Why Dental Implants?
A lot of people wonder why they’d choose implants over other tooth restoration options, such as dentures. Implants have many great benefits, and we’ll look at a few of them.
Implants look, act, and feel just like natural teeth. In fact, after they’re inserted into your gums, the only one who can really tell they’re artificial is your own dentist! This tends to make them the most stable and comfortable tooth replacement option, even compared to other fixed tooth replacements like bridges.
Additionally, implants last as long as you’re willing to take care of them. And the care is simple: dental implants only need to be brushed and flossed like your regular teeth to keep them clean and the surrounding gums healthy. Dental implants can’t get cavities, and don’t need fittings or adjustments as dentures do.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, dental implants offer health benefits over all other options. Any tooth replacement has some benefits, like renewed confidence and support for teeth which would otherwise drift into the gap left by a missing tooth. But dental implants also help stimulate the jawbone in a way that no other tooth replacement option does, preventing bone loss and facial collapse.
At the end of the day, it’s worth it to do your homework on tooth restoration options, and speak with as many experts as possible before making your decision.
