If you’re missing a tooth, or even several teeth, there’s an exciting opportunity to get new teeth. The technology for dental implants is better than ever, with a 95% success rate—higher than any other dental surgery.
Imagine where there’s an empty socket today, you could have a fully restored, functioning, great-looking tooth! Or a dental bridge that holds several teeth.
If you’re not sure whether you want to invest in a tooth implant, here are the top 10 advantages we’ve seen patients get from the dental implant process. Call Advanced Dentistry by Design for a FREE implants consultation.
1. Dental Implant Tooth Replacements Restore Your Smile Function, Confidence, and Self-Esteem
After an implant procedure, you’ll have a new tooth that looks just like your natural teeth. No more hiding your smile in pictures or hoping a new acquaintance won’t notice. Plus, your tooth will work perfectly for chewing any type of food. Get your self-confidence back in social situations, including lunch with your friends.
2. Implants Keep Your Surrounding Teeth From Shifting
Teeth naturally migrate toward an empty socket. The longer you put off implant surgery, the more your teeth will shift, creating gaps between teeth, changing your bite, and causing new wear patterns on your teeth.
But the tooth implant process will anchor your teeth in place, helping us plan and manage your needs for aesthetic dentistry and dental health.
3. Implant Restorations Look Like Your Natural Teeth
Whether you get a new molar, front tooth implant, or implant-supported dentures, we’ll craft them to look and function just like your other teeth. We use high-quality materials, such as porcelain, to make your new teeth glisten and reflect light just like natural teeth. Plus, we’ll color-match a new tooth to closely match your whole smile.
4. Dental Implants Can Last For Life
Implants have an advantage over other tooth replacement options: They stay with you for a lifetime. Each implant is an extremely tough metal tooth root that becomes part of your jaw in a natural bonding process.
That means you can use an implant for a single tooth crown today, then combine it with other implants for a bridge or fixed dentures down the road. This is a great investment.
5. Eat Whatever Food You Want, Speak Without Whistling
If you have an empty socket, you might struggle at mealtime. Your words might also have changed, whistling through that space. Dental implants fix teeth and much more. With a new tooth, you can eat any type of crunch or sticky food that your other teeth can take. Plus, it should correct a lisp fast. Call us for a free implants consultation and eat a variety of foods again.
6. Implants Are Easy To Maintain
There are no new dental care habits to learn after the tooth implant process. You’ll just brush and floss—and get regular dental services for preventive dentistry. Whether you get a single new tooth or several, it’s the same. Keep your routine.
7. Your Facial Structure Will Thank You
Believe it or not, losing a tooth changes a person’s facial shape. Under each missing tooth, the jawbone shrinks, which can shrink the chin and make the face sag.
But each implant is a new tooth root that stops jawbone deterioration. This can help maintain your facial features, especially if you get a full set of dental implants for dentures.
8. Improve Jawbone Density With Dental Implants
The jawbone (and all bones) become thinner with age. Thankfully, dental implants stimulate jawbone growth, naturally adding new bone material at any age. The process can even make your face look more youthful.
Plus, bone graft surgery is sometimes necessary as one of your dental implant steps, and that directly thickens the bone around an implant.
9. Implant Dentures Are More Comfortable
What are the best dentures? Patients who have tried both traditional and implant-supported dentures often choose the latter. Because they’re attached directly to the jaw through implants, they won’t slip on your gums or pop out accidentally. They feel natural while eating any food. Plus, we will make them removable dentures if you want to take them out at night.
10. Live a More Relaxed and Stress-Free Life
With dental implants, you can generally forget that you have them. If you have a single tooth or bridge, it’ll stay in place like a natural tooth. If you get implant-supported dentures, you won’t ever have to worry they will pop out accidentally or that you’ll leave them somewhere. Implants and tooth restorations will work like your other teeth, taking away a lot of stress in that area.
