It is perfectly normal to be self-conscious about missing teeth or wearing dentures. You are likely to worry about the appearance of your smile (or the way others may perceive you) or be concerned if your dentures are loose or ill fitting. Fortunately, a better alternative can replace your missing teeth. Dental implants offer both comfort and stability, which will give you restoration that looks and functions like a natural tooth.
The Natural Tooth Restoration
Implants look like screws and cylinders and can replace natural tooth roots. They attach to the tissue and jawbone to become a stable base for artificial tooth replacement. Many are now choosing implants over dentures because they replace a single tooth/multiple teeth and support partial/full dentures. The crowns and the implants help restore the ability to chew food and fill out space to avoid a sunken-looking face because of missing bone.
No Removal or Soaking Needed
Dental implant centers note that these are attached to the upper and lower jaws. This is why you don’t need to remove them for cleaning or overnight soaking. You will need not to worry about the implants becoming loose or ill fitting in the future. No adhesives are also required and you will fully enjoy a new set of smile that looks natural. In fact, the implants are nearly impossible to tell from the natural teeth.
The Good Candidate
Implants are right for you if you are in general good health. This means having healthy gums and enough bone to support the restoration. It is also important to be committed to proper oral hygiene to keep and maintain oral health. Scheduling of dental visits is also necessary for checkup and cleaning. It is best to ask your dentist if they are right for you.
Don’t let missing teeth wear your confidence down. Whether you’re looking to replace a single tooth or several teeth, dental implants are the right choice. Implants are used for decades and are proven with long-term use.
