Stop dreaming and get that gorgeous smile you have always wanted! Dental implants can restore missing teeth and create a beautiful grin that is both natural and permanent. With a few short office visits, the surgical insertion of a fixture, an abutment and an artificial tooth, Dr. Fenton can restore your smile. Here are eight other additional benefits that dental implants provide:
1) Superior Aesthetics
Dentures and bridges can leave your smile lacking in fullness and can give your face a sunken appearance. Dental implants fill in the empty spaces, create fullness, help eliminate wrinkles and give your face a more youthful appearance. And because they look, feel and function just like natural teeth, you won’t be disappointed with your beautiful new smile!
2) Better Oral Health
Gaps in your smile can allow food and bacteria to become trapped in your mouth. An overgrowth of bacteria can allow acids to take over and more easily erode your tooth enamel. Additional problems may also include the risk of dental infections and gum disease. Dental implants fill the gaps and restore healthy bite function. And since you can maintain your normal oral hygiene routine, there is less chance of additional oral problems.
3) Easy Maintenance
Unlike bridges and dentures which require extra maintenance and expensive products for cleaning and comfort, dental implants can be cared for just as you would your natural teeth. They can also be cleaned and inspected at the same time as your regular dental cleanings.
4) Restored Bite Function
Missing teeth may leave you struggling with chewing, which can reduce jaw strength. Unlike other alternatives, dental implants look and feel just like your natural teeth. Implants also help restore bite strength so patients can smile, eat and speak normally. Additionally, restored bite function reduces muscle atrophy and subsequent bone deterioration.
5) Better Overall Health
Recent studies have linked poor oral health with problems like Alzheimer’s, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis and other serious health risks. Fixing your smile can restore your oral health and create chain of events that improves your overall health as well.
6) Improved Self-Confidence
A less than perfect smile can alter self-confidence and lead to both depression and anxiety. Restoring your missing or damaged teeth can restore your grin and have you smiling again with confidence. Most patients are so pleased with the results of their dental implants that they only wish they had acted sooner.
7) Enhanced Durability
Dentures need to be replaced every 5-10 years. Bridges need to be consistently monitored for movement and can damage surrounding teeth and gums. In contrast, dental implants have no special care requirements, do not move and last for a lifetime if cared for properly.
8) Improved Comfort
Dentures can slip, pinch and move creating uncomfortable sore spots. Bridges can damage surrounding teeth. Dental implants never move or slip and do not damage surrounding teeth. Once they are healed, most patients can’t even tell they have implants.
