Are you self-conscious about your smile? A missing tooth or missing teeth can greatly affect a person’s self-esteem. If you find yourself avoiding smiling, dislike close-up pictures of your smile, and cover your mouth when you are speaking closely with others, now is the time to find a permanent solution that will leave you smiling brightly and loving your grin. It’s easy to say that 2020 has been a stressful year for most people, and with the new year fast approaching, it is a great chance to do something for yourself and invest in a new you with dental implants.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants provide a permanent base for replacement teeth. Over time, the prosthesis fuses with the jawbone to create a permanent and lasting solution. Dental implants are the best alternative to regular teeth, as the look and functionality of the implant mirrors that of a natural tooth. It will be a seamless transition, and your smile will look flawless, with the implant blending in with your natural teeth. Our patients agree and have chosen implants over many of the other tooth replacement options available due to the natural and beautiful look at the completion of treatment.
Advantages of Dental Implants
When deciding what tooth replacement method is right for you, there are many factors to consider. One advantage of dental implants is not only the natural feel, as previously mentioned, but implants are also a permanent and long-lasting solution. It is not uncommon for dental implants to last a lifetime.
Other advantages of implants include:
- Dental implants are easy to maintain since they are most like a natural tooth. Brushing twice daily, flossing once per day, and using mouthwash is sufficient for daily maintenance.
- Being that implants are a permanent structure in the mouth, there is no need to worry about updating hardware as with other options such as dentures.
- The concern of bone loss in the jaw can occur when teeth are missing for an extended period of time. This is eliminated with dental implants.
- The worry of deciding what to eat is eliminated, as dental implants have full chewing power.
