Have you been looking for the best option for your tooth replacement needs? Does the idea of a dental bridge or denture fall short of your preferences for your smile goals? If so, it’s time you learn more about dental implants. In addition to scheduling a visit to our practice to verify that you make a good candidate, we encourage you to become more familiar with the benefits of implants. You may find yourself pleasantly surprised by the comprehensive way they improve your smile after tooth loss.
Benefit #1: Implants Prevent Shifting
As you know, you have an open space (or more) in your smile. Unfortunately, this opening will not remain exactly as it is for very long. You see, the remaining teeth in your smile will begin to move, slowing shifting toward the opening. Your smile will become misaligned. That is, unless you fill the space. The good news is that dental implants are like little placeholders, preserving the current alignment of your teeth.
Benefit #2: Implants May Last For Life
Patients are often quite focused on how long their tooth replacement solution will last. When it comes to dental implants, which typically require the greatest upfront investment, this is a very important detail: They are quite cost-effective over time due to their ability to last many years, if not the rest of your life.
Benefit #3: Implants Offer Impeccable Stability
There is nothing like the stability of a dental implant. This is because unlike other prosthetic restorations, implants are anchored in your jawbone where they fuse with your jaw tissue. As a result, after we restore or “top” your implant post with a dental crown, your new “tooth” will not budge.
