Do you have missing teeth and want to improve something about your smile, ask yourself these three questions
- Do you want the most natural-looking smile?
Because implants fuse to your jaw bone, which provides support for artificial teeth. Dentures and bridges which are mounted to implants won’t slip or shift in your mouth when you eat and speak. This tight bond fit helps to secure dentures and bridges — as well as individual crowns that are placed over implants and feel more natural than conventional bridges or dentures. A dental implant feels, fits and like a natural tooth and does not interfere with your normal everyday eating, smiling, and speaking.
- Do you want a hassle-free smile?
For some people, ordinary bridges and dentures are not comfortable or even possible, this can be due to various reasons such as, sore spots, poor ridges or gagging. In addition, ordinary bridges must be connected to teeth on either side of the space left by the missing tooth. An advantage of implants is that no adjacent teeth need to be touched to hold your new replacement tooth/teeth in place. Dental implants allow you to bite naturally, eat virtually anything you like, and brush your teeth like you would your natural teeth. Dentures on the other hand can feel uncomfortable when eating, restrict your food choices, and need to be removed for cleaning.
- Do you want a smile that won’t embarrass you?
Implant treatment requires healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. Meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits will keep your gums and mouth healthy and are critical to the long-term success of dental implants. Dental implants are fixed in place to the bone, so they won’t move, click or shift, giving you confidence in your smile. Dentures are removable and may slip when eating, talking or even laughing, which isn’t so funny and might embarrass you.
If you answered “Yes” to one or more of the questions, then dental implants might be right choice for you. The next best thing to real teeth, dental implants are designed to look, feel, and function like your natural teeth so you can be confident in your smile.
Because of all these advantages, dental implants provide excellent long-term value and can be a terrific investment in long-term oral health.
