For a variety of reasons, patients may be missing teeth, including cavities, trauma, fractures, and gum disease. As you can imagine, missing multiple teeth may make it difficult to chew, smile, speak, function, and exude self-confidence.
A dental implant mimics the form and function of a natural tooth. The dental implant is a titanium root that gets fitted into a socket that we create in your jaw. Once the root heals, we place an artificial crown on top. The new crown is customized to match your bite and the color of your teeth.
Dental implants can also be used to improve the retention of your denture. Often times, especially lower complete dentures can be very loose. Part of this reason is the lack of bone that will hold the denture in place. Locators can be attached onto dental implants that will effectively hold your dentures in place.
What are the benefits of getting teeth implants?
Here are some reasons why dental implants are
Improved appearance: Dental implants look and function like natural teeth, so they can help restore your smile and improve your appearance.
Increased comfort: Dental implants are more comfortable than other tooth replacement options, eliminating the need for removable dentures that can be uncomfortable or shift around in the mouth.
Improved speech: Dentures can sometimes cause problems with speech, as they can slip or shift in the mouth. Because dental implants mimic natural teeth, they don't have this problem, which can help improve your speech.
Improved chewing and biting function: Dental implants allow you to chew and bite with the same strength and stability as natural teeth, which can help improve your overall quality of life.
Long-term solution: Dental implants are designed to last for many years, and with proper care, they can last a lifetime. This makes them a more cost-effective long-term solution compared to other tooth replacement options that may need to be replaced more frequently.
Overall, dental implants offer a number of benefits for people who are missing one or more teeth, and they can help improve your appearance, comfort, speech, and overall quality of life.
