Tooth loss can be an extremely difficult thing to experience. Not only does it affect the aesthetics and function of your smile, but it can negatively impact your emotional well-being and overall physical health. Unaddressed tooth loss can lead to speech impediments, soft and hard tissue degeneration, poor nutrition, and dental misalignment. When there is significant tooth loss, jawbone and gum atrophy can even cause severe dental pain and structural changes to your face.

Although traditional restorations, such as dental bridges and conventional overdentures are a viable and commonly chosen solution to repairing a smile with missing teeth, dental implants provide a more effective alternative. With the advancement in dental technology, a dental implant can restore a tooth from root to crown, providing lasting and realistic results.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small screw-like posts designed to fit within the space left behind by your former tooth to support an implant-retained device. Implants come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials, such as ceramic and titanium to meet patients’ unique needs. Your dentist will present you with all the available options during a personalized consultation to determine which type of implant is best suited for your case.

If you have been told in the past that you are unable to undergo dental implant surgery due to inadequate jawbone strength or spacing, there is a great possibility you may qualify today. With the ongoing advancements in the dental implant industry, such as bone grafting procedures and All-on-4® dental implants, patients are able to trade in their uncomfortable dentures and traditional implant bridges for a customized implant-supported device.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Below are just some of the many benefits that dental implants can provide:

  • Improved Comfort and Reliability

Compared to conventional dentures, an implant-retained device is supported by a dental implant surgically inserted and fused with your jawbone rather than resting directly on your gums. You never have to worry about your device rubbing against your gums, causing sores and tissue degeneration, or shifting out of place when eating or talking,

  • Natural-Looking Aesthetics and Restored Dental Function

Your customized restoration will be made from natural-looking materials, designed to deliver realistic and durable results. Lab technicians will take impressions of your smile to create a custom-made restoration that will match the natural shape, size, and color of your former smile. Results will be so lifelike, that most people will be unaware you even have an implant-supported restoration.

  • Prolonged Oral Health

Dental implants are designed to mimic your natural tooth roots in such a way that with each bite you take, the nerves within your jaw are stimulated, preventing bone loss and gum recession. Unlike other restorative devices, you never have to fear compromising or damaging remaining teeth with an implant-supported restoration.

  • More Attractive Appearance and Enhanced Confidence

Tooth loss can make you appear older than your age and prevent you from smiling confidently. Once your restoration is in place, you will look younger, feel better, and begin to notice an increased desire to smile. Studies have proven that smiling can boost your mood, improve your health, and make you more approachable.

  • Permanent Results

Although dental implants are more costly than other restorative devices, they should be viewed as an investment into your long-term oral health. An implant-supported restoration is the only restorative solution designed to deliver permanent results. Other devices, such as traditional dental bridges and dentures typically need to be replaced every five to ten years due to natural wear and tear.
