Your smile should last your lifetime, and with dental implants it can! If you have missing a tooth or teeth from periodontal disease, injury, or some other reasons it’s extremely important for you to get them replaced. Missing teeth can cause several problems such as crowding, tipped teeth and even the loss of other teeth. However, when you replace missing teeth you can prevent those issues from happening, while also benefiting you in ways you may not know. Here are just a few of them:
Long-lasting. A dental implant can last you a lifetime due to its durability, but only if you take proper care of it. You should treat and care for your dental implant just like you would your natural teeth.
Comparable to natural teeth. Dental implants are the closest thing you’ll get to your natural teeth. They have a natural appearance, are very durable and function just as your natural teeth would.
An appearance revitalization. One of the major benefits that stem from dental implants is that they preserve bone, which prevents deterioration of the facial structure, resulting in an improved facial structure.
Improved speech. When you are missing several teeth, it can cause you to develop slurred speech or pronunciation problems. Dental implants can help improve these issues you may be facing.
Self-esteem booster. With dental implants, you won’t ever have to worry about taking them out or about them slipping out of place. You can go back to living your life as you once did. Your new implants will literally give you reason to smile!
