Do you have missing and broken teeth that need to be replaced? If you have been thinking about how to best address your tooth loss for long-term satisfaction and a strong, healthy smile, we encourage you to consider some very compelling reasons to choose implants.
A lost tooth should be considered a top priority. The longer the gap remains, the more damage it can wreak on your jawbone and your remaining teeth. Even if you replace your lost teeth with a dental bridge or dentures, the sockets in your jawbone that held your teeth’s roots will remain empty. However, implants are inserted into your jawbone, and will restore the support that conventional replacement teeth lack.
Implant Posts can Last for Life:
The post of an implant, which rests inside of your jawbone, can last for life with proper care and maintenance. While your dental crown or denture may need replacement after several years of use, the replacement process is significantly simpler. Your jawbone will not have changed shape as dramatically as it does without implants, so measuring for the new appliance will not be as challenging. Since the posts remain, we can simply attach the new prosthesis to your implants once it is crafted.
No More Cavities!
Yes! The days of cavities are long gone with dental implants! While you still need to take care of your dental implants, gums and mouth – you will be physically unable to get a cavity.
Dental Implants are Safe:
Dental implants are a very safe procedure that has been being practiced for more than 30 years. Dental implants are made of titanium and biocompatible material that is accepted by the body.
Since dental implants are designed to be a longterm solution, you won’t have to worry about constantly replacing crowns, bridges and dentures. These temporary options add up in price over the years in numerous visits to the dentist and so on, and not to mention, lots of frustration(Source: WebMD).
Bringing your mouth back to life is a major confidence boost! Dental implants look and feel like real teeth, you no longer have anything to be ashamed of. You can laugh and smile and feel good about how you look!
