Here are 6 reasons to smile about dental implants:
1. You can eat with confidence.
When you have missing teeth, you may have to eliminate certain crucial foods from your diet, like fruits and vegetables, legumes, nuts and meats. Since dental implants function just like real teeth, you’ll have the peace of mind to eat what you love without any worry.
2. Dental implants look and act like natural teeth.
Because they’re designed to fuse with bone, dental implants are a permanent solution that look and feel like natural teeth. Implants closely replicate the construction of a tooth from the root underneath the gum tissue to the attractive crown; its the best tooth replacement option.
3. You’ll be able to speak with confidence.
Dental implants restore both your smile and your self-confidence. They are secure in your mouth and won’t slip or click when you talk. With dental implants you’ll be able to say what you want to say and be as active as you want to be.
4. Dental implants keep your facial structure.
Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that helps stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss. Retain your natural face shape and smile. Getting dental implants as soon as possible after losing a tooth helps prevent bone loss at the site.
5. No special care required.
Other tooth replacement options require special hygienic care. Get excited to brush and floss them just like you do your natural teeth. Implants are very durable, and, with good care, can last a lifetime.
6. Dental implants protect healthy teeth.
Dental implants don’t require grinding down adjacent teeth to anchor bridges or attach partial dentures. An implant is embedded in the open socket of your jaw and does not negatively affect the surrounding teeth.
Modern dental implants have been used successfully for over 30 years. This is the strongest available technology to support replacement teeth – and even more reasons to smile, they allow these new teeth to feel, look and function naturally.
Stories to Give You Even More Reasons to Smile:
When Linda’s tooth-supported bridge (which had been used to replace six of her front teeth) needed to be replaced again, she was told that it wouldn’t be a permanent solution or last as long as teeth restored with dental implants. Linda chose dental implants and turned to an AAID-credentialed dentist for help.
“The implants are more solid. Durability is better. You’re a little more secure – you’re not worried you’re going to break your bridge or afraid to go out to eat,” Linda said. “But get a good, implant dentist. You’re pretty much putting your appearance in the hands of this person.”
Erik said he chose a dental implant over other options because he was to be able to eat what he wanted.
“I wasn’t going to forgo chewing gum, eating apples and corn on the cob,” he said. “I can eat all of that now, no problem. I love the implant and I can’t say enough about how my dental team worked with me. Nobody knows that it’s not a natural tooth.”
