If you’re missing teeth, it’s easy to feel insecure about your appearance. You might avoid smiling, taking pictures, or even social gatherings because of your low self-esteem. There are several options to treat tooth loss; however, only one can give your confidence a boost while also offering several other advantages. Dental implants are unlike any other treatment because they replicate the entire tooth structure. Here are 5 exceptional benefits you’ll enjoy when choosing dental implants to restore a complete smile.
1. Look and Feel Natural
Traditional bridges, partials, and dentures have undergone several enhancements over the years to make them more realistic; however, they will always have their limitations. You won’t need to worry about anyone noticing your dental implants aren’t your real teeth. They are securely held in place to feel natural, so you can speak freely. Your new teeth are carefully crafted to match the exact size, shape, and color you specify to give you the beautiful smile you deserve.
2. Maintain a Youthful Appearance
Losing even a single tooth will cause your jawbone to deteriorate because it isn’t being stimulated by the root. If enough bone is lost, your facial tissues won’t have the support they need, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin. A dental implant is the only treatment to mimic a root to keep your jawbone strong. Your facial tissue will have adequate support to maintain a youthful appearance.
3. Peace of Mind
Dental implants have over a 95% success rate with the right aftercare. You won’t need to fret about having them replaced in a few years, like traditional treatments for missing teeth. Your new smile can thrive for decades by committing to your oral hygiene at home and visiting your dentist regularly for a cleaning and checkup.
4. Better Oral Health
Overall, dental implants improve your oral health. By keeping your jawbone strong, you’ll prevent dental drift to lower your risk of many issues associated with tooth loss, like cavities and gum disease. You will have a healthy, beautiful smile you’ll want to show off.
5. Nutritious Diet
You can look and feel your best because dental implants allow you to maintain a balanced diet. Your replacement teeth will have the stability of your jawbone, so you’ll never have to deal with any slipping or irritation. You can eat your favorite foods because you will regain as much as 70% of your natural biting force. There won’t be any limitations in your diet to prevent nutritional deficiencies.
Invest in Your Self-Esteem
If you’re tired of hiding the gaps in your smile, you can improve your confidence with dental implants. You’ll permanently replace your missing teeth to invest in your oral health and quality of life.
