4 Reasons Why People Get Dental Implants

Posted in Dental Implants

Dental implants have been improving people’s smiles for decades. And they’re only becoming more and more popular! Can you relate to any of these four common reasons?

To Complete Their Smile

Whether it’s just one or all of them, having missing teeth is inconvenient and embarrassing. How would you feel about smiling for a picture if you had a missing tooth? An implant is a lasting way to make your smile whole again.

Prevent Their Teeth From Shifting.

An implant can support a crown or bridge that spans the gap of one or more missing teeth. Filling in this gap helps keep the other natural teeth from drifting out of place. Drifted teeth affect the way you chew and smile, and can even make teeth disposed to wear or decay.

Avoid Removable Tooth Replacements.

Will a partial denture maintain tooth spacing? Sure, but with a partial come other barriers. Full and partial dentures will require frequent cleaning and special care, such as adjustments. And can you smile and laugh with the confidence that your appliance will stay in place?

An implant has none of those worries! It behaves just like a natural tooth and you can clean it just like one, too.

Preserve a Smile Permanently.

An implant is a metal screw that serves the function of a tooth root. Like a tooth root, the implant will stimulate the bone in your jaw. This keeps the bone strong and preserves the shape of your smile. And unlike the removable restorative alternatives, an implant is intended to last a lifetime!

A dental implant could change your life just as it has for many others. Is an implant right for you? Find out soon by scheduling a consultation with your dentist.
