There are many advantages to dental implants, including:
*Enhanced aesthetics – Dental implants look and feel like your own natural teeth. And it is because they are designed to fuse with bone, and then they become permanent.
*Better speech – With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.
*Boost comfort – Because they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
*Trouble free eating – Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
*Raise your self-esteem – Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
*Upgrade your oral health – Dental implants don’t require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.
*Longevity – Dental implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.
*Reassurance – Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.
Dental implant technology has become the state-of-the-art tooth replacement solution because of its advantages over earlier treatments. And, with modern innovations in dentistry, most patients can benefit from them – even those who were formerly told they could not.San Marcos Dental Center offers a free consultation to see if dental implant procedure is right for you!
