ADVANTAGES OF dental implants
Losing one or more of your teeth starts a chain of events
that can have dire physical and cosmetic consequences.
The most obvious result is a gap in your smile. Less
obvious is the loss of chewing function and the inability
to eat a complete diet that can result from tooth loss.
While these are certainly serious issues, a potentially
bigger problem lies hidden beneath the surface: bone
Your jawbone needs the chewing action of the teeth to stimulate it and keep it strong. Otherwise it will begin to disappear (atrophy) in the same manner that the unused muscles beneath a cast supporting a broken bone get smaller. Without the support of your teeth and facial bones, your face will begin to look prematurely aged. The good news is that tooth replacement with dental implants offers a solution to help prevent bone loss.

Improved oral health
When an individual has lost their teeth, usually a denture or bridges can be made. Though bridges and dentures can serve us satisfactorily, Implants provide better support and usually results in more comfortable and stable replacement teeth. It provides better chewing efficiency and allows us to have permanent fixed teeth without trimming our own natural teeth for support, or having to remove the teeth every day. Implants also slow down the shrinkage of our jaw bone which occurs as a result of tooth loss.
Improved Quality Of Life
Dental implants will allow you to once again speak and eat with comfort and confidence! They are secure and offer freedom from the irksome clicks and wobbles of dentures. They'll allow you to say goodbye to worries about misplaced dentures and messy pastes and glues.
Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth! Since dental implants integrate into the structure of your bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompany bridgework and dentures, helping to preserve your natural facial contours. No one will ever know that you have a replacement tooth.
Dental implants don't sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge does because neighboring te eth are not altered to support the implant. More of your own teeth are left untouched, a significant long-term benefit to your oral health!
An Investment In Yourself
Although dental implants may sometimes have a higher initial cost, when all the ongoing expenses of other treatment options are added up, most people would agree that implants are more than worth it! The success rate of dental implants is highly predictable. They are considered an excellent option for tooth replacement.
