Replace Missing Teeth Permanently with Dental Implants
Tooth loss can make you feel like you are the only person battling the challenges presented by missing teeth or navigating the sometimes-confusing tooth replacement options. Did you know, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than one-fourth of Americans over the age of 65 have lost all of their teeth?
Many others also suffer from the consequences of tooth loss and gradual bone loss, which include:
- Difficulty chewing
- Changes in the way you talk
- Embarrassment about the way you look
- Shifting of the surrounding teeth
- Bone loss — for the rest of your life
- Chin wrinkle and hallowing of cheek
- Aged appearance
What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
When an implant is placed to restore the look and function of a single tooth, it performs much as your natural tooth did. Dental implants restore the appearance of your smile and are designed to look and feel like the surrounding teeth. Being both comfortable and secure, dental implants restore your ability to speak and chew properly.
Some of the many benefits of dental implants include:
- Restore proper chewing function
- Implant-supported dentures or bridges won’t move or loosen
- Maintain bone and prevent bone resorption
- Allow replacing missing teeth without jeopardizing neighboring teeth
- Eliminate loose dentures and pain associated with loose dentures.
- Improves your speech and self-confidence
- Don’t decay or need a root canal
Whether utilized to individually replace teeth or as part of treatment like permanent dentures, implants lend stability and permanence, affording you freedom and confidence that cannot be achieved with traditional tooth replacement options alone.
