing teeth because the tooth root is no longer there to stimulate more bone growth than bone loss in that area. When we insert an implant and replace the tooth root, your jawbone gets fortified each time you chew. This keeps the bone intact and healthy!

  5. Are a Permanent Solution
  6. Implants are made from titanium, which is biocompatible. This means when we place the post, your body is unlikely to reject it. As you heal from surgery, the post fuses to the jawbone. While the crown will eventually need to be replaced due to wear and tear, the implant itself is meant to last the rest of your life.

  7. Easy to Care for
  8. Implants require similar care as your natural teeth! Brush twice a day for two minutes each time, floss every day, avoid tobacco, consume a balanced diet, drink plenty of water, and keep up with routine dental appointments. These habits will keep your gums strong and your remaining natural teeth healthy.

  9. Boost Your Confidence
  10. Missing teeth can lead to a loss of confidence. You might feel self-conscious about your smile and how you speak. Dental implants restore your appearance and self-esteem! Good self-esteem has a ripple effect in every area of your life, whether it’s your relationships or your career.
