Benefits of dental implants
A dental implant is a surgically inserted titanium post in the jawbone used to support one or more prosthetic teeth. For many patients, placing a dental implant takes 6-9 months, but the wait is well worth it since you get something close to the real deal.
Real Patient, Real Results
Dental implants offer numerous cosmetic and functional benefits, including.
Natural look and feel: Dental implants are designed to mimic your natural teeth in every way. They look and feel like natural teeth, providing a seamless and aesthetically pleasing smile.
Stops bone loss: Dental implants stimulate the jawbone, encouraging the growth of new bone cells for jawbone regeneration. This way, dental implants preserve your jawbone structure to promote optimal oral health and maintain the facial structure.
Enhanced oral function: Tooth loss can affect how you eat and talk. Dental implants restore your biting force, enabling you to eat foods comfortably. Moreover, dental implants close mouth gaps and remain stable when talking to restore natural speaking ability.
Doesn’t affect nearby teeth: Dental implants are stand-alone teeth replacements — they don’t rely on adjacent teeth for support. Unlike dental bridges, dental implants don’t affect or compromise the nearby teeth in any way. In fact, dental implants stabilize these teeth by occupying the edentulous space that these teeth tend to shift into.
Low maintenance: Caring for dental implants is similar to maintaining natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups are sufficient to maintain their condition and longevity.
Flexibility: Missing one tooth? Want to replace several or all teeth in your mouth? Implant-based restorations can replace any number of missing teeth. Dental implants combine with other restorations to create comprehensive restorative solutions.
Improved confidence: Dental implants restore your smile, which helps you feel better about your appearance and overall well-being.
