What Advantages Do Dental Implants Offer?

Dentist appointment

If you have missing teeth, dentures aren’t the only solution. Talk to your dentist about whether you’re a candidate for dental implants. Implants offer many advantages over other tooth replacement options and have a high rate of patient satisfaction. Why should you consider dental implants? Here are just a few of the benefits that implants provide.

Natural Appearance
Although dentures mimic the look of real teeth, even the best-fitting dentures seldom look completely natural. They may slip when you talk or eat, and the way they fit can alter your facial appearance. Dental implants, on the other hand, are attached to your jaw with an artificial root and designed to match your remaining natural teeth, so they are virtually undetectable. No one but your dentist will know which of your teeth are natural and which are really implants.

No Special Care
Keeping dentures in good condition takes a lot of special care, from soaking to brushing with a special toothpaste. With dental implants, all you do is brush and floss as normal. You can treat your dental implants as you would any other teeth, and as long as you stick to a good oral hygiene routine and maintain regular dental check-ups, they should last indefinitely.

No Special Diet
When you get dentures, one of the first things your dentist will do is go over foods that you should avoid. On top of having to change the way you eat, you may never feel completely confident that your dentures won’t slip when you’re eating in public. Dental implants behave like natural teeth, so you can eat any foods you want without concern about damage.
