Could Dental Implants Improve Your Quality of Life?
Posted on 6/21/2021 by Northstar Dental
Dental implants are prosthetic teeth. Dental implants are natural looking teeth, mostly made out of titanium. The prosthetic tooth is affixed to a screw. The tooth and screw are surgically placed into the jawbone. The dental implant fuses to the jawbone over time. This offers superior stability. The dental implant is a replacement tooth, actually it is the closest thing to a real tooth. Dental implants have a high rate of success and are common in our office as they improve the quality of life for our patients.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Would you rather, a missing tooth or a natural looking prosthetic tooth? Dental implants look like real teeth. They feel like real teeth. They function like real teeth. Dental implants improve your appearance and confidence.
Dental implants also improve your speech. If your tooth is missing, your tongue will find that spot. Your speech can be slurred or mumbled. With dentures, your teeth can slip around causing you to misarticulate words. In addition, should dentures slip they can make chewing a chore. Dental implants allow you to eat without problems.
Let us not forget to highlight the convenience of dental implants. Removable dentures take maintenance, removing them daily and adhering them to your gums. Dental implants are virtually maintenance free. You brush them along with your other teeth. With good care, dental implants can last a long time.
If you have a missing tooth, we would love to consult with you about the possibility of a dental implant. They have a high success rate, are aesthetically pleasing, and functionally sound. For a long time, our only option was to use bridges or dentures. We are excited to discuss dental implants with you and your loved ones. Please stop by our office or call to make an appointment.
