First impressions really do last a while, and when others look at you, one of the first things they’re bound to notice is your smile. Unfortunately, millions of Americans suffering from tooth loss find themselves uncomfortable or self-conscious about their smiles.
There are many causes of tooth loss – lack of proper dental care, dental disease, gingivitis, injuries – and in past years the only options for people with missing teeth were bridges or dentures. Now with cosmetic dental surgery constantly improving, dental implants are providing people with a more comfortable, durable alternative to dentures.
Here are some of the advantages of having dental implants:
- Long-lasting: Dental implants are durable and, with proper care, can last a lifetime. Implants are designed to fuse with the bone, and so they function as your natural teeth would.
- Convenient: Implants eliminate the hassle of removing, washing, and replacing teeth – as is the case with traditional dentures. There is no adhesive needed to keep them in place, making day to day life – especially eating and dental care – much simpler.
- Comfortable: Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. You can go about your daily life without worrying about them coming loose, and never have to deal with the discomfort of eating around dentures.
No one should have to be deprived of having a beautiful smile. Dental implants can help you to achieve the complete smile you desire and deserve, while eliminating the hassles and discomfort caused by tooth loss. While implants may be more expensive than dentures, for many people, they are definitely worth the price.
