Losing teeth can be one of the most stressful experiences in your life. If you’re missing any of your natural teeth, you may be wondering what your options are to restore the healthy glow of your smile. Dental implants are the most effective solution available to improve the appearance of your smile and maintain good dental health.Dental Implants

Implants are small pieces of titanium that are inserted surgically into the jawbone. Their purpose is to replace missing tooth roots and serve as a permanent anchor for your replacement teeth. Compared to purely cosmetic options, dental implants have a number of benefits that make them the ideal choice.

Better Bone Health

Any time a natural tooth is missing, the bone that supported it begins to break down. Without the mechanical force of chewing to stimulate bone production, the body simply stops maintaining the bone tissue in that area. Over time this can lead to changes in the facial structure, a sunken appearance to the mouth and jaw, and increased risk of damage to nearby teeth.

The only way to prevent bone loss is to replace the tooth root with an implant, cuing your body to keep maintaining the bone. The implant will actually fuse with your jawbone and provide a foundation just as strong as your natural teeth.

Durable and Long-Lasting

Implants anchor your crowns or dentures to ensure that they’re stable and strong. No need to make any major diet changes or worry about your teeth while dining out. With your new implants, you should be able to eat the same foods you’ve always eaten.

For many patients, implants are expected to last a lifetime. Different factors may affect the longevity of your implants, but most people can expect several decades of use as long as they maintain their overall oral health.

Improved Confidence

The strength and durability of dental implants allows you to continue living your life without worrying about your teeth. The crowns or dentures covering them are made to look completely natural, and they'll be firmly anchored onto your implants so you won't have to worry about them slipping or falling out.

Since implants help maintain both the look of your smile and the bone structure of your face, they support both your appearance and your overall health so you can smile every day with peace of mind.
