Many adults lose teeth because of a variety of issues. While gum disease and tooth degeneration are both primary causes of tooth loss, facial trauma can also be to blame. Regardless of why a tooth falls out, there are now thankfully new ways to replace it that don’t involve bridges and dentures.
A dental implant has become a highly effective and increasingly common way to replace a missing tooth. These sturdy structures can be made to match perfectly with your natural teeth and provide a sturdy structure designed to last many, many years.
The Benefits of a Dental Implant
Many dental patients are now choosing dental implants over other tooth replacement options. There are a number of reasons why including:
Dental implants look and work just like your original teeth. They are solid, permanent, and fused to the bone so that they will last a lifetime.
They Don’t Hinder Speech
Dentures and bridges are notorious for affecting your speech in a negative way. With dental implants, you won’t have this problem!
Eating Is a Breeze
Dental implants feel just like your teeth when you’re eating and drinking.
Improved Dental Health
The teeth that support a bridge can weaken over time. You will not have this problem with dental implants. Made with a titanium screw and a natural looking crown, a dental implant is designed to last a lifetime.
Dental implants can provide a foundation for replacement teeth that truly look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Patients who lose teeth are often amazed when they regain their ability to eat virtually anything they want and can once again smile without feeling insecure.
Dental implants are, without a doubt, changing how many of our patients feel about their looks. Rediscovering the confidence in being able to eat, speak, laugh, and enjoy life without having to worry about their bridge or dentures, they can be life changing in a positive way.
