Plenty of things can change your life. Winning the lottery, for one. But when it comes to living your life to the fullest, there’s nothing like a great-looking smile to build confidence and make you feel like you’re putting your best foot forward.
If you’re missing teeth, smiling can often be a struggle. Along with chewing your favorite foods, speaking comfortably and naturally, or even being as active as you’d wish. Dental implants as tooth replacement can make a world of difference. Here’s why:
Dental implants can have a dramatic and positive impact on your personality, your relationships and your enjoyment of life.
Whether you’re missing one tooth or several, you can benefit from dental implants as tooth replacement. Since dental implants look, fit and function like healthy, natural teeth, you really don’t have to give them a second thought as you go about the business of living. You can smile radiantly, converse freely, laugh enthusiastically and eat with gusto.
We have treated patients who have walked into our office with their hands over their mouth refusing to smile. Once their dental implant placement was completed, they hold their heads high and speak with confidence. They smile broadly. They no longer feel embarrassed about the way they look or hesitant to engage in activities or conversation.

Dental implants offer advantages over other teeth replacement options.
Dental implants as tooth replacement are the standard of care today for good reason. Unlike dentures, dental implants don’t slip and slide in your mouth, nor do you have to remove them to clean them. You simply brush and floss them as you do your natural teeth. Properly cared for, dental implants can last many decades.
Dental implants also help protect your facial bone and healthy teeth. In order to fabricate and place cemented bridges or attach partial dentures, for example, dentists must file down the healthy teeth beside the missing ones. In contrast, dental implants as tooth replacment allow dentists to leave the healthy teeth alone. In fact, they help stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss, strengthening dental health.
Dental implants are safe and effective.
For 40-plus years dental implants have helped to improve the quality of life for countless patients and continues to do so today. Dental implant surgery is one of the safest and most predictable procedures in dentistry when performed by a trained and experienced dental implant expert.
When you select an AAID-credentialed dentist, you can be confident he or she will knowledgeably evaluate your needs, discuss your treatment options and answer all your questions. Required to meet rigorous qualifications demonstrating their expertise, AAID-credentialed dentists invest substantial time and energy into dental implant-focused training beyond their dental and/or specialist education.
See for yourself how dental implants as tooth replacement can change your life. You may not win the lottery, but you’ll sure feel like a million bucks.
