Teeth may be small, but missing even just one can take a big bite out of your quality of life. Tooth loss can make it more difficult to eat your favorite foods, speak clearly, and smile with confidence. While there are plenty of tooth replacement options to choose from, only one can restore both your smile and your self-esteem: dental implants! This state-of-the-art solution replaces the entire structure of a missing tooth, both the root and the crown, for unmatched results. Here are five ways dental implants can boost your confidence while rebuilding your smile.
1.) Eat Comfortably & Easily with Dental Implants
Since traditional tooth replacement options don’t replace the supportive root structure of missing teeth, they can only restore about 25-30% of your biting force. On the other hand, dental implants can bring back 75% or more of your natural biting strength! This means you will be able to easily and comfortably eat all your favorite foods, including nuts, apples, and steak, without a problem.
2.) Smile, Talk, and Laugh without Worry
Your mouth naturally changes shape after tooth loss. Unfortunately, that means dentures and dental bridges begin to lose their fit and become unstable after a few years of use. Dentures in particular are notorious for slipping, clicking, or popping out of place at embarrassing times. Since dental implants are anchored securely into the jawbone, this will never be a problem again!
3.) Maintain a Healthy, Strong Smile
Dental implants are the healthiest tooth replacement option for your smile. Placing a dental bridge requires the removable of healthy tooth enamel from the adjacent teeth, making them weaker and potentially sensitive. Partial and full dentures can also wear down your remaining teeth and cause gum irritation. Thankfully, dental implants are completely self-supporting, so you can feel confident in your oral health for years to come!
4.) Preserve Your Healthy, Youthful Appearance
Replacing the roots of a missing tooth (or teeth) with dental implants is the only way to prevent the jawbone loss that naturally follows tooth loss. Once embedded into the jawbone, the dental implant post stimulates blood flow in the surrounding bone tissue. This keeps the jaw strong and prevents deterioration, which helps maintain a youthful, healthy appearance!
5.) Long-Term Confidence You Can Count On
Thanks to their firm foundation in your jawbone, dental implants won’t need to be replaced or readjusted like other tooth replacement options. While dentures and dental bridges need to be replaced every few years, dental implants are designed to last 30 years or more. In fact, with the proper care, you can easily count on your newly rebuilt smile to last a lifetime!
