Do you miss your missing teeth? Have you considered dental implants?

Tooth loss impacts your life in many ways. Your confidence fades because you want to hide your teeth around others. Chewing can be painful, so you pass up healthy foods like crispy veggies and fruit. Some people even have difficulty speaking clearly with missing teeth, and all of these add up to a reduced quality of life.

10 Things You Need to Know about Dental Implants

What are the advantages of dental implants? Dental implants have numerous benefits, which is why they are such a popular tooth replacement!

  1. Dental implants are long-lasting, natural-looking replacements for missing teeth. 
  2. An implant looks, feels, and functions the most like a natural tooth compared to other treatments.
  3. Dental implants allow patients to speak and smile confidently and enjoy all their favorite foods. 
  4. Dental implants restore a full, youthful facial appearance.
  5. Implants can replace one or more teeth or stabilize a full set of dentures.
  6. The titanium in implants makes them biocompatible with the body, and the material won't deteriorate. 
  7. Dental implants prevent bone loss because the pressure of biting and chewing stimulates jawbone regeneration. 
  8. Healthy bone and a dental implant keep surrounding teeth from shifting into open space. 
  9. Implants have an impressive 98 percent success rate and can last a lifetime when cared for properly with good oral hygiene and regular dental visits. 
  10. While dental implants initially cost more than alternative options, they can last much longer, making them an excellent investment. 

Getting Started with Dental Implants

Dental implants are a fantastic tooth replacement but may not be right for everyone. The first step is to evaluate the area to determine if there's enough bone to place the implant successfully. If there isn't, our implant dentist in Aurora might recommend a grafting procedure to build up the bone and make it possible to get an implant in the future.
