Implants Mimic Real Teeth
When you are living without a full set of teeth, every aspect of your life will be disrupted on a daily basis. That’s why you will want to turn to a trustworthy dentist to help you find the right path forward for you. This is something we help patients figure out every day. Whenever possible, we try to set these patients up with dental implants.
You may be surprised to learn that modern dental implants work in a totally different way than any other tooth replacement option that has come along in the last thousand years.
Here’s their secret: they are actually inserted directly into your jawbone so as to become a part of your body. They provide a strong anchor because they don’t just sit on top of your gums like your grandpa’s dentures probably did. Plus, they don’t depend upon other teeth to stay in place, like bridges. When topped with dental restorations like crowns, bridges, or dentures, they have the capacity to look and function like real teeth.
You’ll Regain Functionality
At last, you’ll be able to eat whatever foods you want again, not just the soft things that are easy to chew. And with implants, your teeth won’t come out with your food or end up in your milkshake! They’ll stay right where they’re supposed to be. You won’t even need goopy adhesives to keep them there. As an added bonus, you’ll also be able to speak clearly again, which will help your social life, and your ability to place your order with confidence the next time you go out for steak or corn on the cob.
Dental Implants Preserve Your Health
As we mentioned, dental implants are engineered to bond right to your bone. As such, they transfer the pressure of chewing to that bone, just like natural, healthy teeth would do. That pressure stimulates the bone and keeps it strong.
Single implants also won’t impact nearby teeth. A regular bridge must be attached to nearby teeth, and those teeth have to be shaved down for the bridge to fit on them. If those teeth decay or fail, the bridge does too.
You’ll Look Younger And Live Longer
Our implants can restore your youthful appearance, allowing you to recover your confidence in the process. And with the ability to chew nutritious foods again, you will likely live a lot longer.
