If you have been thinking about replacing your missing teeth, chances are good you have recognized the surprising advantages of dental implants. You may have even had a friend or family member mention to you that implants provide an exceptional option for teeth replacement. Curious why everyone has such good things to say and how implants may benefit your smile? Allow us to shed some light on the details.
Reason #1: They Can Last Forever
While every patient has a unique experience with dental care – dental implants included – implants have the capacity to last for the rest of your lifetime. The posts will bond with your jaw tissue, which means they essentially become part of your jaw. As a result, they will not fall out or become loose simply due to daily wear. Take good care of your smile and your implants will remain in good condition.
Reason #2: Replacing Your Roots Is Powerful
All other prosthetics other than dental implants replace the part of your tooth that sits above your gumline – the visible portion – but they do not replace your roots. Dental implants, however, are posts that replace the root of your tooth and later anchor a prosthetic to replace your visible tooth portion. Replacing your roots results in exceptional stability and promotes long-term jawbone health.
Reason #3: Your Life Will Only Get Better
It’s important to recognize that if you choose dental implants, you will not need to worry about any frustrating changes in your life – instead, you will experience improvements to your quality of life. Here’s what we mean: Implants will not move, they will allow you to eat the foods you love, and you will be able to care for your smile as though it is full of your natural teeth.
